New management were out to get the people who have been with the company for many yrs and were paid well. To cut costs, management demanded impossible numbers and started writing and firing agents. Horrible management. Yes, they also practice retaliation and union didn’t do anything about it.

Just apply for everything, even if it doesn’t fit with your schedule or location, then tough it out for a little while and you can easily transfer to a different location. I started at Hillsboro and lived out past Corbett at the time.

Get rid of the dead wood in the system. Fix system issues so staff can work more effectively. Clean up absenteeism issues that are not legit. Identify bullying on unit and deal with it.

Kaiser what are you teaching management? Are they trained to be poor leaders on purpose. I just don't get it. It seems to be a standard practice within Kaiser. I guess it's easier to hire yes people within management and HR. Whatever happened to being ethical and respectful at the least. No one is winning. But they don't care. Soul-less.

It really depends on the department you are working for. If you're working inpatient, then you could be working any time/any day as it is running 24/7. If you work in outpatient, then that is roughly a 8-5 Mon-Fri job (unless you work urgent care). Pharmacy is open all different hours. Then there are the regional office jobs or non-patient care depts which are also 8-5 Mon-Fri.

For your interview, be prepared to answer many questions about conflict resolution. It’s the new fad. Never mind if you can actually do the job! They want to know how you handle conflict. Few of any department specific questions

If you are a non union employee you will get a raise 1 time a year you will also get a bonus. If you are a union employee you will get two raises a year until the 5 th year you will be at the top wages.
