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 – more... 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. – less

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 – more... 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!!! – less

Worst Company to work for. DONT be FOOLED!
CAS (Former Employee), TXApril 22, 2014
Pros: pay and
Cons: unethical practice, unprofessional account manager, very unorganized, basically like a sales job than patient care.
I was with this company for 3 months. UAS decided to discontinue the contract with the Doctor basically not promising me another job. No job security at all. They will close your clinic when ever they want. This company has no respect for the employees or Patient Care. The RISE UP values is BULLSh**. Account Manager was very unprofessional and lacked – more... knowledge of what shes suppose to do.
During orientation/training they will sugar coat everything and let you hear what you want to hear.

This company just cares about money and numbers! – less

This is a sales job
Clinical Allergy Specialist (Current Employee), Dallas,TxApril 16, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits, patient care
Cons: unethical practices, and this company is money hungry, they will throw you under the bus to make budgets.
This is a sales job. You are pretty much kinda like a pharmaceutical sales person but you do not even make half of what they make. This company would prosper if they learned to appreciate their employees more. Although they do put on a facade by sending you turkeys and yearly paper weight keepsakes. Do not be fooled if you do not make your quota they – more... will fire just as fast as they hired you. There is no job security the pay is pretty good so are the benefits. Be careful they will make it seem like this job is great then you get out of training and reality sinks in. – less

horrible training
CAT (Former Employee), VAApril 4, 2014
Pros: got to see the riverwalk
Cons: horrible training
This company sounds great to start with, but they lie about the amount of training you will receive. They bring you to San Antonio, TX for a week of crazy training...everyone passes by the way...and they did not teach any of the billing that I was required to do. My CAS who was supposed to be training me spent more of her time texting on her phone, – more... than teaching me. I had no patients, and then was told I was on my own. Horrible experience. – less

Certified Allergy Technician (Current Employee), Shelbyville, KYJanuary 7, 2014
Stared at the wall all day until they shut my clinic down. It was busy at first but issues with insurance came up and the management would not deal with it. Finally, the Doctors had enough of it and ending the contract.

Great benefits
Clinical Allergy Technician (Current Employee), Shawnee, KSDecember 29, 2013
A typical day consist of sterilizing of my clinic, allergy testing of patients, calling of insurances, and scheduling appointments. All this is done by me, once the physician recommends the patient for allergy testing. Once a patient commits to immunotherapy, I mix their medications for their treatment. The most enjoyable part about my job is meeting – more... new patient and reconnecting with my existing ones. – less

Unstable and poor management
Area Account Manager (Former Employee), anonymousDecember 13, 2013
Pros: good experience for entry level cas psotions.
Cons: horrible management and direction the company is going.
Management only cares about the numbers not the employees. It is great experience for new grads in the CAS position. If you want management experience, run away. They want you to increase your "numbers" but by looking at them and being "strategic and tactful" which does nothing because you can not effect your numbers positively by starring at them, – more... you have to make it happen. The company is unstable due to only offering one service and insurance companies are finding out it is in some cases fraudulent due to improper billing. – less

Great benefits but be flexible!
Clinical Allergy Specialist (Current Employee), Cushing, OKNovember 26, 2013
Pros: great benefits. great opportunities.
Cons: poor comunication between field and corporate. things change constantly.
UAS is an exciting company to work for. They offer great benefits and decent pay for a recent college graduate. It is great experience to be in charge of your own clinic and create relationships with doctors. There are little things in every day work that do create a little bit of animosity like corporate changes things constantly and they are ridiculously – more... hard to get a hold of. However, there will be issues like this with any job or career you choose to participate in. You just have to be flexible. – less

Not what they appear
Clinical allergy technician (Former Employee), Plano, TXNovember 11, 2013
Pros: medical field
Cons: unpredictable work environment, kind of lonely at times
This company recently transferred hands and is not as concerned about their employees well-being as they once were. Marketed as a patient care focused, allergy immunotherapy company, this company is actually a sales and metrics driven entity ruining and influencing Doctor-patient care from the inside out.

Work itself is not too difficult, but one must – more... be organized and highly willing to call patients over and over again to convince them to find the time to come into the office to get tested so you can convince them to be on immunotherapy. the company expects 3 out of every 4 patients you test to go on immunotherapy injections or else your job will be threatened by corporate within 4-5 months after you start. So unless you like your job being threatened or you are an amazing salesman or woman with a biology degree I would consider another company first. – less

It all depends on where you are placed
CAS (Current Employee), TxAugust 13, 2013
Pros: You get a lot of experience and they are willing to employ you right out of college. You get to manage your own patient care and office. Management dose not micro manage you to a point. They offer several performance based insentives. Hours and benefits are good. Healthcare is free for the employee. Mos people have doctors hours. The tretment – more... you offer works and is effective.

Cons: Your performance is tied to the doctor you are assigned to. The number one goal is tests and if you are not getting enough they let you know. If your clinic is in a welthy area with multiple providers you will be successful but smaller clinics are penilised for having less patient flow even if you do not control this aspect.

If you are lucky you will be placed in a large clinic in a wealthy area with a provider who is involved and is dedicated to patient care. If your provider is not involved you can expect to be cold calling a lot of people trying to get them to test for allergies. If you are in a small town you can expect to exhaust the qualified patients quickly and then you will be continuously asked why you are not meeting quotas, and this may or not be your fault. But if you are lucky and are in a multiple provider clinic who see over 80 people a day you can expect bonuses and possibly moving up quickly. Just remember you are only as good as your last months testing numbers and most of your chain of command do not know who you are unless you are the very top or very bottom. – less
