    I have been working at UNC Health Care full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, time off is usually good depending on the unit, most shifts are flexible, the scheduling system is terrible; usually great teamwork in most places. They treat you really well if you are a solid and good employee.

    Cons

    They really don't have a good system for improvement or to help people when they need it. Standing out is hard and being a poor employee will yield little assistance but just keeping your head down and working hard is the best you should do.

    Advice to Management

    The system for scheduling is terrible, just terrible. Shift wizard was so much better. It would be nice if there was a better system to help employees with great track records if they've messed up. It would also help if it was standardized to get time off, some units you have to beg for time off but realistically you have to call out.

    I have been working at UNC Health Care full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good PTO, benefits, and competitive pay. Self scheduling of shifts is very convenient. OT is always available, but not required.

    Cons

    Parking is awful - you have to ride the bus from a Park and Ride, which you have to pay for. If you have an on campus permit, which are very expensive and require years on a waiting list, you still usually have to move your vehicle on game days.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Offer tuition reimbursement for nursing staff - other area hospitals are.

    Pros

    A company that values the patients and employees . The pay is good. They strive to be the number one healthcare hospital .

    The only con i have is employee parking at our main hospital. I think its way to expensive.

    I have been working at UNC Health Care part-time

    Pros

    The schedule for float pool is extremely flexible, you can make it your own. It is fun to see different units of the hospital and is great experience if you are looking to gain a wide variety of NA skills.

    Cons

    Your preferences for units aren't really taken into account as far as what floors you want to go to. They send you wherever there is a need.

    Advice to Management

    I wish I had more say as to what units I was sent to.

    Team work and change of managers too frequent. Prejudicial preferences.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at UNC Health Care full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are great and PTO is awsome with the amount that is given.

    Cons

    They give you a 9 month probation period. Any where else it is 90 days. Very unprofessional from top to bottom. It seem like everybody does just enough work not to get fired. And if you actually shine they try to boot you out the door. Not just management but your fellow co workers. Plus new employees come in making more than people thats been there for years.

    Advice to Management

    Managment needs to know what is going on the floor. Instead of acting like leaders. Lead by example at least know how to do the jobs the employees do. You can answer a lot more questions to your superiors that way.
