I have been working at HCA Virginia full-time (More than a year)
Great staff to work with, flexible hours for family life, pay is good
Not enough ability for education or advancement. Experienced employees should get paid more especially when promoted, shouldn't be base, bottom of the line pay. Many companies pay for company holidays since the business is closed. Here you have to use your person PTO which you only earn like 6 hours per pay day. Before you can take a day off for yourself or family, you have to use your PTO for a holiday (depending on the time of year). Training needs to be better as well.
Advice to Management
Upper management needs to hold weekly or at least monthly huddle meetings. Communication means everything. Get to know your employees and show them the value they hold and that they are not just a number. Please find a way to look at patients as more than a head count or goal to meet. Allow the doctors to provide them the care they need without focusing on so many appointments per day. Patients wait an hour to be seen and visit lasts 5 minutes. Recognition needs to be better. It is so hard to be recognized for anything. It takes an act of Congress to get a $25 gift card for a PRIDE award. For an award that is such a big deal, make the amount larger - $100, $250 (like other businesses). These folks work so hard to take care of our patients and our fellow staff so they deserve more than a small gift card (but that's just my opinion)
I applied online. I interviewed at HCA Virginia (Richmond, VA) in October 2016.
I applied online within 90 days of graduating (in September) from nursing school. I received a phone call a few days after I applied for the position and had an interview scheduled for about 3 weeks after I talked to the recruiter. I received an offer about 5 days after the interview.
