A great learning environment with good compensation/benefits
Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Portland, ME – July 12, 2018
I did enjoy my time at this job, I was able to learn a lot, had great mentors as well. I would say the most difficult part was working 12 hr shifts overnight. The rotating schedule is difficult to come on/off if you are a candidate, requires being put on a wait list and offered only when a slot is available. Parking is paid for by the employee, taken out of your paycheck. Always rewarding caring for Respiratory patients.

Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Maine – July 1, 2018
Management will take new employees with no experience and push them through training to be out on their own, even when informed they aren't ready. The management team for outreach is very disrespectful towards staff. You have to beg for your unpaid lunch at times. The management will overwork you as they sit in they office together, laughing and eating. The Group Lead is not informed and does not help out in the feild. I go into work wondering if my boss is going to be rude, angry, or the very rare, happy. The management team often speaks rudely of the employees in front of to the other employees. They will run you ragged and instead of giving you a "thank you", they will be angry if you turn them down.
Great millage reimbursement
I've heard "not my problem" more than I can count, from my manager. They are only in business for themselves, not employees or clients.
Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) – Portland, ME – June 27, 2018
This was by far the worse job experience I ever dealt with. There was no training program in place for the new employees. They made you train with different people everyday and in most cases it contradicted in what they expected out of you. It was poorly managed and the employees are a tight knit group that didn't accept new comers very well because they wanted their job easy by making the new guys do it. When it rained or snowed it'd come into the building because of how poor the infrastructure was built. We were trained to tell nurses and patients that things were going to get fixed. Sometimes it would and sometimes it'd just get swept under the rug. I worked here for two years and got to see how this place really runs. Seems like they just pay agencies to keep their mouth shut on certain things. High stress and low pay.
co workers worked with each other for years. Will throw in under the bus so quick
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ME – June 27, 2018
coming into work early morning, the Medical Assistants, Doctors and Management make the work day fly by! everyone is always so happy, and family oriented. If ever I end up back in Maine, Maine health cardiology is where I will be applying!
Medical Records Clerk (Former Employee) – Portland, ME – June 24, 2018
numerous tasks daily, filed, faxed, copied, answered phone calls travel to another branch office. People were nice, mental health patients were difficult and sometimes scary. Had damage done to co-worker's car, nervous about leaving office at night.
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Biddeford, ME – June 17, 2018
You don’t get paid for all the work you have to do and many times you are missing stuff needed to do your job Management seems to be the same in the 3 department I have worked lack of respect towards employees they just want you to do your work and more but don’t expect to get noticed for doing more even at review time
FOOD SERVICES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Portland, ME – June 16, 2018
I loved working at Maine Medical Center, the environment was fun and friendly and it was only 10 minutes away from where I live. It was great to learn how a kitchen works and the ins and outs of the hospital. It was rewarding to make a patients day by bringing them, typically, the one thing they had control over (excluding those who had diet restrictions). Management did their best, but it seemed hard for them to keep up with the vast array of problems and employees that they had.
Patient Financial Services Associate III (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ME – June 11, 2018
Little room for advancement and underpaid. During the interview process the Director promises there is ample opportunity to advance one's career but these opportunities are few and far between.
The CBO specifically, follows the lean process/six sigma. One of the philosophies of the lean process is to promote from within. No current managers were hired from within the organization. All of them came from the outside. No in-house candidates were given serious consideration.
The job itself is challenging and very rewarding however, significantly underpaid for what the job entails.
Food Service Associate (Current Employee) – Portland, ME – June 4, 2018
Various easy tasks but must be able to walk continuously for shifts (4 hour increments, up to 12 hours), easy enough work for the pay. Call-center is only room for advancement and its really just a reward because you get to sit down rather than walking for hours
Decent pay, flexible hours, easy work
Supervisors are reasonable, however boss above them is quite rude and not friendly, not matter who you are
Supportive environment, co-workers are fun to work with.
Part Time Receptionist and Switchboard Operator (Current Employee) – Portland, ME – June 4, 2018
Productive and supportive environment. I usually work Sundays 3-8, and sometime will fill in when needed. A typical Sunday shift is pretty slow. The most enjoyable part of the day is answering questions from people who call and those who come to visit patients.I receive support from other switchboard operators from fellow co-workers.
Director of Perioperative Services (Former Employee) – Rockport, ME – May 20, 2018
The culture is entirely focased on the patient experience. From top leadership down to support staff, there is a conscious undersatnding of the mission of this organization. With the patient as the priotiy the work satisfaction and experience naturally follows.
PATIENT FIN SRV ASSOC (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ME – May 13, 2018
Mainehealth is a very fast paced and interesting place to work. They interface with many companies and many different software packages. I learned tremendous knowledge and practices while working there.
I interfaced with many companies and learned how their insurance operates. I really enjoyed all of the people I met while working there.
