    I worked at Crothall Services full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - There are a lot of resources if you ever run into an issue.
    - They have large accounts, so you have plenty of networking abilities.
    - Yearly bonuses, sometimes random bonuses depending on how good the company is doing.
    - Not cheap, so they will spend what they need to run the account.

    Cons

    - Too much pressure!!
    - I felt like an hourly employee rather than a manager when I had to "roll my sleeves up" all of the time.
    - They hire anybody!!!!! So you get completely inexperienced people, and they are hard to get rid of unless they do something really illegal.
    - I feel like there is a flaw in the process! They make you work harder not smarter, causing people to burn out quickly!
    - Very shady at times...Be careful who you trust.
    - Prepare yourself to work 16 hour days. Don't join Crothall unless your family doesn't mind not seeing you all week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop taking sides with the lazy people and keep your eyes open for the hard workers who drive HCAHP scores in the right direction.

    Pros

    Great company, wish I did not make the mistake of thinking the grass is greener on the other side. Should have never have left. If you stay with the company and do what your suppose to and pay your dues. Great rewards await you. Can't say enough about the company but you have to be willing to move a bit to truly advance. Be smart and focus on your responsibilities and do what's right by the customer and you will have a great career and life.

    Cons

    Some hard hours and shifts but it's just time, you will get to were you want if you pay your dues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it going

    Pros

    Nothing positive. They came in and ruined the hospital through continuously poor decision making abilities.

    Cons

    They were contracted out to run EVS management and made one bad decision after another. OSHA showed up a couple of months after they took over because of the lack of cleanliness there rearranging of the dept. caused. Trash over flows on the units daily. A lot more work injuries. They doubled the amount of management and leads, yet they do nothing of use. They target individuals they don't like and support those they do. Went from a decent hospital to one that I would never want anyone I cared about to step foot in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They have been advised several times about important issues and completely ignore them. They just don't care.

    I worked at Crothall Services

    Pros

    My position as dispatcher was Monday through Friday, no weekends.

    Cons

    Working at hospital meant no weekday holidays off. Required to work on time-sensitive projects with little or no training. Pay barely enough to survive.
