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

Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXMarch 31, 2017
You are able to work independently, but each shift is responsible for ensuring that all areas are properly stocked. Any slack between rotations can cause a significant imbalance in duties for the next shift.
Pros
Learning a new set of skills
Cons
Short breaks and lunches

Physically Challenging

Team work in a fast paced and physically demanding environment. Self starter strong organizational and priority driven abilities. If you like to walk for hours on end averaging about 20 miles a day. Like to clean very much like doing dishes all day. Like to go in sick patients rooms to inventory the equipment daily than this is the job for you.
Pros
not sitting in an office able to move around and be on your own accord.
Cons
No down time constantly on the move may lack opporunity for a break.

Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Anderson, SCMarch 1, 2017
I worked for UHS for about 2 years. I started as an On Demand employee, where I worked as needed. After 10 months, without a degree, I was promoted to Supervisor based off of hard work and knowledge of the job responsibilities. There was always work that needed to be done. Very busy and critical work environment, which is good for me. Hardest part was managing others. Most enjoyable part was helping patients get back to good health.
Pros
Helping others
Cons
Critical environment

Stay away from this company!!!
Hospital Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Trenton, NJFebruary 9, 2017
One of the worst companys to work for the pay is great but to deal with management and all the changing guidlines isnt enough to compensate. The boss who i had was very unprofessional and wouldn't allow other employees to use PTO or schedule off even months in advance. God for bid you even call out sick! And on top of that YOU had to find the coverage not the boss. Which in my years of retail and other companies was a first! Stay away from this company as much as possible.
Pros
Hospital experience and high pay
Cons
Bad management, refusing time off, horrible co workers, no benefits as part time, no room for advancement, harassment off the job, just a bad company :(

Horrible place to work
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Sun Valley, CA 91352February 2, 2017
Extremely under paid for work given, Was told after an 8 hour shift to drive up to Sacramento and back the same night to deliver a unit needed for the next day. Told to not have any overtime, if worked over time i had to break it up and place it on days worked or forced a day off so overtime was not paid
