Even though I worked a lot of hours here, the job was fun. We got to visit sites where we pulled the medical record files from.

Merchandiser (Former Employee), Portland, OR – September 11, 2012
Pros: flexible work schedule, independant job
Cons: communication with manager mostly by email only
At RMS I was a merchandiser. I would drive my own vehicle to various grocery stores and stocked ice cream products. I would walk into the back of the stores and collect the back stock and bring it to the store shelves. I would make sure the shelves were neat and the different flavors were put in the right places. I would fill out a store report and – more... get it signed by the store supervisor or manager. My Manager worked in Portland while I was working in the Eugene/Springfield area. I would fax my reports to my manager once a week. I never worked with anyone else I was always alone. I enjoyed being independent. Typically I would start working around 6am end my work around 3pm. This was a part time job while I was in High School and a year after I graduated High School. This job was weekends only. The hardest part of this job was trying to find a supervisor or manager to sign my report when my work was done at each store. A lot of people there did not feel comfortable for whatever reason signing my report. Sometimes I would walk around for over 20 minutes trying to find someone to sign my report. – less

Quality Assurance Specialist - Full-time (Current Employee), Calgary, AB – January 5, 2013
Pros: flexibility of work hours / able to work from home
Cons: no consistency of product, tools provided are not adequate to meet production expected, too much focus on bottom line
A typical day starts with turning on my computer, either at home or at the office. I start with a check of email for anything that requires immediate attention, then log into my workflow to see how many reports have come in, if there are any rush requests and scan thru for any potential time killers. Typically there will be between 20 - 40 reports to – more... start and they will continue to flow in with the 15th and month end pay cutoff seeing the highest volume of work. Any custom reports must be done at the office so I will generally work at home 1-2 days a week and in the office 3-4 days. We have an exceptional support system with 24/6 managers available by phone or email, to advise and assist - a wonderful and supportive group with extensive knowledge and enthusiasm. At the office, we have one clerical staff member who is hard working and conscientious - I like her a lot. We worked together prior to the Syntech acquisition in March 2012. There are two members of the sales team, one is a former Syntech owner and we have a good working relationship. The other is rarely in the office, preferring to work from home. Both are very helpful with any client issues that arise. RMS is a large company providing the risk management services to insurance companies on a Canada wide scale. RMS is continuously striving to improve processes but seemingly with little success. The hardest part of my job? I often feel like a hamster on a wheel with a never ending job. The best part? Providing support to the field staff and seeing a quality finished report going out the door. – less
