    I have been working at Mercy Health System

    Pros

    Nothing. They are not truly looking for or giving a chance to well qualified individuals.

    Cons

    Online application and resume submission process locks up. Loses information and takes way to long to fill out. Literally 45 minutes after I submitted and application they send an automated "ding letter" that says "we carefully looked over your application and resume and at this time are...blah blah blah" Really. You looked over my resume/application and in 30-45 minutes of your CAREFUL review find that I am not a fit for the position that requires a minimum of a HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA. Thank you Mercy. Good luck.

    It was a transitionary step; there was a hiring freeze on full-time employees for the job that they hired me.

    I worked at Mercy Health System as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Providing patient care and a modicum of autonomy in which to do it were given here.

    Cons

    As a per diem employee getting cancelled for a shift--a mere ten minutes prior to that shift--was not uncommon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to all of your employees for feedback-not just administrators.

    Pros

    The work-life balance is pretty good. Pay is decent enough.

    Cons

    Benefits coming up next year are terrible. There's no accountability for some. Some of the practices don't match the core values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold management accountable for actions. More incentives for part-time and prn staff.

    Pros

    Work-life balance, benefits, allowed me to obtain my BS degree,

    Cons

    Jobs are consolidated frequently putting more work on individuals with no extra pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You spent a lot of money paying an outside agency to identify Talent within but never reviews internally to promote within.

    Pros

    The floor that I was on didn't have to float , that may be different now. It was a closed unit.

    Cons

    It was physically demanding. You had to work 8 hours days and every other weekend. Hard to get a decent raise in pay.

    Pros

    I love caring for people and the main thing you have a job.

    Cons

    There is no promotions there they work you to death and don't pay overtime instead you have to leave early and if and when you do leave early you might get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to look into HR. they should all be fired. They get rid of the best workers and don't care about PATIENT first.
