    I have been working at St. Joseph Medical Center part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are good, great co-workers to be with, Mission and Vision statement is a basis to follow

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement. No support from Administration for the employees. Administration is never seen nor do the employees know their names. The Administrators do not follow the Mission and Vision statement. Staffing is at a critical level in a number of departments which does not deliver good, safe patient care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees especially the April 2014 Employee Satisfaction Survey. The employee moral is critically low which is not good for patient care. Start having the Quarterly TownHall meeting again and truly listen to the employees' comments and take action keeping all informed of the progress.

  6.  

    I worked at St. Joseph Medical Center full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It's the skilled and talented professionals who make this an incredible place to come to for medical care. Keep St. Joseph in mind when you need quality healthcare.

    Cons

    Watching the dedicated staff walk off into retirement; missing their years of knowledge and leadership - but leaving an opportunity for those who come behind them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share your thoughts, vision, and plans at every opportunity - both inside and outside the house.

    I worked at St. Joseph Medical Center full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked at St. josephs hospital cleaning patient rooms I enjoyed meeting the elderly people and it was generally good employees to work with. I meet some good friends that I stay in contact with to this day.

    Cons

    Saint Josephs hospital advertises that they will pay you a certain amount of money based on reviews. One employee was there for twenty three years and did not reach the highest pay. You only get one holiday off a year and worked every other weekend. This is a job that ask a lot but offers little in return I made under eight fifty an hour. You have to run a buffer in patients rooms and there is a lot of work on one person. They gave us a pager and it was blowing up with calls and you where often approached at lunch breaks and told to stop eating to go clean something.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    These cleaning people should be paid like a doctor! give them at least ten dollars and hour. And treat them like human beings. Maybe you wont have such a high turn over if you hire enough workers instead of asking to much for nothing .

    Pros

    People are friendly. Pay is not bad. Pretty happy overall with the new job, but management was not upfront about everything in the interview. They're willing to work with you, but you have to stand up for yourself and push them a little bit to get it done. I like that they give you a lot of freedom and independence to do your work the way you feel is right, but they also have good procedures in place to guide you in the right direction as well.

    Cons

    The layoffs and financial worries created some drama, because again, management wasn't upfront about it and therefore rumors were flying around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more truthful and upfront in interviews and increase communication to decrease negativity
