Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – San Marcos, CA – February 8, 2016
This entry level opportunity was an excellent experience. I met some of my now long-term friends. I worked well with doctors, nurses, and support staff. This opportunity allowed me to have flexibility as I raised my two children. I grew, had a comfortable income, and worked in a new buildings with up-top-date equipment, software, and well-trained nurses and health care staff.
Kaiser invests heavily into their employees and it shows. I miss working there, but I only left to pursue business ownership in the restaurant industry where my other passion is.
Productive, empowering and fast paced. Great place to work.
Business Process Analyst (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – February 5, 2016
I learned how to look at issues/ problems from a human perspective no just as a business leader . Because at the end of the day if the talent is happy and feels appreciated then our department was successful. by applying this method we met moreof of our stretch goals. I also learned how to study and evaluate our current processes to see what job needs were not being met. And how to create what was needed through the talent that was in each specific department.
Weekly raffles, lunch, one on one outside the office ( a quick stroll)
trying to get everyone motivated, un-uniformed processes.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – February 4, 2016
I worked at Kaiser for 13 years - out of those 13 years, 5 of them were very good. It is all about what department you're in and who you work for. My best years were with a boss that wasn't a micro manager, they allowed me to be creative and helped me grow as an employee.
My co-workers were great, a lot of nice people work at Kaiser Permanente.
Great benefits, access to discount Warrior tickets, motivation to thrive!

Office Administrator (Former Employee) – Centennial, CO – February 3, 2016
As an administrative assistant for KPCO I completed physician and employee annual evaluations as well as general office duties. I assisted with annual budgeting, time keeping, meeting setup, meeting minutes, office organization, and Medical office safety and emergency procedures.
I learned a great deal about the health care industry while working for KPCO.
The hardest part of the job was the continuous management and structural changes that were delegated throughout the organization.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the members and the co-workers!
Dietitian-Nutritionist (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – February 2, 2016
The benefits of this job are amazing. Great pay, insurance, PTO, etc. Only downside is the amount of patient growth to provider growth. Many are overworked and burned out. Being in union protects you from this to some degree. Would recommend working here.

Staff Nurse II (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – January 31, 2016
I was a per diem employee for 6 years. In that time, we had 3 different department directors and various nursing managers. There was a terrible "feel " on the department floor. Nurses were awful to each other, there was lots of gossip and no management to keep any of it in line. I feel poor management was the cause of a very unstable unit. I cannot list one contact number of a manger who is still there from when I was.
Beautiful facility, great equipment and pay.
Terrible management, poor attitude from nurses, back biting.
Pharmacy Technician/Co-Lead (Current Employee) – Corona, CA – January 31, 2016
Kaiser Permanente's mission to provide the best quality of care to all patients has wanted me to pursue a career in health care. I have learned financial strategies along with management and leadership skills to provide better care and lead a team to success. My co-workers are hardworking and encouraging. The hardest part of the job is trying to satisfy every single patient. The most enjoyable part of the job is creating a safe and comfortable environment for all of my patients.
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – January 29, 2016
A regular day would be filled with patients , some had doctors appointments , others came in for urgent care . I learned many things but the one thing that stood out was the care Kaiser nurses provide to their patients. Management was good for the most part , there were a few times management was unfair to the new employees. Most of the co-workers were fair and treated you with respect, some were rude and provided no help. The hardest part was there is just way too much information to remember, being a new employee they expect you too know the whole system in two days. You make one mistake and you are in BIG trouble and new employee's dont get any benefits .
