    Certified Medical Assistant (Current Employee) Newport News, VA

    The good, the bad, and the ugly

    Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) Moreno Valley, CA

    ProsMany years of great experience.

    ConsBack stabbers and lazy employees disinterested in patient care- just a paycheck. To each his own within each department... where is the teamwork??? What is accountability?

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange... for the better of the team and ultimately the patients... not just for one person, especially not just yourself.

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

    Not what I was expecting.

    ConsManagement, rude co-workers, horrible pay

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees as an actual human being.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Tired of feeling like a number. They take overworked and underpayed to a new level!!!!

    Registered Nurse (Former Employee) Newport News, VA

    ProsMajority of staff in whole hospital nice. Some ICU and a lot of OR staff not so nice. Endoscopy staff is awesome!!! Really only pro to this hospital is putting on your résumé that you worked here because it is a trauma facility.....Whoopdie do!!!!

    ConsThey say pay here is competitive.....WRONG!!! Mary Immaculate and Sentara Careplex pay 4-5 bucks more/hr. The call schedule is awful in the Endoscopy Dept and not everyone in dept takes call. Not fair!!! Why should FT staff get screwed while PT staff doesn't have to do it??

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet more involved with staff complaints, stand up for you staff with making sure everyone in department takes call, not just certain employees. FT employees shouldn't be overworked with taking call, PT employees should help with call as well.

    It is a very rewarding experience being able to float between the different offices.

    Office Associate- Float Pool (Current Employee) Newport News, VA

    ProsIt challenges me daily, due to each office performs the same functions differently. I am able to receive a taste of the different medical fields available on the chance a permanent position becomes available.

    ConsI am not guaranteed 40 hrs a week and the travel can become tedious. I am uncomfortable not knowing the protocols for the office and fear of making mistakes causes me much turmoil.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey are understanding and support the float staff. I am happy with their management.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not what I thought it would be.

    Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) Newport News, VA

    ProsGood hospital to learn in. In general doctors & staff are pleasant to deal with.

    ConsManagement does not care. Confidentiality is an issue. Lowest salaries in the area. Religions & races are not treated equally.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook after the employees that work hard for you. Don't allow favorites to be played.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
