    Former Employee - Nursing Support Assistant 

    I worked at University of Chicago Hospital part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Salary, Over - time, 12- hour shifts, using API to make your own schedule.

    Cons

    Understaffed - your days selected in API can’t always be approved because of the short staffing; laziness of some staff members - they are only there for a paycheck rather than patient care

    Advice to Management

    Get managers that aren’t there for only bonuses. The unit and staff needs support.
