Registered Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – August 27, 2013
I worked at OU right out of school and it was one of the best places because you see such varying cases from day to day. My department (Respiratory) was very good about working around what kind of schedule I needed (long commute and new mom) and also very supportive about giving me a place and adequate time for pumping (again, new mom). If we were to move back to that area I would definitely consider working there again. However, heads up it is a VERY busy hospital and you will have a big workload. For this reason, they have a very high turnover rate and so the shifts were often short a couple people at least. To make up for it though, everyone is really great about helping their peers and always available to answer any questions you might have!
PATIENT TRANSPORTER (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – December 31, 2016
Very unstructured and disorganized. Staff does not work well together. Very stressful work environment. It is a great job for pre-medical students to be a transporter, but I would not recommend working here for very long.

Medical Technologist (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – August 28, 2016
The downtown campus is basically a snake's den, with a very unfriendly and non supportive environment ! It was an unpleasant experience, especially with no compassion to my late wife's last days on Earth, and my desire and compassion to take care of her !! She went tom Heaven before I had to give notice to care for my dying son, barely 2 months after she died. People can be so cruel !!!
RN circulator (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – August 10, 2016
This staff/management will run you to the ground. Make you stay way over your shift without compensation. The pay is no where near competitive. I left and got a $5 raise from another company.. Thier benefits are horrible. Trust me. You don't want to work here. They offer no discount for food in the cafeteria. Always understaffed. You will never see the managers unless you are getting disciplined.
Love working with the public and it's a educational facility.
Patient s (Current Employee) – O – November 11, 2015
I've enjoyed working with this company, I'm a people person so I get to meet a lot of different people and this position has taught me a lot about customer service and how to please customer's so it gives your business a reson to keep peolpe returning.
We get to do payroll deduct for lunches and the cafeteria.
I have to take a shulttle bus to my car every afternoon.
Excellent company, able to gain a wide variety of work experience
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Edmond, OK – November 10, 2015
Excellent company, able to gain a wide variety of work experience, and you are allowed to do lots of over time through out the year! Need to work weekends? They pay you extra for weekends and more so for any night shift!
RN (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – October 26, 2015
Working with the physicans and residents is great. Good teaching environment, but good nurses show ran away!!! There are a few managers and directors that honestly , you have to wonder how they keep their job or got it in the first place! Examples....extremely high turn over rates in every department. Lack of value or honesty from administration. I mean how can a mother be the supervisor over her daughter in a department? How can the cath lab manager (highly unqualified) continue the clearly psychotic and vindictive behavior, become an "interm director"? Yes, there are several people that are protected all the way up thru administration! Talk to human resources, why they dont care. So if you want to be harrassed, lied to, or put in the situation to be stripped of your license or enjoy being lead by incompetence, you can apply at OU medical. If you value your livelihood and license.... Run away fast!
Excellent teaching environment
High turn over . complete disconnect from managers and directors.
Staff RN- Interventional Radiology (Full-time) (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – October 25, 2015
Managed patients daily by performing conscious sedation and their pain pre, intra, and post-operatively. I, learned a variety of skills, especially accurate performance of conscious sedation. I was pleased with management and was treated well. I enjoyed my co-workers who were mentors as well. The hardest part of the job was being on-call with a 30 minute response time. The most enjoyable was everything else.
Great repport with your patients and the physicians.
Patient Service Representative (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – October 2, 2015
Before you consider OU Medical Center, look at other area hospitals. This place does not give paid holidays unless you have the PTO to cover said holiday. They give you false hope and management is not all to great. Certain people get away with so much but yet you get told what your doing wrong by someone who knows nothing of anything! I would not recommend this place to anyone! I work in the clinics and my goodness they do not care how will you treat the patient. if the patient has a problem with you, you're just wrong in the situation, no matter what!
Management, no paid holidays, no room for advancement, inconsiderate of employees, high turn over
