I left one year ago because they used me for 7 out of the 8 months there. 2 our 2 schedulers left which left me to schedule for the ENTIRE IR department which I was not trained for. Way too much stress for one person. Others ended up trying to help but I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I did it for self-preservation. Others that were hired after me, never came back after one week. I did stick it out for 8 months until 2 people were trained. Went back to a lower paying job because of them. What a shame. They lost a great employee but their loss.You never know what will happen......

Haven't resigned yet. The work environment has grown increasingly hostile and unsafe. Front desk staff thinks they can make decisions regarding patient safety in MRI. A manager who allows it. A "Lead Tech" who's in the position by default instead of merit. It's an accident waiting to happen.

Poor respect for the profession of nursing. They respect business over healthcare delivery.

I left KP because I felt management was more concerned about their "bottom line" instead of me as an employee with an onset medical condition. The work/life balance needs a major overhaul. And the one thing that sticks out to me that I just couldn't wrap my mind around was the fact if you are out sick with a doctor's note from a Kaiser physician, it still counts as an occurrence and it goes on your record. I have never worked for a company that does that. And with Kaiser being a healthcare company, it just didn't make sense at all. The pay is good but work needs to be more than about compensation.
