How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences? What are the steps along the way?
I think it took maybe 3 weeks to get hired.
Of course you have the application and the interviews. But then you have a week to a couple weeks of training depending on your job and location.
My days an hours varied, at first it was 5am -1:30p 5 on 2 off. Then I suggested 4 10hr days my dept supervisor loved the idea (5a-330p) & it stayed that way for about 10months. After 9 months, my hrs changed to 9a-5:30p M-F with a lead Tech title & a bit more pay to, for a little over a yr. A position opened in Client Services/Call Center. I was asked to apply for it. I got the position & LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it!! I was in that dept for 3yrs. My hrs were 10:30a-7p M-F Holidays & weekends off. I spent 6 months traing a person to take my position in Clinical Lab but without lead tech title. All while still going to College Fulltime for my RN. After 5yrs I had to retire due to being injured on the job. I miss my co-workers & all but 1 supervisor.
Cannot speak to this for employees, however the stipend for PhD students has recently been raised to $30,000 per year, which is a very competitive amount considering the relatively low cost of living in the Little Rock metropolitan area.
How do you feel about going to work each day at University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences?
Love my patients because I am a nurse first and a compassionate human being. I respect and admire my coworkers and physicians but because of an undercurrent of lack of job security it makes for a stressful environment. Many employees feel there is and was a "good ole boy" mentality in management all the way to the top, resulting in mismanagement of finances and put UAMS in a detrimental financial state.
How do you feel about the future of University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences?
I think it can go far under the right management leaders. Always been a great hospital and great place to work for, its the workers and management that can make or break a company.
