I have worked for Concentra my entire adult life. Having the opportunity to work with them was truly a blessing. It can be a difficult job at times because we are working with angry people that are not happy they need to come get drug tested by us. A lot of the time patients are upset and take it out on the staff. It can be a mental challenge having to work with patients like that all day every day. However, over my eight years working there I have learned to overcome that stress. Days can still be rough but I now have the strong customer service skills, confidence, and motivation that allows me to stay professional and become a positive part of their day. It has taught me how to deal with people from all walks of life.
