Enjoy being yelled at by customers

I did not enjoy working there before 2019. Managers yelled at you, customers were very angry, taking endless calls, and lowest pay compared to similar health insurance jobs.


They pay by the hour


Calls that never end

Ok work environment

Good pay. Free Health insurance. Medical, Dental, and vision. Which is mainly if you have no kids. But it's still cheaper with a family. Management is ok. Hard to get promoted though.

poor strict micro managing management

hated the managers, they wont ever let you do your thing without micro managing tf out of you. Shady co workers looking to stab you in the back just to suck up to managers. kaiser expects you to be a robot and work your but off without taking a second to breathe


good benefits


shady coworkers, toxic enviroment

Stressful place to work

Worse place to work. No teamwork, perpetually understaffed. Almost everybody was new, you are always unsure where to get help. No support from management whatsoever.

Great Work Place

KAISER provides advancement and is a great place to work. The hardest part is getting through the assessment during the hiring process. If hired you'll make Kaiser your permanent place of work.

Very awesome place to work! Nice atmosphere, people take pride in their work, friendly work campus, and great pay as well. If you haven’t apply, I suggest you do.

You will learn how to multitask, and use your time efficiently. If you don't like your position, then know that there are so many other medical position to try out in order to find your happy place. Kaiser is a great company to work for with many areas to try to find your happiness in.


The pay is great, the willingness to train you to become a stronger nurse is always available


Many jobs required in small time slots, that can be overwhelming at times

Overworked, Understaffed

I worked at Kaiser for about 8 months and was truly disappointed in the way things were ran. The supervisors showed favoritism and tried to use scare tactics to try to make you feel like your job was at risk if you needed time off. I was in internal medicine then transferred to another department just to receive the same treatment. I always dreamed of finally getting into Kaiser just for my experience to turn out terrible.

Stress free

Relatively low stress job, the workload isn’t as bad as other facilities. There isn’t really any room to learn new things and practice skills, it’s repetitive
