Retired, however, always short staffed. Too many chiefs following you around asking patients how is your nurse doing and not enough nurses. Because of seniority I never got days off I wanted or holidays. Have to say though, best ever benefits.

Great Pay and Benefits. Hard to fire toxic individuals with strong unions -saps morale of hard union workers. Poor training - best to have experience before working at Kaiser.

Great place to work... I believe, just wish the training lasted a little bit longer. When your feet hit the ground....you better be running!

Don’t be fooled by the benefits and great pay. They will micro manage your every last move, provide you little training because they’re so understaffed, working environments are very hostile and competitive, and there are nurses who will through you under the bus and get you in trouble without hearing you out. I can’t speak for every department but the past 2 that I’ve worked with have been that way. If you want to work for a company where you can’t be yourself, and want to be controlled, be my guest.
