The most stressful job I've ever had
Patient Relations Representative - Caregiver (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – June 17, 2018
Working at Providence was the most stressful and demeaning job, I have ever had in my 20+ years of working in customer service. No management team ever provided proper training of their systems every manager blamed the employees and never themselves, and the raises were either nothing at all, or pitiful. In 3 years some people saw a total of 45 cents, and never 1 or 2 dollars unless you attained a new job. The entire job was laughable, as there was no real communication about your performance until you were in trouble. A friend of mine, who I thought was darn near perfect, was immediately brought up on several complaints when one person claimed that he was yelling at him.
Funny thing is, my friends and I all stood up for him and let management know that he had never yelled at her, and he was STILL written up for something that had occurred over 5 months prior. Even now, I hear that the management will have you doing enough work for 3 people, for a measly 17 bucks an hour and think that they are the best in health care. What a joke. I left and went to Kaiser where I make a way better salary, and do a lot less.
I cannot tell you how many people I've met who love their job at Kaiser in comparison.
Personally, I'm a lot happy going to work, instead of feeling the dread. We had a lady at another clinic tell their boss to "F off" (Going PG here) because of how bad she was treated in her 4 months of being there, and quit.
If you need a job, I guess go for it. However, I am HAPPY that I quit earlier this year.
8 hour shifts, and 1 hour lunch
Management, non-competitive pay structure, lack of a reason to stay with the company, no way to move up, easy to be fired.
