I worked at St. Helena Hospital full-time (More than a year)
Positive work environment, great coworkers who are generally supportive of each other, good benefits, flexible schedule, beautiful Napa valley views from the hospital,
Management is sometimes impersonal with staff and provide poor feedback on performance for raises; the pay could be better considering the cost of living around the hospital is very expensive, many employees commute from 45min to over an hour away
Advice to Management
To begin taking the time to learn someone’s name after a few years would also be a nice touch. Also evaluating employee performance on the floor is very important and over the years the evaluations I received felt much like a formality with little useful feedback for improving on a day to day basis. it can be difficult to know how to improve or work towards a raise when you don’t get feedback that is specific to your performance. I know the manager does not spend a lot of time personally on the floor but speaking with charge nurses or taking a look at charting to get more information about performance before doing an evaluation could go a long ways.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at St. Helena Hospital (Saint Helena, CA) in May 2015.
Interviewed with hiring director prior to final approval for position. I had initial interview before the position description was finalized. After about a month of waiting, the position description was finalized and I was offered the job.
