What Our People Are Saying


Outpatient Pharmacy Operations Manager

I’ve felt real support every step of the way throughout my pharmacy career. I would not be the pharmacist I am today if I was not empowered to practice kindness and compassion, and allowed to be me. I feel blessed to have been a part of this organization for the past 16 years.


Ambulatory Care Pharmacy Supervisor

I have had multiple growth opportunities at Kaiser Permanente. I started as a Summer Youth intern, then I worked as an Apothecary Circle intern. After that, I received two years of pharmacy residency training here. I’ve always been supported with substantial resources like tuition reimbursement, business resource groups, as well as coaching and mentorship programs.


Director, Inpatient Pharmacy Services

The mission and vision of Kaiser Permanente aligns with my values and beliefs. We consistently keep the patient at the center of our decision making and we value our people as our greatest asset.


Manager, Mail-Order Call Center

This organization has encouraged me to work outside of my comfort zone. Now, I’m on a career path I would have never expected. I enjoyed my pathway to get here, and it’s been a challenge. It really helped me grow as a person and as an employee. Kaiser Permanente supported me to be the manager I am today.


Project 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.


Pharmacy Clerk

When you join Kaiser Permanente, you have access to a wealth of experience in the health care industry. You’ll learn about more than medications. You’ll gain experience in customer service, data entry, and other valuable areas. I enjoy supporting our pharmacists and ensuring my patients receive the medications they need.
