I worked at Hilo Medical Center full-time
The hospital is filled with warm, friendly people. Most try to make your day enjoyable. Lunch and cafe prices are very affordable. Regular special events add to the fun. A hospital run by nurses.
This place is in transition, and depending on which department you're in, you may experience a lot of turmoil. Some of the older doctors are very disruptive to the overall functioning of the facility, as they have attitudes, refuse to adapt to technology, and some still act like gods.
Advice to Management
Need new blood. Recruit more physicians so that current physicians have less power. Don't let the family vibe slip away.
I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hilo Medical Center (Hilo, HI) in August 2012.
The job interview process was with 3 persons, the ITIT manager, IT supervisor, and the nursing manager. Each had three questions. While telling them about my past work experience and education they were impressed that they had HR rush my paperwork. In less than 2 weeks I was called in for an orientation and started in the department the next day. I was also given a few tickets on my first day, in which another employee stated that she never got a ticket until her three month position was over.
