Anesthesia Support Tech, Endoscopy Tech (Former Employee) – Plattsburgh, NY – February 27, 2019
After arriving to work the first cases of the day had just begun, and so did my work. Stocking and replacing anesthesia equipment,supplies, and medications began almost immediately. Around 9am we would have a morning huddle, concerns and questions would be answered. At huddle staff were also recognized for a job well done. Throughout the day the tasks varied based on the cases, but I was sure to keep busy through the shift.
met lots of people all while helping the community

Easy you ran by the girls with the most seniority make them happy you succeeded. Yes job training was avalible but they had you do hours of it to keep your job off the clock. No mandate but then you work below state minimum for your patient to be safe
Resource Specialist (Former Employee) – Plattsburgh, NY – February 18, 2019
Resource Specialist job is not as it appears in ad. VERY stressful. Bad training process. Inadequate IT system support. Tremendous competition among peers and back-stabbing is regular event. Contrary to job ad, NOT a worthwhile career move.

while working at cvph for 7 years I learned 1 thing that in the eyes of the all higher ups all they focus on is the numbers. They don’t care how big of a patient load there aides have as long as it minimizes the amount of aides on the floor.
CERTIFIED HEALTHCARE ACCESS ASSOCIATE (Current Employee) – Plattsburgh, NY – October 10, 2018
Working at CVPH has its advantages and disadvantages. I feel more like a number than a person working here. I have never been acknowledged by my superiors that I answer to on how hard I work. I just get asked to work extra and when I have to decline I get ignored. No one should have to feel awful for something like that. I am always told the things I do wring, but never anything I do correctly. It is discouraging.
Overtime hours are always available
You get over worked easily, the union nevers helps when you need them to.

Pay is good but you have to have a thick skin. Stress is high. The only time you will hear from management is if you make a mistake or they want to fill a shift. They never have anything positive to say. The insurance is free for full timers but it is high deductible so be prepared to pay out of pocket for most things. The union dues you pay are money out the window. The union is all for management. If management can find a loophole in the union contract to benefit themselves they will. Feedback is supposedly encouraged but when it comes down to it, it is not welcomed. Backstabbing is a daily occurrence. The patient satisfaction survey is the only thing that matters regardless of promoting patient safety.
RN (Former Employee) – Plattsburgh, NY – April 29, 2018
Undeserved Micromanagement is insulting. The bush league managers were obviously promoted due to their ineptitude at the bedside. Feedback is not welcome. Just keep your head down and kowtow. Management needs to learn that human error is not a crime, it's an opportunity for teaching and learning.
Few and far between.
Management only spoke to you to critcize your work, just an overall negative work environment. Saw several excellent nurses bullied out of the place.
Worked there for 47 years . Enjoyed every moment .CVPH was very good to me . I also was a very loyal employee and would put my heart and soul into my job. I do feel CVPH knew that and took care of me as well .

Specialty Aide (Current Employee) – Plattsburgh, NY 12901 – August 28, 2017
I have worked in 3 different departments. For the better part of my career I loved it. Until my most recent department. There is way too much restructure going on and the managers are disorganized and do not treat employees with an ounce of respect. Its there way or the highway. Even when the union is involved, it is always about managements demands. There is no give and take.
great patients, good pay and benefits
poor management practices, difficult to know who to trust
Clerk III (Current Employee) – Plattsburgh, NY – July 24, 2017
I have worked there for a long time and it has been a good place to work. I learned a great deal while doing all my different duties as a transcriptionist, secretary and now a clerk. My favorite position was working in environmental services. I worked with some great people and met some very nice patients.
Need a change from sitting in front of a computer.
IT Support Technician (Former Employee) – Plattsburgh, NY – April 15, 2017
Lots of office politics, managerial nepotism, but fairly decent work environment, nice benefits. Not enough on the job training, or career advancement prospects; not a dead end job, but could be better in that respect, and more.
