Very active hospital thats fun and work place environment friendly.
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.

A serious and goal setting organization that caters to their patients.
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 – more... that everything has been accomplished. – less

Great place to work
Ward Secretary (Former Employee), Dearborn, MIJuly 31, 2013
Oakwood as a whole is a great place to work. The trick is finding the department that you can work in and get along with your co-workers. I loved working in L&D, I just could not work the shift I was on for personal reasons. If they had an opening on the shift I needed, I would still be working ther.

LPN (Former Employee), Dearborn, MIJuly 12, 2013
Pros: employee perks
Cons: no full-time status
A typical day at work consisted of ten straight hours on your feet caring for all different etcnicities with all kinds of illness i was assigned to caring for clients in lock down isolation who nobody wanted to work with which i had compassion they were human beings also and should not be excluded because of their health oroblems i mean thats why i – more... became a nurse. I learned how to manage signs and symptoms that were not taught in nursing school that saved my patient life, i also learned teamwork and unity. The hardest part of a job were not being respected as a hard working nurse because i was a LPN and not an RN. The most enjoyable part of the job were the clients and opportunities to grow in your profession. – less

A fast pace work day. I have learned to prepare food for a large number of people. and work together as a team. The Managers are helpful and try to keep things organized. The part of the job I would like to change is to be able to work in the department I have the most skills in, witch is the bake shop. I enjoy working with a lot of different people.

Good for a second job
Oakwood Hospital Mental Health Adult Sitter (Current Employee), West Bloomfield Township, MIJanuary 29, 2013
Pros: you get to make your own schedule and pick over time
Cons: disrespectful staff, no benefits, no raises
I've been working for Oakwood Hospital for 3 years and have tried several times to move up in the hospital and was never capable of getting chosen when my foot was already in the door. I currently make 8.69. Never got a raise, no benifits, the position has been contingent and will never be full time, Management is not good at compromising. But always – more... send an email on how good of a job that we are doing and never get rewarded. I wouldnt choose this is a full time job for the position i am working in. Which is a adult sitter. But the position is good for extra money – less
