    I worked at South Austin Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    South Austin Hospital really appreciates it's employees. The management in the Radiology Department goes out of it's way to recognize and reward employees. Radiology Management is always there to talk to, and honestly cares about its employees. If there is ever a concern brought to the Radiology Management's table, they address it immediately; and are ALWAYS in their employees' corner when it comes to inter-departmental conflict.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, St. David's does not pay their employees fair wages when compared to other metropolitan cites in TX. The sharp increase in the cost of living in Austin over the past 5 years has not been taken into account and the pay has not reflected the cost of living increase. In fact, raises each year barely even cover natural inflation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, very supportive and make it an enjoyable place to work.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at South Austin Hospital.

    Interview

    Two-step hiring process, for me it was very quick and I was hired the same day. I spent time interviewing with two nurse managers, maybe because they weren't sure which floor they would need me on? I was made to feel welcome and as it was my very first RN job, I was nervous. I didn't feel like they wanted me to feel dumb when I stumbled over my interview questions. Expect a urine drug screen to be scheduled.
