    Little concern for employees

    Nurse (Former Employee)
    Dearborn, MI

    ProsPay, benefits, coworkers, work is hard but rewarding

    ConsManagement shows little concern for employees injured on the job. Seems they want them to move on instead of returning to work. Employees do not get injured on purpose and want to return to their previous position but when the injury prevents returning to the previous position Oakwood does not offer work in other positions

    Grueling two years of my life

    Document Imaging Specialist (Former Employee)
    Dearborn, MI

    ProsAbility to get work experience and a paycheck

    ConsUnflexible schedules - I was told by management that I needed to be working when other people were there, that it was a safety issue of working alone (on weekends). I contacted HR and security and neither said this was true. I asked my supervisor about this and was nearly fired.
    Poor management - Management has little prior experience and it shows by the amount of favoritism.
    Unfair treatment - Favorites were generally allowed to bend the rules whereas everyone else was held to a T.
    Timekeeping methods - As many others have mentioned, the timekeeping sucks. If you are 1 minute late, you must work an additional 15 minutes to cover this 60 second tardy. This is because "of how the timeclock system works" - payroll.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management - Do not promote based on favoritism. Choose the right people for the job.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Oakwood Southshore

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat Staff that educates new hires. Excellent physicians well recognized. Newly remodeled single patient rooms, well organized.

    ConsAdvancement in opportunity was never offered. Insurance expensive to pt time workers

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more involved with employees that arent RNs or Physicians. Some of the most demanding jobs are those who work under RNs. From my experience i came in more contact with patients and spent more time with them than nurses. Ideas to improve things during meetings were never listened to in meetings. The "budget" was more important than having proper things for the job. I was told when i got hired i would have opportunity for full time. I never was offered any position after 3 years and above avg reviews
