Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Kirkland, WA – August 24, 2016
At my initial interview I was guaranteed a specific schedule, to find out that said schedule was changed after I was hired. Little to no training, even on training that I asked for repeatedly.
Work load is all technicians, a few pharmacists will help out and answer phones, but a majority will not.
Management is the larger problem in this picture. They run a pharmacy that they do their best to stay away from. They choose favorites and make scapegoats out of others. They have chased off good people, with little care, but retained the bad workers, the bad workers are subservient to them so they appreciate that.
No training, clueless management, oblivious pharmacists
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Kirkland, WA – August 29, 2016
I honestly had a HORRIBLE time working here. I was treated so unfair. Was working 12+ hour shifts as a medical assistant when I was 9 months pregnant, and wasn't allowed to take my breaks. There wasn't good communication with management. They made me feel guilty for not being able to come in (my day off). I remember dreading every day I had to go to work because of the drama in the office (all girls).
Dietary Assistant (Current Employee) – Stafford Springs, CT – December 21, 2015
A good amount of work to be done, keeps you busy. Long day, always on your feet; a lot of drama and a kitchen full of women. Short majority of the time, Work holidays and not guaranteed vacation time asked for. There is a lot of favoritism and the job is honestly not paid enough for the amount of stress and work we do. It never pays off.
Get to eat anything
Short break, on your feet for 8 hours, schedules you almost 10 days in a row, long days, early mornings, way too much drama; not a good place to work
PATIENT FINANCIAL SERVICES (Former Employee) – Kirkland, WA – September 26, 2015
From the beginning the position was not trained in any way. The co-workers tried to assist, but was told by management that they were training. When went to get assistance, didn't receive any clear help to my questions and was only given half information. Inquired if I could shadow a co-worker to see what they do, was denied. I felt that I could've been a good fit, had there been an actual training, or at least a module or syllabus that I could use. The co-workers were very nice and helpful and I wished that I could've continued with the company.
Discount on lunches and purchases of medical services.
No training program-nothing to support position and tasks to do job correctly
A great place to work and make a real difference. Unfortunately, there are a lot of growing pains due to being a new insurance co-op. There is a constant friction between being a new model for delivering great health insurance and being a traditional carrier.
Laboratory Billing & Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Kirkland, WA – October 19, 2014
Evergreen Health is a good employer with great benefits. Training in employer specific job duties lacked. I had to do a lot of self educating to find information that they did not know but should have.
Family oriented, caring and professional environment
MDS Coordinator (Former Employee) – Stafford Springs, CT – November 5, 2013
Ever day was different here and this is where I gained majority of my customer service skills; working with dementia, psychiatric and elderly patients and their family members. Management was professional and seamless. The values were all about the clients. Any job openings were posted within the facility first to allow employees the opportunity to advance first. Finally, family comes first here.
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Bothell, WA – July 10, 2015
Evergreen is an okay company to work for, but no room for advancement, and it has turned into more of how we can make evergreen more and more money instead of trying to provide the best quality healthcare for a patient.
Fun, Clean place to work, offers great hands on work expiereince.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Vallejo, CA – September 17, 2012
A typical day for me at work consists of patient care and rehabilitation. Keeping sharp and focused at all times carrying out my daily I like to check in on all patients and to make them aware that I am on duty, should they need anything. My daily duties; bedpan, diapering bathing and emptying drainage bags. Since my employment her I have learned different fuctions of how to run a home-healthcare facilty, the managment staff and my co-workers all share with me and one another for to care, management our site. The most dificult part of my job that I have expierenced I would say is during the holidays when I see the sadness in my patients eyes. The most joyful part of my job is that I have the opportunity to make a postive difference in each one of my patients life and for this I ma blessed! Thank you.
Equipment/Supply Technician (Former Employee) – Kirkland, WA – June 3, 2014
Labor nursing floor with 46 rooms. Nursing staff support with equipment and supply logistics. Customer service in a maternity setting. I learned to make proactive decisions for patient safety and care. Organizational and management skills were a must in preparing rooms for new mothers. The nursing staff were the best I've known. They were dedicated to the aspect of each patient being a priority. The hardest part of the job was high acuity, and foreseeing needs of a full unit. It was also a positive daily challenge. I do my best work under pressure. The most enjoyable part of the job were my coworkers. Very team driven
Very conservative workplace. Everyone was quiet, heads down, very little communication between employees.
Payroll Specialist (Former Employee) – Kirkland, WA – February 26, 2015
I was a Payroll Specialist at Evergreen. I worked 8-5, and some weekends/holidays. It wasn't a very welcoming environment and management was very impersonal. There were deadlines which I didn't mind and it was close to home which was even better!
Creating a culture of staff managing their roles and responsibilities
Manager, Business Operations & Development (Former Employee) – Kirkland, WA – July 30, 2012
I enjoyed my time at Evergreen Home Care Services (EHCS) as I oversaw the Intake/Call Center department, the marketing/liaison staff, the business office and the technology team. I learned that it's important to not micromanage most of the time to ensure that staff take responsibility for their duties and expectation. My co-workers did a great job for EHCS and they all grew day to day. The hardest part of the job was making sure that all staff understood customer service becuase they could be so busy. But we created a customer service plan and oriented all to it and EHCS has become the best.
PHARMACY A TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Kirkland, WA – May 17, 2012
Begging the work day by arriving and going over any information that I may need to know with my coworker. After which I am on my own, my part comes into to play when a Dr decides to admit a patient into the hospital if their condition is severe enough. I would enter and begin going over the patients medications with them, making sure that I have all the correct information on how the patient takes his/her medications, at what time and if they are taking any over the counter medications as well. After the information has been obtained, I then update the hospitals computer system making sure that all the patients medications are entered correctly as to when the patient does get checked into a room in the hospital, the doctors there will know what medications the patients needs on a daily basis.
Certified Nurse Aide (Former Employee) – Stafford Springs, CT – June 25, 2013
Was a great place to work, great pay, I was able to utlize skills learned in the Patient Care Associate Program. To start a day on second shift I would assist with hygiene, assist with feeding, answer call buttons, assist with showers, assist helping patients brush teeth, assist with helping patients to bed, answer call buttons. The hardest part of the job was the amount of clients I had every night, the most enjoyable part of the job was making sure each one of them was as comfortable as possible.
