    Former Employee - Medical Technologist in Clackamas, OR

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid well, new facilities were nice to have. It was great to have a union protection compared to other employers.

    Cons

    Employee - management relations were quite stressed. It was as if two groups were continually fighting against each other. (lab)

    Former Contractor - Administrative Assistant in Clackamas, OR

    I worked at Kaiser Permanente as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly staff and supervisors, Patience while I learned things, positive feedback. Permanent employees get great benefits

    Cons

    There seems to be a lot of job openings but it seems hard to move from a temp to a permanent employee. Hard to get your foot in the door. Long-time workers seem to be unhappy with management. Some seem to feel that they don't understand how decisions get made.

    Pros

    The medical benefits- job security being uniion.

    Cons

    Being union with so many that have more seniority makes it difficult to get time off or a shift you would prefer. People use being in a union as a clutch to do what they want and to not work hard.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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
