    Stressful environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits are okay but if you do not use ARH facilities you will have higher out of pocket.

    ConsNo increase in salary here. New hires wait 5 years to move to standard pay rate. Management team has not received salary increase in several years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf upper level management expect to retain qualified workers, especially supervisors they need to treat those managers better.

    Very inadequate training with extremely poor salary and stuck-up employees

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you like learning on your own with absolutely no guidance, then you're all set. Personally, I prefer to feel welcomed and at least told what I'm supposed to do in a typical workday on my first day at a new hospital.

    ConsEach hospital in the chain is different, but in Hazard, the employees are stuck up and talk behind your back. Compared with what your profession would be compensated at other hospitals, you are VASTLY underpaid. There are too many pharmacists on staff, as well as trying to have a "residency program" and precept students, that it's just a cluster of confusion in the actual pharmacy, and on the floors, the students feel lost, and sometimes the pharmacists are just twiddling their thumbs to look busy. It's a waste of time and education to work there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProperly pay and train your staff

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    a learning experience

    Coder (Former Employee) Hazard, KY

    Prospeople generally are friendly and helpful to new hires, but keep their lips tight when need be.

    Conssome people think they are somebody special because they work there

     

    Large system with small comapny feel

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThere is a sense of community and comradery at ARH that is rarely seen in systems of similar size.

    ConsARH is a unique system that can appear a bit disorganized. Its hospitals are rural which is a whole new world for someone with an urban or midsize town background. It takes some acclimating.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep things organized.
