The focus and management of the hospital changed ,the CEO on down. At that time, the direction moved away from the patient to production. I could no longer keep up nor did I want to work under this new direction. I was tenured and could see what was happening to tenured staff and management; even the MD hospitalists. I lost my passion.
Great place to work if you have no life. Work long long hours for little pay. Advancement in the company is who you know not what you know.
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – North Carolina – August 7, 2018
CNA & RN's are rude. Your made to feel like your worthless. Not enough worker at times. Over worked. Only given one uniform. More management training is needed. Its who you know not what you know that helps with this company. DETAILS are a must, must be aware of the diets at all times. Must be able to count will talking to another person .
Short breaks, not enough worker, high turn over rate
Public Safety Officer (Former Employee) – Gastonia, NC – August 5, 2018
very hard and fast pace environment, always handling call reports, and monitoring cameras. Management to an extent was fair and just. Continuing education was always a plus. Enjoyed the team work everyone showed, but the hardest part was handling certain types of situations that would put myself in harms way.
This hospital is old and seemed dirty and needed new equipment. The management has changed and turned into a few friends who show favoritism. Lots of the employees have worked there for years and are not welcoming to newcomers.
Operations Team Leader (Former Employee) – Gastonia, NC – June 28, 2018
Time management in this position is the key to success. Excellent Customer Service Skills and a Team Player. I learned in this position to never be judgmental toward and employee or patient as you do not know what may be going on in there lives. Treat them as you want to be treated Every Time, Every Day!
It's an okay place to work. The upper management keeps adding more and more work to positions without adjusting pay reasonably. The people you work with tend to make or break the job, as well as the department. In all honesty, the worst part about the job is the pay. I feel as though working at a hospital sounds like you'd make a decent living. It's rather laughable.
Intern (Former Employee) – Gastonia, NC – May 29, 2018
Caring facility that provided both education and overall good experience. There was great support from the management and physicians. They were willingly and always available to discuss any and all issues or questions I had.
Caring facility that provided both education and recognition for jobs well done. Support from management and physicians for all staff.Employee suggestions and concerns taken willingly and management always available to discuss any and all issues
Because of living 45-60 minutes away, travel became an issue.
Upbeat staff always positive and supportive of fellow employees and patients.
PATIENT SERVICE SPECIALIST II (Current Employee) – Gastonia, NC – May 14, 2018
I love what I do as a Patient Service Specialist. Typical day for me is greeting and checking out patients answering phones collecting co-pays. Also, I called pt to schedule health maintenance appointments. Scanning paper work is also apart of my duties. I try very hard to treat each patient with the respect they deserve complimenting them in all honesty through out the day. I love people and I'm willing to help whom ever I can. Caromont is a wonderful place to work. I have been secure in my job for over 15 years and that mean a lot to me.
Caromont is a great place to work. it is a very busy and can be stressful job. The hardest part about the job is trying balance the work load with very limited staff. the most enjoyable part of the job is the some of the team work. great staff and many are hard working.
