Social Worker (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – July 19, 2018
I worked at this placement after graduate school. It was a great place to learn and do professional development. People were very helpful to young staff. Older staff was expected to come into the hospital seasoned and ready to work. They were not patient with older workers like they were to younger workers.
Parkland is not for everyone. I can tell you Parkland has some of the best burn physicians in Texas. Along with one of the best Ortho team as well. With the facility being a teaching hospital, they grow more physicians than most other teaching facilities in the country.
The people I work with have been a great joy, some I will remain connected to.
Unit Technician (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 27, 2018
I have been working for Parkland for 10 years and I like it a lot. All cultures are accepted at Parkland, they don't discriminate against anyone. The hardest part of the job is just simply when you're really busy, but overall Parkland is a wonderful place to work.
RN Poison control specialist I (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 15, 2018
I currently work for the poison control center as an RN. Mind you that you are paid only $30 per hour and do what doctors/pharmacists do, but are paid way less. The doctors aren't real though-they went to foreign medical schools and this is the only place they can obtain a job as I am sure they passed their MD boards, but weren't able to secure a residency. After you pass the 'specialist test' you make $2 and hour more. Mind you, this is a very stressful job and the RNs working there should've went on to do NP or physician themselves-not this job. They are getting paid peanuts for a very stressful job where you are under the microscope constantly. Oh, and the 'clinical educator' went to a non-USA medical school and is a poor educator-insisting there is an elaborate training program, but it is really 'sink or swim' with her and she favors people who just get it-that means less work for her. The manager is new and the 'educator' incompetent. I will be leaving as soon as I can secure another position.
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – June 12, 2018
I learned an extreme amount of knowledge, while working at Parkland. It was a bit of a challenge attempting to get all of the staff on the same page. However, Parkland has one of the best Trauma units.
