  2. "Junior Volunteer"

    I worked at Sharp HealthCare part-time

    Pros

    As a high schooler who originally planned on pursuing the medical field, I enjoyed this volunteering opportunity and still talk about it years later. While most of your duties as a junior volunteer will be front desk activities, it was still a great experience to interact with patients and their families. My school didn’t require volunteering hours, but I gladly did it anyways.

    Cons

    A tip for volunteers - be sure to be consistent with hours. They don’t want you to miss any shifts unless you are sick.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits. Sharp invests in its leaders with quarterly leadership development sessions.

    Cons

    ILV policy is abused by many employees. HR seems afraid to touch these people even when many people are absent outside the parameters of their Dr.s ILV. Operations suffers greatly when these people are absent and there are no replacements for them when they are out.

    I have been working at Sharp HealthCare part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -We have a saying here, “best place to work, practice medicine, and receive care.”
    -lots of support staff
    -safer environment
    -great coworkers
    -great managers

    Cons

    -pay is still way less then San Diego living standards
    -partly because they need to pay the support staff (more CNAs, rapid response team) great pluses to the team
    -still gets busy and stressful

    Advice to Management

    Fight for better pay, we are already giving the best care we can give, I still want it to be the best place to work, but many people are leaving for the need to pay a mortgage in San Diego.

    I have been working at Sharp HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I got hired as a new grad registered nurse and was trained very thoroughly by very compassionate and knowledgeable staff members. High acuity patients lead to all kinds of different patient situations where I gained a lot of nursing skills. Also, we have "premium pay" shifts at times which equates to double-time/double-pay

    Cons

    Not the best hourly pay & benefits in comparison to other nearby hospitals. We do not get a pension but do get 401k & 403b. Health benefits aren't included as they are with other nearby hospitals

    Pros

    I have nothing GOOD to SAY

    Cons

    Upper management needs a RECALL

    Advice to Management

    QUALITY is more important than QUANTITY! Don't forget....if it wasn't for the patients you wouldn't have JOBS. Treat others they way you want to be treated. Not as an ADHERENCE

    Advice to Management

    None. Other than to comment that since leaving Sharp, I worked at another healthcare company and let's just say, you've set the bar high! I have since left that company and currently, working as a freelancer. Ive used what I have learned - exceptional quality of service and standards - from Sharp with everything that I do, professionally and personally. Thank you for the memories...the lessons...and foundation to which I nurture and grow from. All the best to everybody at Sharp! All the best Mr. Murphy with your upcoming retirement (I was still there when this was announced) -- who ever your replacement is, I hope that he/she has the same shoe size as you because they have some big shoes to fill. You will always be Sharp! I will always be Sharp!
