I can't say enough good things about working here. Unfortunately I relocated due to family needs. Benefits were great. Don't know if this is true now since insurance prices are so high, but when I was employed there my insurance was free and received free healthcare services within Cottage Health System.
I really don't have many complaints about this job itself. Santa Barbara is an expensive place to live so even with competitive wages it makes it difficult to make a permanent living here.
I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cottage Health System (Santa Barbara, CA).
Interview was initially conducted by phone as I was relocating from out of state. My second interview was in person with 2 staff and manager. Cottage paid for my trip (airfare, hotel, rental car) to CA for interview which was nice; often times people just want a warm body and don't put much thought into who they hire just as long as you're a nurse.
