    I worked at Avera McKennan Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Avera is a great place to work at. I received a great health care package. Avera has teach me great ways to expand my learning in the healthcare. I started off as a Housekeeper when I started and now I am a CNA.

    Cons

    They are very short handed and need help constantly. The only plus about that is that you get a lot of hours be you can become very sleepy and drain. You have to work at different sites to fill in.
     I have talked to new hires and some of them didn't even have a High School Diploma.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that want to work not because you need people. Doing a extent in people background.
