I worked at JFK Medical Center (More than a year)
Great place to work, great staff, flexible scheduling. I would recommend to a friend. Benefits are amazing!
Rewarding and satisfying career working in a hospital
Having a positive impact on patients' lives
Job stability, which is not impacted by a recession
Working in a team environment with other healthcare workers, including MDs, phlebotomists, respiratory therapists, and more
Good salary, which is dependent upon the specific facility and job title. Hospital nurses usually earn a higher salary than in a private office or other ancillary facility
Healthcare benefits are usually offered, based on the individual facility
Stimulating environment, which is non-stop, around-the-clock
Exposure to germs being around many sick people
Sometimes the parking options are competitive, especially in large urban areas. Staff is usually offered satellite parking because patient-only parking is often adjacent to the hospital
Frustration when patients do not get better. It is difficult to watch patients struggle or die in the hospital
Hospital work requires 24/7/365 coverage, which includes weekends and holidays, not typical “office hours.” The expansive hours must be fully covered in order to deliver safe and efficient patient care throughout the hospital
Exposure to unruly patients (anger, intoxication, belligerent, loud, physically reactive) in the workplace can create a difficult environment
The unknown factor about what or who will be a patient can make some jobs unpredictable, which can increase the stress factor
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at JFK Medical Center.
Brief interview.. only got asked to talk about myself and my resume. Was referred by a current employee, they are always looking to hire. Met with HR and then supervisor, discussed my knowledge and experience and was offered the job.
