    Pros

    love the group of people I work with. House super is great with throughput.

    For profit hospital. Continuous lack of necessary supplies available, like sani wipes to start. Documentation system is a dinosaur, not progressive and extremely inefficient; so much room for error/safety issues.

    I have been working at Good Samaritan Hospital (San Jose) part-time

    Pros

    mostly a great place to work, the people are nice, great location, reverse commute for me so commuting is easy. Ample employee parking, quick to walk from parking to work.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive with other hospitals in the area for similar or identical positions. High turnover rate for many employee positions. Not enough opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees better, closer to market rates and you might have a better chance at retaining more of them.
