interpreter (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – February 27, 2016
Although my time at this company was short I did enjoy working here. i was able to learn new things in the medical field and enjoyed being able to assist important medical staff in helping and caring for my fellow Marshallese patients. I was unprepared when taking on this job which led me not to perform by best. if given an second chance I would certainly do better.
CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANT - Critical Care Unit (Current Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – July 27, 2015
I was told that when i applied and got the job offer that i would be able to go part time when i start college. When i let the boss know 2 months in advance that i would be starting school they told me that they would not let me go part time. They don't work with your school schedule what so ever.

Dialysis Tech (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – April 27, 2015
There is excellent training, great co workers. A typical day was stringing machines, accessing fistulas and grafts, vital signs, charting, cleaning equipment... The hardest part was bending over the chairs for accessing, holding pressure and keep patient turnaround time in 15 minutes. Enjoyed being with the patients
Distribution Manager (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – April 26, 2013
The work pace is steady and seemingly predictable. I learned how to manage staff members as well as oversee multi-million dollar budgets. The upper level management focused on the bottom line. My co-workers/peers were a very diverse group within all areas of the organization. The biggest hurdle I had to overcome with this job was wanting to be challenged more and accept more responsibilites. The most enjoyable aspect was the seperation between my professional and personal life.
values of upper management, lack of compassion for entry level staff
Supervisor Kendra Hubbard (Current Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – November 6, 2013
This is a solid place of employment. The job is rewarding and challenging. As an RN the call time is difficult to handle- full time nurses take an additional 4 shifts of call during a 6 week period in the maternal child department. You can expect to work most of the call or be called in at ANY time during the 12 hours. The employees work hard to bring quality safe care to the patients and the management seems to back their employees. If you don't mind working really hard in a challenging environment and working a lot of call this is a good job choice.
RN, Cardiology/Telemetry/Progressive Step (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – December 29, 2014
I worked Cardiology for 8 months. I probably should have started as Med-Surg, but once they hire you, they don't allow you to transfer until 18 months, so if the unit you get hired for is not a good fit, you either tough it out, leave, or get fired. Overall great staff and resources. It felt good to be a part of a cohesive care team. 12 hour night shifts are hard, especially on me.
Productive Work Place with a lot of learning experience
PBX Switchboard Operator (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – March 20, 2015
A typical day for myself as a full time college student was an 8 hour shifts Saturday and Sunday and more working hours during school breaks. I went through a fast pace training session with a senior operator and learned the ropes of handling incoming and outgoing calls as well as how to handle requests of in house staff. My coworkers were nice for the most part. The hardest part of the job was being stuck in the same spot for long periods of time, some days were busy some were slow. Most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with.
Nice people, pleasant environment, overwhelmingly busy
MEDICAL STAFF SERVICES MANAGER (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, Arkansas – July 16, 2014
WRMC was a great place to work, but the department in which I worked was undervalued, creating an immense workload and expectations that were unattainable. Being a non-profit, budget constraints demanded more and more from employees, creating a very stressful environment. I did learn a great deal and while I was intimidated by the physicians with whom I worked on a daily basis when I started in this position, by the end of my time there I was able to communicate effectively and had gained the respect of several of the physician leaders with whom I worked. My co-workers were always pleasant, though many were working under the same demands placed on me. I did have plenty of opportunity to utilize my problem solving and analytical skills to redesign and improve processes that were performed by my department.
nice people, pleasant environment
too much work, lack of job security (lost job due to layoffs)
Technologist (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – April 1, 2014
This is a great hospital to work for in terms of the newness of the equipment and the people that work around you in other departments. However, in my personal experience management from my department was inadequate. They had no clue as to how the inner workings of our department worked, and they weren't involved in disciplining those that were disturbing the work environment; people that should have been disciplined were instead left with running the department when they shouldn't have been. This a lot of times resulted in a high turnover rate of employees due to the un hospitable work environment.
Precertification Specialist (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – November 29, 2012
I didn't have the best experience at WRMC. My coworkers weren't very friendly/nice to me (I realize this is not required, but it would have been nice anyway) and the position was presented to me in a misleading fashion. It turned out to be the most boring, non-challenging job ever and did not (should not have) require a nurse to fill the position.Management was rigid and not responsive to questions. Transfer to a more challenging position during the probabationary period was impossible.
Overall good place to work; Start out/Stay long term
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – March 26, 2013
I really enjoyed working here. Really great environment (on nights) with teamwork and great nurses. Directors not really involved with anything and Assistant Director's are two-faced. For the most part, works well with scheduling, vacations, holidays, etc. No set schedules though. Benefits are good and affordable. Offers lots of opportunities for learning at Education center. Pt ratio on Cardiac floor is 6 to 1; but again, on nights, not too horrible. I wish I would have stayed there.
IT (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – December 22, 2012
Not many IT people in the IT department. They have newer technologies but old or non-existent processes. Very stubborn to change and/or innovations. Still 5 years behind on some things. Most IT employees are former nurses, lab techs, etc and their knowledge of the systems is only of what they used to do. There is hardly any diversity (color wise). Management incompetent, stubborn. I was happy to leave. Cheap health insurance, worst bonus ever! I've worked at better place.
Operating Room Attendant (Current Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – April 10, 2013
20+ surgical procedures daily Patient satisfaction and safety are key Management works closely with employees and other management to maintain goals Coworkers strive for excellence Hardest part of the job is understaffing Most enjoyable is the patient interaction
Certified Nursing Assistant/Monitor Tech (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – July 4, 2013
12 hour shifts 30 minutes or less lunch patient room to room rounding as soon as clocked in, answered call lights, answered phones, passed meal trays, fed patients who needed help eating, helped patients toilet, bathe, and other daily activities, helped ambulate and turn patients, took vitals, assisted with dressing/wound/ostomy changes, emptied drains, electronically charted everything I done, assisted RN's in anything they needed help with, watched heart rhythms and reported any serious changes, collected and transported speciments to lab, transported blood products, post surgery care for patients
I learned alot of minor medical, heart rhythms, teamwork,
management for the most part was pretty great. the company held annual company wide employee surveys that instituted the required changes in management that were better
co-workers in general were equally hardworking and teamwork
hardest part of job was the lifting and turning of patients who couldn't help themselves (up to 300lbs or more) and the never time for a break made for tough days.
the most enjoyable part was the meeting new and interesting people on a daily basis.
free medical advice from dr's
healthcare so minimal lunch break and no other breaks (no time)
