My work place
Radiologic Technologist (Current Employee), Odessa, TXAugust 20, 2015
I work evenings and it gets pretty crazy sometimes. We don't have tons of help and so I am back and forth from surgeries, ER and doing floor portables. It is a hectic work place, but I have learned so much from working here. I have learned that you have to be confident in all that you do. You work by yourself a lot. Surgery is my strong point and I absolutely love it. I get along with all the doctors and the staff. Medical Center in a Level II hospital so we see so much everyday, from oil field accidents to car accidents, etc.

Unsafe and unfair management
RRT (Former Employee), Odessa, TxAugust 1, 2015
Cons: No breaks, No help, terrible superior visors and director.
Cardiopulmonary management is ran unfair. They have no clue how to be a successful therapist. They are very unprofessional and talk down to you as if you were a kid. All about money and no concerns on patient care. New employees thrown into critical areas without proper training. They will send you home and not care about giving you hours even when it is busy. But on another note...Coworkers are the best. Good benefits.

Great coworkers but unsupportive management
RRT (Former Employee), Respiratory therapyJuly 15, 2015
Pros: Great hospital and coworkers
Cons: Supervisors bully employees
Workloads are heavy and unsafe. Staff always being sent home having to use ppl to get 36hrs even if census doesn't call for it. No accountability for management. Supervisors retaliate against staff when pt. safety concerns are brought up. New employees rushed through training and left with critical pts without the proper training.

RRT (Former Employee), Odessa, TXMay 11, 2015
Pros: Good benefits and excellent retirement potential
I was given optimal opportunity at MCHS. I learned and benefit from the professional leadership at this hospital.

The work organization is structured in such a way that work is equally distributed at the beginning of the shift and periodically leveled by the lead therapist. It continues to be the responsibility of the therapist to check on peers for support.

Registrar (Former Employee), Odessa, TXJanuary 8, 2015
Pros: fast paced and professional enviroment
Cons: watching patients get diagnosed with cancer
Registered patients for mammograms. Verified insurance and demographic information. The most enjoyable was talking to all types of people. The hardest part is watching a patient walk out with the diagnosis of cancer. I've learned that breast cancer does not happen only to women. My coworkers were fun and great to work with. The supervisor was compassionate and great to have as a supervisor.

Hostile work environment
Human Resources Specialist (Former Employee), OdessaJanuary 4, 2015
Cons: miserable, too many ppl in positions theyre not qualified for
Didn't enjoy coming to work

HR Operation Director didn't know what she was doing. Was not qualified for that position. Made a lot of errors and didn't take ownership.

No Team or leadership

Executive Director, was not qualified for the position. She was given the position due to not enough qualified applicants for the positions. Very poor relationship and so called leadership with employee and staff. Not well liked by anyone, except the CEO of the hospital

Good place to earn entry level experience.
PC Tech Level II (Current Employee), Odessa, TXSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: co-workers, benefits, and most end users
Cons: lack of communication and short notice on high priority issues.
A typical day at work is normally quite eventful. It will start with coffee and a morning meeting, then you'll rush off to complete your daily tasks. Projects will be thrown in to the mix and these plus your usual work keep you busy until lunch. Once you're back, you will continue with your tickets and nearing 5 o'clock, when you're ready to kick back and relax, someone will send a high priority update that breaks every application in the hospital. Keeping you there until it's finished. You can't leave this place without a little excitement before the end of the day.

I learned how to be politically correct around upper management.

The co-workers are absolutely the best part of the establishment.

The hardest part of the job, is definitely the job.

The most enjoyable part of the job is being thanked by the end users after solving an unbeatable issue on their work station.

Constant pressure high stress level job
Patient Access Representative (Current Employee), Odessa, TXSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: you can be off during the week if you needed to go to school, providing you supervisor approved.
Cons: if we even got a break, it was short, very hard to leave campus, stuck in a hospital 10 hrs a day minimum, the hierarchy, it's not what you know it's who you know
A typical day at work, was constantly worrying what we were going to be in trouble for that day.

I learned how to be professional in dealing with certain situations that weren't to my liking.

The management is terrible. In the 3 yrs I worked there we went through 3 managers and 3 supervisors, and when they decide to come in the dept, it's very rare to hear positive feedback. It seems all they have time to do is have meetings, and do audits...

Co workers were good.. We mostly all have the same personality so it was easy to get along with them

Hardest part of my job was dealing with the stress of just coming into work.. You never know when you're going to have a meeting with management. And when you got in trouble it was from 2 or 3 months ago where you couldn't remember why you did what you did because it had been so long.

The most enjoyable part is interacting with each other the employees were super nice there. And the patients were nice too. If you wanted to take a break or get away for a little bit you could go talk to a patient and make them feel better. It was rewarding in the sense that you knew they felt better when you left the room.
