    I have been working at University of Pennsylvania Health System full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great exposure to hospital environment if you’re a student of nursing or pharmacy. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Rarely ever get trained on anything but med deliveries, cliques all around from “vet” techs, also known as techs who have been around a long time. If someone who has been there for a while decides they don’t like you and tells management that you’re not a good employee, they don’t question it. They only do peer evaluations not manager or pharmacist evaluations so don’t make any enemies.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized because everything is a mess. Take time to train employees who want to learn instead of overworking others because no one else is trained. Start doing manager reviews based on cameras or seeing workers with your own eyes instead of going off of peer evaluations.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at University of Pennsylvania Health System (Philadelphia, PA (US)) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Overall my hiring and interview process was amazing. My interviewer ended up being my manager and she was by far the best manager I ever had. Sometimes I actually wish I still worked for her. She was so welcoming during the interview process and was very informative on what the job was going to be like once I was hired.
