Occupational Therapist

I’m a fairly new grad. Got licensed in January and started working in February. I moved across the state for this job taking my family with me. Now 4 months in it’s such a toxic environment. Unethical, unhealthy. I’m looking to apply to other places. Do I put this company on my resume to show I’ve been working since I graduated or is it worse to show I want to leave after only 4 months? Also, absolutely cannot have them contact my current job or use them as a reference. Put them or no?

    Extremely unsafe at times

    May 2, 2022 - Registered Nurse in Buffalo, NY

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The teamwork and teaching are generally excellent. It's a sprawling hospital with multiple clinics, specialties and floors. There's room to find your niche.

    Cons

    Understaffing is constant. Sometimes to dangerous levels. There are no aides or phlebotomy for the vast majority of shifts. Extremely reactive in addressing issues. They are just now negotiating for retention bonuses.

    So many 1:1

    Apr 29, 2022 - Aide in Buffalo, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn if you are eager to. There are a lot of different patient diagnoses throughout the hospital and if you want to learn, there is usually someone willing to teach you about something.

    Cons

    Short staffing, frequent 1:1 assignments with sometimes unpredictable/unsafe patients and little training on how to interact. Little autonomy, techs and aides are not used to full abilities.

    Pros

    Great health benefits, easy drive in, free parking

    Cons

    A building run by people who get overpaid, and do not care about the employees, as they are just numbers. A building that all issues never come to light because they have working relationships with all news outlets. But don't worry, when there is an major issue you'll get a pizza party and a tshirt.
