Great co-workers, vast variety of jobs to perform, must be able to self learn and teach in order to get into and work on office equipment, lack of training for new hires is a negative, not very friendly supervisors when needing guidance and assistance when asked.

This hospital is very busy but that does not get in the way of staff taking the time not only to provide exceptional care to patients but to each other.

Have been with the company for eleven years and it has the been hardest to advance to other positions. The union is the weakest in helping members with internal issues related to management and treatment of employees.

Since the Great 40% employee purge, the CAO has learned to optimize the mantra "at least you have a job" in dealing with employees and the lower level union.
It's true that you get what you pay for, the pay is low, the retirement expensive, ten year vesting, expensive low quality health insurance. It adds up to a less educated work force with a small world view .view

After 911 the agencies wanted to share data from their standalone silo systems and we were able to provide a cloud based solution that allowed them to search each others databases in real time.

Very caring environment, very easy going and nothing too hard. Get to work with people and great staff members, and earn decent pay as a first job. If you're looking for a job just to interact with guests, help one another find something that they're looking for, or really just kill some time, but still like what you're doing. I would highly recommend looking into this job.
Pros
Flexible, slow paced, friendly staff
Cons
Short hours
