    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Artesia General Hospital full-time (Less than a year)


    Pro: Recent hospital renovations resulted in comfortable, inviting, public and patient care areas with a modern appearance. The public and patient care areas were very clean, floors shined! Great Mexican food locally. Close to Carlsbad Caverns and quirky Roswell for a fun time. Go Aliens!!


    Con: Areas not seen by the public were not renovated and looked neglected. Food Service, Purchasing and especially the Facilities departments are in need of major renovation. The hospital is not accredited by JCAHO or AOA. The Medicare audit when I was there, resulted in a number of deficiencies, many in Food Service, others areas with fewer line items. They state gave them less than 30 days to make corrections which they made and passed. The general population is extremely conservative. The town has built up around an oil refinery so the area doesn't smell that great. Rent are high as locals have bought up homes, renting to law enforcement personnel attending the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center who receive a high allotment for living expenses.

    Advice to Management

    Recommend that hospital executives not place personal orders for supplies and have them shipped to the hospital, especially ammunition as it needs to be stored in a safe and secure location. Hospital executives should not lecture managers on political views during department meetings. Recommend that executives not tell managers to be careful who they vote for or what action they might have to take if a certain political faction were to be reelected. It's also rather insulting for an executive to tell you how great the state you came from was until the political tide shifted against their beliefs. There are certain things you don't talk about at work and politics is a big one.

    Material Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Artesia, NM
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Artesia General Hospital (Artesia, NM) in May 2012.


    Interview was quick. Had a lot of experience, over 38 years hospital experience in a clinical setting, sterile processing, as Housekeeper and 28 years in Purchasing, that's what they were looking for.

    Interview Questions

    • Not really a question. The interviewer had Republican Party memorabilia, pictures of past presidents indicating his political leanings. This was not the CEO, it was the CFO.   Answer Question


    They called me on my cell phone driving out of town and offered the job immediately. Offered an a very high salary, moving expenses. They were generous.
