Unprofressional work ethics, environment and management Good to get hired and post on resume but not for patient care or experienced or loyal or ethical employees. Management doesn't care about employees and forces financial situation on you versus patient care and education
Immensely challenging and yet deeply rewarding behavioral health experience
Staff Nurse - Behavioral Health (Current Employee) – Long Branch JJ – December 11, 2018
Working in the behavioral health unit is immensely challenging and yet deeply rewarding. That area is not for everyone. Some nurses think that psyche nursing is easy. That's often because they either do not or really care or do not understand the level of compassion that such patients need.
Surgical Technologist (Former Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – December 7, 2018
It was the best place to work for when I first started there. Just before it merged with Saint Barnabas they started to treat employees like robots not like family, which is how it was before. Now that they merged they got rid of everyone, so they could hire inexperienced people for less money. It’s horrible,
It was fast paced,unfriendly crowd, Bosses were rude and discriminating ,less pay, could take less breaks. I would come home very tired and unhappy. I wolu not recommend anyone to work in this Hospital or health care System.
Patient Access Specialist (Former Employee) – Toms River, NJ – November 26, 2018
If you are willing to learn quickly and work hard this position is will be rewarding. the Access center is open 24/7 and there is staff on every shift. At the time when I left a lot of changes were being implemented. There were also a lot o kinks being worked out with the different changes. the overnight shift has little to no access to a supervisor when something goes wrong or a decision requires supervisory review/ approval.
extensive training period with a dedicated trainer
little to no access to supervisor on overnight shift
Unorganized, stressful. Empolyees in supply chain are unhappy
Buyer (Current Employee) – Oceanport, NJ – November 25, 2018
Leadership is micromanaging. Buyers, Speciality Buyers and Customer service work non-stop for little pay. The environment is very stressful and KPI standards are difficult. Department looks for people with high credentials and wants excellence on work but does not pay remotely close to what these 3 teams deserve. The work load is very heavy, most positions here always start cleaning up someone else's work mess.
Leadership takes away breaks on occasions when we are low on staff or they believe we will be busier. This makes empolyees very unhappy.
The system bullies you into using vacation time rather than sick time because you can't have more than 3 sick days in 6 months.
Buyer (Former Employee) – Oceanport, NJ – November 17, 2018
Company always wants to hear your opinions but implements no change. Non clinical employees are pushed to the side, the company directs all their attention to clinical empolyees and making their work environment better. Poor pay, lack of leadership, stressful environment. Managers are understanding for the most part but Leadership teams expect you to perform like your working an executive position for an under average salary a year 35,000 to 50,000. When work increases/empolyees go on leave instead of finding alternatives on how to distrubute the workload... the workload doubles for certian empolyees the leadership team decides to choose and no incentives are offered.
Company offers Behealthy programs which no one has time to do during the day because of the workload. System is unorganized and stressful.
Material Handler (Current Employee) – New Brunswick, NJ – November 15, 2018
Very mean management ! Poor training they just throw you in and than blame you for things you didn’t even do. Awful management that would sell you down the river and throw you under a bus without a second thought. I do not recommend high turn over they suck you in and spit you out and get the next batch in. Lots of nepotism in this industry you only get in if you know someone and even when that happens it doesn’t get you very far once you have the job here.
Not recommend unless you like stress and a hostile management.
Long breaks, day shift leaves earlier
Bad management, no benefits, no paid time off, working holidays
Development Department Intern (Former Employee) – West Orange, NJ – November 13, 2018
I can't give much of a review since this was just a semester internship. The office was quiet. It's a basically just busy work that they don't feel like doing themselves so you don't get much out of it.
amazing job, wonderful co-workers--hated to leave but got married and moved to Southport, North Carolina. Worked part-time but was looking for full time--when special projects were available at corporate, I worked full time hours.
