Patient Transporter (Former Employee) – Hoffman Estates, IL – May 10, 2018
when I worked at SAMC, it was one of the best jobs I ever had. I was treated with respect from coworkers to doctors. I rarely had any problems working there. I eventually left to move out of state, otherwise I would still be there.
RN (Former Employee) – Hoffman Estates, IL – April 3, 2018
Management was awful. Not supportive of staff. Threatened staff inappropriately on occasion. Co-workers were mostly great. Some Surgeons excellent and others with horrible behavior tolerated by Management.
Patient Care Technician (PCT) (Former Employee) – Hoffman Estates, IL – February 5, 2018
Short staffed at times, but plenty of working hours if you want them, good benefits, great experience. Management for my department was excellent and fair. A lot of team work there, plenty of staff take great pride in the work they do there
Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Hoffman Estates, IL – February 5, 2018
I worked for St. Alexius for over 20 years. They are an excellent health system. The hours I worked became difficult so i had to leave. Everyone in the ER worked as a team. Charge nurses were great. The acuity of patients became difficult at the end
My time at Saint Alexius Hospital was a great experience and I learned a lot from a lot from the job. This job educated me on things I did not know it also gave me safety tips and guides I'm cleaning cross-contamination Biohazard it was a great experience all together
Radiologic Technologist (Former Employee) – Hoffman Estates, IL – October 31, 2017
To work for st alexius is all about how much money you can make for them. It is no longer about taking care of the patients. Employees are cut at whim and seniority means nothing. Managers push to meet numbers meaning quotas so if you are not working at 100% then you send people home early so you uses up your pto to get your hours in for the pay period or you just take less pay. Not a good place to be able to make a living. Nothing good is ever told to anyone just what they did wrong! They also do not give equal pay to other facilities in the area. If you complain they say well leave you can be replaced!
Productive, Supportive Staff, Experience with various diagnoses
Staff Physical Therapist (Current Employee) – Hoffman Estates, IL – September 18, 2017
A typical day consists of 8-10 patients in various settings from Medical/Surgical to Stroke, Neurological and Orthopedic diagnoses. A great place to get experience with various diagnoses and team collaboration atmosphere+
Caterer/Baker/Barista (Former Employee) – Hoffman Estates, IL – September 2, 2017
Management in Food & Nutrition is lackluster, at best. Employees with good work ethic will find it difficult to work alongside other employees who are just there to receive a paycheck, and allowed to continue with poor work performance. Corporate benefits are good, compensation is adequate so long as you push for your raises.
This may have once been a good place to work, however that is no longer the case. Management is horrible and corrupt. They turn a blind eye to corruption and Officer misconduct within the department on a regular basis. Pay, benefits and hours continued to be reduced. The company as a whole is in dire straits. Just look at their financials. I wouldn't recommend this environment to anyone.
Corruption, favoritism, very poor management, layoffs
Receptionist/scheduler and a super user (Former Employee) – Bismarck, ND – March 16, 2017
This was the best job I have ever had. Sadly they were cutting hours back and I was moving to a new town. They treat you right and it is easy to move up in the company. I would recommend anyone to work here. If they had a position in my new town I'd go apply for it. Seriously the best place ever!!
