    Pros

    I met one mildly interesting person. I learned that I NEVER want to work an office job again, that having a cubicle is not cool, and that my self respect and dignity are worth more than whatever this place could offer. Honestly, working here was a good insight to the hell that most Americans put up with, and a hell that I will never participate in.

    Cons

    Disgustingly unqualified, uneducated management who were somehow able to snake their way to the top. This was my first professional job, but quickly realized I was far more intelligent than the people in command. A whole bunch of idiots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's nothing you can do because you're just a mid-level "manager" with someone breathing down your neck, and with someone above them and so on.

    Pros

    Able to set your own schedule in many positions; once you learn the ropes, many will listen to your ideas; average benefit coverage; able to offer innovation

    Cons

    Lackluster management; many new hires put into positions of power without knowing what the company sells and offers; substandard staff; little investment into future growth; low salaries compared to industry; constant worry of layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be brave and invest in growth through technology and better employees; stop second guessing every decision; stop hiring outside expensive consultants, many of your own employees know what to do to grow!

    Pros

    It appeared while at training, other regions for this company seemed satisfied. Perhaps it was just my region that was completely dysfunctional. The training staff was helpful.

    Cons

    Patient care is the LAST concern of this company. C'mon people, we are delivering oxygen to people that can't breath...not flat screen TVs! The management only cares about numbers which makes fellow employees distrust each other. I was hired by a great manager that was promptly fired after I signed on. I read the reviews prior to interviewing and this person really made me believe there was still good to be found in employment here. I subsequently had two other managers in my first month that were clueless.

    Pros

    Freedom to set your own schedule.

    Cons

    No raises in 2014 company wide. Benefits are not very good. Commission is scaled based on % to quota and full commission payout is virtually impossible to reach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Devise a compensation system for sales that is fair.

    Pros

    other than money and fairly decent benes, there are not many. some people are very nice but watch out for the butt kissers, they will back stab you to get ahead.

    Cons

    this goes to BEST company to work for ever..LOL are you kidding me, we have the highest turn over ratio ive ever seen. management doesn't give a dam about you or me, only their precious numbers. not sure how long you have been here but they need to drug test you. ask all the 150 employees would you leave if you could? you will have about 6 left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start caring about your employees not just the ones you like. your favoritism makes us sick

    Pros

    independent, professional medical sales.

    Cons

    Training and education is left up to you. There is no support from upper management. Branch and sales are separate but yet are supposed to work together even though branch manager could care less about you even though you are making your numbers. The ASM, what a joke if you want any support, forget about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Patient care should be the number one priority, that is why we are in the healthcare field but Apria doesn't care, discuss, or want you to be concerned about the individual patient. There is no team, liaisons make the relationships and maintain the hospitals while the sales reps bank off of them. Apria has a very bad reputation amongst doctors and hospital staff.

    Pros

    You wont find one single person - out of 150 employees that wouldn't stop to help out with whatever you need. The compassion and determination that each employee and management has is what makes Apria unique.. Each person is absolutely wonderful, always showing appreciation to all employees with great insurance, pay and the ability to move up in the company. Many perks but you need to take that job offer too enjoy all Apria does for their employees.

    Cons

    The learning curve at first can be tough, but don't let it deter you one single bit. You have a question you can literally go up to any manager and they will drop what they are doing to help or find someone to help you. With the 5 week training class they offer is hands on - and is awesome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing, Apria should be #1 on Best Place to Work in Colorado.
