    Pros

    I can't think of any good points with Apria

    Cons

    Nasty people to work for. Totally unorganized management system. Never any follow through on any plan of action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house. Get rid of upper management. Do your homework and hire real business leaders. Its too bad your patients are so unhappy with your service.

    I have been working at Apria Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Telecommuting possible, reliable paycheck, paid personal and sick time that accrues with every pay period. Paid vacation.

    Cons

    Apria is a company desperately trying to adapt to the ever changing Medicare landscape and failing miserably at it. They put policies in place one week and change them the next. Employees are supposed to adapt on the fly and work on accounts when they aren't even sure what the "policy of the day" is. Be prepared for an endless stream of emails, meetings, and FYI moments every day just to remind you of the changes from the day before.
    This is a company that truly operates on the "do more with less" principle....read that to mean....Our CEO makes 3 million a year, but you aren't getting a raise this year. It also means that we are installing not one, not two, but three systems to make sure you are working every minute of the day. (all under the guise of "staffing concerns"). It means continual pleas for "voluntary" overtime to keep up with unreasonable upper management demands.
    This company is a real life example of Einstein's theory of insanity....Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome. In short, if you have any other choice for employment....take it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    START OVER! Take a hard look at your policies. Your employees are people, not numbers on a spreadsheet. There is a reason your attrition rate is one of the highest in the industry. You cannot continue to use people to their breaking point and beyond with no reward. You have created a business that runs on an atmosphere of fear among your employees.

    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

    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.

    I worked at Apria Healthcare full-time (more than an year)

    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.
