      Pros

      Payroll deduction for car insurance

      Cons

      There is no cohesiveness among staff. Pettiness and clicks are evident. There is a BIG LACK OF COMMUNICATION. The pay is ridiculous 11.18 thats if you're an emt, ma, first responder for nights and shift diff. You may get close to 11.30. So dont worry about the experience you may have. The 11.18 is across the board. Other hospitals i interviewed with laughed and shook their heads at the pay. A break doesn't exists just eat when you can. Always short staffed. Felt bad for nurses and paramedics at times. The manager over everyone never knew what was going on half of the time. She was more worried about what she can catch you doing instead of asking what can help to fix a issue. No moral what so ever.

      Pros

      Level 1 trauma nursing experience

      Cons

      High Nurse to patient ratio with high acuity patients, Management doesn’t step in to help, Always short staffed, they expect you to come in on the day of a funeral(literally they didn’t understand why I couldnt), parking is awful and unsafe at that ……………… not to mention their security guards are not even armed! So, that doesn’t help with any of the safety issues/concerns. I could go on and on,but you get the point......

      I've enjoyed the floor I've been on since I got here. My co-workers have been experienced and pleasant to work with.

      Pros

      You can make your own work schedule good discounts from other companies and they do payroll deduction.

      Cons

      Short staffed the majority of the time. They do not offer any incentives to patient care technicians at all like they do for the nurses. They company does not respect the PCT and all that they do. The nurses look down on the PCT"s and have no respect for them.
