What Our People Are Saying
Outpatient Pharmacy Operations Manager

“I joined Kaiser Permanente as a young mother with a family. I knew this was a stable company with great pay and benefits, and many opportunities to grow. I’ve always experienced flexibility and growth and we’re encouraged to serve our communities and to have a work-life balance.”
