Since the company started using a computer based patient scheduling system, the hours suck. It does not increase patient safety, it's merely for controlling labor cost. Fresenius is for profit, even if it means working your employees to the point of burnout. After 17 years in healthcare I'm considering a career change.....

If hired full time you could be working anywhere from 32 to more than 40 hours per week. Many clinics will require you to do some 16 hour shifts. My clinic opened at 6am but patients showed up earlier so that meant you had to arrive by 4am if the opener or 4:45am if just setting up for your patients.

No family life. Wake up its dark head to work. Go home from work it's dark. Constantly being called in on day off and criticized for not answering and needing a day off. Paid time off is pointless because it is denied whenever management feel the need. Constantly shirt staffed because people quit all the time.

Whoever said flexible is a lie unless you going to school for something that benefits them. Then again depends on how petty your manager is. The hours are long. Let's see depending on the clinic you go in at 4 or 5 a.m. and you get off depending on how many shifts you got when the last patient done. You better hope that patient don't ride with a transportation company then you can be there past 9 o clock. Most clinics are short so they don't split shifts. So you are working 4days a week anywhere from 4 a.m to 10 or later. Better hope they don't say mandatory overtime you can work 5 to 6 days. Which will be free days because that much overtime the government take in taxes. If you want to really know about the company just look at how many jobs they got posted. Even travel position which Every one wants, but why no one wants to work for Fresenius.
