    I worked at Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corp. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They offer an excellent time off, benefits and relocation package; they understand the hospital belongs to the people (not for some big corporation or entity); they save a lot of lives because of their remote location and catering to other remote locations.

    Cons

    Sometimes management forgets the golden rule, if you treat people with respect, they will respect you back (Respect is earned not a right!).

    Advice to Management

    Ensure all levels of management have the proper training on how to develop and motivate staff.

    I worked at Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corp. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay if you want to live in seriously remote area of Alaska. YKHC is the only immediate hospital access within the YK Delta.

    Cons

    Approach comes across as, "We are interested in your application." Then 24 hours later they respond back "thank you but we will continue looking". YKHC has over 200+ vacant positions at all times which should be a "red flag" to anyone not from Alaska. I grew up in Alaska, would have easily consider relocating back to Bethel, and work for YKHC. After interviewing, later finding out about their unethical HEALTHCARE AND BEHAVIORAL HEALTH practices in both the hospital and the entire Behavioral Health Department, learning they would rather continue looking for someone else to join YKHC who has never worked there, honesty blowing me off and not following through with reference checks, I then realized their recruitment practices were seriously disrespectful and dishonest. Unless you are desperate for work, seriously reconsider looking somewhere else for employment. YKHC is not a healthy work culture for anyone including Alaskan natives.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously!!!!! There exist effect and LEAN management at YKHC?????

    I worked at Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corp. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    UPAK PEOPLE are wouderful. They are honest and welcoming but mostly poorly educated . This allows YKHC to operate with very littlr effective oversite

    Cons

    Organization is unethical due to leadership. Once Gene Petola left, the organization breaks all the rules of ethical corp. management. Leadership gets away with this due to its isolated location and poorly educated stakeholders

    Advice to Management

    Dan Winkleman and his whole leadership needs to be replaced. The organization operates outside nomal business and ethical standard. Self dealing, gratuities, sexual harrasment. health and employment laws are ignored. Most of the executive leadesship team is wholely unqualified for the positions they hold.

    Benefits and pay are great.

    Working and living in the remote Alaska can be difficult for some people, and expensive for rent.

    Talk more about prejudices against natives, after all it is a Native hospital.

    I have been working at Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corp. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here.

    Cons

    Bosses that are only out for themselves
    Bosses that have separate rules for certain employees, which encourages conflict between employees.
    Bosses allow physical threats to occur in the workplace.
    Senior management is completely incompetent. Normally, if one employee threatens another, the employee making the threat is no longer an employee, here they just send them to HR, for a 'talk'.
    If things continue, this place will be another statistic, where an employee comes back and shoots someone, I'm just glad, as long as it happens after Memorial Day, I won't be around to get shot. Stay away from this place!
    Not a good place to work. Even if you are unemployed and don't have any other prospects, do not take a job here.

    Advice to Management

    Terminate employees that threaten coworkers, in anyway, shape or form. If they comment to another employee that, 'you don't know what I'm capable of', that person should NOT go to HR, they should go to jail!
