Administrative Associate (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC 27514 – July 13, 2018
Lucky for me, as a floater I have been able to get assignments that were flexible with my schedule since I do have another job and the supervisors have all been supportive. The only con is that if you can't fully commit to full days, it may affect how soon or how many assignments you get. The position is per diem if you don't work, you don't get paid (that includes holidays). I believe at this time you have to wait at least a year in the position before you can apply for anything full time with the hospital.
Anesthesia Technician (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – July 9, 2018
Working at UNC was great, Management could be better as far as holding everyone accountable for his/her job duties.The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that I helped someone whom was sick to get better.
Great working hours
Can be stressful at times when management plays a part in making situations stressful.
Dietetic Assistant (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – July 2, 2018
Very poor management, the work and environment would be better if it wasn't for the poor management. but other than that the benefits are good even though the salary is low. Does get stressful at times to work in the Nutrition services department but its worth it as the patients are satisfied.

UNC is a great organization that provides quality care to patients. The higher management does value the staff but management in the 2 departments that I've been in have proven to me that if you don't brown nose you will only get bullied. If you don't find your niche you'll only report to work unhappy and miserable which will result in burn out!
Benefits, great PTO
Park and ride, pay to park, toxic work environment, favoritism
Nurse (Former Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – June 27, 2018
Race is and isn't an issue at UNC. There are some that get away with just about everything and nobody has the backbone to enforce stated policies...Then you have the other end of the spectrum - someone's doing everything right, but won't get promoted because of it. Hopefully you don't end up having either experience. I will say that it felt like being with family at times where teamwork thrived. That is definitely a major plus and management supports you in doing your job.
Call Center Representative/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – June 8, 2018
Some people do not like working at UNC however it depends. I worked in food service and of course like anywhere there was drama etc., but I stayed out of it. It pays wells for what I did in a hospital setting. Benefits are GREAT!!! and in my dept. PTO... You can use your pto hours as long as you have them OR you can sell them, your choice. Working here was not bad, but I moved and the commute was blah. I will say it was a high turnover rate in my department as well. The level of respect. from my managers, was decreasing my last few months there. That may be another reason I left. All in all... it is what you make it. The "higher ups" are amazing people. They really care about the people that work there and their concerns. One of them bought me food. I wasn't hungry but he did not want to see me go without eating... REALLY?!? and I love food lol.
Pay, Benefits, Pto
short lunch break, pay to park, SOME staff members

CERTIFIED NURSE ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – Chapel Hill, NC – June 1, 2018
In my work as a CNA 1, I have been credited with an unbeatable bedside manner. It's as simple as letting your true self out for the duration of a 12 hour shift and being able to exercise compassion for another human being in a meaningful way that will positively impact another person's life. That, to me, is satisfying employment. Further, UNC Hospital's culture is full of opportunities to expand one's knowledge base and further one's career goals. The medical industry is fascinating, and being a human face to mediate the terrifying experience of hospitalization is truly humbling. The management is supportive and attentive, and very honest. The workplace hustle can be intimidating at first, but finding where one belongs in the daily grind of patient care tasks is all a part of the experience!
Very little labor, a lot of time to sit and study, interesting work, good conversation, changing atmosphere
