Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Roanoke, VA – February 3, 2019
I worked at Carilion for four years. I would not recommend it. Carilion does everything bassackwards. Their depts absolutely will not support their staff. They are out of touch and only care about themselves.

Good place to work. Plenty of job security! Always pushing people to better themselves. Evaluations every year make you eligible for raises, which is great. They also assist in furthering your education with tuition reimbursement.
Tech II environmental services (Former Employee) – Roanoke, VA – January 9, 2019
I am joyed working at Carilion environmental services. At time management had issuesBut they were able to fix scheduling was always an issue people not showing up for work having to work overtime having to correct people on their jobs which caused conflict between me and those because of relationship status in between management and employees other than that I had a great time working for Carilion.
Application Analyst III (Current Employee) – Roanoke, VA – January 4, 2019
Carilion is a fine health system. Most of the people I know receive healthcare at Carilion facilities. The clinical facilities may be fine places to work, but the IT department is not. It is perhaps the most toxic and dysfunctional environment I've ever worked in.
Flex Time Clinic Dietitian (Current Employee) – Christiansburg, VA – January 2, 2019
I loved working here. I would have loved to get a full-time position but they were only hiring for PRN. They mentored me and took time to train me as it was my first job. They were extremely patient and flexible as I juggled this and another job in Northern Virginia. Would highly recommend this company! The only downside is the pay is lower than many places elsewhere in Virginia but the cost of living is lower too.

Carilion focuses on improving the care to its patients and improving the overall health to the community. On a typical day we are working through process improvements or how to integrate new technologies into the environment. Meetings will be spent around staff development and monitoring the improvements we are making in our organization.
certified biomedical technician (Former Employee) – Roanoke, VA – November 20, 2018
AM : morning meeting to address any problems or situations. get started on repairs. Some times we travel to a different hospital/clinic Get the equipment up and running. Learned a lot of trouble shooting skills on my own because I didn't get formal training. also learned people skills from servicing equipment at outlying facilities. our management was young and their lack of experience showed. The hardest part of the job was making do when you didn't anything to do with. The most enjoyable part of the job was the thanks for a job well done from the people that were counting on you to get their equipment fixed so they could count this day as a productive one.
Department Secretary - Rehabilitation Center (Former Employee) – Roanoke, VA – November 19, 2018
Employees were always being rushed to do more with less time. Management style was like a dictatorship. I learned a lot about working in different areas. The hardest part of the job was always being rushed. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new things.
Patient Access Representative (Former Employee) – Lexington Va/Stonewall Jackson Hospital – November 15, 2018
I was a new employee for overnight shift. Had a person train me for a few weeks then I was left on my own. They expected me to know everything. It would get really busy at night sometimes. I just felt so overwhelmed and still not sure how to do everything. I think a new employee should have more training and there needs to be at least two people working the front end in the ER every night ! To much for just one person ! There is also a lot of bullying allowed !! Can't trust anyone there ! Also see were they are hiring for my position again ! That should tell you something !! Red flag for sure !
Cant think of any !
No lunch break, needs to be at least two people for over night shift especially for someone that just started !
As a patient observation assistant my life could be in danger at any moment.
PATIENT OBSERVATION ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Roanoke, VA – October 19, 2018
This was the toughest job I ever had to do. It has its many rewarding points as well. But most of the time I worked with suicidal patients who needed watching 25/7 or patients on drugs who were a danger to themselves or others. Sometimes it was just dementia patients and that always made me sad. My job was to protest all of these from hurting themselves while still providing basic medical care and daily cares of living mine bathing and shaving. But after seeing people who had shot rhemselves or stabbed themselves in an attempt to end their life I knew the lab life was the path for me. I could still save lives and help treatment yet on the other side of care.
Seeing people realize just how much their choices affected their loved ones.
Worked with violent people who could try to harm you.
