    I have been working at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated Staff, willing to learn, respectful and kind. We are all in this rewarding and often tough environment together. I am humbled by the responsibility and sometimes worried if I've been a good enough leader during these 6 years. I love my job.
    Please let me know how your experience with us went. If anyone wants to tell me what they think about our people and our service, please call the general number and ask for my assistant. If I'm free, I will speak to you. I might ask one of my colleagues to follow up, but I'll listen to the pros and cons of your experience. And you don't have to tell me who you are, if your shy.

    Cons

    All organizations have bad days, all workers, management and physicians forget on occasion that our patients and their loved ones are often frightened and worried. Sometimes we don't respond in a respectful and kind way. It happens and it is wrong. We are Wyckoff and we always do our best, always respect and always lead with kindness. When we don't and it does happen. When it does we've failed ourselves and our promise as a community hospital. We are a no knucklehead workplace environment. Its hard to be a healthcare and services system in New York and harder still to be a community hospital that is a safety net organization.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, really listen. Bring your smile and good graces to work everyday. Live by the Golden rule. Respectful always and lead with Kindness.

    I worked at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    After applying for the HR position. I received an email to confirm for an interview. Never did I receive a phone call to verify if that time even work for me. They sent me an email to come in on a Monday at 3 p.m. for an interview. Never once did they call me to see if that time you can work for me. I wasn't given an option I was just told to confirm for the interview. Very impersonal and inconveniencing. When I arrive there there was no parking because obviously the interview was for 3 p.m. . With the frustration of not of not being able to find parking. I decided to cancel my interview and just leave. Really bad taste in my mouth... bad experience.

    Cons

    No parking. Parking lot is for Dr's only. And the starting salary for an HR Assistant is pretty low.

    Advice to Management

    Less impersonal. More professional. Learnto communicate, and work with the candidate. It's not always about you'r needs.

    Pros

    Coworkers are very nice and caring.

    Communication among departments is messy. Layoffs very often.

  7. "Management at WIC needs to improve"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Good to start and get experience
    Staff (clerical staff and nutritionists) are helpful and always willing to train new people

    Cons

    Too much micromanagement- 3 supervisors who are hovering over you all day
    Management is always asking for presentations to be done last minute
    No room for growth
    Management assigns staff to do special events (ex: 5 year old graduation) to impress the higher management (State) and gives no money to spend. All the money has to come out of pocket from the staff.

    Advice to Management

    If you ask your staff for a suggestion be open to new ideas don't turn them down. Appreciate your staff they will do more for you in return.

    You get excellent experience when the real good management were there for 2015-2016 👎🏻GARBAGE, pay decent, it's a learning hospital. I love what I did

    Cons

    Management and employees are very unprofessional. Management always make you feel like you have to pray daily not to get fired. Very unorganized, rules are made after you get yourself written up.

    Advice to Management

    They need to be humble and caring. Be more human. Treat others as they would like others to treat them. If they a Zero - to rate them I would Rate Wyckoff a Zero - 👎🏻
