Fast paced, nice coworkers for the most part, travel can be long
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – WV – September 30, 2018
I liked my job. The management was good at organizing but lacked in employee communication, favortism at the job, and fast paced. No lunch most days or if we did get a lunch it was 10-15 minutes. Hard to take off needed days due to high volume numbers and no coverage for my position. Long days, most days leave at 6 am and dont arrive back home till after 7pm. Underpaid for everything I did and took care of. Work 1 Saturday a month unless an event was cancelled due to weather or an unforeseen circumstance then we made it up on a Saturday. There is also an overnight each month. If you have little kids or are trying to start a family this job is not for you. I did enjoy getting off 10 days for Christmas.
Paid to travel, company pays for hotel and food for overnights, off/paid holidays
Low Pay, Poor Management, Hard to balance work and life
I enjoyed the environment at life line screening. Friendly faces. The benefits were great. I didn’t mean to leave but family emergency did come up. I would recommend this for those who can handle call centers.
Lots of turnovers. No benefits. No traing and this is a cold calling job. Large turnover on trainers, managers and site management. Would not recommend this job to anyone. This was an assignment with a temp agency. No permanent full time employees.
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Texas – August 17, 2018
This is a healthcare company that is more concerned with profit than patient care. The call center gives incorrect information to customers and the field teams are left to clean up the mess they cause. You are overworked and underpaid. You are guaranteed a bonus upon hire but the bonus program is designed for the company to make money and the employees never see a dime of it because of all the requirements attached to making the bonus.
MEDICAL ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 11, 2018
This job requires traveling with your team through out the state. There are no set hours. You may have to travel to another team to help out which will be out of state and vary from one day to a week. The pay is great, you get overtime and travel pay. I enjoyed working with my co-workers and it was nice meeting new people.
Ultrasound Technologist (Current Employee) – Michigan – June 8, 2018
If you enjoy a clicky environment when you’re supposed to be a “team”, doing majority of the heavy lifting and loading and unloading of the truck filled with equipment, being belittled by all of your “team”, watching your coworkers walk all over your manager while she plays the friend told over the manager role, never getting a lunch or a break and having to use the bathroom during your work day is frowned upon? Then this is the job for you! You are forced to train at a fast rate while being in a busy environment. Never get an employee handbook, you basically communicate via email with corporate in another state and via text with your manager and team. The nurse practitioner “thinks” they are a doctor and bills illegally to Medicare for services never rendered or talked about in the Medicare visits with the NP.
Benefits of you require them
Never seeing your family and working 12-14 hour days with no food.
Medical Assistant / Assistant Team Manager (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 5, 2018
With lifeline you have very little time with family you travel up to 3-4 hours daily for screenings so you leave at 6 a.m. and most evening not home until 8 or 9 p.m. sometimes later. Work short staff alot while seeing up to 100 people a day. Had to work a lot of Saturday. I enjoyed our team and the traveling I would do to go help other teams and meeting new people daily helping safe lifes.
Medical Assistant/Med Tech (Current Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – January 1, 2018
We drive up to 2 or 3 hours at times before starting the work day, at times participants can be inpatient and therefore being efficient and friendly is number one. I think paying attention to the employees and their needs could and will always increase the moral of work ethic in any situation. The hardest part is when you give your all, you are passionate about your job, and it goes unregconized.
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Poughkeepsie, NY – November 20, 2017
This job is not for everyone. It is a fast paced environment and you are expected to catch up quickly. I'm not sure about advancement opportunities (I'm a CMA) as I've just started a couple months ago. But my team is amazing, so far. The travel is a bit of a headache sometimes. Despite the busy environment, my team leader does his best to make sure we get time for lunch, and most days, he succeeds. Or should I say, we succeed. This is not an office job. We are traveling to a different city every day. If you cannot handle that, this is not the job for you.
Good learning experience. You get compensated for everything you do. Including travel time.
Don't always get lunch. 6AM meetups. Set up And break down of equipment daily
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Cleveland, OH – November 20, 2017
Fast paced call center; job satisfaction from saving lives; 80% of my managers very good; benefits package has a lot; not perfect (nothing is) but very good for me; moved to different positions a 2x in 5 years-opportunity to add variety to skills/increase wages; management changed last couple years – improving the whole company; have recommended LLS; co-workers are good people. Need to be mature to be here-have communication skills dealing with serious health issues.
Nationally Registered Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Independence, OH – November 19, 2017
We would meet up everyday sometimes as early as 530 am and drive 3 to 4 hours each way to do prevenative health screenings such as PAD testing, osteoporosis testing, blood draws, glucous and cholesterol testing also vital sign, blood pressure, weight and tempature. We had to try and upsale blood work to get bonuses for the month. We had to load and unload the van at every location we went to as we traveled everyday for work. Some work ays would start with a 3 to 4 hour drive time one way and work all day with sometime up to 100 plus patients than drive back home so it made for a very long day there were nights I didn't get home until 10-11 pm and have to be up and ready to meet early the next morning. We worked two Saturdays a month and thee was no room for advancement nor did they offer raises only bonuses which they only received 1 bonus in two years. Not a good company to work for.
Very fast pace, company intentions good, but hard on employees
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Independence, OH – November 11, 2017
The company does a good thing for the public, but is hard on the employees. There is a set start of day, but an unknown end of day time, employees run hard all day. The call center crams as many participants in between 9-1230, at 5 min intervals, and a lot of times double-book. Employees get 15 min for a lunch, and only after 6 hrs of work, if it's a short day, no lunch. If one stops to take a drink then they get behind. We are suppose to get a second break, but we are expected to check forms (not a break). It is suppose to be a team, but there is no team, it's every station for themselves, and very little assisting others. The good side of the job is the diversity of people and the diversity of travel, in a different town every day.
good benefits, paid travel time, time off for major holidays
short breaks, long hours, very fast pace, hard on employees
It is sometimes very stressful, it does get very busy. My co workers and upper management have been so good to me as far as some situations that I have been thru this year. I will be advancing to another position this month and I am very happy. The hardest part of the job is the stress of making your numbers. But you can get help if you are struggling , its there if you need it. Basically a person just needs to come to work and do their job. I do think that for people who stay with the company deserve a cost of living increase yearly at least.
