Surveyors share why they enjoy working for HHSC:

“I wanted to work in an environment where I knew I could make a positive impact on people’s lives. I have the opportunity every day to protect vulnerable people and make a difference. When I go home, I know I truly did something meaningful and important.”

— Susan S., Houston

“The best thing about my job is seeing the smiles on residents’ faces when I resolve an issue for them. It might be a new bed that is more comfortable, having condiments added to a meal tray, ensuring that their rights are respected and that they have access to resources they are entitled to. Mostly though, it’s listening to their stories, learning what they have endured and seeing they are stronger because of it. Residents inspire me every day to be better, do more and be grateful for what I have.”

Virginia “Ginny” T., Amarillo

“Aside from being a voice for extremely vulnerable individuals, I find that every day is different, challenging and interesting. I also enjoy the job’s flexibility and being able to schedule and plan my day accordingly.”
