Loved my job and the people I worked with and worked for. Really made me feel like I was making a difference. It was very rewarding.
Central Sterilization Technician (Former Employee), Marrero, LA – January 7, 2014
Pros: very good insurance benefits (health, dental, vision, prescription discounts, employee discounts, 403b retirement) etc.
Cons: cannot think of any.
I worked a mid-shift, 3:00pm to 11:30pm, worked a lot of overtime. I learned a lot. After doing accounting for over 25 years, I was ready for a change and I was given the opportunity of a lifetime to learn new things and meet new people. It was a sad moment that I had to leave for personal reasons. I enjoyed every part of everything I did. It was rewarding – more... in ways that are completely unexplainable. I did a lot of online testing in which I received "Certificates of Completion". I was looking forward to learning much more and I would still love to learn much more regarding the medical field and what I was doing on a day to day basis. – less
Licensed Respiratory Therapist-Adult Critical Care (Former Employee), Marrero, LA – July 17, 2013
I worked for this company for over 10 years and gained a lot of experience, but they just don't show appreciation for their employees. This is a big entitiy and they can do a whole lot more for their employees than they do.
Staff nurse (Current Employee), Marrero, la – January 8, 2013
Pros: co workers, health benefits
Cons: i can not think of any
Current employee on med/surg unit and I LOVE it! 5 patient/nurse ratio. You actually get time to do the small things for your patients that you can't with a 7 patient load! I love all of my co workers. I've worked for other hospitals and this by far is the best hospital I've worked! I will be here for many years!
Unit Secretary (Current Employee), Marrero, LA – December 6, 2012
Pros: working with patients, getting to know them..
Cons: no breaks, supervisors who don't know how to communicate with employees/ talk down on employees
THE MOST ENJOYABLE PART ABOUT MY JOB IS GETTING TO KNOW AND BUILD RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE PATIENTS AND FAMILY MEMBERS. THE HARDEST PART IS HAVING SUPERVISORS AND DIRECTORS WHO TALK TO THEIR EMPLOEES LIKE THEY ARE CHILDREN AND NOTHING IS SAID..
Patient Represenative/Claim Processor (Former Employee), Marrero, LA – August 4, 2012
Pros: work hours for the billing department
Cons: flex schedules are assigned
To be employed at West Jefferson Medical Center is a sgtruggle each and everyday. Management is very poor when it comes to knowledge of job duties. Most employees do a lot of nothing depending on their lead supervisor and/or manager. It could be the best place to go when medical emergencies do arrive, but until someone investigate the real true story – more... of what is going on behind the closed curtains, this facility will always be marked as the "dungeon". – less
RN staff (Former Employee), Marrero, LA – July 22, 2012
A typical day at work was very interesting in regards to the learning experience. Management was very fair and supportive, as were my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was the learning experience in regards to the different aspects of Special Procedures. This in turn made it the most enjoyable part of the job in regards to the feeling of accomplishment.
