Fast Growing Opportunities
Customer Service (Former Employee), Irving, TXJuly 8, 2014
Pros: free gym, luncheons, growing opportunities within
Cons: not enough training, need proper coaching
A typical workday for me, working with behavioral health physicians, and patients. Verifying EOB's to physicians, sending physician list to patients and physicians,and filing claims.

I've learn to always pay attention to details, be a good listener, and never take an opportunity given for granted.

Management was very helpful and always made changes – more... within the company.

The hardest part was leaving the job, due to assignment ending.

The most enjoyable part is helping the patient getting everything their needing. – less

- Distributed prescribed medications at scheduled times

Management: My supervisor was amazing, very accommodating, and approachable.
Co-Workers: My co-workers were an amazing and tight-knitted crew. Everyone communicated well, everyone was willing to assist each other without any delay
Obstacles: Everyday was unpredictable. Everyday we came across new clients with different personalities, backgrounds, and issues. At times, the job became very dangerous and overwhelming.
Positive Feedback: It was truly a blessing being able to be apart of so many people's lives and to help them to the road to recovery. I made it my goal to touch the life of someone in need of help. – less

No two days are ever the same and that's GREAT
Business Service Coordinator at VNSNY (Current Employee), New York, NYOctober 5, 2012
Pros: healthcare, interaction with patients, great coworkers
Cons: minimal room for growth
There is no such thing as a typical day at the Visiting Nurse Service of NY in the Behavioral Health Program and I must say that is one of the perks. There is never a dull moment. From the interactions with patients and coworkers,to maintaining the office-there is no such thing as a duplicate day. It keeps me on my toes and helps me learn how to prioritize – more... tasks.

The most difficult part of my job is maintaining the billing for all the counties we serve, but it has served as a great learning opportunity for me. The most enjoyable is providing comfort and assistance to our patients even if it is over the phone until our nurses and doctors reach their homes. – less

A very rewarding job helping people
Substance Abuse Counselor (Former Employee), Gardena, CAJuly 31, 2012
Pros: interaction with people
Cons: working as a per-diem counselor, full time position wasn't not available.
Every work day was very busy attending clients needs, which I love doing because I enjoy helping people in general. I learned how to listen to people and how to help them make better decisions in their lives via counseling. My co-workers worked as hard as anybody trying to help their clients also. We were together as a team and got along great. The – more... hardest part of the job is witnessing people struggle with their drug/alcohol addiction and the most enjoyable was being able to help them stop their addiction. – less
