Greeted with a Hello with everyone you meet, I learned that being at a hospital that not everyone may not be feeling like so much conversation, just maybe a ear to listen, The most enjoyable part of the job is the difference of the people you meet on a day to day basic
Associate Chaplain (PRN) (Former Employee) – West Columbia, SC – October 31, 2018
A typical work day consisted of visiting with patient as requested. reporting to emergency situation to assist families while under stressful events . During this time with this company I learned a great deal concerning people in stressful situations. I also learned how to manage my time at work and time to provided time for myself. The work place culture was very supportive. The hardest part of this job was not getting to evolved with the patient and their families during the time of providing support.
Administrative Assistant II (Current Employee) – Columbia, SC – October 22, 2018
I started PRN in the resource pool (which wasnt so great of an experience at first) then became full time shortly after that in another Dept. I was later promoted to Admin Assistant II after staying Full time for almost 2 years. I love working for Lexington Medical Center. They have given me endless opportunities in a very short amount of time. If you stay persistent, you can move up quickly. Most Co workers are pleasant; while you will still have some that are not.
Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) – West Columbia, SC – October 12, 2018
I enjoyed my job at Lexington, it was just a long drive from my home so I needed something closer. My one complaint is that there wasn't really enough work to keep me busy most of the time and the job I had tied me to my desk to take incoming calls so it was tiring to sit there all day.
The company hired a lot of their relatives from the office job area's and it didn't matter that they could not do the job as long as they provided a position for them. The manager wanted to micro manage everyone as if the job position was not filled with qualified employees doing the job
benefits, great work relationship between the employees and supevisors
paying men more than women with same job experience, schooling and years on the job
I received excellent training, made wonderful and supportive friends. Never worried about handling situations by myself, always had a point person to go to. Small hospital with a large amount of friendly employees and support resources throughout.
Supportive co-workers, excellent training, excellent working environment.
Nurse Technician II, Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) – West Columbia, SC – September 24, 2018
Lexington Medical Center is a good place to work. Coworkers are great. Most of the physicians are personable. As in most places of work, there is favoritism and cliques, which I do not care for. Other than that, it’s a good place to work.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC – September 14, 2018
The atmosphere in working there is one of family. No one seems more important then the other. You can be housekeeping sitting at lunch with a Provider. Everyone is there to help everyone else. The opportunities are endless.
Radiology Clerk (Former Employee) – West Columbia, SC – September 10, 2018
This was a temporary job that I took to make extra money. I was trained with on-the-job training and learned Lots during my tenure there. It was a very fast-paced and sometimes stressful job, oftentimes there was lots and lots of stress and tension between employees due to the nature of the job.
Doula, CD(DONA) (Former Employee) – West Columbia, SC – August 17, 2018
This was an on-call position. If you are called in for a mother in labor, you would be with the laboring mother as her coach until after the birth of the baby. It could be a short or long labor. It is a wonderfully rewarding position to have. I loved working with the Doctors and nurses and other Doulas. Hardest part was leaving. Best part is seeing a new family come together in such an incredible miracle.
Meeting new families and working with a wonderful staff.
Long, exhausting hours and muscle aches from coaching/assiting in labor.
A typical work day at Lexington Medical Center would be easy going. I worked 2nd shift so we would have one lunch rush at around 12-1:30. My job at Lexington Medical was never really stressful. I built a lot of great relationships with my co-workers and other staff throughout the hospital. My manager was helpful, always nice, and very caring. I would say the hardest part of the job would be havimg an unsatisfied customer and not being able to make things right with them. The most enjoyable part of the job was being around so many loving and cheerful people each and every day.
In the emergency room checking patients in so they can get seen by a doctor and also make sure that patients get back to their room to be seen. Greeting patients and making sure they get what they need.
