Good student job, look elsewhere for career.
Senior Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – June 8, 2015
A typical day at work was your typical hospital work environment. You never feel like you have enough staff to adequately take care of patients. Retaining good workers was difficult because our competition paid much better (actually most jobs paid better). If you weren't trying to get job experience for school there was little reason for you to take a job with Wesley.
This wouldn't have been bad on it's own, but after several years with the company it became clear that they had no intention of developing their in house talent or investing in their work force.
Years of eroding benefit packages and stagnant wages insured that the most qualified workers or those with a second option abandoned ship.
If you only used the job to get through school and establish work experience it was a great way to get your foot in the door, but benefits that insured talented students stayed with the company (tuition reimbursement) have either been cut greatly or abolished entirely.
The management knew their workers weren't happy and tried many different solutions. Having more meetings with senior management, going around with a coffee and donut cart, etc. The problem is we weren't stupid, we didn't want coffee and donuts, we can't pay bills with those. Any management solution that did not include either better benefits or better pay was not going to satisfy us.
The feeling you got helping people in need.
Literally everything else.
