Well paid but is it worth it?

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Pay is fair, upper management is terrible, decisions and changes (job duties, schedule, patient load, etc) are made without communication and you're supposed to just figure it out I guess. Benefits are horrible, almost to the point of paying cash price for all services. Retirement basically non-existent, Also they don't pay their bills to vendors, locums, nursing travel agency , etc so there's the ever looming concern for closure

Avoid working here. Avoid Steward in general. For profit hospital system and it shows. All they care about is money not patients. Management is unhelpful and there is too many of them getting paid big bucks so they can’t pay anyone else a livable wage.

Productive and fun

Not enough staff, Building needs updating, equipment needs replacement. Culture is good, people are nice, and work as a team. Scheduling and call can be very burdensome.

Just ok lots of layoffs - job changed with no notice- layoffs cause work outsourced to other countries - salary is low compared to other places you can work

Okay Place

It’s not the best and it’s not the worst. There’s definitely things to improve upon but that’s how it is everywhere. Lots of opportunities for overtime.

Avoid Steward Healthcare

Con: Poor management at all levels particularly the C-suite. An unresponsive HR department.No room for advancement. Pay does not commensurate with experience or increased job responsibilities. Consistent lack of supplies due to credit holds. Outdated equipment. Understaffed.Pro: Coworkers are amazing considering the consistent shortfalls. Summary: Look elsewhere

Grat fun with a wonderful group of professional, dedicated people.

What is the best part of working at the company?I worked with the integration team. Great group of people and managers. We had a great time, and we were also extremely productive. Loved it! What is the most stressful part about working at the company?When I was laid off. I was caught totally off guard. My manager and Director were also laid off a long with over a hundred other people. I was planning on staying at Steward until retirement. I was very disappointed in the loss of the job and all my relationships. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Professional, laid back, Patient focused, employees were highly regarded. Until we were laid off without notice or severance. What is a typical day like for you at the company?We were not micromanaged. We would come in perform our work, attend our meetings and update our management team as needed. Good Gig.

Good co workers

Sub par needs are met. Need a lot more staff and better management and higher pay, needs to respect employees more. Also communication goes a long way.

Floated all the time

Poor leadership, drama, gossip and will float new grads right off orientation. No sense of teamwork. Pros pay and pto.Wouldn't recommend to new grad nurses.

Good teamwork & respect

As a chaplain I was included in care planning and generally called upon to provide spiritual support at appropriate times. Longer-tenured medical staff were more likely to collaborate with chaplains because they were influenced more by their time as part of the Arch Diocese of Boston in the early decades.


Small enough to know everyone. Community hospital variety of needs.


It's tough to be a smaller community hospital these days.

Do not work in Tempe.

It started out great, but learned it would be the lowest pay offered in the valley. I was not a new grad, but given even lower than new grad pay because I was considered entry level. Still I was excited to get my feet in the door. This happiness slowly dissipated as I realized how horrible this hospital was. Unprofessional surgeons, nurses, and administrators. I hated every day I had to go in but would always do what I could. It slowly turned into making maybe 6 hours a week due to low census. I finally had enough of not making enough money and once I hit my one year mark I decided it was time to leave. In the one year I was there I saw multiple people come and go only to learn later that they had put in their notices beforehand but ended up getting forced resignations so they wouldn’t have to pay out their PTO. I put in a one week notice because I was afraid they would force me to resign early as well but I finished my week no issues. Today I find out that because I didn’t put in two weeks for my notice I will not be receiving my PTO. I never took days off, never used my PTO, all my days off from work were low census days. I am so sad and upset and I realize I wasted an entire year of my life for this place when I could have moved on sooner.


Had one manager who cared about me


Horrible management, cafeteria food is awful, clique-y nurses, lowest paying hospital in the valley

I wouldn't work there even if the last place on earth.

What is the best part of working at the company?What can I say- some managers/directors should not be in charge! Mainly St Dominic's Case Management and HR. Don't know how these people hit their jobs with the horrible people skills they exhibit. Would I worked with them? Never ever. Would I recommend SAH to a place to work? The short staffing is hidden so beware of your choice to work. Is there Teamwork- no again some manager/directors for not give direction to staff like they should. Caring? Nope-saw minimal. Just because they have a Leapfrog award means NOTHING without good leaders.What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Lack of leadership or poor leadership. Shirt staffing and minimal care.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?No teamwork- it's a fend for yourself culture.What is a typical day like for you at the company?Well I don't work there because I was paid salary but worked 9+ hrs a day and no lunch or break!

Good pay and benefits, good management

I enjoy working here. Direct line management is great and communicative. Pay is on pat or better than others around and hours and scheduling are great.

Love working here. Love the staff I work with. Management is good, but they do sometimes care more about the money than the patients, as all for profit hospitals do.

Great Place to get into Health care, Short staffed

I got my foot into the health care field as a sitter here. It was a great place to start years ago but like every where else after covid; they will regularly be short staffed especially on nights. The benefits and health insurance are good but the pay should be higher.

management is the worst and you do not get properly trained there because of the lack of staff. every one eventually leaves because the pay is bad and the bosses make your life miserable
Was this review helpful?


Too many responsibilities, not enough staff. Co workers call out sick and are not repalaced. Patient care suffers as a result. Administration cares but not supported by company
Was this review helpful?

Unethical across the board and very very poor leadership

Those in charge lost or NEVER had any morale or ethical values!!! Especially, the "Man BEHIND the Curtain"!! It was a blessing in disguise to leave there so that I may begin advocating for what is RIGHT!


Connecting with those who actually care about patient care and who haven't lost their integrity!


Continuing to see the systems fail vulnerable populations
