Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Pontiac, MI – January 29, 2016
This hospital is a great place to work. The nursing staff is wonderful. Nurses and doctors work well together. If you are seeking a typical hospital nursing position working 3 days a week, then SJMO is a wonderful place to work.
Staff Nurse, Clinical Nurse II (Former Employee) – Pontiac, MI – November 4, 2015
I worked in the ED, it is busy once arrive to the end. Management is ok but unwilling to hire more staff. Extremely short handed all the time and which is the hardest part of the job. I enjoyed my co-workers. We always work well together and help each other to get things done.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Pontiac, MI – September 14, 2015
I have learned a lot at St. Joseph through the years, working in Adult ICU, Surgery and Cardiac Cath Lab. ICU taught me how to take care of medical and surgical patients, surgery I learned to prepare the rooms and patients for surgery and Cardiac cath lab has combined my knowledge of ICU and surgery.
Rewarding to see patients have a better quality of life
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Pontiac, MI – May 12, 2015
Did a lot that many actual paid employees do. I have to say it was a good experience, just wish I was able to do more. If there are people who want to go into the clinical aspect of the medical field, volunteering is a good start. It gives insight on what it takes, a good way to get out there and network with doctors and nurses. Especially nurses if you get a chance to work with them, they can become future references.
work with others, get insight of the pre operation area
wish there were more to do, like shadow a minor operation
Patient Care Technician Extern (Former Employee) – Pontiac, MI – May 4, 2015
A typical morning at work was come in and watch over the patients and make sure they was health and safe. I made beds, order breakfast and lunch in the morning time. I made sure the patients was up and walking around sitting in there chairs also assist with combing there hair. My responsible was to make sure the patient was well taking care of.
New tower is not staffed, going through many changes, too much at one time,
NURSE (Former Employee) – nursing – July 9, 2014
RN many years, constantly working short staffed, upper management gets fired at the drop of a hat, even if they have been there 20+ years.
ICU,CCU, OR and the new South Patient Tower are the top priorities with administration and it is VERY obvious. If you work in a department that is not a top "money maker" you get abused, overlooked, ignored.
HUMAN RESOURCES is not helpful in resolving conflict. They always support corporate, not the "little guy"
co workers are very supportive -we have to be or we wouldn't survive on day to day basis
Medical Receptionist (Current Employee) – Pontiac, MI – May 28, 2014
My job at St, joseph Urgent Care is a very good learning environment, I have been there for 2yrs and I am always learning new things, My co-workers and I all work well together and try to help each other out when needed
Good place to work. Always be looking beyond for advancement.
Manager, Inpatient Pharmacy Services (Former Employee) – Pontiac, MI – September 27, 2012
After many years of excellent service (30+), I'm put out to pastuer like many before me. Overall, good place to start a career. Not many finish there. Co-workers are fantastic throughout the organization. Learned much on the way up over the years. Most difficult part of the job is dealing with trivial behavioral issues of staff that seem to predominate the minds of upper management. Most enjoyable part of the job is being fair and being recognized for it, with staff that report to you.
large enough hospital to offer growth.
constantly changing upper management groups over the years. one is bound to not like you.
clerical (Former Employee) – pontiac, michigan – September 24, 2012
Upper management is so busy patting themselves on the back for what a great job they are doing they have no clue as to how abused the people working in the lower ranks are. If you have ever seen the old silent film "Metropolis" you will have an inkling of what is like to work here.
As a current employee, I have never witnessed such behavior. I would assume you were terminated due to your lack of performance. Perhaps consider a different profession whereas professionalism isn't required.
