Kaleida
Phlebotomy Technician (Former Employee) –  Williamsville, NYSeptember 14, 2017
Kaleida was the best job, Ive ever had. I had to leave to move to Kansas, I have been trying to get back in the system. Kaleida had great staff, benefits, and compensation. Hard to get in, but once you're in is great.

Every workplace has pros and cons
Lead Staffing Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Buffalo, NYSeptember 14, 2017
Every work place has pros and cons. Working in healthcare is stressful. Being a staffing coordinator in long term health is challenging deal with may call offs, disciplines, and holding employees accountible. There are upsides to the position seeing residents recover from injuries, or employees taking the next step in their careers.

CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) –  North Tonawanda, NYAugust 26, 2017
Productive place to work even though it's fast paced on morning shift. Friendly Co workers, and management. I enjoy working at kaleida I just wish they're were more accommodations when it comes to education. Trying to balance work and school can be tough I believe it should be easier when your trying to educate and succeed within yourself.
Pros
Bonuses
Cons
Short staff

Currently work in surgical services. It is a constantly changing and evolving environment. The hardest part of the job is the children we cant "fix." The most enjoyable part of the job is taking care of the family as an entire unit.
Pros
the patient population

Kaleida Health
Bed Desk Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYJune 16, 2017
I would recommend Kaleida Health as an employer because of the pay, the benefits, the flexibility and the patient interaction. Kaleida has several facilities and once you are trained and feel comfortable with your abilities, they will allow you to pick up time in other facilities. It helps an individual branch out to see if another facility could be there home or if another department fits better with life.

Challenging place to work
Sugical Materials Clerk (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NY 14203March 27, 2017
I worked at Kaleida Health for over 20 years. Over that time period I saw the hospital merge with three other hospitals. A typical work day consisted of maintaining inventory par levels including cycle counts. I learned how to resolve problems related to the inventory process and communicate with purchasing, receiving, stores and vendors to coordinate the continuous flow of supplies. the workplace culture was good until they began to downsize. The difficult part of the job was managing over 10,000 unique items. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting nice people.
Pros
medical benefits
Cons
job security

Horrible Workplace Environment & Management
Finance Dept (Former Employee) –  Visiting Nursing Association of WNYJanuary 22, 2017
Worst company I ever worked for. Everyone in the admin offices are nasty, negative, lazy, incompetent, and most of the employees are protected by the union (so they can get away with doing the bare minimum and then you will be subjected to doing their work for them even though it's not relevant to finance.) Management is absolutely horrendous in the finance dept. Extremely high turnover that's why you see them keep posting for positions in the finance department. The accounting manager lacks the ability to manage people, explain things well, presents themself as a slob, and is extremely unprofessional. Everyone you will have to encounter in other departments will walk all over you and treat you terribly and you are not allowed to stick up for yourself. Everyone is in edge because they fire people a lot. The secretary in the finance department is an absolutely rude, arrogant, judgmental, and an overall nasty woman. She will make your worklife extremely difficult to bear if she doesn't like your personal life choices. The workload is insane and extremely inefficient. Management won't change anything about it even though they encourage all new hires to suggest ideas about "streamlining" the process. You are expected to work a lot of overtime even though they swear to all new hires they are only expected 10 hours of overtime max per month. They will overwhelm you with the work of about 2-3 people. My advice is to avoid working there at all costs. The stress and amount of disrespect you will encounter is not worth the money or benefits. Avoid at all costs or learn the hard way.
Pros
No pro's at all
Cons
Horrible management, high turnover, people treat you terribly, avoid at all costs or you will learn the hard way!!!
