"Office work."

Don't get hurt on the job.
Worthless pension.
Low pay.

Dead End Job
Security Guard (Current Employee) –  Derby, CTFebruary 6, 2019
Griffin Security Department expects the world from you while giving you low pay and little to no room for advancement. You get a 30 min lunch that can be interrupted if you get a call but they still take the time out of your check. As of recent, you go from post to post and the manager will talk to you if you leave the post for a second without relief. As a security guard you will do all sorts of jobs that don’t fall under your scope i.e. transport patient, vallet cars, even answer phones at telecom for the main hospital line. The pay is also terrible. If you don’t have a companion that makes decent money, don’t consider. Although, the benefits are really good and the community is kind for the most part. But be prepared to get calls all crazy hours asking you to come in if you join the security team. Also, being a “planetree” hospital means any security tactics are out the window. They’re all about “the patient is always right”. Even when they swing at you or bite you. Enjoy your new job at Griffin Hospital 😁
Pros
Benefits, great work community
Cons
No room for advancement, poor management

Great place to do an internship as it is a small hospital and friendly staff willing to help you learn and understand as best as they can. They are all very welcoming to students.

Friendly work environment; willing to train
Guest Relations Associate (Current Employee) –  Derby, CTApril 23, 2018
A typical day at work is greeting patients and family members as well as directing individuals to registration. The workplace culture is very positive as staff and management are very friendly. The most enjoyable part of the job is talking with patients and families daily. The hardest part of the job is greeting families that are seeing patients that are really sick or terminal.
Pros
Friendly work environment where all staff and management are willing to help
Cons
Slow-paced environment

Three Stars
Clinical Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Derby, CTMarch 12, 2018
Need more staff and doctors. It is a laid back place but staff talks more than they work. More patient attention. If you are just starting off as a nurse you should work here because its slow learning.
Pros
Laid back atmosphere
Cons
Not enough pay

Griffin Hospital
Medical Biller (Former Employee) –  Derby, CTFebruary 1, 2018
It has been almost 20 years since I have worked at Griffin Hospital so my evaluation of it may not hold true today. At the time they had a "PlaneTree" approach which made it a great work environment.
