TERRITORIAL STAFF
Staff (Former Employee), Joplin, MOMarch 17, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: long term receptionist was territorial, no support from district manager
Overall, a good place to work. The MD and Physicist were great people. Some staff were friendly, some were not and would barely speak to you. In particular, the office manager/receptionist was very territorial and instead of letting me try to do what I was hired for, kept making me do things related to her job. I couldn't focus on what I was supposed – more... to be doing and let me learn MY job. Tried talking to the district manager about this but was poorly received. She took my comments in the wrong context and got an attitude with me so I felt it was best to move on after only a few months. I really thought I had found a good job, and was sad to leave. Joplin is not a great town for medical professionals and it is hard to find a decent position with realistic pay, as the Joplin market in general is VERY low paying. – less

No commute , keep truck at home
CDL Class A Driver (Current Employee), Newport Beach, CAMarch 5, 2014
Pros: great pay
Cons: never getting 2 days off in a row unless you use vaca time .
This is a great job for a person with common sense and a motivated self starter . You get your full weeks schedule in advance and determine when you should leave each day without being told to do so . There is no one calling you or looking over your shoulder as long as you complete your job each day . Co- workers are always helpful and the hardest part – more... of the job is not getting weekends off anymore and working a split schedule ( 1 day off during the week and 1 day off on the weekend 52 weeks out of the year . It makes it hard to enjoy even 1 weekend off per year . the most enjoyable part is the freedom to plan your own practical routes and practical start times , and being able to punch in to work in your own driveway . – less

Alliance A Mobile medical Provider
Logistics Supervisor (Former Employee), Newport Beach, CAJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: excellent team to work with as far as my team
Cons: management did not care for team members other than the bottom line
Company was a great company to work with . Until they went Public then it became all about the bottom line and percentages and not about the customer or the team members.

To all ye who enter...
Nuclear Medicine Technologist (Former Employee), Owosso, MIDecember 28, 2013
Pros: fabulous teammates.
Cons: absentee management and difficult working conditions.
For Technologists and Patient Coordinators this company ought only to be a company of last resort. This may be different if one is seeking a management position considering Alliance's bloated and self serving management structure.

If you enjoy traveling hours to and from work, with scant travel compensation, as management often reneges on travel boundaries – more... (GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING), working very long hours without breaks, freezing in winter and sweating in the summer, attending biannual "team" meetings filled with platitudes and unfulfilled promises, eating on board the unit while dealing with patients at the same time because there are no breaks, management changing one's schedule or dropping one's shifts completely with very little notice, having ever more responsibility often with greater time constraints and little or no help, being unable to schedule days off or vacation time without major difficulty and months of notice, working most or all weekends, working alone with several patients in an unsafe patient care environment, mountains of paperwork, zero upward mobility, nepotism, favoritism, having your achievements and efforts disrespected and under appreciated often times by less educated superiors, and management that would throw you under the bus in a New York Minute, then this is the job for you.

Believe it or not, because of the quality and integrity of the fellow technologists, all of this would be tolerable if not for the utter indifference (bordering on maliciousness) shown by many of the area managers. Technologists are referred to as "moving pieces" and are treated commensurately. A culture of negativity is amok and one is continuously on the defensive and coerced into fearing for his/her job.

Use this job for training experience only, if you must, as there are many highly qualified and versatile technologists that are trapped at Alliance due to it's many acquisitions. – less

Overall, it was a good learning experience and I like the environment that I was in working with a mobile company.
MRI Technologist (Current Employee), VirginiaDecember 20, 2013
I work at several different sites, so I drive between an hour to two hours typically to get to whichever site I am working at for the day. I typically work about a 10 hour day, and rarely get breaks - but that seems to be what happens at most MRI jobs. The hardest part of the job sometimes is going from site to site and trying to adapt to the different – more... protocols and machines that you have to work with. However, that is also a great way to learn. It is also difficult when contracts are up in the air, and you are unsure of your hours, or if you'll even have a job in the next few months. I like the freedom and flexibility of a mobile environment, however I do not like the instability. – less

Good employer with job security
MRI Technologist (Former Employee), San Francisco CA and Tunkhannock, Wilkes-Barre PAOctober 23, 2013
Pros: job security
Cons: short breaks
I enjoyed my job. A typical day would be working on a mobile MRI Trailer so I would get to be outside a lot and I always got to meet new people. I enjoyed my co-workers and I always get along with everyone. The hardest part of the job is seeing people in poor health and the most enjoyable part is helping people. Management was easy to work with. I learned – more... just to take the job day by day and enjoy getting to be outdoors a portion of the day. – less

MRI Technologist (Current Employee), CaliforniaJuly 1, 2013
Pros: check has never been late or bounced
Cons: too many to list
This company sadly has gone friom being a somewhat tolerable place to work to being a sweat shop type employer. current management has no respect for personal lives of employees, you will be expected to be a full time employee with an on-call type schedule. you must be willing to travel great distances for your work location. I would recomend that before – more... coming on here that you get what you ask for and agreed upon in writing. if you are coming on with this company beware...... YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!!! – less

Overloaded work environment
Former MRI tech (Former Employee), Detroit, MIJuly 1, 2013
Pros: most of the techs are helpful and fun to work with. enjoyed going to different facilities each week.
Cons: low pay. training new techs with no, prior experience. work alone most of the time.
Alliance is known for hiring X-ray students with no MRI experience so the quality of work just isn't there but they are only interested in cheap labor. Many techs work alone or with an assistant and can average over 20 pts a day. No job security either. Lose your site and they don't have another place to send you.
