Productive at times but strong government union environment.
Call Center Manager (Former Employee) – Oak Forest, IL – June 30, 2018
A typical day at work entailed reviewing staff performance and reports. Preparing for union caucus meetings; KPI reviews with Executive Directors; Meetings with subordinate leadership team; HR review of staff time cards; distribution of workflow; queue monitoring. The most difficult part of the job was meeting with the union. Union didn't support performance goals or staff accountability, making it difficult the ensure best service to the client, The most enjoyable part of the job was the beautiful view of the hospital grounds, as it was located near a forest preserve.
Great location; good pay for union staff; Comp time for management since OT pay is not an option
Strong gov't union involvement, little autonomy to drive success when unions don't support staff accountability.
The job is what you make what make of it, give your best God will reward you for the rest.

Each day brings new experiences and challenges but you must be a lover of people to work at Cook County hospital. You must raise your self above the people who don't recognize your skills and push forward. You will be eventually recognized as new management arrives and improves things. You must be forgiving people will attack you verbally with games people play. You might even get suspended for doing the right thing but hold on God will defend your character and if you can stand the heat in the kitchen you might end up being a manager. Now you can successfully change things!
Teamwork, new managers
Vindictive coworkers and managers, unfair hearings.

this is a great place to work build camraderie with coworkers. there is high workload but working together makes the burden seem less burdensome. management is definitely not the best and often times questions don't seem to get answered. a lack of strong leadership is apparent at times. the system used is also not the best. it can be confusing and inefficient that can be very frustrating as well. overall you will not feel overly stressed as long as you pull your own weight.
sufficient breaks, sufficient pay, good work culture

nobody bothered you. hardest part was the noise factor from the buzzers on unit. easy part quiet file roooms. work place culture was okay no high expectations. the most enjoyable part of job was the people interaction.
