Was stressful - as a RN got tired of managers and other employees asking "why would you want to come work here"...it's as if you should be expected to lower yourself to fit in here - VERY HARD to fit in if your RN on floors - mostly staffed with LPNs management is the only rn around - so if makes you feel like your lowering your standards as rn to work for them-

Long and mandated more then any place I ever worked at. If you want allot of hours and don't mind working doubles especially on weekends and paydays then it's good - if you need to have work life balance not so good - no advance notice just over the loud speaker they announce your not allowed to leave- every once in awhile it's ok but gets old after awhile knowing people will call out and your stuck picking up the slack

The amount of time during the hiring process varies. If you haven't completed paperwork on time or receive a physical, your need for employment will be prolonged.

The first step in the process is completing a written test to determine if you're qualified to attend the CNA course for 3 whole weeks. You must score a 80 or higher on the text. If you receive a lower score, you will have to wait till 3 months later to apply completing the same written test. Before the course begins, you'll undergo a serious of filing out paperwork plus an interview. The staff in the personnel office will explain the procedure for this process and background checks. If all goes well, you'll be notified by phone to begin the 3 week course. Once you get pass this first phase, the experience of training takes off!
