Admission Coordinator (Former Employee) – Fairfax, VA – June 13, 2012
Unfortunately my stay with this company was short, due to the situation after my 90 day probationary period was complete, the corporate office arrived and informed the 4 of us in the office that our jobs were being cut and the operation was being moved out of state.
Otherwise, I enjoyed the ladies I worked with. It was a very busy office, however well organized.
Great team of nurses. Loved the patients and joy of being able to help and educate.
BSRN (Former Employee) – Marion, IN – November 16, 2018
Job kept you busy and your days went fast. Great group of nurses, Social workers and doctors to work with. We had a great Manager when hired for several years and then hemodialysis management and Home dialysis were separated. Current Hemodialysis manager is great and fair and works as part of the team. Home dialysis changed drastically and became like walking on egg shells and you hoped you were on the good side. Not good atmosphere with patients reporting and several staff with no results. Overall, great place to work!
Great team of Nurses, doctors, and Social workers. Good compensation packages and offers.
Provided excellent training, but the compensation is not enough to stay
Hemodialysis Nurse (Former Employee) – Hazel Crest, IL – November 14, 2018
I loved the staff and the patients, but the salary and benefits fall short. They do invest in training you to be competent in your role. Hard to have a good work life balance, because of difficulty finding coverage. Always being short staff is another challenge, it becomes tired. You eventually move on
It is what it is, don't expect too much from here.
Assembler and Assembler Tester/Technician (Former Employee) – Concord, CA 94520 – November 14, 2018
You can start off good with your first few month of working here. If you seek career advancement while working in the production area, you MUST ask and always be pursuant of that desired advancement. Career advancement isn't immediate. My promotion was effective in the work place, but wasn't effective on paper. I wasted 6 months working as an Assembler Technician while being paid as an Assembler salary. When asked for a follow-up, management dismissed it.
Depending on your work station, your coworkers can either be cooperative or competitive. This can affect your work ethic. It is a production site, people need to be cooperative but some say otherwise.
Management is lacking. Most of the time, they are just there to make their pay and leave. If you have issues with a coworker or personal matters needed to be addressed, they'll hear you out but it is in your hands to make your decisions. They have this look of disagreement on the production employees.
If production schedule is behind or there is a huge work order needed to be done, expect lots of overtime. If you're a working student, busy at home, or can't afford to spend most of the time at work, this place will be your undoing.
Benefits are basic. You get health, dental, vision, 401k, life, etc.
They hire new people constantly, parking in this location is terrible. They have available valet parking for those who can't find a parking spot.
Engineer (Current Employee) – Ogden, UT – November 14, 2018
Fresenius is a great place to get comfortable. Benefits are awesome, but compensation isn't the best, either on the line or in a professional setting. There's desire to improve and become more efficient, but no desire to change the status quo. The culture is not a project-team friendly culture, and change is very slow.
Very cutthroat, I was new to the job and they gave me one of hardest states to do. It was like they wanted me to fail. And then they let me go saying I was rude in emails and made loads of errors. I was a new person new to field and got assigned to do stuff that someone who been there for a year should be doing. Was never trained the right way, trained by someone who was there maybe 5 months.
Was thrown into a desk and assigned states to do. Never could get help as manager, and our team leads were never at their desk always in "meetings" or just gone.
Left a full time job for this and got let go a week before I went full time here.
Also never taught how to respond to emails, told not to be honest in emails after I sent them. Place is a joke... regretted leaving my last job for this one.
If you are not a "favorite" then the working environment is extremely stressful. The only thing that is important to management is your productivity and over 180 day aging. Company expects employees to meet a quota, but having access to the tools to accomplish this quota are not of high importance.
User Security Administrator (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – November 11, 2018
I enjoyed working there & liked all employees. Every 2nd Wednesday of each month they had a "pizza day", which was nice. However, I would have liked the opportunity to have become a full time employee.
Good place to start a career but if you want to advance without a nursing degree, it's very difficult. I would like to advance within the company but, with a master degree without nursing backgrounds, I find it nearly impossible. Especially in Minnesota. It's a great company for renal patients and their families.
PCT (Patient Care Technician) (Former Employee) – Niles, IL – November 8, 2018
Started work around 4am worked on average 12hrs or more, no advancement, poor management, lots of duties not enough pay. Also no advancement staff not qualified to preform duties. Favoritism and rude unprofessional manager
Team Leader Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – November 8, 2018
Stepping stool learning experience. I am still learning the details of all the dialysis components including spk/tv. for profit organization so seems like everything is based on $$ signs not all patient care
PCT (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC – November 7, 2018
A wonderful place to work, specially if you like work in places that help people like the Red Cross and you will learn new things everyday. The most part I love was that you meet different people and learn to love them.
