Anesthesia Tech (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 19, 2018
Rush was a rush. Very fast paced. Very solid company externally looking in. Workers will be over worked and stressed many times with little to no recognition. Modern technology and very up to date software. Very good reputation for hospital. Great Discounts for working there. Good benefits and Insurance

Overnight helpdesk, Help customer with IT issues. Unlock password accounts. Learned to multitask . Management is very helpful in gives workers tools to success. Fun and family like culture. The hardest part of my job is staying awake. The most enjoyable part of my job is resolving a customer issue.
Rush University Medical Center was an awesome place to work.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 6, 2018
I no longer work at Rush University Medical Center. My work at Rush University Medical Center was very enjoyable and rewarding. I worked for the Chairman of Ob/Gyn and the Director of Women's Healthcare at Rush. The position was fast-paced, challenging and enabled me to utilize my organizational and prioritization skills. This position required me to multitask in order to meet deadlines and complete various work assignments.
Unit Clerk (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 28, 2018
I enjoy working for Rush. Amazing job for anyone. Very hard to get into when applying but when you get in you don't want to get fired. They are one of the highest paid hospitals in Chicago. The only thing I don't like is the Clerks don't have management so its left up to incompetent people to do scheduling and work the call-ins/ off... its unorganized in that sense because the clerks are being overworked from being Mandated almost twice in a week or more in a month . They need to find a better system because they are over working the ones they do have. Other than that it's really not a bad place to be.
"Puppy day", massages, and a pianist once a month at the hospital
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 28, 2018
I worked on a fast paced unit, focused on "time stamps", ( getting the patient in and out as quickly as possible). Management can sometimes be more focused on acuity numbers, as opposed to actual patient care (MY opinion). It was most difficult to be on call( Monday-Monday), coming in at 3:00am for non-emergent procedures.I did, however, enjoy connecting, and caring for the wonderful patients that i've met, and developed relationships with.
Clinic Coordinator (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 27, 2018
My last Dept was the best...I typically arrived at work & started calling pts.to confirm appts...I checked them in & out all while managing phones o& placing physician orders..Mgmt was great..Overal I believe that Rush lacks in culture diversification despite attempts...but out all of my years there I've loved each dept.
Cost of food is expensive...lack of diversification...wages
Guest Relations Associate (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 18, 2018
This by far has been the best job I have ever had. My manager is awesome my schedule works easily around my life and I enjoy working with patients and visitors. I would get all of my friends and former co workers a job here if I could.
Great with employee issues
Temporarily understaffed due to unforeseen let go and losses.
Rush IT Help Desk team member (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 9, 2018
The whole team was energetic and positive and was open to help and train. A typical day at my position as an IT help desk member began early in the morning as early as 5am. I learned that as being a part of the Help Desk we are the employees first line of help. The management in the office and area I was in was great they had a positive energy and always available to answer questions. Hardest part of the position was not having all the information on all the software the hospital used therefore I was not able to assist with all the issues. The enjoyable part was the people and the gratitude you heard in employees' voices when you were able to solve the issues they were having.
Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 1, 2018
Due to implementation of therapist driven protocols and the amount of research done at the university, Rush employees have more freedom to make healthcare related decisions for their patients then at other hospitals that I have worked at.
Enjoyed working at Rush. Rush gave me the opportunity to develop a multitude of skills. Everything from personal to technical.
Histology Supervisor (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 26, 2018
My job was integrated with another department. If my job hadn’t been integrated with another department, I would have continued working at Rush. I was dedicated and proud to putting patient care before anything else.
Interventional Tech Advance (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 25, 2018
A typical day for me starts at 4:30, I actually don't start until 5 am but I like to start early get things ready so when the prep nurses come in all rooms are set up. I clock in at 5 am by that time 1st case patients are arriving. I help bring patients to room give patients instructions and if any poc test is needed I give patient urine cup direct them to washroom explain to patient why urine is needed. Once we obtain urine I walk with patient back to room give them gown and instructions. If blood work is needed I let patient get undressed first then return and draw blood. I'm also a QBS (qualified bilingual services) at Rush University Medical Center. My days are fun always learning something everyday. The only reason that I would consider leaving my current job for a job similar to my current job and the reason I would leave is that I'm also currently in school for my BSN I will have all my prerequisites done by the end of fall semester 2018 and will be in the BSN program by January 2019. So I would like to work part-time weekends night shift like Friday, Saturday and Sunday night work 10/12 hrs a night.
I learn something different everyday, helps me grow as a person and as a health care professional.
