I have been working at Eastern Maine Medical Center (Less than a year)
EMMC is a great place to work. There is a lot of room to move up within the company, and you feel like a part of the family. EMMC treats their employees well, with tuition reimbursement programs, and good benefits.
EMMC is a large facility. As with any healthcare facility it can be difficult to get in touch with the right people, the health insurance could be better.
Advice to Management
Management at EMMC does a great job. If I had to make a recommendation, it would be to get to know each of your employees as an individual and not another face.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Eastern Maine Medical Center in March 2012.
Applied in January, received a call for an interview February vacation, but didn't interview until early March. This was 1-on-1 with a nurse recruiter in HR, had a second interview with the practice and office managers, and finally with one of the physicians, a nurse, and the overall practice manager. By the time all was said and done, it was close to the middle of April before I was officially hired. This process seemed to be a bit slow for a simple staff nurse position.
No negotiation, as salary was set (union hospital).
