I started out in an outpatient specialty area....I was treated poorly by my fellow nurses. Was ridiculed and told "I was crazy " for returning to nursing after staying home to raise our son. I have never met so many bitter and negative people in 1 place; getting orders barked at me from the other nurses, the MA's and lab staff. I transferred into another area. That didn't work out either. they say they don't discriminate because of age, but I didn't last through orientation in an area that was my forte. I believe that they were told to "find something" on me in order to get rid of me. The reason I was let go was Lame in my opinion. I used to love being a nurse, but not anymore. Nurse manager refused to listen to me said "it's your word against theirs" and walked away from me.
Speech Language Pathologist Intern (Former Employee) – McCandless, PA – January 12, 2019
As a student, the support was wonderful. I was able to learn from various professionals in the field. Patient care was handled well within the inpatient rehab center. It was difficult to manage between SLP, PT, and OT for rehab hours, but overall it was done in a positive way for the patients.
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Erie, PA – January 9, 2019
Hamot was a great place to work before it was taken over by UPMC. A lot of experience and culture went out the door when they stopped focusing on the patients and employees and focused on nothing but ways to save money.
Its a job
More work but not more pay, lazy incompetent nurses and management.
falls in the middle for competitive compensation, somewhat local commute
certified senior pharmacy technician. (CPHT.SR) (Current Employee) – Monroeville, PA – January 7, 2019
high turn around rate, employer wants the best employees they can hire, but does not treat employees like they are an asset. would be a better company as an entirety if management knew how to treat its employees.
Senior Professional Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – January 6, 2019
Professional but should be much more communication with leaders and staff. Staffing and coordinating schedules should also be improved. Many times particular employess did not have to follow the rules.
tough work atmosphere, lack of guidance and training

Staffing Coordinator (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – December 24, 2018
I really enjoy my job and responsibilities. The management and the nursing Administrator do not deal with problems effectively. They treat good employees poorly. There is no dignity and respect in this UPMC facility. The pay rate is not enough for all the other responsibilities added to the job.
Milieu Therapist/WPIC (Current Employee) – Oakland, PA – December 18, 2018
Very stressful work environment and this is not caused by the patients. Lack of teamwork from non-milieu positioned staff members. Spend several hours on the floor on your own while trying to perform OBS, ADLS, care all at the same time. Nurses and non-milieu staff members spend the majority of the shift in the nurses station.
milieu staff works hard and as a team
nurses won't help with care, leadership out of sight, poor pay
CT Technologist (Current Employee) – McKeesport, PA – December 15, 2018
Once I finished clinical in 2016 I was hired as a casual in the x-ray department of McKeesport Hospital. During my first few months I had an opportunity to cross train in the CT department where I found the job I can honestly say I love.
