I had a job offer, accepted it, went through the physicals, labs, and was set to start orientation on a Monday in June 2018. On the way to that orientation on Monday, my car broke down. I called, no answer. I emailed them and told them the situation. I kept trying to get ahold of them, but was also dealing with AAA and a mechanic.
I finally heard back from them that afternoon. “The hiring manager is no longer interested in keeping you on. But feel free to apply again once you get your car back.”
I applied soon after and was told I was blacklisted. This is Scripps Hospital system in San Diego. They are huge!
I had some cardiac issue in 2019 and had to go to the closest ER, Scripps Mercy. Oh my... that was the worst experience I’ve had at a hospital, working or not. It was like Grey’s Anatomy, where they were all chatting & flirting. They would gossip about the patients right in the open. And to top it off, my ER doctor falsified my medical records in order to cover his butt.
I’m glad I don’t work for Scripps! I work for Sharp Health Care now and they’re just okay. My first acute care job in super rural California was the best quality across the board, these big hospitals can’t compete!
