    I have been working at Salem Hospital part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    All care teams work hard together to provide the best experience for patients. I love the people; RNs, CNAs, floor management, surgeons and specialist I get to work.

    Cons

    Senior management feel disconnected to floor staff. They don't seem to care about stressors placed on floor staff, but rather about patient numbers, how many in and how many out daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Round on floors more frequently. Sit down and observe the daily activities on the floor. Ask yourself, "How can I personally help the efficiency of the floor to increase patient positive outcomes and reduce staff stressors?"

    IT Staff Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Salem Hospital.

    Interview Details

    Initially received email invitation to interview and it took a couple of weeks to go through phone screens and schedule an onsite interview. When I got onsite and started the interview it turned out to be very different from how the job was initially described. The staff questions and job expectations were different from the description by the hiring manager during phone screens. Classic bait and switch interview process.There seems to be a disconnect between management and staff where management is out of touch with day to day activities.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected question from the staff was, "Were you given a description of this job?" I repeated the description as it was described to me and they looked confused and acted like it was my shortcoming. That was the end of the interview. From my albeit limited exposure to the organization it seems like a highly politicized environment where popularity counts more than ability. Even if it went well and I were offered a job I would turn it down because I value skills over politics. As a 20 year IT veteran I can spot dysfunction when I see it.   Answer Question
