Ameritox has been one of the most disloyal jobs that I have ever had. I have watched people get set up to be fired. I have watched drama unfold. I have watched screaming matches across the lab. The upper management changes things more than their underwear and there is no support. Most supervisors sit around and talk about their staff to the point it controls if you advance to the next level. So if you are wanting to move up you have to suck up!! Everything is about favoritism. For the amount of work that you do it is a shame how low you get paid. Since I been gone this has improved. I have also watched them swindle people out of their benefits as well. Overall if you choose to work for this company, don't make any friends or enemies and be prepared to be treated like trash.
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Midland, TX – October 6, 2017
Horrible directors. No one knows what they are doing. A good place to start maybe if you're desperate but don't stay here for more than 6 months. They closed their Texas operations for no apparent reason - 200+ people were laid off.
Long breaks and not a lot of work. easy money.
bad management, nothing to learn, totally hopeless managers
Very stressful environment as well as no job security
Production Data Entry (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – September 25, 2017
While working at Ameritox my job was to perform data entry, entering in demographics and prescription data for patients. The job was very stressful at times because we were not able to leave any work in the que on a daily basis and it was enforced that NO errors were to be made.
The team moral was very low and that stemmed from management which therefore trickled down to the team. I did excel in my duties, meeting my goals every day and consistently kept a very low error rate.
The job security at Ameriotx was very low due to their being lay off's every year since I became employed in 2013 and i was laid off on July 25, 2017

The company was great to work for ,they was there to answer your question and help solve any problems. My direct manager was the best, she would come and check on me and my clinic to see if I needed anything.
Ameritox is a good company in a difficult and evolving toxicology space.
Sales (Current Employee) – Indiana – May 2, 2017
I make 6-10 calls per day with potential customers and current customers. I have scheduled appointments most of the lunch hour each week. I sell medication monitoring which is similar to buy and bill. I have to pull the specimens 'through' the offices/clinics. I am paid on the volume and revenue of the specimens. I have to help my customers with insurance coverage and proper coding to increase insurance coverage. I have a smaller base and a greater commission potential. I currently cover N. Indiana and would prefer to cover southern Michigan since that is where I live.
Lets see....I believe they pay pretty amazingly but it doesn't really matter since you only work 1-3 days a week ( 3 if you are lucky). I work all by myself in my "department" my supervisors are all on call and can be reached easily. However, the clinics where I work do NOT understand the policies for the SP...so I spend a lot of time telling people "I can't do that" The job is also really really really boring. I mean, there is literally nothing to do until there is a patient. I spent one day working for 5 hours and only had one patient. It kinda drives you nuts after awhile. And the driving is really really inconvenient. I work at 3 main clinics, but am regularly called in to work different places that can be far away. I was also told I would be compensated for parking....was not.
Data Entry Billing Specialist (Current Employee) – Columbia, MD – June 14, 2016
Productive and fun workplace. My co-workers are great people to work with. The hardest part of the job are the benefits are not that great. The enjoyable part of the job is the company is taking a look at there benefits to see if they can do better.
