Nurse Manager (Former Employee), Conroe, TX – August 12, 2013
Our hospital is always busy. From critical to general patients. We see it all. I have learned so much and advanced from GN to Management. My coworkers are the best. Everyone is helpful and enjoys coming to work. Nursing is truly a calling for these nurses.
Unit Secretary/Nurse Technician (Former Employee), Conroe, TX – October 15, 2013
Pros: 30 min lunches breaks and i loved the grill area in the cafeteria.
Cons: i wished the lunch breaks were an hour besides 30 minutes and the health benefits were better.
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.
productive place,lots of things to learn w/ little a fun or may be non at all-our holiday/christmas party is taken away.

Pros: i have $7.00 worth of free meal
Cons: healthcare benefits is not as good
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 – more... our work. – less
Medical Staff Coordinator (Former Employee), Conroe, TX – January 30, 2013
Pros: close to home.
Cons: too many to list.
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 – more... 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. – less

STAFF NURSE (Current Employee), CONROE, TX – July 1, 2012
Pros: if you live in conroe it is convenient .
Cons: no breaks except lunch (sometimes) poor pay
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 – more... 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. – less
Nurse Tech 1 south former employee (Former Employee), Conroe Tx – May 16, 2012
Pros: parking, schedule, good charge nurses
Cons: low pay, lazy co-workers, under staffed, bad food service, poor management
I was a tech on the floor. I had trouble with co workers being rude. I would be gone for a few days and come back to find basic supplies hadn't been past out to patients. Alot of people would tell me I was one of the only nice ones there. Pain is not treated well for patients. They would have one tech for 30 patients alot of the time. So one tech can – more... not possible do all the work making sure bed bound patients get turned every two hours and changed and unstable people get the attention they need. Also had a patient go into the parking lot he was confused and I called security for help but they were no help. I had to leave my patients on the floor and go look for a lost patient. The rooms are not very clean and floor are not kept well. Food is often served late and cold and sometimes they skip patients. They overlook alot of things. The machines didn't work properly sometimes. I worked here for three months. I had to go on depression medicine to handle the stress of the rude co-workers. I cant tolerate care that is not properly done. I wouldn't recommend working here. I have talked to other people also as i am new to texas this past year. They stated there experience was not good. Go to the woodlands the pay is higher and maybe the management will be better along with the workers. – less
