    I have been working at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)


    Great benefits, adequate staffing, some departments run very nicely w/ a family atmosphere, much support for furthering education. Most patients love this place. Very fiscally sound which provides for an extra layer of job protection. Active in community support. Research and state of the art healthcare.


    Upper management out of touch w/ needs of many staff members. Serious lack of work/ life balance. Almost impossible to get part time jobs and they cater to the doctors to the point of negatively affected patient care in some instances. No union. Too much push on seasoned RN’s to further education. Their most important goal is doing whatever it takes to maintain Magnet Status (poll your friends who aren’t in healthcare and ask if they know what Magnet status is- appears the general community has no idea/ doesn’t care. I polled well educated people and they were clueless so I’m not sure why hospitals find this to be a marketing tool.

    Advice to Management

    Great job on keeping a loyal and happy patient base and on benefits provided to employees. Severe lack of work-life balance opportunities (almost impossible to get PT or Per Diem jobs). Way, way too much catering to MD’s to the point of affecting patient care in some situations. Need to find true help for your employees housing needs as it’s become entirely too expensive to live within 15 miles or so of the hospital. Although you do provide excellent benefits for employees to further their education the emphasis of RN’s having a BSN or greater should really be targeted to Nurses who are relatively younger/ less experienced. Those of us who have been in the field for 20+ years are driven crazy by this push- seems only fair that w/ this much experience one should just be “Grandfathered in” and let us do our expert work (many of us are of course are older which comes w/ it’s set of challenges such as not as much energy to go around and health problems/ family obligations)- this makes going back to school extremely difficult or downright impossible for some.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.


    This was one of the strangest interviews I have ever been on. I came in 30 minutes before my scheduled interviewer, and they were already looking for me in the hallways asking if I had arrived. I was greeted by two people for the interview, and they began the interview right away. One individual did all of the talking and interviewing. While I was answering one of the questions that he had asked me, the interviewer pulled out his cellphone and talked on the phone. The other individual seemed disinterested since even before the interview started. She shook my hands at our greeting very flimsily, no grip at all. I was highly concerned for her to the point that I wanted to ask if everything was alright. It must have been an off day for these two individuals.
