Transporting patients can be very fulfilling and they're the people that I do this job for. My biggest problem with working for this company is the general manager at our location. This is one person that EVERYBODY in transport has a problem with. She has no business being in the position that she's in. She's a terrible leader and talks to all of us with a condescending tone every single day. What really got me was that she made some mistakes scheduling me against my availability but still docked points off me even though it was HER mistake. I was threatened with termination for my attendance because I had to call off on the days SHE made the mistake of scheduling me on. These are days that she knew I worked my other job. We're not treated with respect by her at all. It's just all very ridiculous what we have to deal with at work when we do our job and we do it to the best of our abilities but we're always understaffed because our GM doesn't want to schedule more people on days and that is severely affecting the patient flow of the hospital. Nobody wants to stay longer than they need to when dealing with all of this so this is why transporters come and go. We're not treated with any kind of respect by our GM and there's no morale. This is something that NEEDS to be looked into.
Did not work there long but the business structure as well as the management leadership were both sound. Could use a little bit more of a Polish to the professionallism the existing employees present in front of patients and other guests.
Get your patients safely from point A to B
If there were no patients you sit around and wait (rare)
Time management is key as you were timed per patient per hour
If you don’t have satisfactory times you will be reprimanded
Perhaps it is that I am working in a hospital that devalues Sodexo employees. We are not apart of the hospital so we are treated as second class and are not allowed to be apart of the union. My experience has been a life lesson that I need to change jobs.
short or no breaks, worked to the bone, everyone thinks they are your manager, HR is no help
Everyone at the company is friendly and helpful when you need it, they allowed me to learn at a fast pace and were able to get me on a shift that helped with my sleeping schedule. Management can be a bit petty about little things but that's due to the individual person, not a representation of the company as a whole. The hardest part of the job is being a third party vendor working in a hospital with rude nurses, and not being able to do anything about the rude nurses.
I enjoyed my time and experience with Sodexo. Always uplifting and positive. I learned about team work and accountability. The job could be strenuous at times with the transporting of patients in their hospital beds. But I was honored to be apart of each moment and day that I worked with sodexo.
