Lots of changes since Iowa took over
Billing Specialist (Former Employee) – Peoria – October 1, 2018
Billing and Credits are very underpaid. Pto is accrued at 7.34 biweekly. Your accrued Pto is also used for your holidays and you have to set aside 16 hours before they will approve time off. If you want a 40 hr vacation you have to have 56 hours saved which is difficult if you have a family.
The office is production based and your are accountable for gaps in your day. A work from home option is available after 6 mths of satisfactory employment but production doubles and they do not help you pay for internet. You also have to return once a week for any printing and meetings. You have 30 mins for lunch but have to punch in and out at your desk so you arent really receiving a full 30 min lunch period. You are only alloted 3 missed days in a year before corrective action starts. You are allowed to punch 7 mins early but not 1 second later or a tardy is counted against you. The building is separate from the hospital but you still have to dress business casual no jeans, no scrubs. Gym shoes are allowed. You get a discount in the cafeteria and can swipe it to your badge to be taken from your paycheck. The first floor cafe in the hospital is also nice. I would definitely weigh your options. If you can sit in a cubicle all day and do not mind someone walking around checking up on you, or dont have any responsibilities outside of lunch and breaks, then you will be fine. If you can't handle micromanaging and the fact everything is about policy , then this is definitely not the place for you.
Flex shift or four 10 hour shifts, cafeteria
Pay, micromanaged, no cell phones in office. You have to purchase an ipod or mp3 player to listen to music, favortism and lots of drama.
