Cardiac Monitor Tech (Current Employee), Eureka, CA – May 13, 2014
St Joseph Hospital is a great place to work. Every time you clock in you don't know what's going to be thrown at you. You might have an easy night or a very challenging night, but either way your employees help you out and make sure they are there for you no matter what.
food server (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZ – May 12, 2014
Pros: free lunch
Cons: long hours
I enjoyed my time at this job site, though it was short. The management was very well and the co-workers helped when I had questions. I would take food to different floors and serve patients. This was a great job opportunity and I was sad when my assignment there ended.
I was a Patient Transporter. A lot of the Clinical staff look down on you as being uneducated and in a entry level job. In the transport department, The manager is a power hungry "im better than you" wannabe dictator. His evening coordinator has no brain and just jumps as high as he says and lies to employees and then sells them down the river. Ive – more... seen that happen in other departments as well, someone tells you something then denies it to management. The attitude of we can hire someone else is very clear unless you are a doctor.
The one plus was you meet some good co-workers. – less
employed by St Joseph (Current Employee), Houston, TX – April 25, 2014
Cons: lack of staffing can not keep up with volume of work
The hospital in general due to the corporate culture has reduced staffing in all areas. If there is a lack of staff then there is no quality of care with clients and patients. And they wonder why patients don't come to this facility. The lack of staffing and the volume of work has made it all consuming and has caused decrease of quality to be performed. – more... There is no work/life balance. No overtime to finish a job which is causing staff to work off the clock because they want to do their job and do it right. Most staff members are unhappy. – less
ER Health Unit Coordinator (Current Employee), Chippewa Falls, WI – April 22, 2014
Pros: flexibility, benefits
Cons: no breaks
A hospital that cares about the community that it serves and the colleagues that it employs. Administration puts an emphasis on safety for patients and employees. Even though we are a smaller facility, we see our fair share of traumas, and our staff handles them with urgency, efficiency, and caring. The hardest part of the job is knowing or not knowing – more... when that emergency is coming. Communication is key in handling those emergencies and our staff communicates very well. – less
