Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Duluth, GA – July 15, 2018
Very unorganized and unprofessional, barely could depend on management, work environment was also very unprofessional. No job security at all, they fire people for random reasons, and they are very unorganized.
RN (Former Employee) – Oakland, CA – July 15, 2018
Loved my time at KP. Unfortunately KP went through a bad growing season where they implemented a culture of laying off people by calling it "restructuring and hubbing" KP words of One KP and Loyalty were lost to those most loyal that suddenly found themselves without a job. The majority of employees were listed as excellent and exemplary but had too many years of service in. Most left and some found another job within the system for less pay and not utilizing their skills to the fullest potential.
Call Center Nurse (Former Employee) – Aurora,CO – July 14, 2018
I had set hours that I worked and was happy with my position and time. Then came the decision to close the call center. Because I had low seniority, I was not able to secure a position that would work with my family life at that time. I was laid off from Kaiser after working for them for 2 years.

unable to secure another position when restructuring took place
Volunteer (Current Employee) – Richmond, CA – July 12, 2018
It's a straight forward position. You're stationed at the hospital's front desk at the main entrance. You are in charge of greeting customers, giving them directions, looking up their appointments, and looking up family/friends if they are in the ER. From time to time, you will also be asked to transport patients in wheelchairs from various destinations (e.g. another department or to their car parked out front). I've only done Monday mornings, and the flow fluctuates with it being quieter some days, and other days you're called to several locations to bring patients all over the hospital.
I think it is worth it to volunteer here, however, as it gives you some insight on how a hospital works and gives you interaction time with patients.
patient interaction, get to move around the hospital
manager is hard to get a hold of, cranky people, not having enough information to direct someone
RN (Former Employee) – Beaverton, OR – July 12, 2018
This was my first job out of college and it was a wonerful learning experience. Staff was for the most part very kind and supportive and although hours could be long at times, it was worth it on the up side.
Sr. Staff Asst. (Former Employee) – Vallejo, CA – July 11, 2018
What kept me with my department the longest was certain staff I worked with. We became more like a family since we spent so many hours with each other at the hospital. Our management staff was consistently changing. In my 5 years there, we went through 6 different directors and or managers. Because of this, disciplinary actions were not consistent for staff. This led to horrible attendance in certain staff, and poor performance. When these actions were attempting correction, there was significant resistance on both sides for the lack of consistency by management. Certain staff members were extremely disrespectful to the administration staff, often creating toxic work environments and the inability to effectively to conduct business or carry out any operational needs. I am hoping this was just a location issue, and not an overall organizational issue.
health insurance paid for, paid vacation & sick time, flexible work hours
minimal appreciation for contributions, low employee morale in dept.
Registered Nurse- ER (Former Employee) – Fontana, CA – July 11, 2018
Kaiser was a great company yo work for, especially good benefits financially and working towards retirement. I have never worked for a company before that offered flexible days off for family events or mental health wellness.
