Friendly but unorganized with no communication. Constant understaffing due to HR incompetence and hiring freezes. It takes months to even years to fill positions.
Also Macneal does not value growth so unless you are a RN you can't move around within the hospital. If you advance your degree you will not be promoted as a non nurse. Registry people can only work in the same position forever with no chance to ever be full time or grow. You will get experience but will have to take it elsewhere for growth because Macneal only wants to support and develop nurses.

Under Tenet registry staff did not get raises. Now that Loyola took over that may change. But that change will come slowly.

They move very slow. I applied about 4 years ago for registry to get in the door of a large hospital. Back then a recruiter called me after some months later then a manager two weeks after that. I got the offer at the end of the interview but was told it would be a while to start. HR moves very slow despite the need to fill critical positions and with the background check and physical it takes time before you start.

I applied internally for full time and the process was quicker for the interview but I am waiting longer than I was told for a decision.

Macneal's onboarding process is slow. Positions are often open for several months which places stress on staff.

Depends on the position. Pay for registry staff is higher. For my field the pay is above average hourly.
