There are no career advancement
Courier (Current Employee) –  Rochester, NYApril 6, 2018
A typical day at work involves, receiving and delivering specimens at different locations throughout the hospital. I learned the different lab locations. The hardest part of the job is going to the different labs and not getting any help . The most enjoyable part of the job is, interacting with different departments.

Diverse workforce with high productivity
X-Ray Client Technician (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYMarch 26, 2018
The workforce represented different people from all across the world. The environment was not exclusive and was very good at communicating especially in between departments. In the emergency room is where the best of the hospital shows how they utilize their skills with others to get the best result.

Salary much lower than national average, very bad shifts schedule, understaffing
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  Elmwood Ave, RochesterFebruary 24, 2018
Salary much lower than the national average, very bad shifts schedule because they use a mixed schedule policy, so you can never have a routine shift and that is very bad for your health, personal life and work performance. Server understaffing make there to be a stressful unsafe environment for nursing practice! Good benefits in its area. It’s not always friendly work environment to nurses who are not from local. Some nurse leaders are dictators treating the floor like her own kingdom so the floor is divided.
