I worked at Saint Clare's Hospital full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – Great people, made lifetime friends.
Chance to be exposed to many important experiences and technologies.
Cons – - Perpetually on the edge of financial doom
- Poor leadership with a lot of petty politics.
- Uncertain future due to its owner looking to sell it (even after having bought it a few years ago)
Advice to Senior Management – Stabilize the ship and never forget that your people really make the difference.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Saint Clare's Hospital part-time for more than 3 years
Pros – It's good to put on your resume if you're in high school/college. You learn (from experience) about how to deal with hospital visitors, patients, hospital procedures, and outside contractors (ex. funeral home directors, security, etc).
Volunteers can get a $5 meal voucher at the cafeteria or cafe, so that's a plus.
When you accumulate enough volunteer hours, you get volunteer pins, so that's a nice little thank you reward!
St. Clare's is keen on yearly medical procedure review sessions, so that's good as a quick refresher.
Cons – It can be very boring working at the Front desk as a volunteer. A lot of the time, there will be very few visitors coming in or no courier jobs needing completion for hospital staff. It's easily fixed by doing homework or reading a book.
Also, if you're looking to really enter the medical field, this isn't really to right volunteer work for you. You're better off just shadowing a doctor.
There's also a lot of volunteers just like you, so you might have some difficulty if you're trying to acquire more hours. They even put 3 volunteers at the front desk on weekends for a 2 hour shift because there's just so many volunteers!
Advice to Senior Management – Volunteer coordinator are pretty strict about professional appearance. You must wear the official blue volunteer shirt (or whatever color they have at the moment) and your lanyard and badge. No eating or playing music at the front desk in order to give off a professional air to visitors.

I have been working at Saint Clare's Hospital
Pros – PTO accrual is good, thats about it
Cons – Managment has no control on anything. Pay sucks. Benefits are worse than any other job i had.
Advice to Senior Management – Raise salary to compare to other hospitals, maybe then you will see good productivity from all
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
