Physical Therapist Assistant (Current Employee) – Joplin, MO – May 11, 2017
Being part of Freeman's therapy team was very rewarding, including the privilege of getting to work with a broad and diverse group of patients, and interact with a variety of physicians and other practitioners! I would recommend Freeman to everyone!
CoWorkers and Bosses were easy to work with and for
Nutrition Hostess (Current Employee) – Joplin, MO – May 10, 2017
The job could be stressful but the coordinators and my coworkers made it bearable. The different diets are very important to the health and well being of the patients. The hardest part of the job was the hours sometimes if extra help was needed but the most rewarding part of the job was interacting with the patients and their caregivers.
Checking out the new items before serving them to the patient
Freeman Health was a good place to work, coworks are second to none.
Regisitered Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Neosho Mo – February 27, 2017
I worked at Freeman Health for a year as a RMA in their float pool first in Joplin then Neosho. The people were great, the hours good, the pay okay considering Missouri's cost of living. I am passionate about my chosen career Freeman made it easy to use my skills and learn new and exciting ones. Would have never have left Freeman if I hadn't moved. Would go back to work for Freeman in a heart beat if they had a clinic here in Arkansas.
People, work load
Pay, no reimbursement to Medical Assistants wanting to go back to school to become RN etc.
Charge Nurse, RN (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – February 19, 2017
Freeman was a great place to work, the best education around. The main problem is the pay. Southeast Missouri pays must less than other parts of the country. Freeman Neosho diverts patients they could care for, but other than that it is a good place to work
busy and productive workplace, terrible management
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – January 31, 2017
While I worked at this facility, I learned the inner workings of the housekeeping and what had to be done to maintain a healthy, productive environment inside a hospital. However, the managers I worked with were lazy, rude, and vulgar. I had a friend who was pregnant at the time, and a manager who worked there at the time, and was married, often flirted with her in a very unprofessional manner. I am not sure if he works there still.

Management, preceptors provided support and education throughout orientation process. I appreciated the teamwork among coworkers, and the hospitalists were approachable. Over all it was a good experience.
Psychiatric Technician (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – November 30, 2016
If you are the new kid on the block, the older techs will basically harass you and make you miserable if you are more likable then they are. I was personally told that some of the techs and nurses were seeing how far they could push me until I quit. I can honestly say I would never work for them again. Management is horrible and play off the good old boy system. And there is a lot of bullying that happens and nothing is done about it.
benefits, make your own schedule
A lot of work place drama and bullying that goes unchecked
Clinic nurse, ICU nurse (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – September 21, 2016
Did various jobs throughout the system. Office environments are generally friendly and care for their staff and patients. Hospital setting is unfriendly, cut-throat and only concerned with making money and competing with the other hospital in town. The other nurses are mean and "eat their young" instead of mentoring them. Not recommended in the hospital setting. Jobs are not secure. They have been known to clean house of the older nurses who have lots of benefits and have earned longevity bonuses.
Office setting is great.
Hospital setting is not good for patients or staff.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – September 14, 2016
I do not feel that management treated everyone the same with current situations I feel as if you had been there for a while they expected you to train and teach everyone how to do the job even when you were not informed you are the person in charge of training them. I do not feel the work load was spread evenly threw co-workers.
