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

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Woodbridge, VA

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

ConsHigh 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 Senior ManagementEnforce policies, treat staff fairly and recognize the people who do well.

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

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

Great… Cons: Nurses don't have a ton of work to give volunteers so it was… Advice to Senior Management: Organize specific activities and projects for volunteers. Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More

    I will look for a healthcare company to values ALL of their employees!

    Nursing Care Partner (Former Employee)
    Norfolk, VA

    I worked at Sentara Healthcare part-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Decent healthcare benefits, largest employer to work for, many locations. Cons: Policies are enforced based on the employee's relationship with management,… Advice to Senior Management: Many female employees = Many possible pregnant employees. I think the policies regarding who qualifies for FMLA, MEDICAL LEAVE, SHORT-TERM DISABILITY need to be… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
