TRANSCRIPTIONIST (Former Employee) – Bismarck, ND – February 26, 2018
I enjoyed working for St. Alexius until they started not telling us the truth about what was happening with the merger with CHI. A lot of us in the department left before our department was done away with.
Retail Supervisor/Starbucks Supervisor (Former Employee) – Hoffman Estates, IL – September 2, 2017
Long hours for those employees who are dedicated to their role. Management for Food Service is in the process of re-evaluation; lackluster at best. Workplace morale in F&N is biased and unbalanced. Employees with integrity and good work ethic may find it difficult to work alongside employees who are just there to receive a paycheck and allowed to poorly perform their job tasks.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Hoffman Estates, IL – April 28, 2017
As hospital systems go, this one is sub par in my opinion. Advocate Good Shepard has a much better environment to work in. The hours were long and the shifts were brutal. I loved caring for the sickest of patients though.
Phlebotomist II (Former Employee) – Bismarck, ND – April 19, 2017
Drawing patient in the morning through out the hospital. After morning draws are done, I would come down and draw out patients until it was my turn to have breakfast/lunch I Learned how to draw Neonatal and Pediatrics from one of the best trainers ever. Our management team was great, I felt like I could talk to them regarding issues, if I was not able to solve the situation between the two of us. The hardest part of the job was feeling comfortable with drawing Neonatal and Pediatrrics by my self.
