April 2015
"Extremely stressful no leadership; no concern for same."
Patient Care Technician:
Pros: Difficult to find good to report. Supervisor well known for lack of management and or people skills through out region, medical director voiced same opinion prior to her being hired. Guess we'll make do with her, expecting cms recert. Inspection. Lack of follow through concerning complaints about her, allowed to continue discriminatory hiring practices,( well documented ) No accountabilty for manager, ( very close friend with area manager ) trust but verify NOT practiced concerning manager. Allowed to re hire employees deemed ineligable for rehire by other fmc managers( three times, same race.)
Cons: Pt care techs are treated very poorly, are contantly reassured thier role is unimportant, and can be easily replaced. Their contributions are very seldom acknowledged as necessary much less praised. No bonus or incentive programs. No educational seminars classes ect. Certainly no conventions or trips. Tech appreciation is lunch served for entire staff, nurses receive t shirts, lunch boxes, gift cards ect. NEVER are techs asked for opinions concerning direct supervisor, much less management. Have no voice concerning how they are treated, try to complain about how your treated; you are subjected to continuous retalliation until you are fired.

"Chaotic and stressful."
Patient Care Technician:
Pros: Job security.
Cons: They expect people to work under extreme stress for little pay. Reduce hours so hourly people have a hard time meeting their bills. Expect you to enjoy making little money because you like helping others. They only give less than 1% raise annually to hourly staff pct's who perform the actual job.basically tell you to take it or leave it. Corporate are quick to give them self a raise.
