Microbiology Specialist (Current Employee) – Covington, LA – August 20, 2017
I enjoy being a medical technologist. I have a great relationship with infection prevention and our infectious disease doctors. My job is challenging and rewarding. I enjoy my co-workers. They are easy to get along with, almost like family. Microbiology provides a new challenge every day. I also enjoy being involved with the antibiotic stewardship committee. I also enjoy participating in the infection prevention committee. There are several opportunities to participate in committees and non-testing activities. The pay is very competitive for the area.
My challenge is with my immediate supervisor. I've had to question her integrity on several occasions. I can't work with someone when there is no trust.
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Covington, LA – June 19, 2017
Not as stressful versus retail. Hospital has a different type of stress .If you do not like staying in the Pharmacy you can go on the floors. Versus retail you are stuck in a small area. You can also learn with IV and the different medications in the hospital.
Tenured Employee (Current Employee) – Covington, LA – May 8, 2017
The relationships and culture of this organization make it the place you want to call home for the rest of your career. The only reasons to leave are for money and career advancement. If you love what you do and just want to do it well for people whose hearts are in the right place, this is just the place to land and take root. If you're looking to advance, build a career and achieve great acclaim, this is not that kind of environment.
Seemed like a great place at first, then I met my Supervisors
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Covington, LA – April 7, 2017
I was only here for a couple days as a new Phlebotomist. I had heard great things about this hospital and I have always come here for my medical needs. The head of the department seemed very nice, then I worked full days at the out patient clinic and my trainer was anything but supportive. She had nothing but negative things to say about the hospital. She basically made me terrified to work there. Her and the other trainer were looking for other jobs while training me and were warning me about how bad the pay is compared to other places and about how it is impossible to advance. I was hired on as Part-time but was told I was expected to work Full-time hours without full-time pay and benefits.
good benefits if you are full-time
everyone hated their job. Bad environment for new employees

S Wallace, LPN (Former Employee) – Covington, LA 70433 – February 22, 2017
For over 5 years I worked at this hospital, awesome is all I can say. If I could pick this facility up and move it and move it, I would. When I moved to North Louisiana, I have often missed my co-workers and the teamwork of the staff of 2 East. More seasoned nurses would educated the fresher nurses when I particular case occurred as well as some physicians. Management encouraged staff to improve and increase their knowledge and go back to school and offered incentive programs.
incentive programs, teamwork, atmosphere, many more

St. Tammany is a wonderful place to work. The hospital atmosphere is very welcoming the minute you enter the facility. The staff there are very friendly. They helped my acclimate to a new facility easily.

Everyday is a different experience. The hardest part about the job was working with the different types of personalities. The most enjoyable part is seeing the satisfactory ratings for my unit and knowing was able to meet my patient's needs
Assist the nursing staff (Current Employee) – Covington, LA – November 4, 2016
Overall STPH is a pretty nice place to work. The benefits and pay could be better. The night shift is always short staffed, but the staff always works with it. The staff is pretty good about always helping each other out and working as a team.
ED Coder (prn) (Former Employee) – Covington, LA – October 12, 2016
My work day was to punch in, sit quietly and read/code medical records. Management was great and she kept the work environment lively by having frequent pot lucks and meetings that were informative and fun.
Clerical (Current Employee) – Covington, LA – May 18, 2016
I thoroughly enjoyed working at Stph for several years until a change in our department management occurred. Our team worked very well together and even did things outside the office after hours for fun. When the new administrator started, this person basically started "cleaning house"...getting rid of awesome long time employees to hire friends/former co-workers that do mediocre work. Morale is at an all time low...employees feel as if they're walking on eggshells with all the closed door secret meetings. Supervisors treat employees in a condescending way. And don't even bother complaining to HR or the higher-ups because it's a shady deal all around & nothing ever gets done.
Benefits are good
Management is terrible, poor employee morale, poor pay scale
Cashier (Former Employee) – Covington, LA – May 5, 2016
Typical day a work was very busy which was great. I learned the importance of the patience. I put myself in there place of how I wanted to be treated. Management didn't listen nor did there care about the employees. Co-workers were great. The hardest part of the job was to have everything posted for that day. When i was released they hired 2 people for the position. But they wouldn't do it for me. I loved my job.
