I worked at Cary Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)
The co-workers are great people dedicated to their professions. They desire to provide excellent patient care. They are thankful just to have jobs.
Direct manager has know idea what the front-line workers actually do! Management is generally indifferent to workflow improvement suggestions. Management doesn't solicit input from the front-line workers for ANYTHING. Management is unconcerned with staff development and promotion. Instead of adopting a modern intra-departmental style, management is developing a silo-mentality. Pay/hours keep going backwards. People say they are making LESS than when they started. They regret buying houses in the area. Now they are stuck! Great potential but, after six years, very disappointing. Enough is enough!
Advice to Management
Hire a manager with a background in the specific field of expertise. Management needs to learn how to develop and promote staff - not just throw bones to the brown-noses. Management needs to follow their own advice. Keep your head up. Smile and greet EVERYONE you meet in the hallways. Actually listen to complaints along with the suggestions for improvement.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cary Medical Center (Caribou, ME).
The interview process went well. 5-Star in execution. Staff members were warm and friendly during the facility tour. Potential career paths were discussed. Personal professional growth was discussed. The manager actually conducted the nickel-tour!
Here's the offer. Having no other prospects, I accepted.
