I was contacted by a staffing agent for a job with Bergen Regional Hospital in Paramus. Can any one tell me anything about the hospital as an employer?
Any information would be greatly appreciated....
Thanks

It is never on the employer but always on the employee.

In the NYC metro you cannot be to picky.

If the pay is good go with it.

Not really sure I understand your reply. I am not trying to be picky. Just want to work in a facility that has a good atmospher (ms) oops. The employer always has the upper hand in the work place in this day and time. However, I do not want to work where you are treated like little toy soldiers.....
The money is good, but money is not everthing. EVEN in Bergen Co.....with the prices HIGH....I have been in the healthcare industry for over 20 years and I can tell you some stories. I work hard. Do my job each day as if the stated team was in house. But do not want to have to pick up after others that are lazy.
Any information is always greatly appreciated and be most helpful in my transition to New Jersey.
Thanks

I just mean that if the money is good, you should take the job because you are in NNJ

How many other opportunities do you have?

I just like to keep my posts short and concise

Where is this hospital located?
Though I haven't been in NJ for over 10 years, some hospitals had some reputations.

The old Bergen Pines was a sore topic for years. I think it was former Bergen County Executive Pat Schuber, or under his tenure, where the hospital was reformatted or whatever you want to call it.

Is it still a county facility? I don't know if it is or not, or what type of facility is is these days, but I don't think it is considered one of the "go to" medical facilities in Bergen County.

Good luck.

OK, state facility. It was known years ago as the "go to" or "send to" place for mental/nervous/etc. and where the indigent, homeless, etc. were sent as well. I don't think much has changed. People who live in Paramus go to Valley Hospital in Ridgewood or Passcack Valley in Westwood (which is not in good shape financially; much talk about the hospital closing, etc.).

Others who are closer, more South in Paramus might go to Hackensack.
