Working here you will be comfortable. I feel like this is a job you have on the way to the actual career you want. You don’t want to work as a MLA for the rest of your life. It’s a fun job, you learn on site and get to see a lot of cool things. If you’re trying to get a job it’s best to be certified in phlebotomy and have experience as an MLA. It is not a requirement though. You can learn on site for both. This job is perfect for students in college or young adults. That’s not to say we don’t have older adults, because we have a lot more older than young. Baptist is one of the lowest paying hospitals in Jacksonville even though we are one of the highest ranked by patients. You will only get holiday pay for Christmas Day, Thanksgiving Day, and New Years Day. BUT you will never have to be afraid of losing your job. Parking was horrible, but with the new lot it has been better. With all that being said it has been one of my favorite jobs.
Flexible for students, tuition reimbursement, never fear losing your job
Horrible pay, parking
