Company Culture

It is a very friendly and community focused location. The employees seem tight knit and warm to each other.

Support from management

My department manager isvery easy to work with and willing to provide guidence in most situations.

Teamwork

The culture feels very warm and inviting.

Freedom to work independently

For the most part the company allows each location to keep their own proticals and routines.

Internal Communication

Upper management seems to not communicate plans very well in advance, leading to department managers being overwhelmed by sudden changes

Gender Equality

In my location, most managers and higher positions are women. I have not seen any examples of gender discrimination at my specific workplace.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Many employees at my location are older and have been working there for a long time. They do not seem to be discriminated against.

Office / Work Environment

Each department has temperature controls and comfortable work spaces.

Environmental Friendliness

Recycling and environmentalism is not as common in this area as it should be.

Work-Life Balance

The work is very rarely overwhelming for average employees. Some managers are more stressed for time though.

Company Image

I feel that the company does a great job helping people in underserved areas.

Handicapped Accessibility

Being a hospital, it is vital to be accessible to those in any consition.

Workplace Safety

We have extensive safety training, though accidents do happen due to the nature of working with the sick and elderly.

Challenging Work

Most days are fairly slow and routine. Occasionally it can get somewhat hectic.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Allow each location more control of its own needs. The department managers are more suited than regional higher ups to build their own stratgies and proticals.

What I like about the company

The employees are for the most part very welcoming and friendly. They seem to care about one another and work well together. We get to do good by helping those in need in underserved rural areas. We often sponser community events as well.

What I dislike about the company

Upper management is more focused on cutting costs than helping provide better service, often to the detriment of the workers. Often those in higher positions seem very detached from the real day to day work that goes on, and less competent than those working in the departments.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I feel that there should be more specific policies on tardiness alone and not intertwined with the absentee program in place,

What I like about the company

The medical insurance is good and rates are decent. My coworkers on my shift are wonderful, we always have each others backs and have become like a family

What I dislike about the company

I feel fairness is a bit of an issue, there are obvious manger picks, but that is everywhere i guess. I do not personally like the current way in which scheduling is being done.

Company Culture

I work with a great group of people, for the most part, there is the occasional bad egg, but we all tend to pull together to get a job done.. I do, however, think that ARH as a whole would greatly benefit from ridding itself of the Unions, because of the Union there is such a distance placed between administration and staff, not as bad as it once was but it’s still there. The union from what I’ve seen the past few years, has done nothing beneficial for the employees at ARH.

Career Development

There are very few of these and they tend to go to people who are “close” with management.

Challenging Work

I work in an ER, so some days are more challenging than others, and staffing isn’t always the best.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get rid of the Union, offer more financial incentives for employees, like bonuses, more than$20, for picking up extra shifts.

What I like about the company

When tragedy strikes this team sticks together. Whether it’s an illness or a personal tragedy, co workers will, for the most part, go out of there way to help, either by covering shifts, donating money, or whatever may be needed.

What I dislike about the company

The Union, it separates and divides. It keeps licensed educated employees from making the money that they should be making because they are included in a union with non licensed, non trained workers.
