    Former Employee - Medicaid Collector in Valdosta, GA

    I worked at American HomePatient full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice and professional place to work, great pay and benefits, vacation time, I loved working there. The supervisors are great and very helpful. Great bonuses, I had a lot of fun working there, holidays we always had an office parties. The owners are wonderful christian people and are very fair. I miss them

    Cons

    Sitting in a cubby all day long rally took a toll on me, I'm a high energy type of person so it was hard for me to sit there all day. Even though you get 2 breaks, 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon (which helped a lot) still was just too much sitting for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work

    I have been working at American HomePatient full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Those who excel can learn healthcare management experience to use to further their career in a more effectively ran company.

    Cons

    Patient care is not the number one focus as it should be. It's all about numbers, numbers, numbers. Trust level through all levels of the company is nonexistent. Being at the sleep support center in Nashville is a joke. Constant petty thefts and total lack of continuity make for a dismal outlook for this company. Totally unprofessional coworkers and management that does nothing to prevent or correct. Morale across all departments is low, and is rare to see a person smiling. Unrealistic sales "goals" and being penalized financially for taking vacation days makes it hard to want to stay employed by AHOM. Low performing employees impact the financial success of high performers negatively through an unfair "team based bonus". Employees feel like just a number, and that they are insignificant in the overall scheme of things. Turnover is high, and will ultimately lead to the failure of this company if nothing is corrected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the low performers, and make an incentive for the good employees to stay. Better health/dental insurance. Hire an HR liaison that is up to date on current times and is more efficient. Proper training across both SSC locations.

    I have been working at American HomePatient full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's only slightly better than being unemployed.

    Cons

    No organization, terrible OS, zero raises, absolutely no chance for advancement, a monkey on a keyword has a higher IQ than the majority of the sales reps, management that come in noticeably drunk, the new ceo says he cares about the employees but stopped all promotions for the peons, the company has never given a cost of living increase because inflation apparently doesn't exist inside the building, suck ups go far in this company, there are more ways to lose money than make money, the company says they care about the patients but the reality is the only thing upper management cares about is numbers, no holiday parties/bonus/gifts, over all this company is a joke. Medicare should take a serious look at this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as if they matter. The employees in every department need serious raises. A huge amount of employee's have to work 2 jobs to survive. If this company gets audited it's going to shut down.

    I have been working at American HomePatient full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There isn't one good reason unless you bust your butt for little pathetic bonuses!!!

    Cons

    Discrimination, favoritism, rude people, poor management, no structure, barely any training before your thrown out on your own & then once you mess up because you were barely trained everyone makes you feel stupid making little comments like "you ask weird questions" or "don't up you know what your doing by now"? All of the people I work for are all WOMEN. A bunch of HORMONAL HAGS NO opportunity for advancement, NO RAISES, LAUGHABLE BONUSES etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all of the people that have been there for years!!! The truth is a lot of these people have been in for years which means you know how they work by now are you really happy with it? Perfect example it's like taking a test over & over & over again eventually you will get tired and grow bored and it will start showing in your results!!! Hire new people and get rid of the grumpy mean old and young people...

    over worked and under paid

    Current Employee - Customer Service Representative in Fort Worth, TX
    Current Employee - Customer Service Representative in Fort Worth, TX

    I have been working at American HomePatient full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Our branch has an amazing branch manager that will do anything from paperwork to deliveries. Pay was not great but it is an entry level job. I would recommend this to anyone graduating high school!

    Cons

    Training was very little before they set you out to be on your own. I have been told no advancements or raises for the next 5-6 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be aware that training will benefit everyone and will most definitely help with long term employment of CSR'S

    Current Employee - Service Tech in Richmond, VA

    I have been working at American HomePatient full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Better than cleaning toilets.
    Earn one day vacation per month of full time employment.
    5 paid holidays per year (but you'll be on call for 3 of them)

    Cons

    No raises, you get what you're hired at, so make sure you haggle for top dollar during hiring process.
    No company matching 401k.
    No work life balance, even when you're not on call (which is 26 weeks out of the year) you are still at the behest of the company.
    Absolutely no loyalty to employees, I gained my job at the expense of an employee who had been there for 16 years (and had only made it to 10.50 an hr thru raises). They had tried to trick him into resigning as to avoid paying him his accrued vacation time.
    If you see the area Vice President John, someone is getting fired at your office, as firing employees appears to be the only job he has.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a simple service tech, there is nothing I could say they would even care to hear.

    Pros

    People are great, lots of time off, GM works with us, it feels good to help patients. we do get small quarterly bonuses

    Cons

    pay increases went from 18 months to 2 years. No room for advancement, on call. No overtime pay, we just get comp time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to keep good employees you should let the local GM decide if they can do sallry increases before the 2 year mark.
