Laboratory Assistant III (Current Employee) – Southfield, MI – May 17, 2018
The company taught me a lot but there seems to no room for growth within the company. I do a good job with where I am an I caught on very fast but that's what seems to be holding me back. I am the strongest member in my department on my shift and I feel they don't want to lose me in this position. I want to further my education within the laboratory in becoming a Technician but I cant get the change in shift I need.
Health Unit Coordinator (HUC) (Former Employee) – Novi, MI – May 14, 2018
Since I work nights, typical night at work is good. Co workers always work with each other. They are fun to work with because they treat like a member of the family. Management always hears our concern and find ways to make our job easier.

Cardiac Rehabilitation Nurse (Former Employee) – Novi, MI – April 11, 2018
We were constantly asked to do more even with management admitted we were stretched to beyond where we could expand. No support from management. Patients were frequently frustrated, not with staff, but with lack of involvement of upper management with concerns.
Certified Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Novi, MI – April 8, 2018
I only work contingent at this time. I do not work a great deal of hours but when I am there the workplace is quick-paced, but relaxing. I enjoy everyone I work with. From the front desk staff, to the leading MA, down to the providers.
1/2-1 hour lunches
A ton of prescription refills to handle in one day
I appreciated all I learned from working at the facility
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – St John Prividence Health System. – April 8, 2018
I would still go there as a patient for medical care as I know staff and doctors who still work there and they are good doctors and nurse. Some days were fast paced and stressful and other days laid back and calm. Cafeteria food was pricey but when you were lazy and didn't pack your lunch it was nice at any expense.
Phelbotomist (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – April 6, 2018
I had a wonderful experience during my time at St. John Hospital. I had to leave due to relocating and caring for an ill parent. Overall I had nothing but pleasant experiences and really gained a lot of knowledge and developed more skills during my employment at st john
Productive place to work with a great orientation staff.
Staff RN (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – March 22, 2018
St. John could use variety with more job opportunities for RN’s and more shifts. It would be nice to have 8 hr M-F shift selection or afternoon shift from 11am-11pm. Also, they need to have patient safety equipment actually available on all of their units, such as patient sliding sheets, and hydraulic lifts, I only saw them during orientation.
Specimen Procurement Coordinator (Current Employee) – Novi, MI – March 16, 2018
I check call in line in the morning, send floats to cover site that have unscheduled call offs. Conference calls everyday. Ordering supplies and stock. Scheduling and problem solving for our 18 different sites. Training new hires. In a hospital organization things change all the time. you need to be able to multitask and know what things are at the top of the list. The hardest part of my job is resolving employee conflict. There are many people at each location and getting everyone on the same page all the time is some times challenging. I love the opportunity to do what I do best and that's organizing, and problem solving.
LPN, telemetry unit (Former Employee) – Warren, MI – March 14, 2018
I worked on the telemetry/med surg unit. Our typical day was quite busy, We got alot of stoke patients, neuro, psych, renal, etoh, and surgical patients in addition to the cardiac patients. I learned quite a bit on a daily basis considering the diverse set of patients we'd get. The hardest part of the job was working short staffed with high acuity patients. I was very fortunate to work with a crew who was all about teamwork. Mostly everyone there worked many years and we had became a family. Despite the bad days we always made it through because everyone gave their all.
