    Anyone working here willing to share any feedback? I am considering a position.
    Pay, benefits, bonus, pluses and minuses?

    If you are going for a generalist position, you won't get a penny more than 70k base. Bonuses have little to do w/ you and a lot to do w/ your CFO and how hospital performs. It's a great job, but you can quickly get lost in politics and having to please the several bosses you will have.

    Good luck.

    Avoid it if you can. Potential early upside not worth long term damage you will suffer.

    The same job is re-posted time after time in my area. Can they not find someone who they want to hire?? There are plenty of qualified people. Maybe that pay is too low for an MBA?

    Pay is too low for a bachelors! Kansas City has had 100% turnover in the last 3 years including managers and none of it positive turnover.

    If considering HCA...RUN, don't walk away!

    One issue in their recruiting and hiring is that they show age discrimination.
    The first question the interviewer asked me was, "What year did you graduate from college?"
    She has been working in HR at HCA for fifteen years, she said.
    Honey, you is a moron!

    Almost a little shocking as HCA is a VERY CONSERVATIVE company.

    Conservative is one thing -- dishonest and outside the law is another.

    I had the same experience: first question was about my age, not about my background or experience.

    Apparently HCA feels it can operate w/ impunity.

    Age discrimination is so bad at HCA it is like in the film Logan's Run, once you reach 30 you are terminated. Older people might ask too many questions or expect to be paid a decent wage.
