Sterile Processing Technician (Externship) (Former Employee) – This was in San Antonio, Tx for externship – February 4, 2016
My day started preparing and packaging surgical trays for sterilization. Work in the decontamination area in decontaminating and disinfecting surgical instruments, also work in the sterilizing area and distribution and storage area. The management was great and most of the co-workers were very responsible. I learned the responsibilities of a Sterile Processing Technician The most enjoyable part was just learning my job. This was just my externship requirement for my school curriculum and completion of the school.
The co-workers and managers were willing to help you
Overall positiive experience working with the public
PBX OPERATOR/FRONT DESK RECEPTIONIST (Former Employee) – Merrillville, IN – January 27, 2016
I worked at the Methodist Hospital in Merrilville IN for approximately 3.5 years and I thoroughly enjoyed the mechanics of my position working as a Switchboard Operator/Front Desk Receptionists. I felt a sense of accomplishment in serving the patients and in serving the public as a first contact for the hospital with callers calling in to the hospital. It was educational and enjoyable working with the many doctors, pastorial staff and volunteers at the hospital.
Comfortable working conditions
When working as sole operator on night shift, difficult to get away from switchboard for bathroom breaks
Only thing that gets worshipped at HMH is money. They will always choose money; the employee last if at all.
If you are within about 5 years away from 20 years of service, you may be let go. They'll hire someone younger (for less pay & less use of insurance). Multiply that times even 100 employees & that's a lot of money.
Human Resources department is horrible. Try to reach them for anything is a battle. They will not reply to emails or messages. Voice mails are full. If you actually manage to reach them, you'll find they talk a good deal, but do nothing. Lots of current platitudes (I'll reach out to....). How about actions? Such as I will call? And then actually do that.
You've been warned. It is all about money there.
Many good employees.
Expensive insurance. The longer you're there, the lower your raises no matter what your evaluations are. Money first.

Patient Access Service (Current Employee) – Houston Methodist Sugarland, Tx . – January 25, 2016
Providing quality customer service in person or over the telephone is absolutely important to me at all times whether , a patient is asking for directions or if you see that someone is in need then it is my job to assist every way possible. Co-workers we are a team and I work as a teamplayer. Management is awesome understanding , helpful, patient. Hardest of my job is that I know I can't make everybody happy but I'll do my very best with the skills I have in front of me. Happing others in need patient or co-workers.
My company (Methodist Hospital) we do have discounted lunches, exercise gym and bonuses.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Saint Louis Park, MN – January 21, 2016
The staff works very well together. The care provided at Methodist is patient centered. Its an average sized hospital. They have fairly good benefits which may vary per your union. I learned a lot working there. The nurses were really good about explaining procedures to patients as they were doing them. The staff is encouraged to educate the patients based on their conditions. I was a NA there and I worked in different places throughout the hospital. I believe the aides there work really hard in order to make the nurses jobs easier. Often times the aides didn't get much credit for patient outcomes there. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the patient recover and go home with a favorable opinion of the care that we gave.
Unit Secretary/ Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 14, 2016
There really is not a typical work day here everyday is different, sometimes its slow and sometimes its very busy. I learned how to do various things while working here and everyone is great to work with, very helpful and caring.
Food and Nutrition Assistant (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – January 12, 2016
The hospital is a good place to work. Not only are the nurses nice, the supervisors are equally nice and understanding with the workers. The patients were always happy to see me because I delivered their food.
Registered Nurse, Neurology/Stroke Center (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – January 11, 2016
I loved working at the Methodist hospital. It was only sad that when I graduated from nurse practitioner school as a FNP, they were not hiring FNP's just ACNP. I would have loved to continue my career there but I couldn't.
Certified Sterile Technician II (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – January 8, 2016
Over the past 15 years I have been able to experience myriad of skills that have afforded many opportunities thus far. For example, working in the Operating room with such a diverse group of individuals from surgeons to anesthesia technicians with different levels of education has given myself and others around me diverse reasoning and the understanding of how team work can enhance the outcome of a delicate situation such as surgery. Being able to interact with the patients, their families, and the members of the healthcare team is the best part of the job.
Accounting Clerk II (Former Employee) – Henderson, KY – January 7, 2016
Arrived early have a cup of coffee. Talked to others about what was the priority for that day. Started working on the most important task for about an hour. In about 2 hours the phone began to ring and I took messages and made appoints for the CFO. The day would continue balancing the phones and the priority. It was a busy day every day.
Registrar PRN (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 31, 2015
The staff is the major problem. The staff as well as management has clicks therefore if you don't fit in you just don't. staff is rude and everyone even people with the same position as you thinks there your boss.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Germantown, TN – December 30, 2015
Typical day was to come and stock lab tray and pick up floor runs. I have learned to take my time and be very accurate when dealing with patients in the hospital. Management was pretty descent, other then you may work through lunch, due to lack of staff. Hardest part was to see someone dying. Enjoyable part you see new people daily.
I have been here for a year now - it is a good company, I get along well with my coworkers and other employees. Some employees too zealous make your life miserable. But in the grand scheme of things I like it here.
