    Former Employee - CNA in Tacoma, WA
    Recommends

    I worked at MultiCare Health System part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent hourly pay and shift differentials (you could make more elsewhere but the benefits are worth it), good staff to patient ratios even for CNA, great environmental services team so really clean, opportunities for overtime, many good learning opportunities for those CNAs interested in advancing in the industry.

    Cons

    Management tends to micromanage too much. The drug test also tests for nicotine and they have a strict no smoking policy for employees (thought some still do and have been grandfathered in). They keep going back and forth between being strict and lax on their tattoo/piercing/haircolor dress code policies and it was really annoying every time they would try to revert back to the 20 year old dress code policy.

    Advice to Management

    Piercings, tattoos and hair color don't determine whether someone is good at their job or not or whether a person is professional or not.

  2. A great company for a novice or expert to grow in their professional career.

    I have been working at MultiCare Health System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The group I work with is fantastic, employees genuinely care about each other. Skill set I'm learning prepares me for future roles. There is not a micro-management mentality, my leaders give me reign to run my department and try new ideas. Pay is very good, especially when you consider the excellent benefits offered. I really enjoy working here.

    Cons

    Parking can be tricky for the Tacoma facility if you don't get here early enough.

    Advice to Management

    Always assume good intent.

    I have been working at MultiCare Health System part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Very flexible with job movement/transfers. Fair pay. Good PTO/Sick leave options. Promotes teamwork in ways I haven't seen in previous jobs.

    Cons

    Can care about image and paperwork more than time with patients sometimes. Worried about covering themselves instead of hiring more people or staffing more.

    I have been working at MultiCare Health System full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits, competitive pay, great teammates, and excellent mission! MultiCare is very committed to promoting employees from within the organization.

    Cons

    As with any large employer, it can be challenging to navigate through some of the bureaucratic layers. I also find it disappointing to see the negative reviews on this site and attribute it to employees or former employees who are not accustomed to being held accountable. People will always write a review when "dissatisfied"...

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! You can never communicate enough to your employees and I respect that our leaders have challenging jobs at MultiCare.
