    I have been working at Renown Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Friendly coworkers
    My supervisor is awesome
    Company encourages growth into higher-level medicine
    Company will subsidize your education
    CEO has a large focus on population health

    Cons

    They take advantage of being the largest medical employer in the area — 13.19 as starting pay for a phlebotomist is much lower than comparable positions at Saint Mary’s or the local jails/prisons

    Advice to Management

    Patients want colored “fun” bandages. You guys make billions a year, splurge on the patient.

    Environmental Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Renown Health.

    Interview

    Just writing the review for Job Seekers because feel the need to share a phone call experience about a recruiter at Renown Health. The unpleasant conversation raises many concerns about mistreatment of employees, overworked long hours, and cheap pay.

    Beware of cheap pay, mistreatment, and verbal abuse. The Epic Environmental Engineer position has been posted for over 7+ months. Qualified candidate spoke with recruiter, on the phone and there was aggression, berating, and combative arguments. Red flag, the job has been open for a long time and can suspect the issue is with the organization and not the candidate?

    First time ever hearing a recruiter threatening and demanding a candidate force a verbal statement swearing to God to work cheap pay as permanent status employee and committing at least 3, 5, 10+ years at Renown Health. Wouldn't a hospital want happy employees that are well paid to willingly continue to work for the hospital on their own free will? Nobody can predict the future, health or longevity of life therefore cannot make that slave statement. No one is at fault for unforeseen events like being sick, or having an emergency. Is it fair for the recruiter to yell at a candidate because the recruiter predicts the candidate will quit? Does the organization have a history of employees being hired and quitting shortly afterwards leading to high turn-over rates? Do FTE permanent employees at this organization agree to slave labor contracts, working numerous years at 50-70 hours a week, cheap salary with unpaid overtime?

    Also disturbing to hear a recruiter call a candidate names like being a liar, desperate, irresponsible and never wanting to grow up for working as a consultant in past employment history. Why would someone lie about being open to considering a permanent role with the organization? How does applying for a job that was open for many months ago give the recruiter permission to call the candidate desperate? Since when did earning a living as a consultant become irresponsible? Does it matter if a person obtained work experience doing environment strategy as a consultant versus working as FTE doing the same environment strategy? Point is the candidate has relevant work experience, knowledge, and skills to qualify for the job. Shouldn't job skills matter more than past income and job status as a consultant?

    Why is the recruiter focused on talking about money and being jealous of the larger consultant pay? Candidate is offering to discuss project timelines, expectations, and goals. Yet those ideas are rudely ignored. Candidate is willing to consider working, taking a pay cut to work and help the organization. The recruiter at Renown Health quoted a salary number which is about 60-70% less than the market rate of what a consultant makes. Candidate offered to help, willing to work on a solution with the organization because truly likes the job, has done it before, and helping the hospital benefits the local community. The recruiter denied the candidate a chance to explain how to contribute and work together.

    Renown Health doesn’t want any help or to fill this Epic Environmental Engineer position. Don't apply for jobs here, they can't afford to pay new hire employees fairly or competitively in the job market, and there is no care or compassion towards people.
