    I have been working at Holy Cross Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The reason why I can't write a lot for the pro is because it has went down hill after the past two years. So my pros are what's currently going on vs what pros have happen in the past . So currently speaking I Have the opportunity to work extra hours and make up your time or make over time.

    Cons

    I feel the company sometimes don't respect others and talk down to each other and over working the current employee they do have and can't appreciate them. Also feel as Under staff and not just my department but the whole hospital

    Advice to Management

    Treat others with respect
    Show those that do help out more appreciation
    Hire way more staff
    Allow Internal housekeepers opportunity to grow in the business

    Pros

    Great Benefits, medical, dental, paid time off, and working in transport you get to go anywhere in hospital freely and access to every where. not to many places where a page won't work.
