    At Henry Ford ER downtown the orientation was approx 16-20wks, and when I started as a new grad in 2008 I started at 24.68/hr with $1.85 midnight differential and $2.00 wknd differential, and i'm pretty sure they haven't changed the pay scale since then..

    Depends where you work at Henry Ford but on a med/surg type unit you get about 8 weeks orientation as a new grad. Pay starts at $25.31/hr plus shift differentials which I can never remember. I think its $2 for weekends and some percentage for afternoons and midnights.

    I'm at Henry Ford West Bloomfield, and no we haven't changed the pay scale for shift premiums. They recently gave a small raise to everyone relevant on your position within the hospital, last year. Off hand I can't recall exactly how much.

    Is there any tips with getting into Henry Ford Hospital? I have applied for numerous positions but get turned down because I am a new graduate. I know this is the hospital I want to work at! Any information would be very appreciated!
