I have been working at Johns Hopkins Health System full-time (More than 5 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
I love my job and work with some great people. Provides $10000 tuition reimbursement for all full time employees and their children, several people stay there because of this benefit whether they like the company or not which is unfortunate because they create a negative atmosphere. The organization has a rich culture, and a lot of tenured employees that do not want to change. They provide training for those who seek it out. There is a lot of promoting within for those who take the initiative.
People who have worked in the same jobs for 20 plus years and are unhappy but won't leave. People complain about the pay, but they have options to find employment elsewhere. Some managers as with other organizations don't know how to manager. As with most healthcare organizations in order to get the most out of your heath insurance you have to use JH doctors. People walk around the hospital glued to their cell phones instead of helping people.
Advice to Management
Become visible, I have seen the president walk the halls once or twice and he wasn't really speaking to people; lighten up. Have more town hall meetings, you have over 7000 employees and one town hall, and most of the attendees are managers not employees, why because we are working. Have at least 3 or 4 TH meetings so the different shifts can participate. Start getting rid of the dead weight. There are to many managers and employees that do not need to work here because they do not do their jobs. We keep doing the survey every year but nothing changes. Start paying what out competitors pay, we keep loosing people to Univ or MD, MedStar and Sinai. Start bringing in more people from the outside we need more change, way behind on technology. Still doing paper evaluations, most companies I've worked for stopped that 5 years ago. Takes to long to get an appointment with the doctors, get more since we have to use them
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
Applied, got a phone screen invite and was then invited in person. I believe they were nice and were quite fair. I enjoyed the interview process ( since I was answering most of the questions correctly ) and at that point of time, I had thought I had got the job. It was still a good experience overall till the next steps happened I contacted the Manager who interviewed me after 2 weeks( Since I heard nothing from him) , he told me to contact the HR rep and said she had left me a Voice mail. I contacted the HR person( I called her 3 times from 9 am onwards and left a voice mail, she never replied , finally out of sheer frustration, I called her for a 4th time at 4 pm and she finally answered) and asked if she has left any voicemail for me, she had no idea of what I was talking about, she even went on to say ' I don't remember sending any VM'...but in a few minutes she realized she did send one, but then she started speaking something that I did not understand at all. I kept telling her that I am XYZ person and pointed to the interview I had appeared with John Hopkins, and then she realized she was speaking about someone else and then remembered who I was and then our conversation went smoothly. ( I still maintain I never got any voice mail or call from her). I checked my job status on the website and it is showing a funny and unusual status now after my conversation with the HR person . I am almost certain now that they have completely mixed up my identity with someone else She told me that I will get a reply in another 2 weeks, it is 2 weeks and still have not heard anything from them. What HURTS me is that they made me drive all the way to baltimore and they do not even have the courtesy to tell me a 'NO'. When a candidate who is in need for a job drives all the way from Rochester Ny to baltimore MD on his expense, the lest he would expect is at least a final reply of Yes or No. Instead I am left with chasing a HR rep who has no idea about what she is doing and talking about . I will give them credit where it is due and say that they did a very good job of the interview itself and were very nice on the interview day ( both the interviewers). But the aftermath has not been so good. I hope no one goes through the same situation I did. I have no anger about not being selected for the job . I just am disappointed with the confusions and no replies.
