    Former Employee - CNA  in  Birmingham, AL
    Former Employee - CNA in Birmingham, AL

    Pros

    I was a CNA and I enjoyed working with my patients. I also enjoyed some of the staff.

    Cons

    Very low pay and my experience of being an LPN in the Air Force did not give me any credit or allow me to use it towards my job. I left straight from the AF and came to work and CHS, it seemed like I got demoted. I went from getting around $15-16/hr to $9/hr. I also was starting IV's, doing blood draws, suturing up lacerations, putting in G-tubes and J-tubes, working in GI removing polyps in, assisting in ERCP's, assisting in colonoscopies, and so much more. Then at CHS all I could do was vital signs and change bedding. The work was tough and not worth $9/hr. Some of the nurses and doctors are cocky and if you aren't a nurse or doctor they feel that they are superior to you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that YOU are an average person just like everyone else. It takes every employee to make that hospital work all the way from the workers in the cafeteria to housekeeping and up to the neurosurgeons to the CEO. It'd be better if the work place was more of a "WORK PLACE" where everyone works along side each other instead of a high school click.

    Pros

    Great organization, great mission in this community.

    Cons

    Below-average salary, "small shop" mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reign in the middle management. They have promoted to their current positions simply by remaining employed longer than other candidates, and may not have the skills to perform their job.
