    I worked at San Joaquin General Hospital full-time

    Pros

    The retirement plan is supposedly decent, but doesn't seem worth the time needed to spend there to attain it.

    Cons

    San Joaquin General Hospital is without hyperbole the worst place I have ever worked. The problems start from the top, with admin demonstrating a serious lack of management skills. The administrators frequently acknowledge their tendency to react to problems rather than anticipate them, but never show any intention to change their approach. As a result, they are always acting in "crisis mode". As a result, the... hospital environment is forever toxic. Gossip openly runs through the hospital halls, as department heads feud with one another. There's not much of a sense of camaraderie within departments, either, as hierarchy mixed with insecurity and egos lead people to try to cannibalize their own. The human resources department is a joke, explicitly more interested in defending the hospital than the employees that are openly being abused. Expect to work beyond your shift hours without pay compensation. Expect to miss out on breaks because the floors are persistently short-staffed. Expect to be faced with everyone's negativity. Expect that when any adverse outcomes happen, for administration to clear themselves of enabling the workplace that allowed enabled it -- rather, it's YOUR fault for whatever reason they come up with. Avoid, avoid, avoid. If you find yourself with a contract offer from this hospital, do yourself a favor and look for anything else. You legitimately would be better off unemployed.
