I was contacted within two days to record a video interview. I passed and was then interviewed by HR via telephone - it was very informal. Then, I was brought in for an interview with the exec and exec asst. I thought it went well, but there were more than 13 questions! All situational and some I was not prepared for. In retrospect, many of the comments made by the exec signaled to me that I would not move forward. I was then emailed on Halloween (bad timing) that I did not get the job. The email was not very kind either. I was disappointed with the treatment made by Scripps and am now glad that I did not get the job.
Add paid holidays, add sick time, union, and fix the problem with the employees as a lot of them are disrespectful to each other which creates a hostile work environment. La Jolla is the worse.
Asked to get botox as teaching tool in annual review and CEO ok with it. They push you out. The more years you have in the company is more of a reason to let you go for cheaper work force. Management will make up lies not to give you raise. Lot of pot licking It incourage hostile clicks between staff.
A lot of employees are rude and fight during work hours, it can make a work environment hostile as management will not do anything about it. I had some good coworkers but I had a higher percentage of really bad coworkers. When you have weak Leadership that allows this behavior, it really makes working at Scripps unpleasant.
It was okay in the beginning, but after awhile I felt unhappy and dragging myself to go to work.
Apply elsewhere, this company is not worth it in so many ways. You quickly become disillusioned, most nurses stay because of their drive to keep things "afloat", which isn't a healthy thing for employees.
Yes, Scripps hires the best and it is important that as an employee you have the knowledge and skills to fit into the company
What would you suggest Scripps Health management do to prevent others from leaving?
Treat staff better. Especially seniors. They have a bogus award from AARP. They should take a lesson from MacDonalds and other 24/7/365 operations. Hire staff for all shifts and days of the week. Adhere to 8,10 or 12 hr shifts. NO Overtime except in a dire emergency. Healthcare workers need to have a life outside of the hospital to recharge and refresh and recreate.
