I had a Great Manager at the time I was employed.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Chattanooga, TN – September 16, 2018
I accepted a position in Environmental Services when I was hired. There was not sufficient training per say for my actual job that I was hired to do. Yes, there was general orientation which I participated in. Once I was put in my department, it was a rat race. I feel like we were really pushed to our limits everyday. We had to hurry...hurry to get our patient rooms, waiting areas, nursing stations, trauma room, and nursery done. And I took pride in my job so I wanted to clean the appropriate way according to Hospital standards and practices. But everyday while trying to get my job done in a timely manner and to avoid overtime, it never failed that I would get beeped to leave my floor and go clean other rooms. That was stressful because I still had to go back and finish my rooms while pushing myself to avoid overtime. And what was disappointing was I was only making $8.00/hour. And EVS is a hard job. On a positive note, I enjoyed working with my Manager and co-workers. And when I did hurt my back at work, Erlanger went above and beyond to make sure that I got the medical care and physical therapy required.
I had a Great Manager
Heavy workload, not enough help, and the pay was barely enough to survive.
