Educational.

Medical Surgery Intern (Former Employee)

ProsExcellent leadership and encouragement to participate in interdisciplinary team proscess, including interns.

ConsPersonally, the wait for translators was time consuming and the wait interfered with the process of building a rapport with the patient.

Advice to Senior ManagementWeekly team meetings in order for Social Worker to stay on point and be cohesive in the objectives of the department. Former Med-Surg MSW Intern.

Great Job, so much experience to gain

Nurse (Current Employee)
Orange, CA

I have been working at UCI Medical Center full-time for more than a year

ProsI love the staff here. Most units get along with each other and help each other out. Teamwork is huge here, and we always are offering to help. There are many learning opportunities because this is a level one trauma center, especially in SICU. But for the most part, its a friendly environment with many resources.

ConsThe pay is low, but fairly competitive than hospitals around the area. There are politics and drama, but that's like any other job, especially in the hospital. Parking also is a pain because you pay 40 dollars for parking, which is 2 blocks away. A shuttle takes you, but sometimes you would have to wait 30 minutes just to get picked up from the shuttle.

Advice to Senior ManagementDepends on your unit manager, but some micromanage, but some don't. Just hope you are not in a unit that is micromanaged by your manager.

Great Experience...would recommend!

OSS Floor (Former Employee)
Orange, CA

I worked at UCI Medical Center part-time for less than a year

Pros-Very inviting atomosphere/people
-Diverse environment
-Free Snacks
-Ability to interact with patients
-Flexible hours
-May allow insight to explicit medical procedures (ask placement person to get you in the right direction if you are interested in a medical career, because they might place you in an area where you have a lot more interaction with doctors and other professionals)

Cons-Gets boring at times
-Feels like it's only for future medical students
-It's hard to meet other volunteers

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to get volunteers to bond/get to know each other more...might make it more rewarding!

a good place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Orange, CA

I worked at UCI Medical Center

Proshave good benefits and decent paid working in the hospital. the working hours are firm and you will be given clear directions to accomplish department objectives

Consthe structure is somehow loose sometimes the pace is too slow and the responsibilities are not clear defined so that you will need to work on wide range of different things at the same time

Advice to Senior Managementspecify the responsibilities of every position when recruiting new employees. It was a very good experience working in UCI medical center and I will definitely recommend others to work there in the future.
