Core work involved collecting observed urine specimens, data entry, labeling the samples and preparing them for shipment for a inpatient/outpatient drug rehabilitation clinic with occasional other duties. The hours were typically less than twenty hours a week, which even for the decent pay for the work will not sustain you very well if you need to make ends meet. There are also no benefits of any kind. Though the job itself is very low key, in a clinical office environment, though for 95% of my time there was without A/C of any kind and was offered poor temporary solutions to get by. Very bad for summer and winter. Downtime is typical. The majority of patients aren't a hassle, clinicians are nice enough (some are more annoying then others) aside from one or two EXTREMELY rude nurses and management overall is very nice and generally know what they're doing. Essentially, you have three "bosses", the clinic aka client, All Med who pays you and handles administrative issues that arise but you almost never interact with and the diagnostic lab you technically do work for.
My biggest complaint is that I was laid off without warning, told it was due to "business decisions we weren't privy to" between All Med and the client and diagnostic lab, completely unrelated to my performance. But then I noticed that the same day I was let go by All Med they reposted the exact same position. Thus meaning that I was most likely lied to regarding the reason for my firing, I was told "I'd be considered for any new openings" but also that nothing was available at the moment. Interesting. Anothermore... thing to notice is that they call the position "seasonal" but there is never a defined end of employment, I suspect its more of a cover for firing employees suddenly with a preemptive excuse. This summates to an egregious lack of transparency.less
Low stress, weekly pay, simple work
Hours are slim, no lunch break, no benefits, no advancement, little transparency
Licensed Specimen Collector (Current Employee) – Fall River, MA – July 16, 2018
This company deals with substance abuse. I was told l was doing a great job, atleast that what l thought. l revied feedback from the company everything was good. Then got blindsided by a coworker and lost my job with this company.
I collected and submitted medical specimens, took medical histories (especially drug histories), filled in forms and sent in specimens each day. The co-workers mostly were competitive and not helpful, altho 1 was. The training wasn't very comprehensive or complete, but I did the best I could. They just gave me the hrs they could "keep me busy", and the Dr I worked for was sick & off work part of the time, so that wasn't helpful. I appreciate the time and pay they DID give me, though.
Gave me a temporary job and compesation.
Some of co-workers were nasty to me, and not helpful.

Production Worker (Former Employee) – Texas – March 2, 2018
Leardership in some divions is amazing but in others not so great. The future of company is heading in great direction if they could weed out bad management. I would say it could be one of the best companies to work for. Very fast paced stressfull at times. Most of people you work are friendly willing to help. Pay is ok but not great. Benefits are good but get better with years you work there.
PRN PHLEBOTOMIST (Current Employee) – United States – February 19, 2018
My experience with my management was sub-par. However, when I reported my experience to a representative assigned to evaluate employee experience, I was given a full opportunity to state my case and informed that I would be invited to return as a phlebotomist for this company.
All medical was nice , ameritox and the clinic i was contracted with was shady and hot honest
Specimen Processor (Former Employee) – Jackson, KY – February 15, 2018
All medical was great , however the ameritox and the clinic I was contracted with was shady and now following laws/rules. What was the final straw was the clinic in a new investigation and our supervisor with ameritox was not going to mention it .
At the beginning of my day I would set up and my boss would come in before the shift and show me new things and it would make my job easier. the people were nice sometimes the doctor would be a little angry but that was it.

Not honest, giving false information to their staff. They are not for staffing their clients, if they don't want to hire within 60 days of placement. Then they lie to their employees and end the contract with false information from the client
Specimen Collector (Former Employee) – Staten Island, NY – January 24, 2018
I enjoyed working for this company. They were always there if there was a problem that might of came up and was fixed. I have from time to time called to see if there were any other type of positions available to be place but there wasn't. i truly liked working for them.
Medical Recruiter (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – January 8, 2018
So far, I like working for All Medical. The culture is unmatched. Great feel to the office. There are testing out a training program which I think will get better with time but it's not bad starting out. I would recommend this job to someone straight out of college, or to someone who is looking for a career. If you've already started your career, this would basically be like starting over. If you're good with that, then go for it. If not, find an associate level position.
