Technician (Former Employee) –  DenverMay 19, 2017
The pay is low for the type of work you do. New Management do not have it together, always issues. Their priority is you making them money and not patient care and horrible training and communication.
Pros
Working in operating rooms through out the region.
Cons
Half of your job is driving and delivering.

LASER TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) –  6625 West 78th St # 300 Minneapolis, MN 55439May 15, 2017
UHS is a great company to work for..A typical day at work would include driving to two or more facilities throughout the day to run laser for surgery. I would say the hard part is dealing with angry doctors and being stuck in traffic..I recommend this type of job to someone who likes spontaneous work because everyday you are somewhere new and dealing with different people.

Corrupt chain of command
Technician (Current Employee) –  Tampa, FLApril 3, 2017
Manager fires everyone who works hard. And his boss knows it, but does nothing about it. This could be a great company if the manager and director had any loyalty to it. UHS is hated through out the state by everyone who has ever done business with or for it.
Pros
Paychecks are paid
Cons
Can't trust anyone above the service people
