I really enjoyed working at this hospital. I worked in multiple roles. Most of management was nice and approachable. Some of the positions I worked in lacked team work but once we weeded through the thick and thin everything ran smoothly. Pay was pretty competitive as well. In m last position though I was branded the 'assistant manager' without the compensation. It was a difficult task and also beyond my credentials. Overall though I love the experience I was able to gain from working at the institution.
Pharmacy Team Leader (Former Employee) – Temple, Tx. – January 7, 2013
I worked for this place for 18 yrs. Dedicated and hardworking. New management comes in and terminates me. I did make some bad decisions, but management never communicated with me. So apparently she wanted me out of the picture. Asked hr for help. They figured they could replace 2 people for 1 of me. Not a great company to work for. really devasting.
The doctors & nurses are very sweet, patient & helpuf
Patient Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Marble Falls – September 20, 2013
Very very unorganized place to work for! Not enough team work or professionalism at all! Was there for a little shy if a year & I had 3 different Boss's!!! You must watch you back at the times bc employees(just a few) will back stab you or hurt you if it has do with out if work activities or problems that occurred at of work! I was warned many times but gave them the benefit I the doubt! The Boss is very unprofessional, doesn't give encouragement or praise when needed, last but not least shes never around much to see what we could change to making the patients come first. But if you can continue to work for them, be just a number, no raises or anything, then go for it!!
Benefits/an hour lunch!
Pay is horrible, favoritism, don't put patients first, so quick to turn patients away who have enough money pay BUT need to be seen.
This company does not put employees first in my opinion in many aspects. Benefits and compensation are two of the reasons. My work schedule is M-F 7:30 to 4:30 with a one hour lunch. Leadership is lacking in my department which I don't blame my boss. She had no management/personnel experience previous to current position. My co-workers are great people but there is too much drama. We have a high turnover rate and it seems to stem from this problem. My work is very repetitive as is other positions in this department so there really is nothing hard about it.
PSS & BILLING (Former Employee) – Hill Country Region – June 3, 2014
S&W does not value their employees. The pay is terrible. We are all on poverty level. It is really sad that the biggest healthcare facility in the state of Texas doesn't give raises. I have been here 6 yrs with 1 raise & 1 cut in pay. I can't wait to move out of this area & work for a company that values their employees.
Rad tech (Former Employee) – Llano hospital – August 13, 2014
Dont expect to see your manager or for she/he to do anything for you. They promote the butt kissers, and yessers. Expect to work overtime every week. Be on call every week and expect the manager to be suprised that you have a life outside of work when you tell them you cant work. Will learn somewhat but if your are the smartest person in your department then don't expect to learn anything other than new ways to get frustrated with management. Some co-workers will throw you under the bus when ever they can you will find out real quick who those people are. Hardest part of comming to work is knowing that its is not going to get any better any time soon or in the future. Most of the staff is enjoyable. They all feel the same way and you can at least vent to each other during down time.
Staff Nurse - Field RN (Former Employee) – Home Care - Temple, Tx – January 2, 2013
Ring of management and staff team leaders are corrupt. Certain team leaders are allowed to mistreat and harass other staff members, even after complaints to upper management. It is well known within the Home Care Department that you must always watch your back. Management will team up on a dime and feed you to the wolves. Having worked at Scott & White for many years and in a variety of departments, I always enjoyed the people I worked with. Home Care was the only exception to this and it was solely because of those few in management and in leadership positions. And unless new leadership replaces that which exists, I would strongly suggest looking elsewhere within Scott & White for employment.
too too many chiefs to report to, impossible making them all happy...they all want something different, very inconsistent
Working for Scott&White Is not the best .Starting with management is horrible u do not have any place of opportunity,You never get recognized unless of course its something bad then they go all out on you . Management is never available to talk to for any type og problems and of course unless you belong to one of there :CHURCHES" or anything of that nature then you will definately be promoted or get a better position then anyone else.Theres a bunch of kiss assers and Lots of drama that the own manager creates .I DO NOT RECOMEND this job at all they take advantage of you .
Admin Asst/Pt Service Spec (Former Employee) – Temple, TX – September 2, 2012
I worked at Scott and White for a total of 17 years. I loved all the different jobs I had. There was plenty of opportunity to grow, learn different jobs, etc., or stay where you were if you enjoyed your job. However, when it came time for layoffs, there was no rhyme or reason who they chose, other than most of the time, they chose the ones who'd been there the longest and laid them off. This last time, I was one of them.
Billing and Follow up clerk (Former Employee) – Temple, TX – February 10, 2014
the boss in the Billing and Follow up area fired me three weeks before I had to be out for a MUCH NEEDED ankle surgery, I was thinking I needed a week after then I could be at my desk with my foot propped up, unfortunately they saw it differently. I am curious why train me to do five different jobs then just let me go? So now I have a surgery this week and I am still trying to find a job for afterwards. It's hard enough trying to find a place to live, money to feed my son, and other headaches... But to find out I am not allowed to return to my place of employment because I was honest and told them about my surgery is insane. My boss' boss wanted a letter from the VA (in Temple) saying how long I would be out following my surgery- I can't make the VA doctor stop what he/she was doing and type out a letter for me. And since I was only given a week, originally these two people were only going to give me three days. I have a broken ankle people. Its not easy for me to RUN anywhere to hop, skip and jump to get you a note from someone who is his/her own secretary.
Birthday calendar, great team environment
Small monitors for working with numbers. Backstabbers.
Doctor (Former Employee) – Waco, Tx – January 10, 2014
Now that this facility is S&W, it will only get worse. The Trauma team here is full of great people who bust the tails off everyday. The job is very demanding and rewarding at the same time but do not count on any pats on the back from the Director. The Director here will take credit for everything someone here does and goes running to lets everyone know "they did it" when they had nothing to do with it. Big ego +power trip= disaster waiting to happen. Overall enjoyed this place just could not take the front that the director showed and watching good people get walked all over.
Data entry (Former Employee) – Temple, TX – August 23, 2013
Worked reversing and reposting in their accounting area. Was expected to learn in 2 1/2 weeks. Unfortunately many of those in that particular dept are leaving; I can totally understand why. Their systems are antiquated and very far behind. I was not given the attention necessary and did not fit their mold. I truly expected more from this company. Extremely disappointed.

I have nightmares about 1 minute over occurances and never leaving the building, just sitting at my computer waiting for my kronos to pop up in order to time stamp. wake up 3 times a night screaming "I'm going to get an occurance"
