    Great job if you like drama, gossip and lack of organization.

    Pros

    Good pay and steady hours. Easy job for the most part, a lot of openings if you want to transfer departments/learn other areas

    Cons

    High turnover, so short staffed that there is no disiplinary action for bad behaviors because they don't want to lose more staff, so everyone pretty much runs rampant and does what they want. No patient focus, unsafe practices and you will be worked to death trying to pick up the slack.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce policies, treat staff fairly and recognize the people who do well.

    As a volunteer, I spent most of the time sitting around doing very little.

    Former Employee - Auxiliary Volunteer in Williamsburg, VA

    I worked at Sentara Healthcare as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of time to study and do homework during your shift. The nurses were generally very friendly and grateful of the work volunteers did. Great exposure to the different hospital departments especially if you are able to register early and select which department you want to help in. Interactions with patients can be fun. Patients are generally very grateful for your help, especially if you go out of the way to make them feel especially comfortable.

    Cons

    Nurses don't have a ton of work to give volunteers so it was pretty boring. It was very uncomfortable walking in to patient rooms unannounced and unaccompanied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organize specific activities and projects for volunteers.
