Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Conroe, Texas – April 8, 2014
Worked the second shift, 1400-2300 Monday-Thursday and loved it since I drove back to my home in Arlington every weekend. Being a unit secretary kept you on your toes and one met people from every walk of life and from every situation imaginable. One moment you're laughing from exhaustion, the next you're trying to maintain your composure when a family is struggling over losing their loved one, to wanting to lecture someone for doing a drug overdose or texting while driving. At the end of the shift you feel good about what you've done and know you've done the best you could do.
The scheduling was reasonable, which permitted a good work/life balance. Management was largely invisible, though. The job culture was clannish and non-inclusive. For me, the worst part of the job was the commute.
Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Conroe, TX – September 13, 2015
I enjoyed my time working at Conroe Regional. I had a wonderful opportunity to work with elderly, new moms and babies. It was a growing experience for my heart and I can appreciate what the medical field does for our community.
We have a meeting every Tuesday morning to make sure things are running smoothly. Management has a "Green Light" system that they use to help us accomplish tasks. My coworkers are friendly and generally keep to themselves, which is nice because we have a lot to do. I believe the hardest part of the job is when we are unable to help the patients to the extent that they need. But the most enjoyable part would have to be seeing the smiling faces on the patients that we are able to help.
Stay as far away from this hospital as you possibly can! Worst work environment I've ever seen. Terrible pay, terrible management, and nobody cares about you, regardless of how much time and energy you invest in your job.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Conroe, Texas – December 10, 2014
The nursing staff will ridicule and torture staff of lesser education than them and the staff is lazy. I went there because I couldn't breathe all they did was x-ray my chest and send me on my way saying I needed to go see and see a specialist. Thing is I can't afford it and I explain that to them very clearly they didn't even give me anything to help me breathe. Worst hospital ever and I don't find myself ever going back not as a patient nor as an employee....
Fast paced, but enough time to help and try to please those in need. I'm better at communicating, and have leaned to find out things about people that help to build a more personal connection. Being willing and available to help others makes it much easier to delegate and manage others. Coworkers as a group create the floors personality, my coworkers are all fantastic. Pleasing every one all the time is the hardest part of my job, but i try. The thanks from patients and their families!
Unit Secretary/Nurse Technician (Former Employee) – Conroe, TX – October 15, 2013
I worked at Conroe Regional Medical Center for years and it was a nice experience and a good hospital to work for. I learned my job as a unit secretary there very well and i was one of the best at what i knew. My most enjoyable part was interacting with my co-workers and doing my job to the best of my ability.
30 min lunches breaks and i loved the grill area in the cafeteria.
i wished the lunch breaks were an hour besides 30 minutes and the health benefits were better.
productive place,lots of things to learn w/ little a fun or may be non at all-our holiday/christmas party is taken away.
registered nurse (Former Employee) – 2 north – August 27, 2013
it's a productive workplace with a lot of things to learn,but the workload is increasing where the fun part turn into a stressful outcome.co-workers are helpful in some ways,but they do have their own share of work to do.the hardest part is when we are short handed w/ staff.the fun part is when our patients and the management recognize and appreciate our work.
Medical Staff Coordinator (Former Employee) – Conroe, TX – January 30, 2013
There are no departmental policies and procedures. No training was offered. Time constraint complaints were ignored. Was not informed that position was posted for 6 months, had be filled 6 times in 1 year. Wish I had known that ahead of time. Management did not want employees to leave the office for any reason, including to go to a doctor. I never saw the "values" being instilled in anyone. What a waste.
Went to the ER and was required to give a urine sample and my blood pressure was checked. They never even took the sample to test or performed any other tests. Received a bill for absolutely no service.
The core staff that have been there a long time are Pretty decent, newer staff come and go at fast rates. Has very high nurse turnover . Management is very punitive minded instead of trying to correct Needs in the hospital they just fire whoever has raised that particular issue. Ceo states yearly in forums that there are people just waiting in line for your jobs, so if you aren't happy here just leave. No management support for staff.Makes sure staff know they are expendable. Have charge nurses that bully staff. Nurses are expected to let patients speak to and treat them as poorly as they want and there is no support from management.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Conroe,TX(Lab) – January 28, 2013
I love the hospital flow! I worked the graveyard shift and my typical night always started out slow but ny 2am is when the fum starts. From 3am until 6am we drew about 150 patien from all floors incuding I.C.U and C.C.U, The nursed where very helpful and the laboratory staff was great! I only left because I now had a son and was not able to work the shift required and I was also working another job as well just 2 make ends meet.
Doing Start Up on the 14 man multiplace double lock hyperbaric chamber. Make sure everything is running properly and up to par. Second half of the day assisted in clinical wound care. Learned civil and mechanical engineering and how to successfully run a sophisticated multiplace chamber. Learned how to successfully diagnose acute and chronic wounds. Proper medications to apply to wounds for treatment. Proper dressing and wraps to apply you wounds. Everyone I worked with was absolutely fantastic. We were like one big happy family. Unfortunately upper management was absolutely horrid. And corporate politics ran the clinic. I didn't really find any hard parts physically or mentally about my job. Everything seemed to come very natural.
great learning environment
bad managment! unfair wages! big time corporate polotics
A typical work day was always a busy day. I learned alot about Medical terms and devices. Management is good. I loved my co-workers the hardest part of the job was trying to things in a timely manner. I enjoyed helping out all the patients at the hospital.
