Terrible experience at UCONN
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – CT – July 30, 2018
I didn't even get past my orientation before finding out, through an email, that I was fired. Who does that? Well, apperently staff at UCONN!!!!!! I was first off misinformed about the days in which I was to attend orientation. I was given a typed outline of two days only of orientation. At the end of the second day I was told that I had to return for the remainder of that week to complete the orientation. Then, after explaining that I was not able to proceed with the weeks worth of orientation due to not having made daycare arrangements for the entire week, I got fired. I feel discriminated against because I have been penalized for having children who need to have sitters set up. BUT....if I'd have known orientation was for the full week up front, this would not have been an issue. I did not like the quick pace of everything, as it felt like I was just a number going through my health screenings and onboarding. I counted on two hands how many times HR told us in orientation, "it's all about who you know." Well UCONN, apparently that all it's about. I will not recommend UCONN to anyone for employment. Such a shame. I'm just glad to not have invested many years with this company.
