there is a lot of driving involved. 40 to 250 miles per day. But they do let you use a company car for that. Direct manager will not make any decision without speaking to her boss first. Also direct manager did not like tattoos so I had to wear long sleeve shirts to cover them at all times. Warehouse is very hot. no A/c. You will spend a few hours every day in there. People that work there are very nice.All of them.
nice people to work with.
driving and if you get one complaint on you they side with the facility rather than you
I loved working, for SMS. I had to leave due to a move to Ventura, California. I liked the fact that we, as Respiratory Therapists, truly supplied a need in the SNF, and Rehab Centers. The nursing staff was so happy to see us! The 24/7 call could be a bit much at times due to the large coverage area, and no call rotation. They have since increased the staffing, and I'm sure it's much better. I would love to work, for them again, if I lived closer to the territory they cover in California.
Respect, and appreciation of nursing staff, schedule autonomy, company vehicle, laptop, and phone.
Billing Supervisor (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – June 2, 2018
Working at SMS was a great experience where I gained many skills and knowledge about healthcare, billing, and management. The office culture is fairly relaxed with a fast paced, high demand work load that keeps you busy all day. No day is ever the same here. The most enjoyable part of this job was the flexibility to run my own reports and analyze where I felt was needed, then to report it to upper management. This direct connection and feedback allowed me to be a contributor to the organization.
Flexible schedules, good pay, relaxed office culture
Merger changed company culture, career advancement difficult
RESPIRATORY THERAPIST (Current Employee) – Texas – January 7, 2018
My direct supervisor is awesome but it all depends on who that is in your department/area. Due to my location my days start later but the bad part is they end later. The hardest part of the job is covering a huge territory alone and not getting shift differentials for evening hours or weekends when you're on-call. The most enjoyable part of the job is the flex schedule and the company van. The benefits are horrible so I had to get my own after a few months of shopping around. There is no 401K available so you better do your own investing. I would recommend the job because I enjoy my actual patient care and building relationships with the nurses but if you need real money and to have your evenings available for family this won't last.

I have worked on and off for SMS since 2016. This is the best company I have worked for. The pay and flexible customized scheduling is great, however, you need to be able to learn care routines of residents quickly and professionally.
Delivery Technician (Former Employee) – New Berlin, WI – October 6, 2017
Worked here for 6 years constant dysfunction and then hysteria. The managers/supervisors along with the majority of warehouse workers tried hard for a better end result for the customer base. But irrational self serving upper management destroyed everything from moral to customer contracts most upper management felt entitled to a position they were completely unqualified for.
Im drawing a blank
Psychotic personalities, Nepotism, lack of common sense, refusal to learn from past mistakes.
Clerk (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 21, 2017
I was fortunate to work in an area where hours had some flexibility, which was great for work/life balance. Compensation was fair, but no raises for cost of living or performance. Very little room for advancement, unless you are in with (or related to) the right people.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Westfield, IN – June 14, 2017
The job is fine if left to do it. However, management likes to control every minute of your job. I'm surprised they do not schedule in your bathroom breaks. If not for the contract work, I would still be there.
Office Clerk (Former Employee) – New Berlin, WI – April 20, 2017
I wish I had known about this company before leaving my last job. I wouldn't of done it! No raise given a year, management is all over the place, no one is on the same page. Some people are treated unfairly.
Medical Billing Specialist (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – February 22, 2017
Did enter charges for skilled nursing facilities. Some charges were to be submitted to insurance companies and some charges were billed to the facility that were not covered by insurance companies. The best part of the job is enough work to keep busy. The hardest part of the job is coworkers are difficult to get along with.
DME Technician (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – February 9, 2017
If you liked high school we're certain click's get along you'll love this place..As long as management likes you your job is great..Once they don't your job is miserable..No raise unless your in with the boss. Benefits are the worst I've ever had especially for the medical industry. You earn PTO which they tell you to use cause it's your time that you've earned but when you try and use it you get reprimanded.Stay AWAY unless your desperate.
I enjoyed working along with different people at different facalities
Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – January 22, 2017
I enjoyed being able to go to different facilities. Being able to work along with different residents in their home. While working with them I felt with visiting with them and also doing my job. It gave the little excitement to be able to have someone to talk to.
Try (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – December 7, 2016
Terrible management! I was told I couldn't have the days off I was promised when hired. Also, I was placed oncall for a weekend that I didn't even know about until the day before. This was also my first time being oncall. I was never asked if I was comfortable with it. I quit that day. The pay wasn't worth it!
