Busy workplace with plenty of learning and growth opportunities
Certified Laboratory Assistant Extern (Current Employee) – The Dalles, OR – December 6, 2018
MCMC graciously opened their doors to students for an extensive externship of 160 clinical hours in the Clinical Laboratory. We are mentored by well-seasoned Clinical Laboratory Technicians/Assistants, are able to learn new techniques, computer work with EPIC and hands-on experience in Phlebotomy and some lab work. They are willing to offer job positions at the end of the externship to those students who meet the qualifications necessary for the CLA position.
Extensive exposure to wide variety of clinical situations (inpatient, outpatient, clinics, Er, etc), benefits to employees, laid back work environment (but still professional)
Short lunch and breaks, unpredictable traffic flow (often can result in no breaks or late lunch), not much down time, early morning or late night shifts
Excellent Executive leadership shines all the way through
Director (Current Employee) – The Dalles, OR – October 9, 2018
Work is busy, important and ever-changing, but the people and culture here are incredible. The executives are transparent, the HR team supportive. Promotions or moves for change are supported and growth is encouraged.
Western Region Pharmacist (Former Employee) – The Dalles, OR – May 3, 2018
I began my pharmacy career with this company and it was probably the best thing to happen to a young pharmacist. This company has a unique approach to patient care and education. With this, the employees are empowered to learn and achieve more, as well.
Patient Service Representative (Former Employee) – The Dalles, OR – March 14, 2018
The amount of miserable employees here is incredible. Lack of professionalism amongst staff is common. Often times I didnt have the supplies I needed to do my job. Chairs were held together with duct tape. A course in company morale would go far.
Terrible management, short notice change in shifts, lack of supplies, hospital is filthy
School Based Occupational Therapist (Former Employee) – The Dalles, OR – March 1, 2018
I worked as the occupational therapist in the schools through MCMC. I was the first OT to work in the schools with MCMC holding the contract. I was a lot of work to set up the contract but I felt supported by supervisor and co-workers from other parts of MCMC. I worked 8 hour days that consisted of planning and implementing occupational therapy evaluations and treatments. I attended IEP meetings frequently. I enjoyed working with all the students and really enjoyed learning about school based OT through MCMC.

Not a nice town to live in if you are not a native
Histology Technologist (Former Employee) – The Dalles, OR – August 5, 2017
Currently having job cuts - many administration issues. Lost fantastic Lab Manager when she retired. Very nice staff in Lab, good teamwork. Not great upper management (admin) no clarity of future focus.
Administrative Assistant (Contract) (Former Employee) – The Dalles, OR – May 6, 2017
I cannot say enough of about my time spent here. Although it was short lived, I given a great deal of training and support. I was offered the opportunity to take on more responsibility and move into other parts of the organization. They are all about life/work balance and it truly feel family oriented!
Culture and Opportunity
Small town, so if you prefer a bigger city, this won't be the place for you. However, if you do like a small town, it doesn't get any better.
Added Group Exercise Instructor (Former Employee) – The Dalles, OR – December 23, 2015
It was a great place to begin my career but there was no advancement for me in my career. The people I worked with were great and I always loved coming to work, but the administration was always a pain.
