I have been working at Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corp.

Pros

No where to spend your money. Student loans can be paid off.

Cons

The cost of living is very high. You can only leave via airplane and it costs approximately $350 round trip to fly into Anchorage for specialized medical, shopping or even to go to the movies. There is nothing to do on your days off. No movies, very few restaurants and they all have the same food, nothing that you would have in a regular city.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your regular staff instead of the travelers. If you pay a traveler $40 an hour then $40 an hour to their company, plus round trip transportation, plus housing, and you only pay your regular employe $40 an hour the 6% you put into their account at the end of the year does not equate not with the harsh living environment and the cost of living in an isolated village.

    Small company with limited growth potential. It can get very cold in Bethel, Alaska, but if you are ok with that, this is the place to work in town.
