It's either so busy that it's impossible to keep up or so awfully boring that it seems like it would have been better to call in sick. The way the job descriptions are worded, there is no way to know if your job will be too busy, a good steady busy or "OMG" slow and dead.

The hiring process for the Center is long. I do not know why but it can vary between several weeks or months before the actual on-boarding process begins or that you are even told whether you have been hired.

In the 3 years I have worked at the Center, there has never been a raise for anyone in my division. I work in the children's division where there are no yearly evaluations so maybe the rest of the organization lucked out. The new CEO even took away our annual bonus.

It can take several weeks to several months to hear back from the Center. It's a big health care provider that has many locations throughout Bexar County so the hiring process can take a while.

I was asked how I would track down a missing chart- I said I would first check the sign out sheet and then I would send out a unit email asking who had it and if that got no response I would go office to office until I found the missing chart. I was asked if I had ever audited a chart for complete records. yes that has always been part of the in patient staff job description.
