Office Coordinator (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – July 31, 2018
First off I love work with the people my department there is just no growth. The patient that we see are all great to see the changings in there lives over the years has been one of the most wonderful things. I have been employed at CHKD for 11 years and keep being told that other positions I apply for would either be a pay cut or I'm over qualified. There is no reward or appreciation for long time employees. I am stuck, because the only position I can take now would be a Supervisor position and there are currently no openings for a Supervisor and a position is not going to be created for me so what are you to do.
Can take off whenever needed. Co-workers are awesome
Cashier (Current Employee) – Glen Allen, VA – July 1, 2018
I am always excited to start a new job even if it is low wages. Depending on the manager, the work load was not consistent or even among employees. Very thrifty meaning very little AC in the summer and very little heat in the winter. There was no employee appreciation and the managers were stressed out because of the District Managers.
Children's Hospital provides the community with top notch treatment of children
Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – June 14, 2018
CHKD is a very good hospital which includes neonatal and pediatric intensive care and top notch emergency room. I am very confident when taking my children here and I know I will only receive the best, most advanced care possible.
Productive and a great place to learn many opportunities for advancement
Patient Information/ Security (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – June 13, 2018
A wonderful place to work, but sad times also. We work very hard to provide a safe, secure place for our children and staff. Our main concern is providing the best care for every child that enters Children's Hospital whether it is for admission or just a clinic appointment. I have learned a great deal, working at CHKD.

STUDENT ATHLETIC TRAINING INTERN (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – May 8, 2018
Throughout my time with CHKD I enjoyed my experience. It was a different type of environment than what I am usually used to, but it was very informative. I learned a lot of key lessons about athletic training while I was observing under their trainers!
Health Information Technician (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – May 1, 2018
Management is very unprofessional and plays favorites with there employees. Very unorganized, hot one day and the next they're cold. Uncomfortable place to work, just get your job done and go home, if they are even happy with that.
LPN (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – April 28, 2018
I loved my job. There were definitely hiccups in the road with management shifts. I enjoyed working in the hospitals and at the satellite clinics. I would still be there if it wasn't for military orders.
Clinician I (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – April 21, 2018
The job is very underpaid, but the patient to staff ratios are admittedly the best in the area. There are significant problems with favoritism, and with uneven treatment of staff. Would not recommend as a good place to work.
work with kids
make 15-25% less than everyone else in your field in a 100 mile radius
Hospital Chaplain (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – April 21, 2018
A typical day included answering and responding to level 1 trauma codes to addressing special spiritual/family needs in PICU/ICU units. Provided spiritual care and informed on advance directives for critically or terminally ill children. Provide family bereavement services. Responded to on call traumas and codes throughout the entire hospital.
Patient Access Technician (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – April 10, 2018
Management will hire with little to no experience and not adhere to the schedule restrictions. Generally poor work hours for trying to compensate for high turn over rate. Crossed trained may be required between difference departments under same management. Benefits are the reason people stay. Low pay for heavy work volume.
