    I worked at St. Vincent's Hospital full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's in the largest city of Alabama. That's the only pro.

    Cons

    Not required to be certified or go to school for a degree in Alabama. Pay is low compared to the rest of the country. Very behind the times compared to how other ORs are run. Everyone is paid close to the same regardless of experience. There is only 1 level for surgical techs. There is no way to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff re: what the ORs need to run smoothly. Create a clinical ladder so employees can move up the ranks that include pay increases for more responsibility and give employees the initiative to work harder and stay.
