Outpatient Volunteer - Navigator (Former Employee), Detroit, MichiganDecember 21, 2013
A typical day involved meeting patients as they entered the hospital to either introduce them to the cancer institute or direct them to their appointments if they either do not know their destination or are unable to walk.

This job, while unpaid, involved lots of teamwork and communication, as well as requiring good communication skills with patients – more... and employees.

Hardest part would be the actual traveling between parts of the hospital, transporting either supplies or patients. This was part of the DMC and Harper Hospital, so it did involve a lot of walking.

The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the patients, and making sure they were as comfortable as possible. – less

Data Manager (Former Employee), Detroit, MIDecember 4, 2013
Pros: luncheons
Cons: had too much time on my hand
A typical day was waiting for someone to bring me work. Management is great they are not on your back and as for my co workers they are great we carry each other's work load and love for one another. The hardest part of the job was trying to find some work to do. The most enjoyable part of the job is when we have luncheons, get recongized for our hard – more... work, and the ability to talk to one another. – less

Office Manager (Former Employee), Southfield, MIJuly 25, 2013
Pros: good benefits
Cons: not enough advancements in jobs.
Karmanos Cancer Institute - Hospice Program was a wonderful agency to work for. The beginning of the day was to schedule to help patients and families. I learned patience, caring and loving others and humbleness. Management was always willing to listen to suggestions and proceed when possible. Co-workers were good examples for showing cooperation and – more... willingness to do whatever necessary to help the program. The hardest part of the job was when there was a staff shortage and staff was overwhelmed with day to day activities. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing we were helping patient's to dye in comfort with dignity. – less

Administrative Secretary II (Former Employee), Detroit, MIJuly 6, 2013
Pros: cto time bank very good
Cons: unprofessional management/supervisors in some departments
Nice place to work, but cliquey employees. There were managers in some departments that had no business being managers. There really isn't room for advancement because once your manager knows you are applying, they make our time there not very pleasant. Other than that, it was an ok place to work.
