Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Hershey, PA – July 9, 2018
Hershey is a great place to work and learn. They encourage you to maintain your skills, expand them, and continue to crave knowledge. Managers of the department are very supportive and will always have your back. The coworkers are splendid and supportive. All are team players.
Scheduler (Former Employee) – Hershey, PA – June 14, 2018
Please don't take a position in this department!!! The time called management are a bunch of air heads. They treat you like a prisoner and very heartless. They had a bunch of work and refuse to pay more. This job is not worth the hassles and that's why they can't keep people to stay.
Environmental Health Worker (Current Employee) – Hershey, PA – May 30, 2018
Been working here for 7 months for 3rd shift housekeeping and have seen 7 people leave (averaging 1 per month.) We have been literally half staffed since I first arrived and management won't replace (or they take really long to replace) anyone that leaves. You are seen as just another body and not as an actual person. The pay and work itself is fine and the benefits start day one which is a definite plus. The work load however is unacceptable as we are expected to clean an area/section which takes all 8 hours plus clean patient checkouts/discharges. This can use up all your work time which leaves you with almost no time to clean your area. All of this management knows and they still ask why we didn't get our area done even though it's for the same reason every single day. This would not be a problem if we were probably staffed with a team to handle all the checkouts/discharges like 1st and 2nd shift has. But sadly this will never be the case.
Benefits start day one
Short staffed, heavy workload, management doesn't care

Paramedic (Former Employee) – Hershey, PA – May 16, 2018
I worked as a Paramedic in the ground 911 "Life Lion EMS" unit (they also have a well known helicopter program). I enjoyed my job and co workers for 4 years. Leadership cared about you, but sometimes slow to get back to you due to workload and rapid growth of the program. None the less the department manager always took time to stop and talk with you. Also has smart and forward thinking physician leadership. Only reason I left was due to a fire rescue job with a pension. Really hated to leave. This program is going places! Busy, 20,000+ calls a year and growing!!!
Wages and benefits, felt appreciated, good leadership, education benefits
Growing rapidly, some growing pains, but handling it well
Environmental Health Worker (Current Employee) – Hershey, PA – May 9, 2018
Job security is great the union is awesome, however if you're a service worker you may be looked down upon there's definitely a superiority complex from doctors down. There are some chill people especially in the ER. It's tricky climbing up the ladder because everything is seniority based and there's people that have been there for decades. Free CPR and BLS training for all employees is a plus. Supervisors there are trash, if they would just let you do your job it'd be a much better work environment, they basically near babysit you. overt racism, keep in mind Hershey is in the country you'll notice by the farm out front of the hospital and the tractors on the roads. service workers, and techs work the hardest hands down and are the least appreciated
Scheduler -Access Call Center (Current Employee) – Camp Hill, PA – May 7, 2018
The manager (for a cell center mind you) was brought from financial services (nothing to do with scheduling), has no college degree and has never even worked in a call center environment before. She makes up the rules as she goes along, makes promises that are not kept, and does not listen to staff who actually worked at call centers for ideas. The "leads" under her do anything but lead. Too concerned with gossiping about the staff like its high school, and avoiding doing any actual work other than sending passive aggressive emails about frivolous things. New hires frequently don't know how anything works because other employees have to teach them (not their job, thats what management is supposed to do). Avoid this job.
It's a job
Working for manager who have no leadership skills.
Advanced Practice Nurse (Former Employee) – Hershey, PA – May 6, 2018
Excellent Level I Trauma Center emergency department with excellent staff and supporting physicians and residents caring for acutely ill patients. Great opportunity to train in the field of Emergency Medicine.
Until recent management changes this was an excellent place to work.
Cash Posting Representative (Current Employee) – Hershey, PA – May 2, 2018
New management has no respect for their employees. New management could care less if a person is working in uncomfortable surroundings. The team I worked with was the truest definition of a team we worked hard to reach our goals and even harder to achieve our quality standards. Which the new management determined was insufficient and started adding follow up teams work to our agenda. And then question why the work is not getting done. They set us up for failure, and I feel it is so they would not have to pay the monthly bonuses.
MEDICAL OFFICE ASSISTANT I (Former Employee) – Park Avenue – April 16, 2018
Loved my job always something different. patients were great. new management not so much . They do not care about employees at all. its all about numbers and their friends. So sad to see where this company is going. Patient care is gone. its all about the money now.
