I have been working at MediwarePros
Mediware has experienced a great deal of growth primarily through acquiring companies in similar markets. This creates a great deal of opportunity both short and long term. Good employees are valued and the Management looks for ways to utilize them in different areas of the company as the needs change. A good place to be for specialists and even better place for generalists or specialists willing to learn new things.
The office in Lenexa does try to do some extra things for the employees, like lunches/cook outs, contests like a chili cook off or best salsa. The ice cream truck comes regularly in the summer and last year the office spent a day at the KC Royals game and there is an annual Holiday Party with food, drink, music, etc.
Most employees are helpful and willing to help new employees be successful.Cons
Performance expectations are high, but based on my expereince with other similar companies, they are not as high as other competitors, particularly in the Kansas City area. You are expected to work hard and at times that means more than 40 hours a week, but I would not call this a sweatshop. The parking lot is usually empty by 6:00 PM most nights.
High emphasis on cost management, which means spending money on anything is highly scrutinized and layoffs are common in the past few years. Most, but not all, employees that are laid off are not providing value to the company and if they are aware of the world around them, are not surprised when it happens.
Internal processes are generally not standardized or documented, making it a challenge for someone new.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Be sensitive to the impact of rigid goals and metrics, as well as continuous pressure to manage costs. Focusing agressively on short term results will have adverse long term effects.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Mediware in August 2013.Interview Details
Applied for the position via the company's website after seeing a link on Indeed.com. Was contacted a week later by the Hiring Manager for an interview with him and two of his team members. (One was a Trainer and the other was a Systems Administrator.) Questions were mostly about background, behavioral and some technical. A few days later, I had a telephone interview with HR to address more behavioral type questions and also to give an overview of the company. A week later, was contacted again to have a third interview with the Director of Client Services from another office and also the VP of Client Services for the company which included more technical heavy questions. They started the Reference checking process and submitting to a background check a few days before I received an offer.Interview Questions

- I came from a clinical background and not a technical background but the manager has a different approach on interviewing and was looking for more of a well-rounded candidate. Answer Question
