- Parkview Health System, Inc.18.Apr 2020
I always thought of Parkview as being a great place to work. After covid-19, my opinion has changed.
The company has been communicating very poorly with its employees during this pandemic. We feel sacrificial.
Overall compensation for your work
We deserve hazard pay for being forced to work with no social distancing during a pandemic. We deserve to not have to drain our PTO for time off related to the pandemic.
Office / Work Environment
I work at Parkview's Access Center. It is an old factory. It is cold and dirty. There is black dust everywhere. Everyone coughs all day. Many complain about developing respiratory issues like asthma and allergies.
After 20 years, I've always been proud to tell people I work for Parkview. I plan to leave once the covid19 pandemic ends. They've offered us no hazard pay, I had to drain my PTO, and the leaders laugh when we suggest social distancing at the Access Center. Hospital employees have been given time off without using their PTO due to the pandemic, but not the office workers. We're keeping this place running, and we're slowly all getting sick. This company considers us to be disposable.
My job is very busy and demanding.
Suggestions for improvement
- Bring in OSHA to test the air quality at the Access Center. Bring in the CDC to witness the lack of safety measures during covid-19.
What I like about the company
I've had 20 happy years with this company, but they've treated us like we're disposable during this pandemic. All we hear about is "the bottom line," and how we can't lose money. I'm watching my coworkers at the Access Center get sick and not return to work, while the supervisors joke about the lack of social distancing. I've been offered a measly night shift pay as compensation, which equates to about an extra $20 on my paycheck. I plan to leave when the pandemic ends. My first question to my new employer will be, "What did you do for your employees during the covid-19 outbreak?" Parkview should be ashamed of how they're treating their office staff at the Access Center.
What I dislike about the company
Making me feel like, as an employee, if I die of covid19 tomorrow, they'll replace me next week with a new body. They should probably stop treating their employees like that.
