Don’t make the same mistake I did
The manager is not honest or up front about the expectations of his department when you accept a position or in the interview. He will never help his staff when they are drowning in work and uses the schedule as a form of punishment to show his authority. He talks to his staff in a unprofessional manner and does not care how they feel about issues. It’s his way or NO way. if you try to address concerns you get a target on your back. He mandates extra weekends, on call weekday shifts and on call weekend shifts if you ask for a day off he deliberately schedules that day or weekend and tells you “ o well, find coverage or trade the day”. Don’t make the same mistake as I did. This was one of the worst respiratory jobs I have ever had. Love being a respiratory therapist again now that I am at a place with a manager who listen, respects, and cares about her staff and does not try to intentionally treat their staff in a derogatory way!
