Good Until CHS bought the Hospital

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Florence, SC

I worked at Carolinas Hospital System full-time for more than 8 years

ProsPeople working there for the most part are a great bunch. The Nurse Supervisors are great people.

ConsPlace can be hostile and unpleasant place to work, if you have a director who does not know how to treat people, Senior Management will not step in until its almost too late to fix problems with Supervisors/Directors. Highly Understaffed !

Advice to Senior ManagementHire some people, Fix you management issues, make the place enjoyable to work at.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I am disappointed with many aspects of this job I've been at for the past 7 years.

Admissions Clerk (Current Employee)
Florence, SC

I have been working at Carolinas Hospital System full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat caring coworkers. Provides great care for the patients.

ConsManagement expects the impossible. Management hires other management that has no management experience. Cutting benefits, no pay raises. I make approximately $1.50 more an hour than I started with, 7 years ago.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement expects employs to treat patients with the highest respect and compassion. The management expects employees to treat other employees with the same respect. However, the upper management does not adhere to the same standards. Some will not even acknowledge your existence when you speak to them. Do not cut our benefits. You can afford to buy up all the hospitals up for grabs so you should not cut benefits.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Carolinas Hospital is an above average place to work.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Carolinas Hospital System

ProsBenefits are very good, especially compared to other hospitals in the region.
Pay is decent, commensurate with experience.
Co-workers are pleasant.

ConsJob specific training could be better, along with more places of reference once in the position.
Departments and tasks could be more cohesive in the flow of work.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is not much feedback from departmental managers.
Training could be more in depth instead of mostly on-the-job.
There are too many system log-ins, and different programs to use, please simplify.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Understaffed and underpaid

Operator (Former Employee)

ProsThere are a couple of managers that will try and help you. Overall the people who work there try.

ConsGROSSLY Understaffed. Underpaid. Favoritism. Inept Managers (most of them).

Advice to Senior ManagementHIRE PEOPLE! Acknowledge good work and good workers. A free meal for a full shift of work would be nice.
