    Great co-workers, terrible management

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    great co-workers, you get paid base pay plus $1 for 2nd shift plus $2 more on weekends, you get paid at all. long lunch breaks, co workers typically cover for each other

    Cons

    doesnt matter what you do or how you do it, its never right. work never ends, trays stacked on top of trays, doesnt help that 1st shift (not everyone, but mostly) slacks alot leaving most of the work for 2nd and 3rd shift. management is unreasonable and illogical and sets impossible standards. scrub techs and nurses lose instruments and can never find them when needed, and they expect us to solve problems for them although they dont correspond to us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire a supervisor whos not lazy and knows what theyre doing

    Pros

    Training and experience are good

    Cons

    I have experienced the most horrible degrading rudeness and disrespect from older nurses in this company. I was a new nurse and I have never in my life met rude and inconsiderate people until now. Some are ok but lots of back stabbing and traitors. Management only believes what the older nurses say, new nurses appear to be lying or incompetent in their eyes. I feel degraded. Lots of drama and lies. People lying to each other. One time nurses made up stories just to get another nurse terminated. Other nurses acts like a boss and can dictate or make up stories manager would not even check what's really going on down their office. Nurses treats people under cheap government insurances poorly with disrespect! Cant take it anymore that's why I left!!!

    Current Employee - Laboratory Technician in San Antonio, TX

    Pros

    Mainly the people, most are very friendly. The hours that are offered are also very nice. Since I am still in school during the mornings, I work second shift without any issues.

    Cons

    Due to a hiring freeze there are some days that we are shorthanded in the lab. This same reason also means that its easily possible to rack up way more than 40 hours a week, especially if working weekends. That can be a con or a pro depending on how you see it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try to hire more people so that all the shifts can be adequately covered. Otherwise the hospital is ran very well. Can't wait for the new tower to open.

    Pros

    If you know the right people whether you are qualified or not you could be there to stay with great retirement benefits...Getting into the right group is key..

    Cons

    Disappointing upper management, a cliquish, good old-boy environment. Not a fair place to work, individuals are moved around and promoted depending on if they are in the "club".. All others not welcome so do not apply.

    Pros

    The benefits are good, pay is average. You get to work with a variety of people from different backgrounds, there is always overtime available.

    Cons

    Really,if you enjoy working in an extremely fast-paced ER, then there aren't many cons. Compared to other companies I have worked for, the training is very short.

    Current Employee - Staff III RN  in  San Antonio, TX
    Current Employee - Staff III RN in San Antonio, TX

    Pros

    Busy, teaching Level I where nursing has a voice with Docs. Care for the most needy and sickest patients for 22 counties

    Cons

    After Magnet Journey was over and Magnet status achieved hospital management all changed and returned to how it was 25 years ago (when I started). Nurses are terrorized by Management, Current course is to run of the expensive senior nurses since they are paid max 38.11 hour but UHS has an excellent retirement 80/20 plan,. If you make it to working nearly 30 -35 years you will be costly. They are committed to building a new trauma tower they really cannot begin to afford.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ER CND must stop terrorizing employees. She has a long history of treating senior staff with disrespect when she was a PCC and currently is very malicious.
