Excellent pay, terrible training.
CLS (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – May 24, 2017
The hospital pay is excellent ($65+/hr Laboratory). Average benefit package. No discount to employees for hospital services. Schedule is posted 3-4 weeks in advance. Training in the laboratory is non existent (1 day in Chem, and Coag. 2 days in Hematology). It's a busy trauma center, so workload is high volume. Unfortunately, the management's focus is on work fast, rather than quality work.
Coworkers are supportive, and RN staff is friendly. I would send my family to this hospital for adequate healthcare:patients have good outcomes. However, I would not recommend working there.
Overall, Regional provides a good paycheck, but with 20+ years of working various hospitals. This is by far the worst job I've ever had.
Lack of training. Excessively high workload. Unsupportive lab management
