Hi, I'm new here, I just want to ask to everyone out there, how is it working with hospitals managed by Tenet group? I'll be working with them in the near future, are they good to there employees, they offered me $21/hr, of course this is under an agency since I'm a new hire from the Philippines, I'll be in the Los Angeles area. Is this reasonable?

Listen to jemb. Tenet is a business ONLY. They buy up and close hospitals frequently, and build new ones in more prosperous locations, with no regard for the outraged communities involved.
Nurses in LA make way more than $21/hour (check out some of the threads here for comparison), so I'm sure they'd be glad to hire you at that rate. (The median salary for a staff RN in LA is over $50,000/year.)
By the way, in light of the cost cutting described above, it might interest you to know that Tenet recently doubled the retirement package for its CEO.

We have ran SO MANY stories written in California about Tenet on our web site -- all of them BAD.
Just go our story archive, use Ctrl-F on the main page and enter "Tenet." You'll all stories written in the Golden State within the past 30-60 days -- amounting to about three or four at last count (beyond that, we don't archive).
