What do you guys think. I don't quite get how it works even though I read the ad more than once.

Think long and hard before taking that offer. I know several people that work (and have worked) there and know for a fact that their "perks" often come with strict rules. For example, I had a friend that accepted their $10,000 sign-on bonus, BUT she had to stay for THREE years and she had to stay in the same dept. for the ENTIRE time! If she were to leave 1 day short of that three years, she'd have to pay the entire amount back!!! Oh and did I mention that she hates her dept??? OOPS!
I've heard a LOT of really BAD stories come from nurses that worked in the UPMC system, especially Presby and Monte.!!!! At first I just thought it was a fluke and maybe those people were a little jaded for whatever reason, but after hearing sooooo many horror stories, I'm beginning to wonder!
Also, I interviewed there and even shadowed for eight hours....couldn't shake the feeling that there was something that people just weren't telling me. Had a really bad feeling!
Hope my humble opinion helps!
P.S. If you want to discuss the other major hospitals in the city, PM me!
