    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Children's Hospital Of The King's Daughters part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've had a raise every year and besides from the fact that the cost of the medical insurance for a part time employee is over $100 a payday, the benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    CHKD is very strict on time and attendance. As a part time employee you can not have more than one occurrence or more than one tardy in a 3 month rolling period with a disciplinary action.

    Advice to Management

    You should speak to the higher ups about the attendance policy, it is too strict and things happen sometimes. You shouldn't lose/fire great employees because things happen sometimes outside of our control.
