I have been working at Georgetown University Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)
Medstar GUH has a great benefits program with affordable insurance options. Working at the hospital, you have plenty of opportunity to grow and promote to new positions. They do a great job offering additional training courses to make sure you feel comfortable with your position. The HR department is also very friendly, helpful, and responsive.
Experience will be different for everyone depending on the department you're working in and who's in charge. The first department I worked in was one of the busiest and most stressful, however, I knew I could always go to my supervisor or administrator for help. They were always willing to assist you and make sure you're doing okay. The current department I work in is much slower paced, but I feel very disconnected with my supervisor and administrator. They are not always responsive or helpful so I have to do my best to train myself on new skills almost every day. (Which can be a good thing). Overall, medstar GUH is a great place to work, just depends on the department.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Georgetown University Hospital (Washington, DC).
Intimidation is a big thing there. The job descriptions never matches the actual job functions that you'll be doing. And your job duties changes daily. No one really has a solid answer as to what exactly it is that you do
