I have been working at Northwest Community Hospital/Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)
Worked there a long time, feels like family
Since doctors became employees, or so it seems, my department is suffering. Big turnover in a department that we are not used too and difficulty finding new hires because of call requirement and the location you must live in because of call. I have not had a raise in 4 years! Maxed out! Get a lump sum thats added to your regular pay so taxes take most of that. On call and work crazy amount of hours. NOT WORTH IT! Management comes around and look like they feel sorry for you but they really don't. They are making the money and I can't even make plans for my off time because we are so busy likely to work late no matter what. It's all abut the MD's and their "incentives" not about the real employees
Advice to Management
Pay your long term employees... the ones who have the experience that have made your doctors successful! Takes a team!
I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwest Community Hospital/Healthcare (Buffalo Grove, IL) in December 2017.
I applied to the company online though their website. In 3 weeks I received a phone call from the HR department to schedule an interview in person.
I had my first interview that same week with the HR representative and then another meeting with the unit floor manager I would be working for right after. We toured the unit and talked about my experiences in health care. I guess they have a process where the HR rep screens you out first and then approves you to go on to meet with the unit manager second.
Literally, the very next day, I got a call back from the HR department with a job offer and orientation date.
Everyone was very friendly and very informative. All of my questions were answered. The process was very smooth for me.
