    I have been working at Blount Memorial Hospital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Co-workers are fun and make the day go by easier. Close to home. Love working with my patients. Flexible work hours depending on which department you are assigned

    Cons

    Middle and upper management attitude toward employees is similar to “parents” to misbehaving children. Took some “management training” classes through HR. Was shocked at the attitude of those I met. It’s all about writing employees up and documenting on your “problem” employees.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your employees are adults and educated professionals. We would not be here if we did not care for those people we come in contact with everyday. MOST of us have solid values and good work ethic. If you have someone that doesn’t, educate them not the rest of us!

    I have been working at Blount Memorial Hospital full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Close to home, if you live in Maryville. Getting to know the residents. Free breakfast & lunch.

    Cons

    Administration is very nice, but very clueless as to what actually goes on between dining staff and kitchen staff employees. Employees CONSTANTLY talk about one another behind their backs. Most come into work with a terrible attitude and it's a struggle to remain cheery with their constant sneering and backhanded comments. Some are even incredibly rude to the residents - it's embarrassing! Apparently most employees...

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like people, not just numbers. Speak to employees about issues directly, DO NOT rely on the word of untrustworthy co-workers. This place would be a great place to work if not for the middle school gossip that goes on CONSTANTLY.

    Pros

    The hospital is close to home in a small community. Fairly personable staff. You get to know people and work as a team.

    Cons

    Some days are stressful when staffing issues arise. It's difficult to take extra patients in your team unexpectedly. Team leaders (depending on work ethic) may not be helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Be more hands on instead of sending emails to relay messages

    I worked at Blount Memorial Hospital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    In recent years, not many pros. If you live in Maryville, it is close to home, that's about it.

    Cons

    The hospital has really changed over the years. Not a good environment to work in. Leadership at the hospital doesn't really care about employees and it shows. I have never seen the turnover so high or employee satisfaction so low. The hospital spends money on new programs but nothing changes. Why? Because the leadership do not really have their heart in it. They only want to improve patient satisfaction so they don't...

    Advice to Management

    Replace all leadership and bring in people who really have a heart and care about people. It isn't rocket science, but some leadership do not adequately support or appreciate their staff. They are only out for themselves and to be sure they look good.
