I thought this was a good company...until I worked there. People are not lying when they talk about training! No one trained me or even volunteered. When I asked questions my co workers seemed annoyed. I even over heard the person that was to do the training in my office comment to another co worker that it wasn't their job to train me!!! Really?! I went to my "manager" multiple times on getting help. It didn't matter. She was too busy shopping online!!!! What a joke!

That I need to start looking for a new job despite bing here for a couple of months. You learn how to put on a brave face just to get through the BS, lying HR members and berating managers every single day. It's like walking on broken glass and nails just waiting for someone, for example, to cuss you out because you did not replace the paper in the printer. I can only imagine what would be done to me if I did some that was actually serious.

Completely useless HR! Management are unprofessional and will make you look horrible to make themselves look great. Nursing staff can give two S@&** about their patients. Training staff will set you up to fair and not train you right. They will also make you look like a complete fool in front of management when your questioned about your performance when really it’s your trainers fault for incorrectly trading you!

You are allotted tens days a year but do not abuse them. If you have collected enough PTO, you can use those as substitutes. Just a fair warning, if you are ill and insist on coming in, you might be asked to leave until you are better.

It has to get a lot better with the personnel that are doing the interviewing. They are not seasoned with people who have years of excellent experience in the work force and who would be first class employees. They are bypassing this type of candidate and not even giving feedback as to the results of the interviews. Everything needs to be done in a more respectful upscale professional manner. If you would like to discuss my input feel free for me to get an appointment to meet with the supervisor of the hiring process. If you would like qualified decent employees you need to treat the interview process with extreme dignity to the individual spending g their time and energy

It depends entirely on your position.. nursing staff is always short-staffed, therefore its difficult to get time off. In my position, we work it out as coworkers and can take as much PTO as we have accrued, usually a 7-10 days at a time.

After kissing butt and browning your nose, all you get is 15 cents yearly. Yep! That's it. If you failed to suck up to your manager... you won't even get that.
