Registrar (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 22, 2015
All you pretty much do for 12 hours is sit behind a computer and register patients. When you are not doing that, you act as the information booth as well. There is not much excitement within and it can often get boring doing the same thing over and over. Some members of management are good, others act like they don't care about anything other than the numbers. The hospital environment is often filled with adults who act like children, and management just expects you to deal with it. Problem solving is an issue both for management and employees. Managers do not handle things efficiently or effectively. The hardest part of the job is having to walk on pins and needles along with the constant stress and pressure from management. There is not much room for advancement within the company either. The perks of the job are 12 hour days so you essentially get a 3 day weekend, the overtime hours are great, you get one hour lunches, and you get lots of interaction with others. The job is great if you enjoy this kind of work and working environment. If you want to advance, or the medical field just isn't for you, it can get old pretty fast.
12 hr shifts, 1 hr lunches, discounts in the cafe, working with patients
Unit Clerk (Former Employee) – san antonio,tx – July 16, 2015
My days there were very busy. I learned how to read a Dr writing lol. My co-workers were great and hard working. Hardest part of my job were to see so many sick people. Best part is when they got well and were able to go home to there families.

Very hectic, over worked and under paid. from day one co- workers tell the stories of the heavy over turn of employees.Managment doesn't get involved rather write you up then help you as a manager should.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – May 30, 2015
closely monitored environment by various leaders rounding on nurses. Not a place where autonomy is encouraged. Extra shifts are easily obtained. You are free to set your schedules as long as it's done in advance.
PCA III, United Secretary (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – March 11, 2015
I really enjoyed working with this hospital I learned a lot about patient care and how to deal with different types of people. I had wonderful charge nurses and management. Its was busy and short staff a lot, but working with my co-workers made the night workable. The most fun part of my job was talking and taking care of my patients.

Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 1, 2014
great work environment, always busy, really nice co workers they were always there when in need. easiest part of my job was getting to know my patients real well getting to comfort them with whatever the case was.
I was always productive working as a CVT and Supply Coordinator
CVT and Hemodynamic Recorder (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 4, 2014
Working as a CVT and Supply Coordinator, the hardest part of my job was being able to find the time to maintain the supplies we needed. I pulled my share of work as a CVT plus call. I enjoyed staying busy, but there were some days where we had 16 procedures. The worst time of my time at Metropolitan was when I had right shoulder rotator cuff repair. I was only allowed to stay home only a week, it was time that inventory was due, so with my arm in a shoulder immobilizer with pain, I made sure inventory was done.
some of the people were very nice.
no lunch break until all of the procedures were done.
Metropolitan Methodist Hospital was a very busy place to work.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 27, 2013
A day at work was extremely busy. I learned that it is a very fast paced work environment, you work short staffed most of the time. Most of the managers are extremely busy as well and don't have much time for communicating with the staff employees. Dealing with the diversity of the employees Best part of that job was going home.
