Therapist (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – November 8, 2018
Pay is good compared to other community agencies however the slightly higher salary is just not worth risking your own mental health. You are required to wear 10 different hats which is great to gain experience but you will quickly burn out. The PTO is a joke (you gain less than 1 full day off per month) and the health benefits are impossible to afford for you and your family. Management attempts to support but just adds more to your plate with each staff meeting. Management is reasonable at times with your time off but at other times they give you grief about not being available more hours than you are actually getting paid for. If they provided more PTO and were actually encouraged to use it, then maybe it would be worth it. But there is nowhere to advance in your position and your yearly raises aren't worth another year of stress. Not to mention it's a guarantee that more than once you will be pressured or even forced to do something that could risk your license. Not worth it.
Charge Nurse, RN (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – July 29, 2018
Working at Stonecrest gave me the experience of what it’s like to work with management that isn’t competent. Favoritism is badly displayed by the ADON. They’re under staffed and accepted patients that aren’t save for that facility for the patients wellbeing or staff working the unit. Most of the nurses there can’t pass medications due drug abuse history.
Free soda and coffee
Dangerous atmosphere, under staffed over worked, unprofessional management

I have had the pleasure of working at Stone Crest for the past two years, it is a great facility with a lot of caring and dedicated staff. The programs are expanding and there is a lot of potential if you are willing to work hard.
Mental Health Associate (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – April 25, 2018
Horrible place to work. Never knew adults conducted themselves in that manner in a work environment. Management have favorite staff, A lot of unprofessional coworker mingling, and the highest turnover rate I’ve ever known of simply because they treat Good employees terrible or get rid of them because of numbers in there corporate world.
Nurse (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – September 26, 2017
High turnover for nurses, management will antagonize nursing staff for no reason, Human Resources Director is unprofessional, rude and condescending. Management sneaky and will antagonize employees and then fire them.
Mental Health Associate (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI 48205 – August 22, 2017
Not a bad place to work if you can tolerate being cussed at, spit at, hit, bit etc. Unfortunately I loved it. I had to move on because i needed more flexibility so i could be around more with my daughter while my girl pursued her goals. A lot of hard workers. A lot of slackers also but they will have your back if they respect you. not a place for the weak. Team work made the dream work.. I miss the Dirty Dirty..and all my team mates.
Good people, free pop, learn something new everyday
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – April 20, 2017
They start you on the hardest floor and treat you like they are breaking you in. They are very against new people.. Expectations are not real if you don't chase behind management you will not fit in.. They are extremely controlling and no have no compassion towards employees. They make you sign a paper stating if you quit you will owe 500$ for your background check and a CPI class that one of the employees teach
Clinical Therapist (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – January 20, 2017
I have worked for StoneCrest Center for over 3 years now and I've got to say, it's one of the best social work jobs that I have had as a MSW. Stonecrest Center is a for-profit agency which is a positive as this assists with job security, safety of the facility, competitive salary + benefits, as well as the constant upgrade of the hospital services (i.e. adding new technology, sensory rooms, clinical products/games to assist special needs to help us run more smoothly). They continuously are adding more activities/opportunities for the patients (most importantly) but also their staff. The hours that I work are typical 9-5 but the supervisors are flexible with special conflict as needed. My favorite part of my position is that we work very independently without supervision babysitting our every move. I would highly recommend submitting your resume and joining our team, we also eat A LOT of free cupcakes! :)
Mental Health Associate (MHA) (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – December 28, 2016
Do not work for this company or send your loved ones to their facility because it's a "for-profit" agency that has no interest in the care of its patients and their employees are expandable. The nursing management team are very unprofessional and the culture is based on who you are friends with. If you do your job well as a MHA and the patients appreciate your service the nurses will plot to get you out of the unit or they would have another MHA to manipulate a patient to get you in trouble with management. The turnovers are excessive because of the work reduction for full time MHA staff. Also, negative work environment, let alone that this company looks at every patient as a payday especially if the patient has good insurance. Therefore, if you hear anything about a job opening for this company and the position is for a MHA, RUN!
Free lunch if you work with the adolescents, free soft drinks
No advancement opportunities, hostile work environment, unsupportive management team, poor team morale, endless job turnovers and excessive work reductions for full time MHA staff
Multiple Positions (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – November 30, 2016
Working at StoneCrest Center has been a great experience for me. I have learned a great deal working in an in-patient setting. The opportunity for growth has definitely been positive and rewarding. The average day is calm and easy to get your job done. I enjoy the people who work within the facility and it is always a pleasure to be in a teamwork environment. This organization has also put a great deal of money into the physical plant, which has added to making this a great place for patients and a great place to work.
Good work environment, Great Team Work, Nice Facility, Great Lunch
Nurse (Current Employee) – Michigan – October 13, 2016
I have worked at Stonecrest for almost a year now. I really enjoy my co-workers and the patients. Can the job be stressful?? Yes, but we work as a team and the job can also be very rewarding. I have worked at other hospitals in town and I feel Stonecrest is very well staffed. I have gained so much experience since I have started working there. I would totally recommend Stonecrest to other nurses.
Caring for extremely mentally ill patients who hardly get to see the doctor. Many are court appointed to be there and sadly do not want to be. The management does not really care about the patients and often you work very short. The company acts like they want to help the patient but, when the insurance no longer pays the patient is kicked to the curb.
Mental Health Associate (Former Employee) – Detroit, MI – July 1, 2016
This was probably the worst job I have ever had. I knew it would not be easy working at a psychiatric hospital, but the way the patients were treated bothered me more than anything. They say how important team work is there, which it is because when you are dealing with patients that can snap in a matter of seconds you need to know that the people you are working with have you back! THAT WAS NOT THE CASE. Although there were some good employees there many of them would not help and did not watch your back. The pay is not worth what you go through on a daily basis. Being a new employee was even worst because you were treated like poo by the other workers. I witnessed horrible horrible treatment of patients. I understand that there needs to be ways to handle patients who are a threat but I witnessed a patient being thrown to the ground because she called a nurse a bad word. The care that is provided is a joke. Many of the patients don't even belong there, but the hospital will accept them only to make money off of them. There is such a high turn over rate many employees do not even com back after lunch and that is due to how the MHAs, in particular, are treated.
Mha (Current Employee) – Detroit mi – August 5, 2015
I'm a current employee and the management is horrible they are racist and practice an unfair working environment ., nurses lock themselves in the fish bowl (office) when there is a violent patient leaving the mhas to get hurt. Too much work drama and UNDER PAID! If you desperatly need s job .. Come and make the money and go home
