Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
For the most part it is a good place to work at. Management is supportive and in my experience, coworkers on the units I’ve worked on work as a team.

Terrible organization

3-4 month wait from interview to starting position. Hiring process is archaic. General orientation provided is pointless and useless. Payroll continuously makes major errors. Management do not adhere to contract and have little to no experience.

Excellent place for learning

This is an excellent place for learning. Teamwork and management is excellent as well. There is a good support system especially for RN or LPNs starting with regards to skills advancement. Educators are very hands on to teach staff to be ready on the job.

Depending on the day.

Well the good thing is, it is a job. Especially, when it is hard to get one. 2nd not a bad pay check. Remeber to keep Mouth closed, head down, and mind your p's and q's and you will get all just fine.


Good pay and work especially when u get permanent status.


Watch your back.
