Co-workers were very engaging and supportive and it was a great place to work for.
IT Desktop Support Intern (Former Employee), Seattle WAFebruary 17, 2015
A typical day at work for me would be doing the daily task that consisted of 17 things, for example testing monitors, hot swap machines, check the printer to see if it had paper/toner etc. Attend a stand up meeting for about 10 to 15 minutes. After the meeting I would go to my desk and log on to my computer check to see how many tickets I have then start working on them. If no ticket I would click on the unassigned tickets then I would assign them to my queue. During the program I learned about the ticketing system/troubleshooting skills and great customer service skills.
The most enjoyable part of the job was to be able to go anywhere and assist customers. I went to the surgery rooms and pharmacy where I had to either swap a monitor or troubleshoot a downtime machine.

Volunteer as Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Seattle, WAAugust 10, 2014
Pros: free bus pass, bonus if ride the bus or walk to work
Cons: short breaks. not enough full times jobs
As a shuttle Driver a typical day at work will be get to work on time get my work place ready and check that everything is an order and nothing missing that I might need once I head the road. I learned that been actively involved and aware of my surroundings can greatly impact a day of work. if I use all the techniques and experienced that I had acquired at work I can assure a safe day and feel good about it. Having a safe day at work is always a priority for Seattle Children's Hospital and for myself as well. My co-workers are always there for me. They are very helpful and friendly. the hardest part of the job is traffic in rush hour; it is very difficult to keep up with the route schedule. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I feel great doing my job, I might not be working directly with patients but I am also helping to get kids better and that is very rewarding.

Patient Care driven medical professional with focus on Organizational Emergency Preparedness, Disaster Management, and Medical Error Prevention.
Nursing Supervisor, Emergency Department (Current Employee), Seattle, WAJune 18, 2014
Pros: ability to work 4 days a week
Cons: late evening hours
When I began nursing school, I always dreamed of working for Seattle Children's Hospital and I have had the honor of working there for over 14 years. I have loved seeing the Emergency Department grow and change with our patient need, but have recognized my desires to continue to grow myself professionally and see what other organizations can teach me.
I have the privilege to work in a job where I only have to work 3-4 days a week, but unfortunately the hardest part of my job is flipping myself from evening shift to day shift. In addition, working primarily evening shift, i have had limited contact with other departments. My biggest accomplishments working at SCH is that over the last few years, I have had the opportunity to develop our computer downtime process. I have helped develop a standardized process that all staff know what to do and have easy to follow jobaides to guide their work. I have lead our ED team to create an Emergency Preparedness plan and have lead quarterly drills in the department. Seeing our staff become more comfortable with these things, gives me a sense of joy and accomplishment.

Audio/Visual Intern (Former Employee), Seattle, WAApril 11, 2014
Pros: starbucks, great people, diversity.
Cons: short breaks
Get their and start evaluating emails and answering phone calls. I learned that they connect and have meeting through TV and it makes communication much easier. The management was great he was a great boss. If you had a question he was always opened to help out. My co-workers were awesome they were very commemorative each other. The hardest part of the job was not being able to solve the incident on my own. The most enjoyable was being able to see the kids smile when they are healthy and not in pain anymore.

Playroom Volunteer (Former Employee), Seattle, WAJanuary 20, 2014
Pros: helping patients, holding babies
Cons: some days were slow
I cleaned toys, books, movies, magazines, etc. I organized the playroom and set up activities for patients to do both inside and outside. I helped participate in sports with patients. I also went to individual patients rooms and talked with them and provided support for them and their families. The hardest part of my job was to talk to older kids who were struggling with their situations. The most enjoyable part of the job was holding babies and comforting them in their rooms and giving the parents and other staff a much needed break.
