I have been working at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)
Super Inexpensive medical, dental, vision. Six Paid holidays for 12 hour employees and a good amount vacation that you can roll over year to year, plus separate sick time. Because it's not so big, the main OR is a pretty close knit group. This is especially true for cardiac surgery, which I love. Hospital administration does a good job of taking care of employees required to be at work during snow storms, offering meal vouchers and such in the cafe.
Cardiac techs and nurses float to general surgery, but do NOT get paid extra. Base pay is one of, if not THE lowest in the area.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center (Harvey, IL) in May 2011.
Reume was send from career representative from the school I recently graduated from. I received a telephone interview; to give a brief account of my qualificatiions and skills. I was scheduled for an interview with the supervisor in the Medical Records department. I dressed accordingly; in a black pants suit and my porfolio. I was given a description of the office duties, introduced to the staff and asked if I had any questions. I asked several questions pertaining to the position. My resume was reviewed and that was the end of the interview. I was told I would be contacted in two weeks. When I did not get a response in the two weeks, I called to inquire about my status. I was told I was overqualified and that they were looking for someone long term. I was puzzled, because I was never asked over the phone or in person interview about my long term goals. I stated I was just getting back into the work world because I had been unemployed for two years and I had just completed another course to upgrade my education. I stated I did not have a problem with starting off as entry level. The office staff that I was introduced to seemed standoffish. (they were not comfortable with a newcomer). That made me feel a little uncomfortable but not unfocused on my purpose for being there.
