      Patient Ambassador = Kitchen Staff

      Apr 28, 2019 - Patient Ambassador in Macon, GA

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Free food. Relaxed work environment

      Cons

      Low pay Horrible scheduling. Try not to schedule people to work double shifts multiple days in a row, and try to give people 5 day work weeks so they can have 2 days off in a row. People get burned out and are less likely to stay. Also you can offer overtime, but don't force it on people by making them do double shifts. Deceptive job ad. The job description given is misleading. Why are they calling it a "patient ambassador" when you're more of a "dietary aide"? You work in the kitchen in the back, load the trays and pass them out to the patients in the hospital. I only applied for the job because I believed it was more administrative in nature, I didn't expect to be on the "tray line".

      Pros

      Free meal with each shift you work

      Cons

      Management was absolutely horrible. Low pay compared to same jobs around the area. One person is given the responsibility and work load of 2 and 3 people because of such high turnover rate. I have never been treated and talked to so poorly in my life.
