CT Technologist (Former Employee) – Saint Joseph, MI – March 27, 2016
Worked for the company for 10 years. The last time years were the worst. Management threatened that they could replace us at every meeting. The company forced cutbacks that resulted in an unsafe patient care environment. Salary was mediocre. No advancement in the company. Good place to gain experience, but not to stay for the duration of your career. They don't care about seniority or loyalty. Coworkers were great to work with.

If you want to work in a place where people who don't do the work make crazy decisions and change the rules every other day, then this is the place for you. Your just a body to fill a position, forget about your home life.
Nurse Assistant (Former Employee) – Saint Joseph, MI – October 17, 2015
Although I loved the nature of my job, it was hard to really enjoy each day when there were an unsafe number of patients to each nurse and nurse aid. The nurse assistants are very under compensated compared to other facilities in the surrounding areas.
No time for Lunches or breaks. Patient/Nurse ratios. Salary
A very nice workplace with a bunch of people that are friendly.
Food Menu Clerk/Food Host (Former Employee) – Niles, MI – November 2, 2015
Work daily was very nice it was a good use of communication and I liked the supervisors way of telling us how too do things better. I learned how too be nicer too people and too be faster more productive of a worker. The management was very nice and liked too help out by providing everything needed too work more efficiently. The co-workers were very nice and were easy too get along with and no problems ever happened between one another.The hardest part of the job was the understanding of what some of the elder patients wanted cause of their voice or murmured words. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction between the patients and I.
It was nice too help others, The nice co-workers were good for the work environment, the pay was nice and the job was easy.
The supervisors werent around for awhile, It took awhile for the healthcare too come through.

I would look for employment elsewhere. They don't like answering questions and will make you feel stupid for asking one. They do this not only to students, but also to new hires as well. I have witnessed both sides of it. I am extremely happy I sought out employment elsewhere as soon as I could.
Registration (Former Employee) – St Joseph – February 8, 2015
Lakeland has some dedicated employees who work hard to give great patient care. It's hard to advance in the organization. Management and the proper follow through on policy can seem unfair quite often. Mainly because it is unfair. You'll probably end up relocating within a couple years in all honesty. It's a great start ti gain experience in the medical work field.
Always learning something new, and this job challenges you everyday
Central Processor (Former Employee) – Saint Joseph, MI – March 3, 2013
Wash, wrap,and pull surgical instruments. I have learned to always pay attention to details Management is always open to new idea, and detail oriented. Co-worker are team players. Trying to do your daily jobs, and also be available to do the things that the doctor, and nurses need you to do for them. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I have contributed my part in making sure that health is top priority.

Everyone at Lakeland seems to do their best. Lakeland makes an obvious effort to show they appreciate their employees. Weekly meetings and great communication. They are big on rewarding good work as well.

Cna (Former Employee) – Saint Joseph mi 49085 – May 8, 2013
Was hurt at work, had to deal with a very unskilled manager. They all stuck together, said I could be rehired, took me 7 months to see they had no intent too do so. A very unfortunate experience! Go somewhere else.
