I am about to receive an offer from St. Joseph's downtown, and I was wondering if anyone who works there can tell me a little bit about the culture. Also, I am a new grad and am wondering what I may be able to expect for salary? I have heard in Houston it's around $22 or so. Is this the case sense IASIS took over?Thanks in advance. I look forward to hearing from you

Hi I just got hired from St. Joseph Downtown and they are hiring a ton of new grads! Starting base salary is 25.14. Evening diff is 3.00 and night is 4.00.
Downside: no diff for weekends.
After you are done with training (6-8 weeks), they will increase your base salary by 1 dollar, making it 26.14.
You will be signing a two year contract with them and if anyone decides to leave will have to "buyout" of the contract.
You will be having orientation for one week and start on your unit after that week with a preceptor. Training depends on your unit, my unit is 6 -8 weeks, but if you don't feel comfortable you can ask for a few more weeks. As for culture wise, it is very very diverse.
Sorry for the typos I'm using my phone.
