    I worked at San Joaquin Community Hospital full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing. I got to work with an incredible team & I had the support of management at every turn.

    Cons

    Some jobs are contracted out to different agencies. The workers from these companies would complain at length & loudly about the lack of compensation.

    Pros

    Flexible working with students and people with other jobs, good benefits if you can get enough hours to attain them.

    Cons

    Cannot depend on getting the hours you need, better to expect getting paid less than you need. When other companies come in to do surveys on the hospital, everyone is extremely emotional and snappish. You can meet both amazing people and horrible people, in terms of employees. The patients are normally very sweet, thats the best part of the job. If you're looking to go up, this is the wrong job, most people who cant stand the job are there going up 10-15 years, unlikely you'll get the position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The entire hospital needs to stop being cheap and actually hire enough people to run the hospital, maybe then there wouldn't be so much stress on management, and therefore the employees with CMS comes. The hospital prides itself on the fact that it can run with half the staff of other hospitals, yet they keep getting dinged for stupid stuff when the surveyers come. The employees work very hard to do what they can, they need more people.

    I have been working at San Joaquin Community Hospital

    Pros

    Family Oriented Organization, Faith based

    Cons

    It can be noted that promotions are more of who you know and are friends with then with qualifications. They have hired way too many nurses from foreign countries and being able to communicate is very important however it is increasingly being reported that the nurses are difficult to understand and talk in their native language in front of others regularly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look more into the abilities of those you hire into positions of authority and less on whom they might be friends with in management.
