Mission: Sea Mar Community Health Centers is a community-based organization committed to providing quality, comprehensive health, human, housing, educational and cultural services to diverse communities, specializing in service to Latinos.
I worked at SeaMar Community Health Centers full-time (Less than a year)
Love the dedication the company has to serving diverse communities and taking a strong stand with social justice and community service. Seems to be very easy to get hired because of a high turnover rate so if you're desperate for a job fast, chances seem pretty good.
There are a lot of employees cutting corners. Also employees who were maybe hired because they were the ones willing to work for less. Pay is super low compared to other salaries I've seen out there and it doesn't seem like they were attracting the cream of the crop with the bare bones compensation. The most responsible and dedicated people I talked to during my stay confided that they were just there to get the experience they felt they needed to get into other places. It's too bad because many great workers there struggle to make a difference among the masses who don't seem to care.
Advice to Management
Management seems to focus the wrong stuff, micromanaging things like whether an employee can go use the rest room and where they can place a water bottle on their work station while missing massive matters related to quality of patient care. Good employees are collecting resume fluff and planning their swift exit because they don't get trust from the management while employees who don't do their work with respect to patients or standards wander around causing trouble. If management could spend more time addressing actual problem employees instead of micromanaging competent employees' every moves, they might retain some of the kind of employees they want and less of the ones they don't.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at SeaMar Community Health Centers.
I applied for the position on Oct. 25th and got an interview in a week. The program director and a clinical supervisor interviewed me. The interview process was a little bit intense as they just took turns and asked you questions and then wrote down your answers, didn't really give any responses.
