Stereotypical environmental services/janitorial/housekeeping job
Environmental Services Associate (Former Employee) – Battle Creek, MI – May 1, 2014
The management is relatively competent though somewhat varying in style, and can sometimes, if rarely, be condescending. The other employees are kind, accepting, and eager to teach/instruct and are generally welcoming and friendly.
Many/most employees attend college and the atmosphere is conducive to doing so. The management not only accepts but also understands that this level of job is often a "stepping-stone" in one's career.
Compensation is what you would expect and so are benefits, though there is a union if you so choose.
Being employed technically by the hospital (though the management, strangely, is outsourced), all internal hospital job openings are opened first to you and other hospital employees via intranet before any position is released to the general public, allowing for acceptable tolerances of advancement.
Personally, before my leaving said employment, there was a complaint lodged against me regarding a project I was working on (one person accidentally slipped on a floor I was working on and said there were no signs or indications said floor was potentially dangerous). The complaint was thoroughly investigated via personal questioning, security footage, and security and other employee witnesses, and no wrongdoing was determined. The individual apologized and both of us were satisfied with the level of investigation. My point being: there will be no "witch hunts," you will either have done things properly or not, and will be held accountable (or be given credit) either way.
