Department Assistant (Current Employee) – Traverse City, MI – April 11, 2018
Munson Healthcare doesn't care about their employees. The entire company has a mindset that anyone and everyone is replaceable. The budget is ridiculous and everyone is understaffed. The benefits are a joke, administration is a mess, HR is completely disorganizatized and acts like you're wasting their time (with one of the generalists being down right argumentative and rude!) The nursing staff is so kind and wonderful but the powers that be are ruining what used to be a pillar in the community. Admin and HR need a total overhaul.
Certified Nurse Assistant (Former Employee) – Traverse City, MI – April 10, 2018
Every job has its downs the only problem ive ever had here was trying to 'fit in' with the night crew. However...once I was on days it was an amazing experience. The day nurses taught and guided me. They were teachers as well as supervisors. Ive made a few mistakes and instead of blaming me and tossing me out to the boss they helped me realize my mistake and how to avoid it. I never wanted to become a nurse until I worked on C-2 Seriously, the best nurses your ever want to care for your family amd work for for years!
Central Processing Technician (Current Employee) – Traverse City – April 3, 2018
Employees are penalized for staying home if Ill without a doctor's note. My $14 an hour pay can't cover my $40 copay so I must work while sick, not good for patients or coworkers. Lower management tries hard but are limited by administrative policies geared towards cutting costs wherever they can. Not a good choice for primary employment.

Munson is a great place to work.place.They treat each employee with respect and makes them a part of the team... The employees can discuss things with the people in charge and its not discussed with others.

Munson very much underpays their employees. They overwork people too. I have been called off multiple times after I have already drove in to work. Does not feel like munson cares about their employees.
MEAL SERVICE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Traverse City, MI – February 4, 2018
I enjoyed working for Munson Medical Center but decided to quit as it was becoming overwhelming in addition to my school work. Many people were either quitting or calling in, so often we were short handed making the work environment negative and stressful.
Paramedic (Current Employee) – Traverse City, MI – January 31, 2018
The management has little interest in retaining good employees vs using a schedule and vacation time that would benefit both the company and employee. They are more concerned about the bottom line and their rating than their employees
This job was great for getting my foot in the door, starting my career.
EKG Technician (Former Employee) – Traverse City, MI – January 26, 2018
I started working at Munson the Summer prior to my Senior year of College. At that point I had narrowed my major to Clinical Exercise Science, and the chance to work in a Cardiac Diagnostic department was too good to pass up. The other employees there were great, the management was great, and this job gave me great experience with EKG material, Holter monitors, and a great start in clinical stress testing.
Far too large to feel that I make enough of an impact.
Radiologic Technologist (Former Employee) – Traverse City, MI – January 7, 2018
My position at Munson Healthcare is with Traverse Heart and Vascular as a scheduler. This is a practice of over 25 providers. I am one of three in this position, and we also answer every call that comes into the practice. We are to field each call and send it to the appropriate person. The vast number of calls that come into the practice limits our time that we can spend with each patient. I feel that I am too far removed from the patient, and cannot be as effective as I would like to be in the care of the patient. My wish is to work for a smaller firm, where I can feel more accomplished,as I can focus on a patient care.
There are many aspects of the practice to learn.
There is not enough staff to teach, therefore I don't feel I can be effective.
