I am a new grad trying to get a job at this hospital and I can't seem to get anywhere with them despite having my application there since Jan. 18th. I have called and visited HR at a job fair to see if that might help but nothing. Right now they have about 55 jobs posted in various departments. Starting to get discouraged. Could anyone shed some light on their hiring practices because I'm about to give up on them.
Have you looked at Promise yet? If you can stand LTAC, it pays a bit better than OLOL or BRG. They have three locations. The main one is on Mancuso Drive near OLOL. The other two are up on floors rented from Baton Rouge General Midcity and Oshner off of O'Niel. A lot of folks do not know about these places because they do not really advertise and are so well hidden.
Avoid Regency LTAC. It was run by an out of state management company called Cypress that had a reputation amongst agency for pretty bad treatment of staff. I have heard since that they may have lost the contract after bad press at two area nursing homes they also ran, but still...
Oh yes, you do know that all the Oschners in the state of LA have laid off most CNAs. They are using a team nursing model that has an LPN on the floor doing the CNA work with an RN behind the desk. FYI. High turnover and low morale some facilities.
