Good work environment
Nurse assistant (Former Employee), Dearborn, MIApril 19, 2015
Pros: weight loss with activity level of job
Cons: midnight shift.
I was responsible for 36 patients on a regular basis. I did patient care and activities of daily living for patients on the urology floor. The hardest part of the job was working the midnight shift. The most enjoyable part of the job was the exercise i got walking around and the resulting weight loss.

Having a heart for clients
Transportation/Psychiatric Aide (Former Employee), Dearborn, MIMarch 28, 2015
Just knowing that at the beginning of your day that your job duties is focused primarily on who needs a helping hand for that day. A companion at heart. Management training, and plenty of team oriented co-workers to help when needed. The hardest part of the job was when clients refused to be helped. And what I've learned from this was not to become so attached to them. The most enjoyable part of the job is when I know I helped someone before the day was over.

Productive place to work
Phlebotimist(Lead)-part-time.rotating (Former Employee), Dearborn, MIMarch 27, 2015
Pros: the cafeteria had good food
Cons: Just the ones descibed above
Over seeing Phlebotomist, making sure the workload is done in a timely manner. I liked my manager, but at times was favorable to certain employes. Also too many family members working same shift. There was also harassment mostly verbal., which should never be tolerated in any work place. Over all my last year there was not pleasant, which is sad because I did enjoy being an employee there.

Professional and fast-paced office setting
Wayne, Radiology Clerk (Current Employee), Wayne, MISeptember 3, 2014
High pace office setting with multiple phone lines and tasks at one time. Assisting patients seen on an outpatient basis, prepping, scheduling entering orders and patient paperwork. I work closely with five other employees in the office and over 40 in the department. The patients are both the most difficult and enjoyable part of my job.

Police Officer (Current Employee), Dearborn, MIApril 2, 2014
A typical day usually details my presence providing a sence of security while patroling outside in a vehicle as well as inside the hospital. Often times patients or visitors may become irate or verbally/physcially aggressive to which we use the necessary deescalation method or wosre case scenario the taser that we carry being PA330 certified.

Ward Secretary (Current Employee), Dearborn, MIDecember 16, 2013
Pros: i like having a union. the union ensures we all get fair treatment.
Cons: rules constantly changing and sometimes they do not update employees in a timely fashion.
I enjoy my job and the people I work with. It feels like family since I am there more than I am at home. I love interacting with patients and helping them through their day and being rewarded with a smile. That hardest part of my is job is sometimes it can be overwhelming and very busy, but the best part is leaving at the end of the day being gratified that everything has been accomplished.
