Transporter (Current Employee) – Camden, NJ – April 12, 2018
Cooper is a good hospital to work for to gain experience in health care . You see a lot and learn a lot as well . The downside is you are respected based on your pay grade . Nurses are often rude and show no respect . They roll their eyes and speak in rude tones as if we are not important to patient care . Transporters are conisitently rushed . You have to have thick skin and show little friendliness to have some respect .

Fast paced always busy. Insurance is kind of expensive and you’re limited to Cooper doctors. Pay is the best I’ve recieved in my 10 years of nursing in NJ. Excellent teamwork. Lots of employee perks. Union.
I started out on Medical-Surgical floor. I later floated to different departments such as OB, GYN, Pediatrics, recovery and finally Oncology, Oncology was the most rewarding nursing I have ever done. There was always supervisors on each shift, Always different cultures to work with and take care of. Helping each other was the best part of the job so we could give good care. The hardest part was being short staffed.
Good patient quality and care. Has great advantages for employees, different discounts. Managers are professional. They teach employees to be friendly to everyone in the hallway as you are walking. You are not allowed to be on the phone in the hallway.

I really have nothing to say about Cooper. It is definitely a place for career advancement. You just have to give the place a chance for yourself. I enjoy working there because of the patients we help.
I was a division coordinator of the dept of vascular surgery. It was a very face paced enviornment. i enjoyed working with the staff and the Dr.s as well. talking to all the patients was also one of the things about the job i really enjoyed. Helping people is very important to me. The hardest part of the job was handling the constant changing of management.
close to home
constant change in policies. Too many for the staff to constantly keep up with.
very high turnover in my dpt, employee don't even last one week in that dpt. it's either you get fired or you quiet. this is the situation there. unrealistic goals, unfair rules/too many rules.poor management, they don't care about the employees, they're just there for the paycheck. treat employee and talk to them like kids. out of 5 managers only one is really qualify for the jobs the others i have no clue how to manage or do their job, they should all be fired and replaced. i don't see any future for that dpt, the structure is so wrong. I've been in the healthcare system for over 15 years, I never seen this. i only been there for over a year i don't see any future there, it's too stressful and chaotic, again they need to change the management team they don't know what they doing.... we're so under staff and one person is covering 2-3 positions.
it's not a place for people who has kids and family, it's only for people who doesn't have a life after the workplace.
overall i love what i'm doing, i love helping the patients. it's just management is against us and setting us for failure.
benefits are ok
paid holidays are coming from your PTO bank, if you're 1 minute late, you get a verbal warning and it's going to stay in your record, too many rules and unfair rules, low pay rate
