    Pros

    Guaranteed 40 hours of work per week. Schedule was pretty much permanent. 8am-5pm

    Cons

    Employees are very territorial, clickish, and not team players. Management is a joke they seem to only be there for the paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Find another job that you like and give this Community a chance to prosper.

    I worked at Gila River Indian Community full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay. Indian tacos. Nice people.

    Cons

    No EOE required for the tribe. The tribal politics seam to affect a lot of the aspects of the job. Sacaton where the tribal government and most of the tribal buildings are is not convenient to anything.

    I have been working at Gila River Indian Community full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Insurance benefits are awesome, the hours aren't bad, the people are wonderful (coworkers, not management), the pay is good considering you're working in the middle of nowhere.

    Cons

    The Health and Social Standing Committee is running the show, not the Tribal Council like it should be. This is unfortunate.

    Advice to Management

    Dissolve the Health and Social Standing Committee and give control back to the Community. Tribal Council should be in charge.

    Pros

    I loved my job working among the Indians of the
    TOHONO O'ODUM Tribe. This position was the most rewarding position I have held in all 17 years of nursing.

    Cons

    I have no cons. Working for Gila River, the CNO, my fellow co workers and my director were awesome. I just wish I could have stayed, but my family need at home now and I need to return home. My husband died in February and I have no one here in Arizona that is family so therefore, it is time to return home and to a different realm of nursing.

    Advice to Management

    Visit your Public Health Nurses more often. Understand that so many of our nurses that work in the field are faced with many obstacles and despair when we work so hard to help those patients that need us so desperately. Recognize that we give 110% to our patients and are genuinely compassionate and giving of themselves to help others
