I worked at WakeMed Health and Hospitals full-time
Great people to work with
Very slow to change, missing opportunities
Advice to Management
Invest in Middle Management, they are the backbone of the organization.
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at WakeMed Health and Hospitals (West Raleigh, NC) in December 2016.
I applied online through the website and was called in for an interview, the interview was very basic, she explained the different duties, the code of conduct and the various things about the department specifically. I got to also shadow a current employee on the floor to get to know the department more. It was a good process
