Great place to work and get great experience in the medical field
Radiologic Technologist (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – August 7, 2015
Working here has it's ups and downs; you can be busy, then your swamped, then nothing, and then busy again. The work load is constantly changing, and some of the work is easy where other parts are very challenging. The crew that I work with is great, we all seem to get a long and focus on the patient. The most difficult part of my job is probably seeing people in pain or worse, which comes with the territory. Yet, we also get to help these people and sometimes just giving them a friendly smile and being easy to communicate with can help so much. There is so much to do here and you are continuously learning and getting new experiences.
Externship Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – December 4, 2015
A typical day at College Station Family Medicine starts out with patient's arriving at 8am and stays at a constant flow. I learned a lot about what I will be doing as a Medical Assistant in a doctors office and that excites me. The management team is very professional, the co-workers are great teachers and back each other up. The hardest part of the job would be explaining to patients things that are out of our control. The most enjoyable is getting to learn about our patients each and every other day.

Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – College Station – July 21, 2014
- a typical work day consisted of taking care of patients needs per provider request, and personal secretary to physician -I learned new things every day because there was always a new bone break that walked through the door. -Co-workers were very pleasant to work with and never had a problem with anyone because I am a neutral person. -The hardest part of this job was accepting when one of our elderly patients passed during an extensive surgical procedure. (Mostly E.R. Patients) -The most enjoyable part of the job was my relationship with the physician. We never butted heads and always were pleasant to each other.
free lunches with drug representatives
the med takes a while to get back with employees on requests.
Birth Registrar/HIM Clerk (Current Employee) – college station, texas – January 17, 2014
I love seeing the baby and learning all the different and unusual names. I was learning how to work in medical records which was never boring always new things to do. Always things to file, organize, create.
High focus on productivity, but mandatory flexing off schedule when census drops.
Full Time Acute and Rehabilitation Therapist (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – January 14, 2014
A great place to work, good & qualified therapists in various stages of careers.
Good Director, sometimes too strict and too productivity focused, cuts hours or flexes off staff frequently.
Not a stable position with any security that you will get your 40 week. Significant reduction in workforce in place, making meeting your personal debts impossible at times. No advancement or upward mobility available, even if that was the premise of employment expectations initially.
make your own schedule for the day and weekends.
insecurity of work hours, such as a significant loss in pay due to flexing off schedule due to census.
Consultant Analyst (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – December 25, 2013
The staff was wonderful to work for and were willing to form a splendid support network. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the leadership and their unwillingness to accept innovations and suggestions for improvements.
very stressful job, worked long hours, too much unprofessionalism between employees.
Registration Clerk (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – November 9, 2013
Counted money drawer, pick up new Dr. orders for patients, unlocked doors and let patients in office. Greeted each patient and registered patient for service, collected money for service after verifying insurance, after forms signed, patient is sent on their way to where they need to go. When not busy with patient, we call and pre-register patient over the phone and set up account for them and place folder in cart. At end of day, count drawer, add up money collected and fill out report and give cash drawer and money to cashier. Each department is different in patient flow. Day Surgery was very busy in the early morning for 4 to 6 hours. Outpatient was very busy all day. Admissions usually occurred after patient came in for outpatient services and then admitted Direct admits usually came in the afternoon after 4pm. The patient flow in ER depends on the weather, sesonal flu,football games, accidents and airlife transfers from or to another hospital.

state that you can advanc, i had medical record department wantng to hire me, went to school for it and when department head over med record csalled supervisor, he decline the transfer.
registered nurse (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – November 6, 2013
Loved my fellow staff nurses, and my immediate supervisor. I grew as a staff nurse, found comfort that my fellow nurses would collaborate with me as I did with them. Management for the most part were supportive and explanined their position when able to. The hardest part was just being stuck in the middle of different differences of opinion between doctors, administratior or anyone else who was fueding at any time. For the most part the organization was pleasureable to work for.
Surgical Tech (Former Employee) – College Station, TX – May 4, 2013
Only worked here for a short time. Induction to the OR could not have been worse! Rude co-workers and short in help. Not a team environment. Lots of work, which was good, very low pay, but call was phenomenal! Great area to live in
Very unorganized, political, unsafe place to work.
Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – March 24, 2013
Expect to work 4 or more shifts per week and we are basically told we have no choice when your FT. I learned how to care for a lot of different patient populations, but not a specialized hospital at all so not able to specialize yourself in a critical care area. The management has different agendas than patient care staff. They say safety is a priority, but then constantly make bad staffing decisions that are not safe for the patient. I love my fellow coworkers on my shift. Our department training is a joke, so some people are not safe to be on their own, but they are, per management. The hardest part of my job is having to prioritize my patients when there is not enough staff to get everything done. It breaks my heart when I have to choose. Also it has become increasingly difficult to tolerate the nurses that don't have enough common sense to look at their patient before they call our department. The best part about my job is helping my patients get better and watching them improve. I have also built many friendships here and enjoy working with fun people.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – College Station, TX – March 19, 2013
The day starts at 0600 in preop. After doing the preop of one or two patients I go over to the PACU side which is where the Step Down rooms are located. I open up the Out Patient book and the rooms to make sure they are ready for the day and are stocked for patient use. Then I take a quick break if time allows and begin sending patients home as soon as the PACU nurses give them to me. There are 3 Out Patient nurses every day depending on the OR schedule. It can be very fast paced, but we all enjoy our work so the day goes by quickly.
short breaks or no breaks happens more often than not
