The latest conversations about Healthcare




Patient Care Technician

Healthcare jobs are not what they used to be. Mental illness is at an all time high and Covid are major factors. I tried switching to day shift this year from night shift for years and I don’t see how y’all do it. Caffeine is the most popular drug. I will be going back to nights where I belong. I wish y’all the best of luck!

    1. Wilderness Field Instructor Interview

      Anonymous Employee in United States
      Declined Offer
      Negative Experience
      Easy Interview

      I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Trails Carolina (United States)


      Interviewer seemed unprepared, and asked very few relevant follow up questions. It gave the impression that the bar for hiring was fairly low, which made me uneasy given the difficulty of this type of role.

      Be prepared to talk about overcoming student challenges in the outdoors.
