Fast paced and great for learning in the medical field.
Transporter/Customer Service (Former Employee) – 3990 john r – July 12, 2017
Working as a transporter for Harper hospital was a great way for me to come out of highschool. The fast paced environment worked well for me. I enjoy multi-tasking and helping others. Typically i worked 8 hour shifts 2:30pm- 11 pm. My job as transporter was to safely and effectively move patients via stretcher or wheelchair, throughout the Detroit Medical Center campus. This means to testing sites, lobbies to ensure safety in and out of cars, patient bedrooms and anywhere else a person may be in need of help. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning skills, such as cpr and proper body mechanics, meeting new people everyday and really just being able to help people, even if its just a small gesture to make them a little bit more comfortable. Hardest part of the job was definitely dealing with deceased people, you never really want too but someone has too and we made sure they were transporter safely and respectfully.
Management wasn't the easiest to work with due to high demands they place on employees but overall they can be flexible.
good pay, easy job, gain experience
really fast paced, somewhat uneasy management, long hours
