    Former Employee - Human Resources

    I worked at Tampa General Hospital full-time

    Pros

    There are some great people that work at a TGH, it’s just a shame that employees have to work so hard to get in the door only to be treated poorly. Great tuition reimbursement program.

    Cons

    Parking lots are unpaved and overcrowded. Very cocky, almost snobby marketing: “We are the best of the best”. Low wages, high cost health insurance, charges employees to park on sight. Leadership uses the good ole boy system, lack of advancement. Limited presence in community, they would rather fund projects that can bring big press. Unrealistic work expectations from leadership. 30+ general employees report to director that is tied up in meetings all the time. Classism in workplace. If you are in a hourly, non-nursing role, you are treated like and paid garbage. Boasts child care onsite, but the waitlist is never ending. Poor shuttle system adds 90+ minutes to your long day. Outdated work processes mixed with new and innovative technology. The only way in the TGH door is to take a pay cut, accept a grunt position and hope after 5+ years, maybe management will promote you instead of bringing in an out of state new hire. Human Resources Department is dysfunctional at best and looks for reasons to write up employees.

    Current Employee - Patient Transporter in Tampa, FL
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Tampa General Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    benefits, sometimes they give you meal tickets to the cafeteria.

    Cons

    nurses and doctors abuse patient transporters and will treat you like a second class citizen, TGH loves there doctors and nurses and will say it 100 times over, but supporting departments (environmental services, patient transport, dietary) gets no love and gets verbal abuse from nurses and they treat you like your expendable and worthless. the pay is garbage for supporting departments (but better believe they take care of their nurses and doctors!) if you're not coming in here with a degree, don't come at all. The things they will do to you will not be worth the low pay they give.
