    I worked at Del Amo Hospital full-time

    Pros

    4 days counts as full time at this facility so you qualify for all benefits.

    Cons

    The new CEO Steve came in with an objective. The Hospital is trying to blame him for their incompetence, but in reality, he is exploiting all of the laziness in administration. People in prominent positions were too comfortable. Favoritism runs rampant in this facility. Nothing seems to be done logically. On top of that, the workers are very underpaid. I felt sorry for the Psychiatric Assistants there. That position is a double edged sword!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the rotting lot. Way to complacent. Out with the old, in with the new.

    Great supervisors and social workers. Social workers and therapists are very supportive and knowledge.

    I worked at Del Amo Hospital part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Claims that they have a low staff turnover. I don't know if that's true. You get good PTOs. You may get recognized and get promotion, but after if you work there for a year or more, which is typical. I think you can grow with this company.

    Cons

    The pay is "okay". For interns and per diems, interns do not get paid, per diems/temps get paid low i think and they can end your assignment without a 2week notice, per diems/temps do not get benefits. also their location is not near any freeways.

    Advice to Management

    recognize your staff more

    Pros

    Feels like a big family

    Cons

    underpaid and understaffed compared to industry standard. Very disrespectful management staff

    Advice to Management

    Do yourself and your staff a favor. Resign. You have double standards, unethical and play favorites. Much of what goes on as far as management decisions based on emotion and not team lead common sense decision. Seem to reward incompetence. Management felt giving a "gift" if allowed to take time off (21 days per year including, sick days, holidays and "flex days" which are days we were asked to go home and use PTO even for those of us who had worked there for over a decade. Upper management could do what they wanted however) expected to work long hours in management positions with little or no recognition and informed, "management should not expect pats on the back". Strongarmed in to giving money for events, charity, parties and to attend numerous events called "service excellence" Other managers afraid to speak up as would be painted as "trouble makers" and thus be shunned and eventually pushed out.
