Which of the “Best Cos. To Work For” Has 1,600 Openings?

Three Minnesota companies-General Mills, Allianz Life, and the Mayo Clinic-made Fortune's list of the "100 best companies to work for"; but Mayo-with 1,600 job openings-is also on the magazine's short list of companies hiring in significant numbers.

Not only is the Mayo Clinic among the “100 best companies to work for,” it is also looking to hire 1,600 workers.

Rochester-based Mayo, which ranked 71st, is one of three Minnesota companies that made Fortune's annual compilation; the two others are Golden Valley-based Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America and General Mills, which ranked 51st and 64th, respectively.

But the Mayo Clinic was also on Fortune's list of 25 companies hiring in significant numbers. The magazine found that Mayo had 1,600 job openings as of January 2.

Fortune selected the 25 companies from its “best companies to work for” list, selecting only those that have at least 700 job openings.

It found that Mayo has openings for physicians and scientists, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. The clinic is also reportedly hiring for finance and coding, administrative and leadership, and laboratory and research positions. The number of openings for registered nurses is the largest; Fortune indicated that there are roughly 285 such vacancies.

Brent Bultem, director of recruitment strategies at Mayo, told Fortune that people whose personal values align with those of the clinic would be strong candidates.

“Individuals who are collaborative, collegial, professional, respectful, and passionate will be a good fit,” he added. “It's up to each applicant to personify those qualities in their application and interview.”

Besides Rochester, Mayo Clinic has locations in Phoenix; Scottsdale, Arizona; and Jacksonville, Florida.

The annual “best companies to work for” list is based on employee surveys, which include questions about job satisfaction, pay and benefit programs, and hiring practices. This year, Fortune surveyed 246,000 employees at 280 companies.
