    I worked at Centra Health full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Most of the people there are genuine and want to be there, it is just not a job. Most of the people who are caregivers like what they do. People in other areas are helpful, nice, speak to you and help people who have that lost look on their face.

    Cons

    Some managers have higher expectations. There is still some of that "Good Ole boy" mentality there. Some managers are awesome and have your back, but you have to show them you are worth your weight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no such thing as promotions except when annual evaluations occur. Management has become too top heavy again like it did many years ago. There are some people who have been given second chances in different positions, try giving a few more. It's not always about the money. Change is good.

    Application Details

    Interview Details

    The interview was for half and hour and interviewer asked standar questions. I was slight disconcerted because it seemed as if the interviewer wasn't really listening to my responses and she seembed a bit rushed. However, I received an offer fairly quickly.
