Professional and caring
Senior Markets Customer Representative (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MIJune 17, 2014
Pros: my fellow employees.
Cons: this is a medicare regulated department and that means severe goals must be met. however, instead of always being given data on where the team didn't meet goals set by medicare, needs for positive reinforcement were not shared.
This position offered me added experience of Medicare Advantage Plans and Medigap plans.
Enjoyed working as a team with the other professionals in this department.

Nice place to work & more than willing to help you learn
Medical Secretary (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MIMay 5, 2014
Pros: great way to start in the medical field
Cons: had to work holidays
I worked in the film library 8 hour days, 7 days a week.
I learned how to read x-rays & how to transfer hard copy film to disc.
Management was difficult to deal with at times. Co-workers were all nice & more than willing to help you learn parts of your job & other things.
I love dealing with the staff, doctors, & patients.

CNA (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MIApril 20, 2014
Pros: building relationships with my residents.
Cons: working with low staff.
I will write down new information about my resident that is important. I will then give showers to those who are scheduled. I will lay some down and get those up that will go down to the dining room for dinner. After dinner I lay everybody down for bed and get them washed up. I have to chart what I did during the day and any other specific information – more... needed for the nurse or Physician. – less

The best Orientation experience, however the worst supervisor in my entire career!!!!
Cashier, Coordinator at Lemmen Holton Gift Shop (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MIApril 1, 2014
Pros: working with patients and meeting their every need. i love them.
Cons: no lunch breaks, no recognition, worst superviser ever!
I love working with the patients. Most gratifying job I have ever had, however working hard and doing your best is not recognized anymore. Spectrum has gotten too big and lost its focus on patients first. Supervisor for the gift shop is extremely hard to work for. She is OCD and focuses on herself. I over exceeded my expectations at my job and learned – more... to manage the entire store, however nothing is recognized. No raises, no perks, no breaks!
Co-workers at Lemmen Holton were the best co-workers I have ever had to work with. Supervisor for the Gift Shop is the worst supervisor I have ever had in my career. – less

Fast paced job with a lot of learning available; however, poor management and negative attitudes. Time management is a must and the ability to accept a prison setting.

Ups and Downs
Environmental Services Technician (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MIMarch 3, 2014
The core values and strictness for safety are well addressed. The job itself is very useful to the company. Unfortunately employees in the medical departments will tend to sneer at you because they know how low you are paid. But as long as you have the right moral values, are friendly, and consistently do a good job, stay busy, or just LOOK like you're – more... making the most of the day, you will be fine. Entry level pay isn't the best and the uniforms can be expensive even with discount. So overall if you want job security while looking for the ultimate goals, this is definately a good start. But don't expect to start out on the mountain high unless you have a degree of sorts. – less

Very strict and professional enviornment
Unit-Secretary (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MIFebruary 6, 2014
Pros: babies, remodeling and getting new equipment.
Cons: no reward for doing good ( pizza partys), management makes promises that they can't keep.
I love what I do at Spectrum Health. I work as a Unit secretary on the mother/baby unit. I sit at the front desk, answer multi-line telephones and greet visitors. I also put together patient charts, batch charge entry, order supplies for our unit, communicate with nurses and doctors.

The best place to work
Clinical / Clerical Assistant (Former Employee), Spectrum Health SpartaJanuary 28, 2014
Pros: free movies passes
Cons: short lunch
730 am, first pt check inn, vitals history med check, pharmacy check, you learn everything about there health and concern. Manage everything in your office making sure schedule is running good, Dr is not running late and you are in time. Rx and massages are been on time. Co-worker and you are woking together as a team to make everything in the office – more... more easy for everybody. The most enjoyable is when you get that feed back from the patient, the smile or the thank you from them, and that when you know that you are doing you job correctly. – less
