Would not recommend.
Customer Service Technician/Driver (Former Employee) –  Miramar, FLOctober 3, 2018
I wouldn't recommend this job to my worst enemy, even if I had one. It's slavery. There is no life balance, the training is terrible, the pay isn't worth it, it can become very stressful, you end up having to work overtime almost every day, plus you'll have to work on call on your days off once or twice a month. If you let them, they will work you 12 days straight. Yes, there are a couple genuinely nice and hardworking people that work here, but still, there is too much politics and there is no room for advancement. Hopefully, you'll make the right choice and think twice about working here.
Pros
Not much.
Cons
A whole lot.

Was a good place to learn all kinds of equipment repair
Bio Med Tech 1 / Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNSeptember 25, 2018
Pick up equipment from location (if can not repaired at location), repair, return.
Learned how to work on a lot of different equipment and PM a lot of equipment.
Upper mgmt in Memphis was a little shaky (new) but worked with employees, even if the still did not fully understand what may happen with schedule if this was done....but they worked to makes things work for both customers and employees which was a big plus.
A lot of good attitudes for the most part, did your job you stayed out of trouble. This was a job, if you slacked, it causes issues for the fellow employees. All it would take is one bad apple to mess things up, and I think mgmt gave a little too much forgiveness. Being on the road, delivering or repairing, that can cause big issues, to have to go deliver equipment for someone else.
Worst part was having to pick up someone else's slack, which would put you behind.
Best part was meeting different employees in different hospitals.
Pros
good place to learn, to branch out
Cons
very small work force in local offices, one bad apple can cause issues for the whole office

developer (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, MNSeptember 10, 2018
Stuck in VB6 land. No source control. No written specs for code. One cranky old guy controlled everything. Never take a job where they say they will convert to another technology, but don't have the budget yet.
Pros
Office facility is a palace. Great cafeteria
Cons
Office facilty in in the farend of suburbia, and very hard to access with public transit

Fun environment, nice individuals would go back if they’ll have me. I think I would try to travel a bit more from hospital to hospital not state to state

Try somewhere else, unless you have no other choice
Biomedical Equipment Technician I (Former Employee) –  Chelmsford, MAAugust 6, 2018
Stagnant. Tons of equipment everywhere, no one trained to work on them except 1 or 4 people. Those 1 or 4 people do everything in their power to stay out of the office and out on assignments. Available manpower, but management is too scared to invest in any single person. Two 4+ year employees left for better jobs before my temp position expired. Some might make assumptions and say the company was probably better without them but I knew them to be hardworking people who were just sick of the unfair and let's be frank pointless and time wasting excuse of a job that UHS offers. Also, it isn't localized, it's incredibly common across the company. As I traveled to many different assignments in coop with local districts, the story was the same everywhere I went.

Driver
Medical Equipment Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Westchester, OHAugust 6, 2018
Hours where ridiculous. They work you 18 days straight, and your busy the hole time. Management was the absolute worst tho, they only care about themselves.
Pros
alright pay
Cons
no time to spend with your family

Great place to gain knowledge and expertise
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNJuly 26, 2018
Leadership all came from CareFusion so if you worked there, it will look at feel much the same. In account management/sales, you are expected to make 5-10 calls per day on existing and prospective clients including cold calling, work collaboratively with operations team and clinical team members to drive new business and maintain existing business. Business planning, time and territory management, accurate forecasting are a must and take up a considerable amount of time out of the field. Training can be at the corporate office, at a company paid for meeting, or virtual depending on the course taken. The company does an excellent job of providing you with the tools you need to be successful and the marketing department is top notch. Most team members are positive and the culture overall is positive. Senior management is supportive, but at the local level, management is more of a micromanaged style. Great place to learn and to expand your knowledge portfolio, but not a lot of room for growth.
Cons
Contracting department needs a revamp as does the comp plan

When I worked here the people made the job a lot better
Customer Account Representative (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNJuly 25, 2018
The workplace culture was great. Management was easy to work with and for. At the time my Operation Manager was the best I'd worked for and then he left the company and they brought someone else in that only cared for his self.

Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNJuly 16, 2018
Does not care if you have a imediate family member in the hospital dying. They still require you to work. And will find any reason to get rid of you even if people who have been there less time make the same mistakes

You get your case load a day prior from scheduler, pick up laser from storage and head out. Your Mgr is based out of Houston. Most of the time you get a case added after a long exhausted week and drive to a different city. Drivers have crashed on the road for lack of sleep! Thats how demanding it is. Great company bad Mgmt !!!!

Not a horrible place, but not great
Customer Service Tech (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJune 24, 2018
You're on the road driving most of the day, every day, which is good because you get to do what you have to do without supervision. It's loading, and unloading medical equipment all day with not so great pay. Overtime happens, but then management complains about it.. but doesn't do anything to counter it. Could be run better, which would make things easier. There are career options that pop up within the company, which is nice. If you're ok with driving on a daily basis, then it's a great job. If you want a bigger career, then it's exactly that, a job. Only weekend hours are for on call associate, so have a Monday through Friday job. 7 paid holidays which includes Black Friday! Have to work to earn your PTO, not just given a set amount after 90 days. New policies/rules come out for your position from someone who never worked in that position before nor has knowledge of how to really perform the position.
Pros
Career advancements, minimal supervision required to do job
Cons
Expensive benefits, must earn paid time off
