I worked at University of Tennessee Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)
I enjoyed working at UT Hospital because it is a teaching hospital. Lots of opportunities to learn different skills related to the medical field. I enjoyed working in the ICU and learning about different procedures and using life saving equipment.
The times of not having enough staff for the shift you work is very stressful and is hard to work the 12 hour shift like I did for many years. I worked there for 25 years.
Advice to Management
Listen to the employees and especially the ones that have been employed with the hospital for years.
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Tennessee Medical Center (Knoxville, TN) in June 2016.
I was called for an interview and it had the standard questions. We also discussed pay and working hours. I got called several weeks later that I had an interview with a nursing manager and job shadowed. I ended up talking to two nursing managers that day and did a peer interview. After that a few more weeks pass and I get a call saying that I had a job offer from one of the managers and was scheduled for a drug screen, blood test, and signed some paperwork. It has been about three weeks since then and I know there was nothing on my bad on my screening, because I do not do those types of things. I tried emailing my recruiter without a response in a week. Orientation is in about 2 1/2 weeks. Should I be concerned?
