Toxic Work Environment with No Room For Growth
Administrative Systems Specialist (Former Employee) – Exeter, NH – January 7, 2019
Exeter Hospital was a very hostile and toxic environment to work for. HR and the manager were dishonest and misleading of the job role, promoting the role as a QC and data analysis based position with some occasional work with administration. This was not the case and the position was a backup secretary position, with 3 days designated as a secretary and 2 days of secretary work with the occasional opportunity for data reporting. The main role of this position requires you to answer the phone (which was NOT mentioned in the interview that the position is phone based) and answer the beckoning call of 20 different people within the hospital at once, all expecting you to make them a priority. Many of the nurses and physical therapists are extremely rude, unprofessional and talk down to you if you are a non-clinical staff or hang up on you if you cannot give them what they want. Management was not very proactive about my concerns until the situation was significantly escalated. Verbal harassment was also an issue in this role, not only from other internal staff, but from outside vendors as well. The only positive and enjoyable part of this job was the occasional free lunch. If you value workplace culture, work-life balance, and team collaboration, this is not the place to work.
No breaks, stressful job, toxic environment
