Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Fontana, CA – August 14, 2018
I really did enjoy the experience that Kaiser Permanente offered to me. Although I don't agree with them going against their policy procedures.The management for specific departments are very good and very helpful.
Lead Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Redwood City, CA – August 10, 2018
Kaiser permanente is an organization that only cares about making their numbers and they neglect their staffs. Management is always right. The Union that represents the employees is all in one all together with management.

Enjoy my job helping people, best coworker and made alot of friends there. My manager really cared about the staff and was very compassionate. I have since worked in other departments but Oncology is the best.
It was great working for Kaiser the first couple of years
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Roseville, CA and Elk Grove, CA – July 19, 2018
That changed when the administration changed management to business administrators replacing those in management with medical background. Quotas were more inportant. The Thrive mission did not apply to employees.
Specialty jobs are amazing, however the PCP areas are a nightmare
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Highlands Ranch, CO – July 18, 2018
I started in a specialty clinic in Highlands Rach and LOVED it! The job was mentally hard but made you feel like you made a difference. I transferred to another location to try something new, take a mental break and maybe get a more hands on patient experience to use the skills I was trained for. This was a huge mistake! The managers within KP PCP area (specifically Wheatridge) are not very nice and try to write you up for every little thing. Little to no training was offered, when asked for help was called names and made to feel like nothing. If you are not an RN you do not exist! After going to management for help was informed I needed to go to my union steward, who never resoinded.
Excellent opportunities for job placement within the company
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Aurora, CO – June 10, 2018
Great place to work.with excellent options for job placement . Enjoy all job assignments and availability to move around the company to be closer to home and have a flexible work schedule. Working short staffed and no accountability for excessive absences can be a bit frustrating but we are appreciated for pitching into get the patients taken care of. Great recognition program from patient facing to the person behind the phone. Ability to give rewards to staff from other departments for positive patient care. Exceptional pay and benefits. I really enjoy the work I do to help patients get the care they need in a reasonable time frame.staff and management are helpful and knowledgeable about the job to assist with questions and patients who require additional assistance. Working for Kaiser Permanente has given the opportunity to grow and further my career in the health care field whether it be in the clinic or administration with continued education as well as on the job training.

I worked at Kaiser for over 5 years. I learned a lot working there. Kaiser likes to stay updated on the most current trends in healthcare and is constantly striving to improve. The culture there is very patient and team oriented.
Productive and rewarding experience working at Kaiser Permanente
Medical Assistant Extern (Current Employee) – Roseville, CA – April 25, 2018
A typical day at work included rooming patients and aiding in procedures. I've learned a vast variety of skills during my time at Kaiser including performing PVR's, setting up for vasectomy's, biopsy's and cystoscopy's. Management at Kaiser was absolutely great. Unlike any other job I had, my managers here were concerned of our well being and the well being of the office; they treated everyone with dignity and respect. I worked side by side with Doctors, Physician Assistants, Nurses and Medical Assistants who were all understanding and willing to help me better my skills as a new medical assistant. The hardest part of my job was memorizing what every doctor liked and what they didn't based on their medical preferences. The most enjoyable part of the job was aiding doctors in procedures and dealing with patients everyday who are hopeful for help.
