Employees who don't do their job don't get held accountable, one employee threatend another with a pair of siccors and HR did nothing, foul language by pharmacists and technicians, upper management changes work flow about every 6 months and doesn't listen to any input employees have, short staffed all the time, favoritism towards certain employees.

Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Minneapolis-Saint Paul, MN – April 6, 2016
I was officially hired, went to orientation, and after 4 days of that, they decided to not take me on as an employee. It was a scam, I know one of the instructors didn't care for me, and I found out the manager that initially hired me, resigned also at this time, thee was BS going on behind closed doors, don't recommend working there.
Typical day at work, scheduling patients for injection, calling the insurance companies for authorizations for the injection. Work close with the nurses and physicians. I learned all the different types of injection that the physician can give to patient to help the pain. I also learned how to do intake. The management was friendly. My co-workers were friendly and willing to help you. The hardest part of the job was getting the authorization from the insurance companies to cover the injections. The most enjoyable part of my job was knowing I helped many patients get pain relief by getting their insurance to cover the bill.
Being able to multi task and work with the nurses and phyiscians
Shadowing physicians and allied health professionals made easy by Fairview staff. Very flexible with opportunity and allow you to engage in a variety of difference areas to engage in the healthcare field.
CST (Current Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – February 8, 2016
I am casual and have been for the past 5 years. I enjoy the flexibilty of working in many different areas. I usually work almost full time hours and am a very dedicated employee with a positive and up beat attitude.
CD Counselor II (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – January 6, 2016
Had been a good place to work, but after director Jeff Powers retired the current management is floundering. Lots of staff changes in the past 6 months. Too top heavy and changes take too long. Counselors go out of their way to get the job done and serve the clients in the best ways they can. Unfortunately management doesn't seem to care about the client experience and it's largely "filling beds" and "don't rock the boat" mentality leaving staff between a rock and a hard place. Also no one knows about the program unless it's word of mouth. There apparently is no way to get an advertising budget. Web presence is largely non-existent. Sad.
The employees had very nice break rooms with vending machines, several microwaves, a couple of refrigerators, and a small library of paper back books. The building had 3 floors and each floor had a break room like this.
Was allowed 2 breaks a day along with a 30 minute lunch.
Pay wasn't the best but at the time I was there the benefits were good.
A scheduler does more then just schedule appointments for patients. Schedulers also take phone calls to leave messages to Doctors, enter demographic information, verify insurance information and transfers calls where needed
Like working for Fairview. Would like to increase wages and work closer to home. However, I need a more challenging position and more variety. I Like working with Patients and Insurance Companies and getting the information they need to support their up-coming procedures and getting that prior authorization. This makes me feel a real sense of accomplishment and utilizes my clinical background
Always a campaign / fund raiser going on, creating some special activties
Too far to drive, too many monotonous accounts to work, would like more interesting cases.
nurse (Current Employee) – Oxboro, Bloomington,MN – November 3, 2015
Used to be a nice clinic to work at. New and always changing leadership who do not care, has resulted in a major loss of good employees and what seems to be impossible at getting and keeping new employees. Turn over is high and morale is at an all time low.
Co wokers and MD's are nice
Always work short, get pulled to dept regardless of training, no breaks, always leaving late, supervisors who are cold and uncaring
