STAFF ACCOUNTANT (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – March 18, 2019
Employees are expected to work nights and weekends to get the job done. There is no discussion as to what can help employees do their job better and more efficiently. Little to no training is given when you start your job.
Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – March 8, 2019
Very cut throat. Fellow employees always trying to find away to make you look bad to upper management. Unit supervisor is a joke. Comes and goes when they like, no supervision. Coworkers leave on a 30 minute lunch, only to return hour and a half later, with no repercussions. Would never advise any one to come to highpointe!
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – February 13, 2019
A typical day in the life of an hospital employee working 12 hour shifts consists of patience, team work, collaberation, and dependency.

Medical Receptionist (Former Employee) – Williamsville, NY – January 7, 2019
I loved working at millard Fillmore suburban. I was there for 27 years. The benefits were the best around. Everyone worked together in a relaxed atmosphere. We had in services regularly to update our knowledge. I retired at a age that I felt comfortable with. After much thought I decided to go back in the work force but part time. I only would like two days or sixteen hours a week.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – November 2, 2018
Kaleida Health is a system that includes hospitals and many different health clinics that provide healthcare for our community. They provide and encourage continuing education to employees so that caregivers are competent.
PCA (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – October 18, 2018
After working at suburban hospital for well over a decade I was dismissed like trash. Management is a joke. They hire people and play favoritism with them. Kaleida health wants their workers to go out of their way for strangers. But when it comes to dedicated workers who choose to do the right thing, it means nothing to them. The union is a joke. They have never done anything worth anything. The union is supposed to help and yet I was thrown down under the bus. Now I’m unemployed and kaleida doesn’t license and staff other that RNs. Kaleida will not ever give their employees a second chance unless they can embarrass their employees but calling them theifs or drug addicts. It’s so sad that a hospital expects so much yet they don’t give and inch.
Management Schedual lazy staff, getting harassed by HR always
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – North Tonawanda, NY – September 13, 2018
The work culture at degraff was clicky and racist. The upper management showed alot of favoritism and through alot of stuff under the rug. I would recomment kaleida based on benefits but i would not recomment degraff to anybody. In the newer contract you are stuck at degraff for 2 years before you can bid out which sucks
great pay, great shift differential, alot of discounts
Patient Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – September 6, 2018
As a CNA I was able to advance into the hospital systems and as a nurse as well. They promoted from within first and everyone in the company had a chance to move up as well. Very structured and well liked company.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – North Tonawanda, NY – August 27, 2018
630 am to 7 pm long work day, but like 4 days a week off working in the ER you learn on a case by case basis that nothing is ever the same at any given time. management was ok most of the time as long as you were doing your job they pretty much left you alone. The hardest part is seeing someone and wanting to help them so bad, but you know that there is nothing you can do. the most enjoyable part of the job is being involved in saving someones life.
Phlebotomy Technician (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – August 27, 2018

Public Safety Officer (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – July 26, 2018
Security is a position I have held for many years and I was a good employee for Kaleida Health. I just did not feel that there was room for advancement and an opportunity to coach College Football came up and they would not work with my schedule
