Good learning environment, work & responsibility challenges

Good learning environment, work & responsibility challenges. Learned much about environment & workplace ethics, dealing with departmental requirements regarding patient needs, healthcare management and importance of network communications within a corporate environment.
Corporate Customer Service (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – May 25, 2016
I absolutely loved this company with my heart and soul I started off and worked until I got to corporate. If you have a true desire to help those whom are less fortunate or just need help medically financially etc this is a great place to get that opportunity. The culture is really diverse and like all places there are a few bad apples the only problem is the direction of the company. I personally have been laid off twice and it took me three years to get benefits. The experience was truly heart breaking I really loved working there and their is many opportunities they just somehow end up in the wrong hands. Nevertheless I wish this company nothing but the best the community depends on their success
courier II and courier I (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – March 9, 2016
I enjoy my job but the leadership is very poor. Working there is like high school all over again, too many immature and unprofessional people starting from the top. However, if you can get past all of the above the pay and benefits are good.

Coordinator (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – December 6, 2015
Management and Supervision will do anything to get you fired if you do not side with them. New hires are not trained or treated right. The Director always go along with the manager, since he appears to know nothing,
Communications Operator (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – October 15, 2015
This department is a easy going and very relaxed atmosphere. The management team is very accommodating as far as scheduling changes for school or family needs. The other Communications Specialist in the department are a very tight knit group who treat one another like family. Working here, I have had the opportunity to join several different committees and learn the various functions and inner workings of other departments that I was not familiar with. The Medical Center also offer many helpful professional development classes that I have had the opportunity to take advantage of.
There is always a celebration on birthdays and holidays.
There is no room for advancement within the department itself.
RIM Sitter (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – October 6, 2015
typical day included checking in with nurses for any special instructions. Watching the patient, conversating, and helping as much as possible. Assisting in feeding sometimes. Notate patient condition ( mental behavior, whether patient was calm or abusive toward self or others). Make sure patient does not hurt self or others, help out of bed for bathroom (if permitted).
One on one with patient, feeling of accomplishment and touching a life like no one else can. Satisfying.
surgical technician (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – December 2, 2015
Henry Ford is better, DMC has budget issues and also has a large disconnect between staff members. Management says they listen to employees but don't and the lower your position the more you're concerns are ignored.
Patient Attendant Safety (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – September 13, 2015
The hardest part of the job is having so many patients and not being to come to their room as soon as they want you to because you want to help everyone. It can get busy in a hospital and you want all your patients to get better but sometimes you have to spend 10 extra minutes in one room because of complications. But overall fun work place. Some people can be too uptight because they have a hard time balancing life and work. Not really a place to grow and develop, once you get the job that's pretty much it. I enjoyed the patients the most, even though some of them are sick and hurting they make sure that the employees smile and laugh.
Discounts at a lot of places, helping people, sometimes free lunch
breaks rooms, no room for growth, easy to get sick, cold
Executive Secretary (Current Employee) – detroit, mi 48238 – September 2, 2015

Certified Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – August 18, 2015
When I started at DMC over 8 years ago, the company had great benefits and incentives....now fast forward to the years of ownership under Vanguard and now Tenet the environment isn't the same but I am still proud that I work here. Tuition reimbursement was cut out earlier this year and most of the people that plan on furthering their education are looking for employment elsewhere. If you are a new employee the benefits package is not very good.
Summer Intern (Former Employee) – Detroit, Mi – August 19, 2015
Being given the opportunity to work with the Detroit Medical Center's summer internship was beneficial to me. It gave me insight on the medical system; not just dealing with patients but also the paperwork as well as hard work and dedication put forth by not only the physical therapists but the secretaries and other office workers as well.
Charge Capture clerk-Remote (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – July 30, 2015
Working remotely with little to no supervision. You are expected to complete 25-30 accounts an hour. The hardest part of my job is when system goes down. Will have to go to Hospital and go through paper charts to and then enter once system is restored. I do miss seeing my E.D. friends. Most enjoyable I don't have to drive long distance. Especially in the winter. Working from home there is less time traveling and more time working.
