    I worked at University of Maryland Medical Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As a new grad OT, I can't imagine a better place to have a first job. They provided me with a thorough training process (~8 weeks) long with one on one guidance. Even after this, they were always training me to different areas in the hospitals or holding different inservices. After working here, I feel like I can go anywhere and feel comfortable. Health benefits are also great.

    Cons

    Salary is significantly lower when compared to other facilities in the area. You also have to consider parking costs which ranges ~$17-60 biweekly depending on garage you choose. Difficult to get time-off unless requested months in advance. Disorganized at times likely just because it's so large of a facility. Difficult to grow/move up with this company, limited raises for salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lot of micromanagement from senior therapists, however I wouldn't necessarily say this is a con, just a different style of leadership.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at University of Maryland Medical Center.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Took about a month or so to hear back. Rec'd an email for scheduling a phone interview with someone in HR. Phone interview was straightforward. Then rec'd an email to schedule an interview with the hiring department. Scheduled quickly. Day of - waited in lobby while associate was paged and came down to get me. Was suppose to interview with head of project, but he was running late. Other people in the office tried to keep me occupied until he returned. Very friendly. Head came in finally. Not the friendliest guy, but interview went smoothly. Then interviewed with associates. Interview was straightforward. Was mainly asked about my personal background, education, and past experience.
