Food and Nutrition Worker (Former Employee) – Massachusetts – July 20, 2018
I loved the people I worked with but the company has frequent raise freezes, few benefits and borderline illegal overtime policies (One girl was told that if she missed work to be with her dangerously sick family member that she would have to make up her used sick time by doing a double shift.) Employees of all departments are frequently denied vacation time due to constant under staffing. One of the three bosses is very helpful and caring but the other two only care about having a body there to cover a shift even if the person is not trained. Southcoast claims it needs more budget cuts when in reality the budget report has a surplus. It is a great quick job to make a lot of money fast but I would not recommend it long term for mental health.
almost guaranteed hours, good pay
little to no benefits, management is manipulative, little home/family time
Diet Office Specialist (Current Employee) – New Bedford, MA – July 6, 2018
You work with a partner, most of your coworkers are willing to help you, and the hours are flexible around your school schedule. As a diet office specialist, you have seven dollars a day of paid for food.

Emergency Room Technician (Former Employee) – Fall River, MA – June 5, 2018
I worked the night shift in the ED, and I was able to work with a great group of Doctor's, Nurse's, other night employees who made going to work a wonderful thing. Nights and an Emergency Room are hard to work, but when you have a great team of people who help each other, it makes a big difference.
Lab Assistant (Former Employee) – Hinesville, GA – May 9, 2018
I really enjoyed the Dr I worked for. He made the experience worth working. I saw about 25-30 patients a day. I was the only lab tech and it was a very nice environment , fast paced which I enjoyed. The hardest part was leaving
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – April 25, 2018
Great place to work! LIke a little family. There was always plenty of help when you needed it and every one pulled together to meet the requirements of the day. There was also plenty of food because the representatives from other companyw came to provide educations and drugs and they always brought lunch.
