    I worked at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Challenging and educational experiences.

    Cons

    Very much corporate minded. If you don't fit the stereotype they have, you are left out and nudged or kicked out.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all your employees not just those that fit into the "in crowd"

    I have been working at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great hourly rate with plenty of OT and crisis pay

    Cons

    Mandatory OT, skimpy on the benefits

    Advice to Management

    Lots of holding leads to long wait times and ED nurses not being able to do what they do best.

    I worked at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people, home based, good salary and benefits.

    Cons

    I had no issues with the HIM Department at CFVMC. Nothing but good things to report.

    Advice to Management

    When transitioning out an entire section of a department, up-to-date information from the start should be given to the employees, as well as a severance package, as opposed to taking a position with an outsource company for a ridiculous wage decrease and known end result.

    I enjoyed the benefits afforded through self gratification by assisting patients in need.

    Cons

    Extremely political, very bias and unprofessional, lacks team management.

    Invest in your leaders so that they can be productive and successful.

    I worked at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Largest employer in the area. Good for friends and family to work within the same company.

    Cons

    It is a scary place to be. Anything goes....dirty medical equipment..heartless nurses....nonexistent management..absolute chaos. I have been a patient and an employee. I would not recommended being either if you can help it.

    Advice to Management

    Worry about patients and employees as much as you worry about compliance.

    I worked at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Insurance allowed free visit to emergency room. Only had to use it once but it was a good benefit.

    Cons

    Employee parking. During the day would not have been so bad, but for those that work at night, you have to walk at least a half mile in a poorly lit area in a not-so-great part of Fayetteville. You can get fired if you are caught with pepper spray or anything like that in your bag to defend yourself, and their answer to this is security escorts but this is awful. Multiple times myself and other coworkers requested security and had to wait about half an hour for them to show. They always had an attitude about it. One coworker requested an escort and was told "we can see you on the cameras, you are fine." This is unacceptable!

    Pay - hourly pay is minimum and you will not get a raise. Merit raises do not exist. The result is that a lot of employees do the bare minimum to get by, which is kind of scary in a facility that is supposed to save lives.

    Attitude - many employees are gossipy and have bad attitudes. I did make some friends while I was here, but I got tired of listening to everyone talk about each other behind their backs. Seemed like high school.

    No room for advancement - favoritism runs rampant. Management will approach employees when open positions become available and ask them to apply.

    Advice to Management

    I never intended for this to be permanent, but this was the worst job I ever had and I feel for those who do not have the option to just pack up and go. Morale was very low in multiple departments while I was here, and I never spoke with someone who was actually happy to be employed here. The hospital is constantly undergoing renovations of questionable necessity, perhaps you should take some of that money and allocate it towards the health and happiness of your employees. A safe place to park would be a great start.


  9. "RN"

    I have been working at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    comprehensive benefits, cheap benefits, employee discounts

    Cons

    patient acuity and high patient nurse ration

    Advice to Management

    decrease nurse to patient ratio and listen to your nurses, increase pay and add real incentives to retain nurses instead of hiring so many travel nurses
