Good Work, when things are actually Coordinated...
Alaris Medical Device Technician (Former Employee) – Varies based on Hospital – 16 July 2018
As the work tends to be going to hospitals to work with their Med-Tech department running preventative maintenance on their devices, the work itself isn't difficult, just time consuming and somewhat repetitive.
The problems come into play due to the nature of the work; lots of managers and not so much coordination with the hospital staff.
Jobs can be skewed due to the hospital not coordinating properly enough to have a designated space large enough to house the help, or by not coordinating with the departments of the hospital to actually know where the devices are.
When it works, the work goes quick and easy. Just lots of possible ways to go wrong.
Don't even get me started on the sorts of crazy stuff that will happen in regards to getting car rentals or hotel rooms reserved on short notice. They tend to reimburse fairly well over any costs incurred at least.
You also may or may not get work just based on if they remember you exist. So it comes in waves if at all.
Decent Work, Good Coworkers if you're Lucky, Coordination makes for quicker jobs
Can be uncoordinated, may have periods of waiting between work
