Volunteer (Former Employee) – Marietta, GA – February 25, 2018
I was a Hospital Volunteer for a brief time and hoping to eventually get my foot in the door at Kennestone as a Medical Assistant working Front Office or back office but I think their requirements are too strict . Because I was a volunteer, I wasn't eligible for benefits, but the work environment was excellent and very friendly . The Management was outstanding . Job security was top notch and I felt very safe while I was there , sometimes when I got a job to transport or transfer a patient it was confusing because of the hospital being so big , I think a General Map will help, but other than that.
Assistant Nurse Manager (Former Employee) – Marietta, GA – February 18, 2018
The units are very understaffed. The nurses are severely overworked many medications occur enough to send patients to ICU. Many regulation violation and regulation violations here. I was in fear of loosing my license. The Heart Center and OB units were the only safe units at Kennestone.
Good working environment, with a lot of room for employees to grow professionally
Registered Nurse (RN) Clinical Refresher (Former Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – November 16, 2017
For the short period I was at Kennestone Hospital, the day was fast paced, very supportive staff, willing to lend a hand and making sure I understood everything I was doing and felt comfortable in performing the procedures. Patients needs came first, and family members were also taken care of and included in what was going on. I was made to feel welcomed and comfortable in doing my job.

My typical day begin with morning report, medication administration, participating in doctors round. If any of my patient is due for sugery I will get him or her ready for the procedure. I continue to monitor and manage the patient for the whole shift. If there is any in service for the day I will participate in it.. I enjoy working in Kennestone hospital because series of in service that they conduct periodically which help a lot to enhance my knowledge in some new nursing innovations.

REHABILITATION AIDE (FLOAT) (Current Employee) – Marietta, GA – August 24, 2017
A typical day is hard to describe. Every day is something different and I never know what to expect. Which is why I enjoy working here. On the other hand, what is expected of you is to always have a good attitude and be ready to lend a helping hand.
Cardiac Center and IMCU Volunteer (Current Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – December 14, 2016
I go into the hospital to check-in, then make my way to the IMCU. I begin stocking the main medical cart, and then go from room to room restocking patient medical carts. For the rooms that are vacant, I will make sure they are prepped for new, incoming patients. If they are not, I will prepare the room. The management and other associates are all very nice, and enjoyable to work with. The hardest part of the job is see the misfortune in some of the terminally ill patients. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that I made a difference in some of the patients' lives that I interact with, no matter how small the difference may be.
Free Lunches, friendly work environment, great medical field exposure
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Marietta, GA – December 5, 2016
Not enough diversity in the lab. Phlebotomists had pink hair, long nails, complain and gossip all the time. No team work. Unorganized an when being trained, everyone wants to be the boss. Not enough Indians. 14.48
