Pros

Caring management. Meaningful work. Excellent benefits. Telecommuting.

Cons

Kaiser is a big ship on an even keel. Interpret that however you will.

    Pros

    WAGES, Union will bat for you (only after 90 days)

    Cons

    poor training and on-boarding, sink-or-swim, not organized, will work you 9 or 10 days straight and balance it so you don't get o/t pay, every weekend and holiday as an on-call w/o so much as asking you before etching the schedule in stone, encourage employees to work double shifts that cause mistakes in pt care & testing, strict 3day/6mo sick days (they have sick emp's working with pts?), ,, sr employees are lazy, old out dated unsafe technique/skills, no dress code=facial piercings,exposed gang type tattoos and dirty t shirts/sweat pants; scary for patients, no certifications or formal training required, heartless or rushed butchers trying to draw morning labs up to 30 pts in less than 2 hrs make their Sunnyside lab a horrific place to work. It will get worse as they downsize to make room for new west hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Thrive motto and Labor & Management Partnership is a facade! Hire and keep employees with compassion, work ethics and current certified skills. Give your members what they deserve

    Pros

    As a contractor I was capped to an 8-hour day, so wildly fluctuating schedules were not an issue. Middle management was open to process innovation and technical input. We were given the tools and infrastructure to get our jobs done effectively. People pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Endless meetings, most of which had nothing to do with my job description. On a minor note, it was interesting that Kaiser worked on the Friday after Thanksgiving, when the rest of America was seemingly gone 'til Monday.

    Advice to Management

    Have meetings "Southwest Airlines" style—everybody standing up. They'll be over in 20 minutes, will discourage idle digressions, and will be a tonic to sitting all day.
