    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Providence Health & Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Providence pays for your CMA schooling if qualified for their apprenticeship program. I was hired directly out of high-school and had my college tuition with certification testing fees covered. Time for studying and classes werw not paid for, however I was paid to complete on-the-job training 40 hours a week for a minimum of 2000 hours (took just under 12 months) with full benefits and PTO. Gaurenteed position for 2 years as "repayment" for tuition. May not pay as high as other places, but as the first company to offer the program in the area and maintain a 100% graduation rate. I'm grateful to have been given this opportunity. Saving $16k+ on tuition and getting paid to gain clinical experience? Winwinwin.

    Cons

    As a non-profit, expect to be paid less with potentially higher stress that some other locations. If you're passionate about patients in need, Providence turns away less patients than most.
