Unorganized Chaos
Home Health Aide (Current Employee), Grand Rapids, MISeptember 11, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: distance
Did not have a set schedule. On-call 7d/wk. Hours of days varied from 3hr-12hr. For being a large hospital, is very unorganized for this group.

Spectrum is untrustworthy.
CNA (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MIJuly 16, 2014
Pros: nothing.
Cons: a big company that only cares about making money. the residents rooms are so small, that it makes me sad. not enough windows and looks like a prison.
I'm a resource cna and this place is dirty, never enough staff to care for all residents. I always felt stressed! They started canceling a lot of resource due to budget and if you worked, it was horrible. Not enough staff. There is 5 floors and and one more, which is the 6th and that's the hospital. The CNAS are nurse techs and running short, so management – more... wanted resource CNAS, that worked on other 5 to train upstairs for only 3 days. The techs got 3 wks and make more money, but they want to save money and have resource CNAS work up their. You won't make more or get proper training, not even the nurse tech title. You get the idea. LISTEN, this is the Big scam to. You will pick up your hours on API computer for Spectrum and it will say vacancy. Your thinking open hours. So not true, they don't tell you how many others are extra and will cancel you one hour before shift. Resource doesn't get Holiday pay. You must work 3 a year and you get last to choose from. A complete and total scam. The orientation was great and EXTREMELY missleading. Just wait until you start. The truth comes out. Your just a number and nothing more. Truth. – less

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.

Medical Secretary (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MIMay 5, 2014
Pros: great way to start in the medical field

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

Substance Abuse Counselor (Current Employee), Garden City, GAMarch 8, 2014
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.
