Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – February 4, 2016
The pay was horrible. No room for advancement if you are not interested in being a nurse. Hospitals don't close, often worked weekends, holidays, and long hours. being the only secretary for any given shift that is poorly staffed, calls-ins, no matter what the emergency or illness, is not an option.
Medical Assistant, Lab tech, Receptionist (Current Employee) – Flexible schedule – August 10, 2015
A great company where I learned to work well with many different types of people. I learned how to take care of a lot of ill people. I have dealt with their family members on a more personal level. Great experience in healthcare.
A typical day at my current job is very busy. I have learned from accounting positions how to process invoices, reconcile statements and distribute checks. As an Accountant I have learned how to create journal entries, reconcile bank acocunts and month end close. My managers have been very supportive. I have worked with a large number of talented people.
CT Technologist (Current Employee) – San Antonio texas – June 11, 2015
a work day at Methodist starts off with a slew of patients waiting to be examined and imaged. It is a very busy department ,but everyone does their part to make the patient comfortable and at ease. I have learned that you have to set your mind that you are hear to provide a service and, that you represent the firm you work for. Management some times can make things easy , and at other times can be a burden. They don't always step in and help out . they can make things a little hectic if they micro manage. Co worker can be a god send if they know what they are doing and if they are team players The hardest part of the job is not having the staffing needed. The most enjoyable part of the job is being fully staffed and every body doing their part .
being told at the end of the shift that you need to stay for another shift
Staff RN (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – March 31, 2015
Receive report. Specialized assessment of post partum and newborn nursery care. Mother Baby care. I learned a lot about the newborn infant. Management always available if needed. Co-workers ready to assist if needed. Job was not hard, I enjoyed my workday a lot.
As a Patient Access Representative of Methodist Healthcare I am a very hard worker and take pride in my work. The hardest part about my job is not knowing if I'm stepping on y Supervisor toes. My co-workers are great.
I enjoyed working in the hospital setting. I met new people everday as well worked with a great team. Got raises and bonuses in a timely manner. We had fun events and often got awards and recognition for doing a great job. But the most enjoyable part of my job was helping the patients feel loved and stay postive even in grim circumstances. The most hardert part of my job was getting attached to a patient and afterwards they passed.

I enjoyed the work I did and it was nice to help people out. I loved caring for patients. The ones that's making all the money don't do nothing and the ones that they don't pay have to do 10 different positions. They pay you as less as they can and give the directors big bonuses and tell you no overtime because they are on a budget. Don't make no since cut the little people, rich get richer and poor get poorer.
Methodist Healthcare is a great company to work for. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing a smile from the most difficult patient. I worked in orthopedics and learned different types of fractures, surgeries, least invasive options to surgery, joint replacements, and how to care for orthopedic patients. The hardest part of my job was balancing the care of six postoperative patients, all of which are in pain. Also, seeing a patient make a turn for the worse, especially when it was completely unexpected, was a tough part of the job. Methodist cares about their employees. I recommend it to others as a good place to work.
Experienced RN with excellent skills and flexibility

Hostess/Dietary (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – July 6, 2014
A typical day at Methodist is hectic but fun. I learned not to get upset with the fact that i was doing my work and others more then my share because the work had to be done. Management isnt too good they mis-communicate with one another and cant keep up with their own changes. The hardest part was keeping up with all the changes. The most enjoyable part of this job was making the patients happy and satisfied. The pay was not enough for all the daily tasks.
