Great place for experience, over works full time staff, very poor pay.
EMT-B (Current Employee) – Waco, TX – January 15, 2017
There is plenty of experience to be gained working here, however, many people have experienced job burnout because of being overworked and underpaid. Working as a PRN/Part time EMT, you will be paid less than the lowest paid employee at Buc-ee's Gas Station, and do not receive raises and will not have work made available if you are injured outside of work and are incapable of working. Another issue is that if you are working the standard 12 hour truck, you will be paid less than a 9 hour truck hourly, and the company claims that this is logical somehow. The working conditions are hard on your body and general well being, as you are stuck in the ambulance for 12 hours at a time and doing post changes, which makes it hard to be able to catch any sleep if there is downtime while working a double shift, as there are no stations for the workers to be in. This wouldn't be such an issue if it were not for the fact that the ambulances have been traded out for new ambulances that have less room in the front cab for the EMTs and Paramedics to ride in. The coworkers are mostly all great people, just stressed out and overworked, due to mandatory overtime and the rotating on call schedules for full time employees. A positive is that the company now offers a paramedic program within the company that has just now been brought to Waco. If you are wanting to work to the bone and get a lot of good EMS experience, a full time position would be ideal, even a part time position is good. You are able to work as much (not to exceed continuous 36 hours), or as little as 48 hours in a month. All andmore... all, a decent job for getting experience and having as a side job, however, not a great job to stay with, unless you have nothing else.less
Plenty of opportunity to work, Paramedic program available within the company, CEs are available
Poor pay, poor working conditions, you'll get paid more sweeping parking lots at a gas station
Low pay, poor training, higj expectations. Always understaffed due to high turnover of staff. Loved helping the patients but etmc is profit driven . The learning curve using the outdated as400 system is crazy. Only go thete if you are desperate. Supervisors are typical corporate, taking it easy while the clerks work their butts off!
its a paycheck. health cover after 60 days. great patients
RN (Current Employee) – Quitman, TX – July 21, 2016
I currently work PRN at ETMC Quitman. I would describe the atmosphere as small town with the "family feel". This facility is providing care to the community and allowing them to stay close to home. As you all know, nurse has it's good days and challenging ones, however ETMC Quitman is a wonderful group to work with and for. They provide excellent care and compassion to patients and others and are always willing to help out when needed.
Constant back to back calls in queue. Learned about many programs the state offers. Surrounded by co-works that enjoyed helping others. Hardest part was being unable to help some customers that where in a bind. Enjoyed knowing you can make a difference in other people's lives when they needed the most.
Medical assistant "back then I was in training. (Former Employee) – Pittsburg TX – July 16, 2015
As I was in training, everyone there was wonderful, the nurses, the physicians. The physicians saw patients on time and they always had a work routine going, which is hard to see in many work environments, especially in a hospital setting.
the paid amount was fair and everyone gets treated equally.
Medical Record Tech & Nursing Adminstration Assistant
Medical Records Tech (Former Employee) – Athens Tx – July 14, 2015
A typical day at ETMC consisted of me assisting with ER analysis, verified/scanned Medical Records, competed addendums, verified and marked inpatients within AS-400, completed surgery data logs and reported inpatient cultures.
HOUSEKEEPING (Former Employee) – Tyler – July 3, 2015
A typical day at ETMC is about the same as my past jobs go in and clock in and go do your duties. What I did at ETMC was making sure that the floors from the surgeries room were clean and also the halls. My co-workers kept to them self and were polite never had a problem with no one. Since I worked there there hasn't been a task that I couldn't do. ETMC was a calm place to work and also work on your passe there were no rush just make sure it was done when needed.
poor management made work environment very stressful when job wasn't or the problem
Dietary (Former Employee) – Jacksonville Texas – April 30, 2015
poor management. management played favorites when someone was sick you have to have a doctors note or you were put out to be a liar for calling in sick even with a doctors note as well holding your job over your head saying you don't have one even though you're really sick and been put in the hospital again with a doctors note they didn't care. management act like they were concerned but when asking for you time off for a doctors appointment for check up they complained about it. management didn't leave their office. In the office unless it was time to eat for lunch. let other people talk to customers and other coworkers poorly and took up for them. to me it means a lot of clothes workers and management needs to be replaced to do the job better very stressful environment with all I said was going on.
RRT (Former Employee) – Athens, TX – December 7, 2014
This hospital is a good place to work. All departments don't work as well together as other hospitals but it works. At this facility a RRT is basically jus a neb jockey. It has no respiratory protocols and the administration and physicians are not going to allow them. The director of the respiratory department isn't even a respiratory therapist, she is the director of the Lab. With all that in mind it is an OK place to work.
What I don't understand is that the ETMC mother hospital in Tyler has almost all the Respiratory care protocols and a director that is a RRT.
