Now ask yourself why they need to hire this many people. Is it because there’s a shortage of people in Denton, Texas, who need jobs? Or is it because no one ever really wants to work there for very long after they see what it’s like “on the inside?”

I don’t know the answer, I just know when I was there the talent was less-than-impressive. RN’s who couldn’t be understood because they had such thick foreign accents. Mental Health Techs running “therapy” groups. A chemical dependency coordinator (see “Drunk Randy”) who couldn’t keep his patients straight. Oh, and a doctor who is chief medical director (see “Dr. Khan”) who couldn’t remember why this patient was there.

All you folks in Denton who need jobs had best scurry on over there…. nah, take your time. The jobs will still be waiting when you finally  lower yourself to the point of applying for a job at UBH Denton.
