    I have been working at Abington Memorial Hospital part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The hospital is clean, the staff is surface-friendly, the CA pay is exceptional compared to other hospitals, and as a float pool CA, I'm always able to pick up extra shifts.

    Cons

    Extremely short staffed with nurses in every department. You may go weeks without working on the floor because the hospital needs you to watch patients on suicide or safety precautions.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more nurses. That truly does affect the entire flow of a department. If the nurses are spread thin and stressed out, they have limited patience for clients or anyone else. I have witnessed nurses throw things at one another out of anger, get berated by a patient's family because she can't get a box of tissue right now because her other patient is 5 seconds away from a rapid response, and skipping breakfast, lunch, and dinner because there is simply no one to cover for a 15 minute break.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Abington Memorial Hospital (Abington, PA).

    Interview

    I first met with HR, then met with someone in the department, then met with the manager of the department. The HR portion was challenging for me as this was my first interview in about 8 years. I answered as best I could, but probably gave a little too much information.
