Run! Do not work for this company!!!
Phlebotomist/Lab Assistant (Former Employee) –  Lacey, WAJune 29, 2017
Not a good company to work for! Management is horrible and do not take care of their employees! Management verbally abuses and insults staff and when told you can go to high management, they find a way to fired you. Everyone is over worked and compensated for it. No room for growth.

Great place to work for new Medical Assistants just graduating, as they teach you along the way. You can expand all your skills and you learn new on the job skills/training.

Great job, Hard work
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Aberdeen, WAJune 13, 2017
Working for SeaMar was a great yet challenging experience. At SeaMar you work with the heart of the community by providing care to all regardless of culture or insurance. There, you will experience pediatrics, geriatrics, chronic pain, diabetics and more while doing what is necessary to help them achieve their care. This is a busy environment, so i would suggest strong coffee and good shoes. Its was not uncommon for my pedometer to read 10,000+ steps per day, however, i enjoyed this about SeaMar. I loved being busy. Here, not only will you encounter the nicest patients, there are some hard ones too, so being ready to take the brunt of an upset patient is important here and in the medical field period. This is a great place to work, great benefits, good training and great compensation.
Pros
union, benefits and pay
Cons
Short to no breaks.

Challenging and Underpaid
Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAMay 5, 2017
Sea Mar's mission to help under-resourced marginalized people is a passionate mission that I enjoyed working with for nearly 10 years. It can be challenging to navigate Sea Mar's antiquated culture and the fact that they micromanage staff, underpay them and have fairly rigid productivity expectations.
Pros
Clinics are closed on 5 de Mayo
Cons
Often short staffed, high turnover rate

Trash
Dental Assistant III (Former Employee) –  Tacoma, WAMay 3, 2017
Sea Mar is a trash place to work. The staff is messy, the management is messy and it's very stressful. Other than having some awesome providers to work with, that's the only thing I miss about that place.

Medical Assistant (Full Time) (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAApril 27, 2017
SeaMar's mission is great, and I love what they are trying to provide to the community that cannot afford medical care but I do believe that they should try to take care of their employees just the same. They are under-staffed and extremely stretched out on work-load. It is a great place as a beginner and get experience but due to their lack of help on employment advancement, it is not a place where you can continue to grow.

Good people doing important work despite unresponsive and distant management.
Integration Specialist (Current Employee) –  Aberdeen, WAApril 20, 2017
Sea Mar is doing a lot of good work for thousands of people. The people who work there are largely dedicated and frankly are often in the same SES situatiions as their clients. Sea Mar management is highly focused on Seattle despite being a statewide company and is much more focused on appearance than on employee welfare or customer service. Overall it is an okay place to work but it has high turnover because Sea Mar always strives to meet the minimum for their employees, the middle of the road for their patients, and excellence in expanding their reach. Obviously the order of those priorities needs to be adjusted.
Pros
forgiving schedule
Cons
archaic dress code, low pay for the industry, distant management
