    I worked at BMI Healthcare part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Negotiable on hours, at least for part time roles Additional payment for unsociable hours At least in my department there was a very laid back atmosphere which was really appreciated

    Cons

    At the interview, they spoke big game about upwards progression, however from speaking to colleagues in all areas of the hospital, and change in role will be a sideways move, with no more money to compensate for the extra workload Pathetic wages, considering what those higher up make Ignoring long term staff for promotions, instead hiring from out of the business High ups, at least at Ross Hall, have an inflated sense of self importance, expect you to get work completed before they have even asked for it, expect you to fawn over their brilliance but can't even remember your name. Management have a very bad habit of delegating discipline, instead of confronting you directly when they see an issue, which I could respect, they pass it off to a lower paid subordinate, which I personally find incredibly cowardly, as a result there is a lot of animosity between drones and managers Insane staff turnover, with people staying for anywhere between 1 shift and a few months before realising they'll be better valued or at least better paid elsewhere.
