    I have been working at Swedish Covenant full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working with hospital staff and laboratory technicians is great. Everyone is very friendly and tries to be helpful. Lots of opportunities to interact with nurses and some doctors.

    Cons

    Hard to request days off. Requests get denied often. Scheduling conflicts happen often. co-workers often call off or are no shows. It puts more work and stress on the employees that do show up and work. NO OVERTIME ALLOTTED. Manager constantly dips into PTO hours, without proper notification. Weak upper management skills.

      I worked at Swedish Covenant

      Pros

      Having some great co-workers can make anyone stay in a position longer than they otherwise would. They frequently hire new graduate nurses and frequently have openings on specialty units. There are several new buildings on campus that look great.

      Cons

      Staff retention was a problem, which led to many other issues. I watched over 80 people come and go from my unit within a few years. Additionally, no retention efforts were instituted and upper management thought this was reasonable. Scheduling was unreliable, often coming out less than 1 week in advance, I had multiple vacation requests revoked after approval due to low staffing...
