Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – RBHC – December 5, 2018
I enjoyed most of my co-workers. It was like a big family. Even the Doctors are amazing. If you can fly under the radar, don't mind being talked down to, or like your opinions or concerns are valued this is a the right place for you. If you want to work someplace you are respected no matter your educational background or position by your Nursing administrator look elsewhere.
There seems to be no job security, Even for administrators.
There is absolutely no communication from Administrators. Policies are always changing verbally and not passed down to the people who need to know.
Senior Food Service Worker (Current Employee) – Moreno Valley, CA – October 13, 2018

Volunteer Work, Physical Therapy Assistant (Former Employee) – Moreno Valley, CA – September 19, 2018

Lab Technician (Current Employee) – Newport News, VA – September 7, 2018
There are a few people on second shift in the laboratory who intentionally seek out their coworkers religious and political views and if they are different than their own they harass you about it. Its so bad that i feel unsafe around these people. There is no point in reporting these activities because the 2nd shift supervisor backs up the man who is doing this and often joins in on the bullying. Ive only been here for a short amount of time, and i plan on leaving because of this. The manager is wonderful.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – West Point, VA – August 9, 2018
I was employed for almost 15 years and was terminated for something I didn't do. Two weeks prior I received an almost perfect review. I think management had someone in mind for my position and found a way to get rid of me. Plus my pay only increased by $5 in all that time but I was doing the duties of 3 people. They use employees until they no longer need them.
Awards jobs to those who didn't earn it... Hiring of family and friends has hardships
Certified Nurse Aide (Current Employee) – Newport News VA – August 7, 2018
8 year employee. I used to love working for Riverside Health System... until recently when they requested I take a PAY CUT ...Twice...for another similar position I wanted to apply and transfer to. I couldn't figure out why they were telling me I would have to take a paycut for another CNA position when I clearly earned my pay for performance raises each year. I started off with a really low wage and new CNAs are starting with what took me 4 years to make. I finally had enough when I was told that 2 new out of school CNAs (that I trained) were offered 2 brand new positions that assist patients and customers that lack health insurance find the connections they need at local health clinics, labs. Etc. I had never been so insulted in my life after I found out I, an 8 year employee, was overlooked yet I already had some training and other knowledge regarding such. Not only would I have been a great fit for that job, my personal hearing loss would be better accommodated by Riverside with a more one on one customer service experience position. I already work 3 times harder because of hearing loss and it's tough. Once I actually voiced to someone why I was upset about not being offered or even told the New position was open, their response was "You might as well consider yourself as a disabled black women, because those pretty little girls are going to be awarded everything with ease and advance, and everything you do will most likely always go unnoticed."
No health benefits if you work less than an average of 30 hours a week. To lessen the cost of health insurance premiumsmore... they stopped providing insurance for part time staff and weeded out half that do not have the option or cannot pick up an extra 6 /8 hours to make that 30 hour average.
Other than that, you will have a chance to meet some amazing doctors, and nurses that will leave an imprint for life.less
People aren't held accountable. Positions given to those who didn't earn it. Not long enough lunch
Customer Service Representative II (Former Employee) – Newport News, VA – August 5, 2018
I loved my job. I was at the call center in the Patient Accounting department. It was fast paced and stressful but I had to remember that our patients were calling because something was not right with their bill or they needed financial help. If a good, attentive attitude was given, most were most grateful for the help administered. For the most part, everyone in our department got along like a family. The hardest part of the job was the strict attendance policy, and company politics.
