I worked at Corry Memorial Hospital full-time (More than a year)Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDoesn't RecommendNegative Outlook
Loved the patients. They were the only reason I stayed there for so long. The family members and patients showed more respect and gratitude than anyone on staff ever did.
The supervisor I had played favorites and had no idea how to lead. She also had no management skills or supervisory experience. She got hired into a position she did not earn because they were desperate for someone to fill the position. The OJT did not work in this case. There was too much favoritism and hiring of friends and family members who got preferential treatment. Wages and benefits were often cut and we were expected to work long hours of overtime, sometimes up to 22 or 24 hours, and they did not appreciate it.
Advice to Management
Listen when the employees complain, and take their complaints more seriously. Stop protecting the people who are not doing their jobs and coddling those who play favorites.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Accepted OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Corry Memorial Hospital (Corry, PA) in March 2008.
Took several phone calls to get an interview after their initial contact with me. The supervisor kept cancelling on me. Then she sighed all through the interview like it was really taxing her. She had a pigsty for an office. I was hired for one job and then demoted to another job but was expected to fulfill the original role on command. I was passed over for a different shift by people just hired because they "needed" me on the shift I was on; however, upon my hire I was told I could switch my shift when the slot came open. Family members and friends were hired and did not want to do their jobs but nothing happened when they were reported. Patient abuse was rampant and nothing was ever done about it. I was told there would be quick action if that ever happened. Smoking on the grounds was not allowed I was told. Everyone did it and nothing ever happened. My interview was a sham and full of lies. Nothing about my interview ever came to pass. I did not even get the salary they promised me when they hired me, and we got in trouble if we called in sick, for we had no sick days even though I was told we did.
- Does it matter to you if you dont get a lunch, even though it is an unpaid half hour? There are some days you may not get to take your lunch (which turned out to be every day). 1 Answer
I asked for an amount I thought was fair, she agreed to it and then after my first week on the job, pay was slashed across the board and my hourly wage plummeted significantly. After two years, I still was not up to where I was supposed to have started. Merit raises were a nickel to fifteen cents if you were lucky (or a relative).
