Assessed patients. Gave out medications. Did admissions. Delegated duties to mental health techs as required. Used deescalating techniques with violent patients. Learned to multitask and communicate with both patients and staff members during good and difficult times. The hardest part of the job was finishing my duties while trying to beat the clock – more... in an environment that demanded multitasking while being emotional and physically demanding at times. The most enjoyable part of the job was the camaraderie among staff members. – less
Controlled over 6 different facilities on a daily basis. Kept all unidentified accounts at or near zero as possible. Requested refunds as necessary. Worked on many different projects as assigned. Kept in close contact with the facility Controller and Admitting Clerk. Posted Bank deposits, EFTS, ACH and Credit Card payments.
The company is great, but this varies greatly depending on your team.
Receptionist/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Dallas, TX – April 5, 2014
Pros: lots of free food, great interaction between c-staff and rest of company, growth potential, centrally located, great pay.
Cons: long hours, unrealistic expectations, some (not all) really messy and catty coworkers
My position as a receptionist really allowed me to get my feet wet in a multitude of different departments. I can honestly say that this is a great company. They are expanding every day and always looking for new hires all over the country. I really enjoyed most all of my coworkers and really enjoyed getting to interact with all of the guests and most – more... of the C-level staff. The opportunity for growth is there; permitting you don't have a power hungry, unprofessional, messy, and downright cowardly human being of a manager. If at all possible, avoid working under the Meeting Services or Admin departments. The director over these departments will belittle you, never admit mistakes and consistently expect way more of you than is humanly possible in very short amounts of time. Then the stressful time constraints will be blamed on SVP's instead of this person just admitting that they forgot to tell you to complete the task sooner (which happened VERY often). My final comment about this position is that if you do end up taking it, know that there is a severe lack of transparency, honesty and communication within the department. Wont get into detail as to how or why, but if these things are at all important in your job search, this is probably not the best place to be. – less
Dr. Tejani, OBGYN- Medical Assistant Externship (Former Employee), Los Alamitos, CA – March 28, 2014
Pros: free lunches when reps bring samples
Cons: unsanitary, messy office
So I externed here for my externship for school. Ugh, let me tell you, Dr. Tejani is not the most pleasant person to work with. She is so stern and timid, I hardley learned anything by her, but more of on my own. The medical assistants are pretty rude. One of them was filling up prescriptions on a downlow (with no doctor's approval) for another co-worker. – more... (It least dont do it infront of a student). Oh and its an OBGYN office. The tools used for (lets just say..) "down there" where old and rusted, even if they were cleaned properly and put in the autoclave. Not to mention everything was out of date, old school and I felt like I would never go there as a patient.
Its a mess, unsanitary and unprofessional. Not to mention Dr. Tejani is not a very good instructor as she had no patients for me as a student. Making mistakes where not in her book as I would get told as if I were a paid employee. – less
Registered Nurse (RN) (Former Employee), Birmingham, AL – March 27, 2014
Pros: brilliant, experienced nurses and physicians will assist you in developing skills.
Cons: hostile managers, no job security, mandatory overtime, poor scheduling flexibility, bullying from upper management
This hospital could be one of the best because there are some amazing nurses and doctors working there. The management issue is serious and it needs to be addressed to prevent good, experienced nurses form pursuing careers elsewhere.
Register Nurse on SCS/Med Telemetry (Current Employee), West Palm Beach, FL – March 26, 2014
A typical day at work consist of applying nursing knowledge, nursing skills, critical thinking, and communication with physician and other interdisciplinary. I have learned to ask for assistance and maintain adequate time management. Management is helpful in ensuring tools and support are available to coworker are friendly and helpful. The hardest part – more... of my job is staying up all night for 12 hours. The most enjoyable part of my job is caring for my patients, providing competent and safe care. – less
Case Manager (Former Employee), Delray Medical Center – March 24, 2014
Working at Tenet was a pleasure. I was there for nearly 10 yrs. I did get a chance to get into Case Management by transfering to another Tenet hospital, which I was thankful for. There is no perfect place to work but Tenet expected and held their employees to high standards. I am thankful for the time I was with them.
Productive and Safe workplace for all employees and staff members.

Nurse Assistant (Current Employee), Placentia, CA – March 8, 2014
Pros: helpful staff
Cons: it can get really busy.
A lot of help from the staff. Co-workers are very helpful. The hardest part of the job is when it gets really busy, for example when there are a lot of call lights going off. The most enjoyable part of the job is when everyone works together as a team.
Unit Secretary (Former Employee), Birmingham, AL – March 6, 2014
This job was like family and didn't mind going at all i really miss this job and will always remember this job worked there for ten years and was very caught by suprise when they closed the carraway hospital
Excellent workplace, provider of quality care and community service
Director, HIMS (Former Employee), St. Louis, MO – March 4, 2014
Tenet Healthcare is an excellent organization. The Saint Louis University Hospital provides care and community service in accordance with the Judeo-Christian Mission. I am proud to have served in this fine hospital. I was saddened when my position, along with many of it's middle management team, was eliminated. I would be thrilled to go back to work – more... there. – less
