Fast Paced
PRN Medical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Pensacola, FLMarch 29, 2018
This job is very fast paced, however the people you work with keep the work interesting. The hardest part is trying to help distraunt patients and the most enjoyable part is helping everybody.

Spineless hca robotic management
Registration (Former Employee) –  Hudson,FlMarch 10, 2018
Don't bother to have a life if you work for HCA.or HCA Shared Services..
They take advantage of your good nature and work ethic to a good job. They work you til you drop and til you cant give anymore. They dont do anything unless it benefits management. Forget if you need time off for an appointment. You will be told NO, there isnt anyone to cover you. They tell you your request is just a request.so forget work life balance. If you are lucky to get the time off you need, you are made to feel SO guilty by other staff members that feel they are picking up your slack because they have to work harder. Coworkers dont care about each other either, cut throat to throw you under the bus, this used to be such a FUN place to work but no one has the time to even say hello anymore. If you are saying hello to another your manager asks you why aren't you working. You are told
you have to speed up, or you are going too slow, especially the new hires who are trying to do a good job. Always under scrutiny to be accurate and perfect.Management constantly reminds workers the department is fully staffed but yet everyone is working their fingers to the bone, tired often coming in sick and working. Made to feel guilty if you call in sick,you don't get a regular 15 min break only your 1/2 hr lunch while every other department takes their lunch and BREAK.. You get spoken to like you are a child in a condescending tone, When you bring up an issue like staffing , you will be told "maybe you just cant do this job anymore" basically saying "there"s the DOOR" You will leave stressed out and sometimes
  more... so upset you do not want to come back. I have worked for them 20 plus years. I actually had to pump myself up with a pep talk before I started my shift. They want you to bend over backwards for their staffing issues but God forbid they come to your department to pitch in and lend a hand when its off the charts busy. Management thinks they are ABOVE coming in to work a menial shift. They FORGET where they came from once they have moved up and have been promoted. You are expected to "PLAY THEIR GAME" become one of their compliant robots. Oh and don't even try to contact your boss on a weekend they NEVER answer their phone. They wont let you try and better yourself, Management keeps you where THEY want you to work. They do whatever is GOOD for them to make their lucrative bonuses. What staff receives, which YOU BUST YOUR TAIL FOR will get you some groceries and gas. Management seriously needs to be overhauled they have no clue how to manage, no communication between them, they turn situations around to benefit the bottom line. They DON'T value their tenured employees with seniority either who have given their lives to their career. I have seen them all go one by one. If they can find the slightest opening to get rid of you, they will .. DO NOT TRUST THE SMILING FACES. They simply DO NOT CARE.  less

Not a safe place to work
Emergency Room Nurse (Former Employee) –  Brandon, FLMarch 7, 2018
You would put your license at risk working here. The company states they care about customers but it is a for profit company. All they care about is the turn around. It is dangerous.
Pros
some of the coworkers
Cons
everything else

Business First, Health Care provider Second
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Brandon, FLFebruary 10, 2018
Brandon Regional is like many HCA hospitals, they make decisions to please their shareholders.

- Nursing turnover is high and the majority of staff is made up of new grads.
- many unnecessary treatments/tests performed on patients
- Management is quick to cut staff and slow to call in for help/hire additional personnel.
- lack of equipment and hospital is littered with broken beds
-Corporate structure makes it difficult for direct manager to implement positive changes (hire staff, stand up for their staff..)


Overall, the culture is very poor. It starts with upper management continuous pressure to maximize profits and show a lack of respect to their staff and patients.

Worst place to work
MRI Technologist (Former Employee) –  Hudson, FLFebruary 6, 2018
Working in the imaging department I can tell you is the worst possible thing. The people are cutthroat it is very clicky and no one has your back. They overwork you, they expect you to completely give up your life when they are busy but your hours are cut every chance they get when it’s slow. The only thing that Company cares about is making money. They are always understaffed and I feel like it’s almost dangerous for the patient. The best choice I made was to find another place to work.

Worked hard with no positive feedback
MLT (ASCP) (Former Employee) –  McKinney, TXJanuary 17, 2018
Worked hard and woked overtime when asked. Management
never came around and said you we doing a good job.
Never received a bonus. There was a high turnover of
employees. Two of the department managers were rude and
had very poor people and management skills. We were happy when
they had a day off or went on vacation. Health benefits were
expensive. You would be wise not to work for HCA.
Pros

Great Union
RN (Current Employee) –  Sarasota, FLNovember 14, 2017
As part of the union agreement. The staffing is more fair and the pay increases are better. New managers on most floors also help with morale. The CNO is hard core, but will be fair.

Quality department rocks
Sepsis Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Inverness, FLOctober 16, 2017
I worked with great people in the quality department. The role was demanding and unfortunately there was no backup for me when taking time off. There were plans to train someone as backup, but that did not happen

CHS improved the structure of the company when they acquired HCA
Manager (Former Employee) –  Venice, FLOctober 14, 2017
Many employees felt that their remarks on surveys were not heard.
During summer months there was discontent when hours were reduced and during season the workload could be overwhelming. There was a gap in bringing on new hires to accommodate the busy times.

Run for your life
Former member (Former Employee) –  Hudson, FLOctober 13, 2017
I worked for this helll hole for 12 years, the past year was the worst ever, they have horrible upper and middle management. The company keeps taking and taking till you have nothing left, the new Coo has a Napoleon complex and so does the director of plant operations, You are threaten with your job, on a daily basis, Evs director is just as bad if not worse. THIS WAS ONCE A GREAT PLACE TO WORK. Now it has gotten so bad that I need Xanax to walk through the doors. Do yourself a favor, and stay away from HCA. Management is trained to walk all over you, you are nothing but a number to them. Everyone is afraid for their job, No one is safe.

Registered Nurse-Med Surg (Former Employee) –  Port Charlotte, FL 33952October 10, 2017
The nurses are severely understaffed. Acuity was never measured and you would feel like your drowning in excess work. Only good thing about working there was all the experience I got.

Registered Nurse / Relief Charge Nurse (Current Employee) –  Port Charlotte, FLOctober 6, 2017
Working for HCA has been one of the best opportunities I have had. There is a dedicated caring family feel among the staff. There are plenty of opportunities for advancing your career. Staff is treated with respect, and the job is very rewarding.
