The worst place for a sterile processing tech. Kingwood,TX
Sterile Processing Technician (Former Employee) – Kingwood, TX – May 19, 2016
The Kingwood, TX location for sterile processing is the worst. Your hired as full time days position, It's supposed to be an outpatient surgery center, but then all of a sudden, it's a hospita.. But you end up coming in at various hours. 630am, 800am, or 10am until whenever they are finished, which could be up to 2am. Yes, 2 in the morning. So you don't know when your getting off. It's like working as a Mover for a moving company. Your basically set up for failure. You work with one other full time person and maybe another PRN person to help with the overload of surgeries going on. The scrub techs blame their mishaps on you. Some are nice, But most are terrible. You are thrown under the bus all the time for everything that goes wrong with the instruments. They want you to be the Lead tech but they don't want pay you like a lead tech...16,50 an hour if your certified. Plus they talk to you like your a child. Very disrespectful. Even the cleaning crew that cleans the rooms after surgery are treated disrespectful . Beware. Oh and they are desperate, so go for your worth in pay if you decide to
Take the position. Good luck.
Benefiits, materials management staff are Awesome
