    I have been working at Allegheny General Hospital part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great location, salary, parking (on site and off), highmark making it better

    Cons

    Nursing union!! Contributes to struggle for managers to make staff accountable....Don't want to deal w "grievances". Pay a lot of dues.....no worth. Nursing is no place for a union, especially a non nursing/non professional union

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dissolve that union!
    Uniforms! (Not white)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Allegheny General Hospital in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    After applying online at AGH I was contacted to conduct a face to face interview with the unit director. She was professional and very nice. We talked for about an hour about the job description and the unit. She went through a series of questions about nursing and nursing related situations. After that we toured the unit, met some staff and some physicians. In the end it took them about a week to get back to me and they offered me the job.
