Accounts Payable Analyst (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXJanuary 31, 2015
Pros: large working area
I am currently a contractor at United Allergy Services. I like that I am busy from the minute I get to work until I leave at the end of the day. I like that the team I am currently on works very well together. Management communicates what is expected from the team and is helpful resolving issues.

The team I was a part of was great but we had many accounts to monitor. This could at times be overwhelming. Overall, UAS is a great company.

easy job entry level job
Clinical Allergy Specialist (Former Employee), Statesboro, GAJanuary 20, 2015
In my clinic it was very slow, so although my job was easy, meeting goals was not. I did enjoy the lab aspect of the job but it doesn't make up as much as you would think. Most days I was tracking down patients and trying to get more scheduled which was the hardest part. I did love the independence but I feel the company had high expectations due to huge clinics having high number but not all clinics were as big as others

Company with poor Values
Accounting Specialist (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXSeptember 13, 2014
Pros: monthly mingles to meet coworkers
Cons: poor pay, high school gossip and fighting, even among the execs
Company is at a crossroads. It will either succeed or it will fail. With the current executive staff, the lack of fiscal responsibility, this company is definitely heading down the wrong path.

As long as you work hard you live to see another day
Clinical Allergy Specialist (Current Employee), texasSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: learn every aspect of managed care in healthcare
Cons: work hard to meet budget, poor management, no job security
Corporate has the right idea it's in the business to make money but they don't realize how hard it is to meet budget and follow protocol. Too many redundant documents that is time consuming. The clinic managers are never there, pretend to work and just clock in, the trainers are never around because there is no oversight for them. The allergy techs are the ones that are busting their butts to be productive in fear of losing their job. Some don't even know it's from one day to the next the pull the rug out from under you. It's sad and you feel as if you were replaceable. They need to get rid of the people that don't work, it builds resentment and get better managers that are helpful and on your side not their own. Good side is the patients the relationships you build is what keeps us going, Better pay and benefits for those with experience not entry level pay like recent grads would increase moral.

Do not be fooled, not patient care, not health care. Sales job without sales pay
Clinical Allergy Specialist (Current Employee), Kansas City, KSSeptember 5, 2014
Pros: get a variety of experience, but the individual becomes jack of all trades and master of none.
Cons: unethical practice by corporate, unsupportive managers, finger pointing, not true patient care, a lot of deceit
Work itself is mundane, The one week training in San Antonio is useless, no useful information is taught. Unless you are thrown into a supportive clinic, you have no support. The company preaches patient care, but there is no care involved. Managers will tell you anything for you to get tests and conversions, so insurance companies can be billed. The accuracy of the test is extremely unreliable. Many false positive results have been produced (pt with no allergies but tested positive for reactions). The one year regimen of shots is billed at the beginning essentially scamming insurance policies. More than half of the field employees have no science background, and they just spill out the information from corporate without any analytical abilities. Anyone who questions corporate's practice is scrutinized immediately. Marketing material sent out from corporate cites questionable studies.Regardless of the number of allergy tests you sell or convert, the pay remains the same. The bonus is based off a point system.

The development program is a T shaped diagram which looks exactly like a pyramid scheme flipped upside down.

Allergy Specialist
Clinical Allergy Specialist (Former Employee), Little Rock, ARAugust 20, 2014
Pros: i could always get in touch with my manager and he would also respond in a timely manner.
Cons: when your lab close and you have to try and wait on a immediately opening.
A typical day at work is verifying insurance for patients so I can allergy test them. Mixing medication and training patient on injections so they can take vial home with them. The most enjoyable part about my job was my patients because I liked the talks we had while they had to sit with me.

UAS
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee), Hoboken, NJJuly 23, 2014
Great place to work, it truly is a family.
I work in a pediatric setting, so the hardest part of my job is actually doing the allergy test to children, even though the pain that comes from a scratch test is minimal, for children is a lot worse due to their sensitive skin.

Clinical Allergy Specialist (Current Employee), Columbus, GAJune 11, 2014
Pros: work life balance
Cons: job security
The company overall provide a good salary to pay my bills, but the job security is very poor. The company is base only on allergy testing and Treatment and this how the revenue come in for the company. When you are hire you think that you will be able to go to work and doctors referral patients just like they do for other healthcare services, but you are a sales representative. If you are not allergy testing and treatment or you are place at a clinic that is not high volume in patients you could very well be laid off.

Very Corrupt
CAS (Former Employee), SCMay 22, 2014
Pros: starting salary was decent
Cons: poor management, corporate is out of touch, unethical
I was with this company for over 2 years, and although it seemed great for the initial 6 months, I slowly realized there was a huge disparity between corporate and the people in the field. Corporate is pretty clueless. They chase the almighty dollar, obviously this is a business, but they will throw you under the bus in a heartbeat. It's difficult because CASs are the ones in the field every day, but when there is an issue with a clinic, doctor, or billing, we have no one to help us. Account managers are basically cheerleaders for corporate and harp on the number of allergy tests you get done in a day.

Are you comfortable with testing people who are not medically indicated for it? Are you comfortable running up people's premiums for unnecessary medical treatment? If you are, then you'll do great in this company.

If you are applying for grad schools or looking for other jobs, then this is okay for a year (tops). Most of the day you might not be very busy, so it's great if you need to study or get other work done. Otherwise, find something better!!!
