Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Joplin, MO – June 21, 2016
- I learned a lot of skills, technology, terminology, diseases and legal issues concerning the Health Care field & Patient Care. - The Management team went above and beyond to accommodate & deal with all sorts of issues concerning patients, medicine, employees, visitors & dire health situations that were even beyond their scope or means. - Most of the time we had a great team especially on nights where things could be rough as we didn't have most management & offices opened. But, we dwell well with most situations that occurred. - The toughest part of the job included heavy lifting of patients, dealing with unruly visitors and patients, even having to call security. - I Loved the job because i acquired a lot of knowledge beyond my imagination. It paid well, had a lot of incentives and Continuous Education Programmes.
Nutrition Hostess (Current Employee) – Neosho, MO – March 16, 2016
The people at Freeman are great to work with! They have become like a second family to me. Like all jobs there is a downfall but the pros outnumber the cons. I have learned so much about the medical field just by being able to shadow different departments. Freeman is great to help you further your education and they are a very supportive staff.
I started at Freeman Health as a part time carpenter then was moved to a full time position as the clinic carpenter / maintenance. Then when maintenance department took over security I applied for and received the security coordinator position.
There was times when I was deployed that the security supervisor position was open and I would apply for it on line but I never received the opportunity for the advancement, nor was I interviewed for it as it was filled before I would return home. I was told once that they did not like my military manner by my supervisor who latter became the director while I had twice applied as supervisor. But overall the experience was tolerable and a good learning lesson, however a good sense of humor there will not get you far.
The work was mostly inside in a controled enviroment.
A leader in a special field should have a working knowledge of that field
Dr. Casanova/Pain Management/ Nurse (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – December 7, 2015
I learned a lot from the office manager, made good connections with the patients, and worked along side the Nurse Practitioner. I learned more than I ever thought I could in such a short time, and it was one of my favorite jobs.
Free Lunch from Reps, good people to work with day after day
Oncology Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – February 4, 2016
I was very happy with my job itself, my coworkers and the patients. I worked 3 days a week in the telephone triage, in the outpatient cancer institute. I worked 2 days a week in the chemo/treatment room. I enjoyed the change, and the challenge of telephone triage. I worked very well my co workers, actually went all over the building to help out when needed. I would frequently get pulled to go help if one of the Dr's nurses was off, of if they needed help in the non chemo infusion area. I also enjoyed that aspect of it. I enjoyed the relationships that developed between my co workers and myself. Love the patient interactions, ability to really teach them about their disease process and the s/e that they could expect from their chemo. My only issue is the one that lead to my leaving. I was told several times that I would be compensated for my OCN at $1.00 per hr. After I took the OCN and passed, the company decided that they would not honor that. That is why I left.

Barista (Current Employee) – Joplin, MO – October 20, 2015
Amazing food, drinks, and workers all around! Customers are nice as well! GREAT place to start with your foot in the door, hard to advance or go anywhere within a year though, to change in the system everyone has something to say about it, as in if you can and can't change positions, and when and why you can or cannot.
Lots of favoritism, too much workload & Management is by far the worst people I ever dealt with.
Patient Account Representative (Current Employee) – Joplin, MO – August 28, 2015
Management like to recognize and appreciate those they like and favor. Not only do co-workers talk behind each others back management talk about their employees!! They give you so much workload and the process of dividend work to your peers is unfair. They don't ever appreciate or knowledge the work you do.
Many of the people I work with are over the age of 25 and up who act like juveniles or worst. They can't seem to get along. Majority of them love to gossip and talk behind each others back.

Speech Language Pathologist (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – July 11, 2015
I began my career as and SLP with Freeman Health System. During that time, I was given many opportunities to expand my knowledge base and expertise in my area of interest. Even when budget cuts occurred, Freeman allowed me the time to obtain continuing education outside our facility in order to provide the up to date and cutting edge therapy for my patients.
Office Manager (Administrator) (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – August 18, 2015
I managed every aspect of the daily function of the medical office. I submitted billing daily and made sure the clinic was running smoothly. I handled insurance questions and made all orders for clinical equipment/material/medicine and office supplies.
Admissions (Former Employee) – Joplin, Mo – February 26, 2015
I was hired, worked for a week, then they fired me, and made me pay for scrubs out of my paycheck that FREEMAN sold to me. The reason was because they saw a DWI from 7 years prior on my background check, that they were already aware of prior to my first day of work. Then decided it was an issue after working for a week. Upper management will not return your calls and they will threaten harassment charges when you follow-up about receiving a return phone call.
Pharmacy Technician CPhT (Current Employee) – Joplin, MO – January 13, 2015
Freeman was probably the worst job I've ever had, and I worked fast food. Some pros include: great benefits, guaranteed hours for full and part time employees, pay well. Cons: just about everyone hates each other, the hours suck (typical hospital hours), benefits don't kick in for full time people until 120 days, if you're sick, there's no sick time they force you to use PTO (paid time off). If they schedule you an extra day off, they force you to use PTO because you have to have 40 hours a week when full time. The people in the department I worked at all hated each other and subsequently treated everyone else like dirt. If you decided to work here, all I have to say is, "Good luck."
Professional Company, They care about their Customers.
LAB ASSISTANT/PHLEBOTOMIST (Former Employee) – Neosho, MO – February 6, 2015

Patient Accounts Support Coordinator (Current Employee) – Joplin, MO – May 21, 2014
I have always enjoyed working for Freeman Health System and have had great opportunities to grow. Administration and management truly seem to have a sense of caring which makes you want to make the system succeed. One of the biggest issues is that many individuals of the general staff seem to not care or be devoted to their purpose. There is quite a bit of juvenility throughout certain departments and areas, but you have that in any place of business to an extent. Overall staff work together to provide excellent quality of care and service to our community and patients.
