Volunteer (Current Employee) – Palm Beach, FL – October 31, 2018
I work as a volunteer at the front desk, greeting visitors, giving them passes to go to a patients room, answering phones, and assisting discharges. I arrive at 8:00 a.m. and I sit at the main lobby giving visitors passes, answer phone calls with other facilities asking for patient rooms, and covering for the security guard when she gets backed up.
Radiation Therapist (Current Employee) – Lake Worth, FL – May 6, 2018
I enjoy all my days at work. The sense of teamwork and a positive culture makes my job very rewarding. Moreover, patients are outgoing for the most part, given their circumstances. Management is approachable, and everyone treats each other as equals.

Secretary and student nurse (Former Employee) – Boca Raton, FL – November 14, 2018
everyday at work is a great day, i make the best out of everything and situation even if i sometimes feel like the sky is falling down. what i mean by that is extremely busy and everything seems to happened at once, or the unexpected. You dissect everything and take one thing at the time. Its a fun environment, staff are very positive and helpful you never feel alone and always learning something new.

Registrar (Former Employee) – Atlantis, FL – May 22, 2018
I registered patients in the Emergency room, A very fast paced area, learned something new everyday the training was good and liked the workplace.Most enjoyable part of my day was helping the patients.
No lunch or breaks at times because we were so busy.
Overall a good place to work. The patient-nurse ratio is often too high. Pay is adequate. The management on my unit is caring and approachable. Coworkers usually ban together to get the job done. Starting here as a new graduate nurse, I learned a lot and found caring and capable mentors.
Phlebotomist/coordinator (Former Employee) – Atlantis, FL – February 28, 2018
The pay is OK,but not satisfactory that's why a lot of the new hires has little to no experience and they leave as soon as better opportunity arises.they are always understaffed specially the night shift.lab manager or director shows favoritism when it comes to disciplinary actions.promotion is not base on merit but rather who is in cahoots with him.
Lots of patients, ability to connect with different cultures, using Spanish to communicate with patients. Coworkers were friendly, nursing staff was helpful. Hardest part is dealing with patients frustrations. Most enjoyable part was hearing patients thank you for their experience.
There is no management at the hospital in regards to the supply chain. The company hired some random person who had no knowledge of the computer systems or how to manage people in general. When I would ask the new manager how to do a certain task his response was "I DON'T KNOW". I must be mistaken as to what managers are suppose to do in a company. To my knowledge the manager should be able to do every job of the people he or she manages. The new "MANAGER" had no clue about anything.There were up to 8 job vacancies in the supply chain as a whole at one point. It took the MGMT almost a year to hire one person and when they did the person left in less than a month. I personally did every supply chain tech job in the warehouse and the OR. I was thrown into the receiver position with one day training. The person who was doing the receiving before me left due to the fact he was doing a two man job by himself for about 6 months and found another position at a different hospital. The receiving position is a two man job, I was expected to receive all 200 plus packages every day while doing other duties just like the person before me. I asked the MGMT for help several times and they refused to give me any. " You've got this" was what I was told several times. Instead of fixing the problem the MGMT did nothing. So I was not getting the two man job done by myself and was being reprimanded for not being able to do the receiving tasks in one day. So I would NEVER recommend this job to anyone, even if I did not like the person. I used to LIKE going to work there which is the worst part aboutmore... all this. Overtime employees quit and the remaining employees were left to do the jobs of multiple people everyday for over a period of months. It may seem like I am a disgruntled employee but I am not. Before all the job vacancies at the facilities I enjoyed going to work there. It was when the MGMT failed their employees and failed to manage, that is when I felt like going there was a burden and sought new employment.less
Working at JFK was fulfilling and rewarding when you are able to make positive changes. The diversity was good and working as a team even made it better. The atmosphere was friendly yet businesslike. We would always greet each other including customers with a smile or a nod of the head. At times work would get challenging but at the end of the day when all are accomplished it made a big difference.
Had the management ever communicated with each other this job would have been much better. Every manager had a different way of doing things and there were 5 managers. Schedules always differed so good luck making plans. This company had recently taken over after being run by Sodexo, so I will give them that they were definitely trying their best. Terrible time to be there though. As a dietician I couldn't believe what they were letting patients eat and the lack of control and supervision over trays being sent to patients.
Transporter (Former Employee) – Atlantis, FL – November 4, 2013
A great learning school. The only hospital that lets students have a direct access and experience like the employee. As a student, had a great experience. As a transporter did not have a great experience as lot of employees seem under staffed and frustrated. About 50 % of the employees seem very genuine with patient care as the rest seem like they are there to just collect a paycheck. Felt like the lower pay-grade job you have the more you were discriminated.
Different culture, Fast-Paced, Great Instructor, Great equipment
