Thank you for your feedback. We understand the disappointment that follows when candidates are interviewed but not selected for a job opening but want to give you some perspective that may help.
Many times we have multiple qualified candidates for a single position and we will interview several of them; and at times a second interview is requested for top candidates. Ultimately we are only able to select one person to fill a vacancy out of all the candidates who were interviewed, and have a difficult decision in deciding which candidate we will offer the position to.
While previous experience is helpful, it’s not the only factor we consider. We hire many Medical Assistants in both Washington and Oregon who are new grads and don’t have any experience beyond their MA training.
We encourage candidates to continue to search and apply for openings for which they are qualified and interested.
Thank you for the time and commitment you gave to helping our communities receive top-quality health care and services. We appreciate you and always are a little sad when someone so valued moves on. We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors and hope one day our paths cross again.
We are very sorry to hear your experience working on our team didn’t meet your expectations. It is our desire that all our staff are in a positive working environment and as an organization we have systems in place to help achieve that goal.
We are a little confused about the “pay is not great” portion of your review. The compensation rate in our organization is very competitive. In addition to that, we regularly review market data to ensure we are staying competitive in our employee pay rates. Because of that, above the annual raises our employees receive, we have also adjusted the compensation rates of the entire organization to ensure we are paying staff a competitive rate.
We are sorry you weren’t able to achieve that goal, working with your HR Business Partner and supervisor. We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.
We have forwarded your concerns on to our quality department for further review. Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback.
As a current employee, we encourage you to reach out to your HR Business Partner and supervisor to help mitigate a stressful work environment.
One of our top priorities is work/life balance with our staff, in addition to training and offering advancement opportunities. We actually have a full department within Human Resources for training and helping our staff advance in their careers.
Please feel free to express to your supervisor your interest in moving forward with your career at Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic. We are always thrilled to promote from within. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your review.
Thank you for the time you gave to the communities we serve. It sounds like we could have done a better job showing recognition and appreciation toward you.
Our staff are the heart of the organization, which beats to serve the underserved. We couldn’t serve more than 149,000 patients every year without people just like you.
We wholeheartedly believe EVERY employee is extremely valued in the work they do, and we do not consider anyone “lower level.”
In addition, employee recognition is one of our top priorities and something we’ve been working hard to make sure our staff feel appreciated, because they truly are.
Thank you so much for the 5-star review! We are thrilled to have you as part of the family and could not do what we do without the proper functionality of Epic.
It definitely tugs at the heart strings when staff receive recognition for the longevity of their careers with Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic. There was even one staff member recognized this year for hitting 35 years with the organization. What a humbling and proud moment!
It's unfortunate that you felt as though the pay and opportunities for advancement weren’t up to par. We review our pay structure annually to remain market-competitive.
We have also recently raised the company-wide minimum wage to well above the state minimum and are always looking for ways to promote from within. We hope you consider coming back and taking a look at our job boards for open positions.
Thank you for the review!
First and foremost, thank you for serving the patients of Yakima. We couldn’t help more than 140,000 people every year without dedicated members of our health care team, like you.
We know that we are a busy organization, because the need for affordable health care in our community is very high. The work you do, indeed, makes a different in improving the health and well-being of our community. Thank you for being a valued member of the team!
We are so happy to have you as part of the team that helps serve our communities. We are so thankful for administrators like you who believe in the mission of providing quality health care to our communities that truly need it. We are thrilled to have you as a coworker!
Thank you for your feedback. We are indeed a very busy organization. We have so many patients that need our care and creating access to care is a top priority. Another top priority, however, is ensuring our employees have a sustainable workload and that our everyone, including our providers are happy and healthy. We encourage all our providers to discuss their workload concerns with their medical director and clinic director. We know that our leadership team truly cares and is always open and responsive to concerns regarding work-life.
We’re happy to report that our provider turnover rates are well below the average of other community health care organizations. Last year our turnover rate was just 12 percent, compared to other CHC’s who report turnover at 15-20+ percent.
We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.
We want to take a moment and say thank you for the years you gave to our patients and communities. We know many of the positions in our system are emotionally challenging because of the type of work we do, the people we serve, and because of the amount of passion we have.
You are no exception to that. We are sad to have to sometimes say goodbye to quality employees, such as yourself. Keep an eye on our job board for openings that might fit your experience!
