Pleasant Work Environment
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 3, 2017
If a pleasant work environment is most important, then this is the job for you. I enjoy every minute at work. The people are great and management is pleasant. The hospital is new and clean. The biggest down side is that I get cancelled, A LOT! This is coming from someone who has loved getting cancelled in other jobs in the past. I don't take a lot of vacations and I save my PTO for this kind of thing , I am unable to save any of it here. My paid time off (PTO) is not enough to cover all the days I get cancelled, so that means short paychecks and absolutely NO planned vacation time. All the PTO is for cancellations. The reason for this is the census in the hospital depends on the number of surgeries being done and those surgeries are done more frequently on certain days of the week. There is also a minimum requirement of weekend shifts required to sign up for, as there is in any facility. Therefore, it's guaranteed that you will get cancelled frequently if you sign up for the weekend days that you are required to sign up for. This is an excellent second job, but may not be for everyone if they rely solely on this job for their income. If you do come work with us full time, plan on having a second job or some agency work and plan on saving all your PTO for cancellations. It's still worth it though. It might also not be the best fit for a new grad, since the experience is very pidgeon-holed into only 4 or 5 diagnoses.
Pleasant work environment, Clean new hospital, great staff
lots of cancellations!
