Patient Observer (Former Employee) – Neptune City, NJ – August 14, 2018
I enjoyed my job, just not the pay. I had great hours, just wasn't always relieved on time. Had to fight for lunch breaks. I sat with patients doing one to one observation, ensuring the safety of the patient as well as others around the patient.
Administration/Reception-Part-Time (Current Employee) – Shrewsbury, NJ – July 31, 2018
There is no typical day at the front desk. The people I work with work hard. Everyone is very supportive and kind. Management is supportive and respects my role as much as I respect them. Class acts in my facility. The staff at Meridian work together as a team.
I learned how to be extremely sensitive and discreet to others needs and to see beyond their behaviors. People act differently when under stressful situations and compassion is a valuable tool when working at Meridian.
I have been trained on how to manage people with diverse cultures in order to understand and respect all walks of life. I have learned how to speak and respond to people who may have life altering afflictions.
Meridian has taught me perspective and it has helped me beyond the front desk.
Paid time off/free dinner to employees working night shift/good managment

Working at Hackensack Meridian was an awesome experience and I would highly recommend the company for employment opportunities. In addition, the management team is very interested in making sure that you have all the tools necessary to succeed.

Registered Nurse Intensive Care Unit (Current Employee) – Holmdel, NJ – June 21, 2018
I learned a great deal and I reaped what I could from working for this organization, but you reach a point when too many roadblocks prevent any career growth. The upper Executive management team appears to have a plan for growth and morale boosting ideas, but it gets lost in translation at the mid-management and hospital level. Unit managers do not support their teams enough. Truly a toxic work environment.
Unit management and middle management beat down their employees
Severe understaffed almost every shift, nursing management doesn't care to staff shift properly, nurses come and go, often they start looking for another job while still on orientation! Yes they offer you good benefits however it's not cheap.
low pay, working short ALMOST ALL THE TIME, poor management
IT Operations Analyst I (Current Employee) – Neptune City, NJ – May 28, 2018
Overall experience was satisfactory. It is a decently rate for the location. I was hired part time > 16 hours, and have been working 40+ hour weeks without benefits for 8+ months. They said that I would eventually be hired full-time, but HR has avoided the situation for months.
LPN (Former Employee) – Ocean Grove, NJ – March 24, 2018
From what I experienced working at Hackensack Merdian was the employees are not valued. Yes they give you jackets, lunch boxes and all that other silly stuff (great marketing) but what about the pay??? The pay for nursing is extremely low compared to the other organizations around and the benefits aren’t really that good either. There is no pay increase for not taking the benefits. They give you a lot of PTO time but good luck trying to use it, you can’t. And forget about trying to speak from someone from HR they NEVER call back. Working at Hackensack Merdian has really opened my eyes. Their buying out everything so then you won’t have a choice but to take one of there low paying jobs. This company is no better than Walmart.

Few thing make sure you know the hours and day you work if not hackensack hospital will not pay you correctly they will try you and keep your money despite the clock ins.or expect to receive a late check due to their mistakes. People ,especially the nurses and CNA will make you feel your job title if your a garbage picker guess what the nurses will treat you so disgustingly horrible you would rather just not be acknowledge but if your more than a garbage picker you'll have all the nurses sucking your hoo ha . The lack of respect people have here is beyond me oh and I almost forgot to mention this hospital is full of tricks.
