The pay is horrible
WELLSTAR does not pay nurses for their years of experience. A nurse with 15 years of experience will be paid the same as a new grad. They have a high turn over rate because of this

Lack of leadership in rehab
Old school rehab medical director and rehab leadership are behind the times and do not advance programming or support staff. It’s status quo here. The upside is, this is a level 2 trauma center so you get exposed to various diagnoses which is stimulating.

Run don’t walk
This company is only out for number one They treat employees poorly The benefits are a joke The pension is gone They will cut hours and make you use your own PTO Managers don’t care Directors and AVPs ignore the problems This is not the place anyone wants to come to now We are not centered around people care just executive care. I truly feel that this company does not care about their staff.

Independent Aide
I love being a hospice Aide for wellstar the nurses help you out teach you things like what there doing during patient care when you run into them you can always ask for help if you dont know something and they always push you to go back to school the upper management is cool too but co workers can be very lazy and get passes because they been there longer the pay is where the problem comes in
could be good if

Inclusive workplace, great staff!
Enjoyed every bit of the job, management operated an open door policy. However, I wish there was a lot of communication regarding roles and assignments, nonetheless, it is a great place to work at.

That Wellstar needs a lot of work on the racial climate within the hospital. Management is terrible, and horizontal bullying happens thru out.
That Wellstar needs a lot of work on the racial climate within the hospital. Management is terrible, and horizontal bullying happens thru out. The hard workers work harder, and those that snitch and kiss up are the ones promoted.

I have worked at WellStar for most of my career. The work have been challenging and rewarding. It is a great place to do what you went to school for versus being a glorified knob turner..

Fast Paced with Great Benefits
Working with Wellstar was a wonderful opportunity to gain insight into the nursing field. It is very fast paced and often calls for hard labor. However, The benefits are competitive as well as pay.

Nobody is on the same page.
I worked in one of the medical group offices and I was was the newbie with people that had been there for years. They all bullied and alienated me and I got no real direction on my job duties, I wasn't entirely sure what was expected of me and if I had questions, there was nobody to answer them. They waited until I messed up then got me fired.

Good company but limitations
Overall good company but with all the bad lately, they have not valued their employees like they should. Taking away hours and making their employees take PTO or no pay is not fair when others get paid to sit at home.
Pros
People
Cons
They don't look out for their employees

They don't pay MA's that well
There is no room for growth
They promise promotions that never come. Too many Indians and not enough chiefs. Room for growth but not quite there yet.

Could Be Better.
At one point, I praised WellStar on being a great company. The company has shown me through this crisis that the employees are not a main focus. Favoritism, fraternization & racism plague this health system. Diversity in management is needed.

I enjoyed working at Wellstar.
They're flexible and always keep you informed every month about what's going on in the hospital. I bonded with some co workers and even the doctors. Everyone knows everyone and it's a good feeling to be recognized for your hard work.

NO Advancement programs
I been at Wellstar since 2003 and I don't feel like I advance at all .The pay raises are not good 25 cents for a raise is nothing .I have invested a lot of time in wellstar and feel like I can't survive here they don't pay good No advancement programs in the hospital, If you do wanna go to another unit sometime you fear your application might get blocked by your boss,or just wanna hold you back

Underpays & No cultural views
Very underpaid & poor ethical views & stance. Company sucks and all about taking away from the employees, lots of favoritism & authority abuse. Most staff are like family very genuine people, but the way the company conduct overall makes this a 1 star job.

Productive and Fun work place (Douglasville)
My only issue I noticed that with the diversity, some people were able to get away and do things that some would get in trouble or fired for. Loved my doctors and coworkers. You just have to watch management.
