I enjoyed working for PCH until I passed the NCLEX and couldn't get a job
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Palos Heights, IL – July 23, 2018
I thoroughly enjoyed working at PCH until they became Palos Health. Management became separate from the bedside nurses and CNA's. After working as a CNA for almost 2 years, I passed my nursing boards, but couldn't get a job within the facility as an RN. Positions were being filled by outside applicants.
Poor Management - Don't care about Employees at all
Behavioral Health Secretary (Former Employee) – Palos Heights, IL – September 19, 2018
Leadership at Palos is awful. They do not care about the employees-haven't had a salary increase in years! Only the CEO & higher ups get increases!! The communication is horrible--everything is a big secret. Patients tell employees what they hear "on the street". There are way too many chiefs and not enough worker bees!!!
Close to home
No communication, no pay increases, no free coffee

This is a fast paced environment. Great people to work with. I've learned great deal from my coworkers and just being in this environment. Best of all is being able to help patients and advocate for them.

Management is a huge CLICK. Assignment on daily duties are UNFAIR. Once you get the job the whole job description changes. You will apply for one department, but management will put you where they think you should go, so applying for the posted job does not mean that's where you will be. If you want to change position you must be part of the management CLICK! Co workers are great, but will also turn on you if they don't like you. I am very disappointed in Palos Health and honestly can not recommend it as a good place to work.
PCT/CNA (Former Employee) – Palos Hills, IL – January 6, 2018
Understaffed heavy workload for cna Poorly managed...inconsistent managment between floors. Don't come in to work sick but don't call in sick either. ? They don't have a great policy on attendance. Don't call in sick because you will get written up, but you also don't want to expose patients. Bottom line...you need a better policy.
Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Palos Park, IL – December 24, 2017
I worked at Palos Community Hospital on two different shifts (1pm start time and 3pm start time. I had hoped that a full time slot would come up but this did not happen and when a full time position opened up at another institution, I left Palos. Their compensation and benefits were quite good.
Nurse (Current Employee) – Floor – December 18, 2017
Nice place to work.staff is great. It has changed a lot over the years and is a beautiful hospital with great employees. I do wish that there were more options for schedules though. It be nice to have more PRN nursing positions and other sorts of part time jobs.
PCT/CNA (Current Employee) – Palos Heights, IL – November 27, 2017
Management is horrible here. Pay is decent, however, if you don't act like their little pet, you get missed treated. Look else where to work. Worked here for 4 years, and I am in the process of trying to leave. If you have a family emergency and have to leave work. They will hold it against you and write you up.
Respiratory (Former Employee) – Palos Heights, IL – October 17, 2017
You work every other weekend but if u work pm's or nights, u work basically every weekend. You cannot request off on ur weekend. Management is the worst I've ever seen. The money is bad, the hospital itself is nice and the equipment is good but the working conditions are not suited for someone who enjoys their life and free time.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Palos Park, IL – October 13, 2017
I only volunteered there for a short time. I worked in the physical therapy department and loved it. Everyone was really friendly and showed me the ropes. With my regular full time job it was hard to stay on schedule with volunteer work.
