Get Your Experience, Then Get Out!!!
MRI Technologist (Former Employee) – Northern California – February 11, 2019
None of the management are MRI techs- most had no experience in radiology management. They didn't respect your personal life- the only thing that counted was staffing the sites. We are forced to work hours and sites that we don't want. They can make last minute changes to the schedule and if you say you can't do it, they'll write you up for insubordination saying you refused the shift. Management does not support you- you're the decision-maker at your site. It's so bad that nobody wants to stay on board. There's not enough staff to keep the sites open, so the supervisors (manager support) is forced to man the sites- they are on salary, so after they're done with their site shift, they still have their management work to get done. Your job security is good, because they cannot afford to fire anybody, so you're stuck working with coworkers that perform poorly. There's such a lack of MRI tech applicants that they have lowered their standards for hiring, just to fill the sites with warm bodies. If you're new to MRI, they will give you a job, because they will low-ball your pay. After you get your experience, go work for a REAL hospital/clinic. Everybody has to start somewhere. That's probably the same motto the managers have- the good supervisors got worked to death, then left for greener pastures.
Some coworkers were cool
Unorganized management, treat you like you're just a resource
