Mandatory overtime...they allow patients in until the exact time of closing. A patient who potential needs an EKG,X-RAY, Abscess Drainage, or IV can come in and now you're stuck until the procedure is over.
Pay is low for the amount of work you're doing. Especially at a slower site. If you're the only PCR on a shift, run and don't take the job. They overwork you while the managers sit in the office on their cell phones.
Wanna go to school and work? Tough luck. They won't work with your schedule. I only get one day off from school and work because it's "not fair" for me to do the 8-2 shift every morning before my mandatory night classes.
It's stressful. The medical field is very stressful and this company does not offer any self-care or time to decompress at all. It's like they don't understand what burnout is.
You work only 4 days a week, but the 12 hour days are rough. They drag and you don't ever get appreciated for the selfless work.
If it snows and you can't get there, too bad, they force you to use your hard earned PTO for something out of your control and if your site closes, they force you to go to another one.
At the drop of a hat you can be sent to a site anywhere in your region. Have plans after work? Not anymore because you're 45+ minutes away from home now! Have kids? Better call the baby sitter!
For a medical facility, their insurance plans suck. They're insanely expensive.
