    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees more and recognize we've had to endure cutbacks in every area. Thanking us for our hard work would do wonders for morale.

    Providence does not, I repeat, DOES NOT care about contractors.

    I have been working at Providence Health & Services as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    First I would like to start off by saying I'm not ranting here because I quit or got fired. I found a better job somewhere else that actually values their employee's life and now that I look back I couldn't ever see myself with Providence.

    Cons

    Let's see where to begin. First off, if you are a contractor be prepared to be treated sub human. Providence considers you a number on a budget and so does the management and other employees. They will fire you and replace you faster than you can get out the door.. I've seen it first hand and it out right disgusts me.

    Also, if you think that working hard gets you to the top (as in hired on by Providence) you are sadly mistaken. There are contractors that have been there for over 2 years and promised by management they would soon be hired and then get fired over the PHONE. I'm not lying here folks.

    My advice to any contractor is if you absolutely NEED a paycheck than take the job and during the down time apply for other jobs else where..

    Hmm.. what else. Oh that's right. If you have a personal life than you can kiss that good bye. Management expects you to work overtime and if you don't than I promise you will not stick around. They need you to work Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat, Sun for your new schedule? You bet your ass you are going to work those hours.

    I really could go on and on. Just trust me. When I got hired on every contractor there told me to get out. No one values their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice?? LOL. Management wouldn't listen anyways.
