Technician (Current Employee) – Morgantown, WV – February 2, 2019
Typical work day is you clock-in go to your assigned station, get report from the previous Tech. Once you are seated at your station you start your strip interpretations. We do strips every 4 hours (7p, 11p, 3a, 7a, 11a, 3p). If any events happen with a patient you immediately call the nurse taking care of said patient to report the event, then promptly document the event and file it in your station patient book.
The management there always think of their employees and different ways to make their employee and also their patients feel cared for.
Most enjoyable part of the job is all the friendships I've made over the three years I've worked there.
WVU Medicine is a wonderful place to grow professionally. I started my career here almost 5 years ago and have no intention of leaving. There are several opportunities for advancement. I have worked under three different managers here and all have been phenomenal. I cannot speak highly enough about this employer.
WVU Medicine is a very nice place to work. I have worked at Ruby for three and a half years. I worked on the Observation floor for three years and loved it, and recently transferred to the Oncology floor and i love that. The managers are very willing to work with my school schedule.
Associate Systems Analyst (Current Employee) – Morgantown, WV – January 15, 2019
WVU medicine is a great career choice. I have learned to grow and use my full ability and potential to successfully fulfill my job duties. I have also had great support from fellow employees to achieve one goal and that is the safety and satisfaction for the customer.
All the positions I had at WVU, SICU, Peds, Medical Record and other floors were all a great experience for me. The managers I had were all compassionate and cared for their employees. Worked with you in family situations. Was a great learning place.
Payroll deduction for meals, uniforms. PTO
Sometimes stressful for lack of enough employees on some days.
HIM Coding (Current Employee) – Morgantown, WV – December 28, 2018
Work/Life balance used to be great!
Now, its go, go, go, and more, more, more. HIM employees (coding especially) are expected to take on every new clinic/hospital that is bought with little to no notice. While productivity and quality are ok, the work load has become unmanageable. Adding staff doesn't help when they add 3x more sites than employees. Supervisors (some good, some awful) and Educators are visibly stressed out, overworked and it shows. They do their best but, everyone is drowning in work.
Expectations are through the roof with no sign on stopping...great for job security but you wont keep the good employees you have if you keep pushing them past their breaking point.
I never thought of leaving WVU Medicine (10+ years) until now.
Management is very easy to work with, pay is good, people are friendly. The most enjoyable part of the job is the working environment. People have fun. The one thing I don't care for is there is no parking for employees. We have to park off site and shuttle to work.
There are quite a lot of call offs every day, especially weekends. Weekends are the worst time to work( hectic,short staffed, newer people who don't know what to do). There is a lot of drama and that includes management, but its not too bad if you just stay away from the people who start it and do what you're supposed to be doing. I did learn a lot here though and believe that it helped me pass my certification test. They are really good about cross training people in different areas and letting you pick up as much on call as you want.
Always a chance for overtime, Job security, They are reworking the pay scale(higher pay/promotions)
Not a great work environment, Way too many call offs, Hard to get vacation time/time off
I feel that WVU Medicine has great potential to be a wonderful place to work. I also feel that it does better than a lot of large companies. I feel that the environment has changes within WVU Medicine within the past couple of years and that the company as a whole is suffering from some of these changes. I still value my career opportunities that have been provided through WVU Medicine and encourage others to seek employment here.
We are required to do a lot of medical knowledge for the pay without the education/training for what is expected. I feel the pay could be higher for the customer service that is provided. Insurance could be better for being in the health care business.
Direct Patient Care Provider (Current Employee) – Bridgeport, WV – October 31, 2018
There is so much potential in this organization, however it is stifled by money hungry management. The focus of this organization is no longer health care. The almighty dollar controls everything. Management constantly asks of their employees but rarely gives so much as a thank you. We work like a machine and we are excellent at what we do, but we are held to a thin line. Don’t step on it or over it with your opinion or dare stand up for yourself. You’re a dime a dozen and they know it and won’t hesitate to tell you so.
Helps you grow and advance career in healthcare. Very insightful people work there that work very hard day and night. Didn’t want to stay working as a cna but plenty of people staying there several years at a time while they go onto become nurses and other healthcare jobs with higher pay
Central Completion Analyst (Current Employee) – Morgantown, WV – October 7, 2018
My job is a great job, I really enjoy it and I enjoy working at WVU Medicine. There is many opportunities available at WVU for anyone that is searching for a new career. I have learned to release medical records, process claims and now I do Central Completion which is my favorite. A typical day is like any other day, you have your good day's and your bad days, you go through up/ down/sadness and happiness with your co-workers, your like a big happy family I wouldn't trade my co-workers for any others.
If you’re not an RN you’re not going to fit in! If you are a cry-baby and can’t accept any way but your way this is the place for you! They will CATER to you! If you do your job and you don’t complain, they will walk all over you! And if you speak up for yourself they will bully and harass you until you quit. Nothing you do will ever be good enough, they will find something wrong with everything you do. Even if you have a lot of experience and a lot of seniority you are treated as if you’re the worst employee ever. If you are a patient sitter, you’re forgetten about and no matter how many times you call or yell out for a break no one seems to come. Seems safe, right? And don’t get anyone started on parking. I suggest you re-evaluate thinking about working here.
Very few coworkers, they’re few and far between to have amazing ones.
Short breaks, no relief, management sucks, lack of advancement, lack of equipment because it’s always broken.
Help Desk Technician (Former Employee) – Morgantown, WV – October 1, 2018
They have continued to expand at such a pace, that almost everyone I interacted with constantly complained about under staffing issues, and HR could not meet their own goal metrics to get people hired fast enough to meet the need of the departments. Due to the under staffing, people chronically complain about being over-worked, which produces a negative working environment. Management lacks the skills to implement any type of proven process that are able to properly identify and resolve the present issues. This is the worst employer that I have worked at in my 40 year work history.
poor management, under staffing, over working, negative work env.
