Medical Records Clerk (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – January 5, 2018
Seton WAS a wonderful place to work until the parent company, Ascension, started outsourcing pretty much everything but nursing. All revenue cycle was outsourced to a company with a very dubious record (and which has already changed it's name since taking over Seton's revenue cycle). In the last few years, Seton became very top heavy....lots of high paid administrators while entire departments were sourced out to independent companies with lower wages and poor quality benefits.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – SMCA – January 16, 2018
No complaints only good things to say but I am tired of working the night shifts have worked the nightshift since 2004 and I am ready to give it up for day's with shorter hours so looing for a day job Monday to Friday's.
PCT/CNA (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – December 28, 2017
Worked in float pool while in nursing school, very flexible and understanding with staffing. Not a ton of feedback from the float pool manager so sometimes education and new policies were not communicated quickly
Radiologic Technologist (Former Employee) – Round Rock, TX – December 20, 2017
I wouldn't recommend working here in Imaging.
Cliquish work environment and no team players.
Imaging is understaffed to the point where you want to cry because you're getting called from 3 different places all wanting stat imaging and 1-2 of you have to rush between places to appease the doctors.
Management is VERY lacking in terms of support and helping out other staffers on high work load day. Coworkers that have been there about a year or more will slack off of work, take hour lunches, and the new hires or hard workers end up with the lazy one's work.
Also, if you're new its a sink or swim environment. Moreover, don't expect help from coworkers if its their time to leave in 30 mins (they wont stay over to help if it's swamped).
Plus, the pay doesn't match the amount of work you'll do (usually the job of 2+ people). You'll leave drained and you'll walk an avg. of 5 miles a day.
Job security, decent cafeteria, and good if you need experience starting out.
Cliques, lack of help, over worked, low pay, and stress
The pay is not appropriate for the amount of work you are expected to do. Management makes decisions based on numbers instead of what is in the best interest of the patient. Ever since the Ascension takeover our staffing, bonuses, and raises have been cut.
Registered Nurse; Full Time Employee (Former Employee) – Harker Heights, TX – December 16, 2017
Shifts are poorly staffed NO teamwork at all, you have to ask anytime you need any help and the other nurses are not gracious about it at all The nurses do the bare minimum Management seemed distant and uninformed
Check In Receptionist (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – December 12, 2017
Job title and what I did did not match. I did my job title one day a week and I know they had to do it to justify my lower pay for the title I was given, but asked to do work I should get paid more for. Lessen i learned and here is the warning, do not do a lot of work not in your description or apply for that possistion in the company. Get it in on paper and do not deviate.
Position hired for was good, but not what I did...
Registered Nurse - Emergency Department (Former Employee) – Harker Heights, TX – December 10, 2017
This hospital seemed very good at first with good pay and great benefits. As it turns out the hospital is a terrible place for long term employment. There is too much hostility and the nurses in charge will let patients treat their nurses however they please as long as the patient does not leave.
PATIENT ACCESS REP II/CLINICAL ASSISTANT III (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – December 5, 2017
Not adequate staffing to handle the acuity of mentally ill patients treated in the facility. Staff are often alone with dangerous patients. Lots of injuries to staff due to poor training and not enough staff. Used to love this job, then the administration changed, the staffing ratios changed and suddenly it became a dangerous place to be.
provides training to employees, you are able to advance, good benefits, work environment high stress, team players, pay is over all high compare to other hospitals. You are able to learn and see so much. Great for anyone who wants the full hospital experience.
high pay compare to others
high stress leveal due to type of patients you see. demanding of your time
Management continues to use the outdated, punitive, hierarchy of dunces techniques, making up their own rules as they go along. The doctors and line staff are being overrun by a nurse management bully culture led by the my-way-or-the-highway mentality of the narrow visioned director of nursing. SSC would never meet the Magnet Standards for excellence in nursing recognized by the Joint Commission as the gold standard for hospitals.
Upper Management will have turnover eventually, and good people will run SSC again.
Management is a gossipy rumor mill, corrupt and intimidating.
