Micromanagement, unrealistic quotas, bad customer service, neverending conference calls with maangement that can get repetitive and do not contribute to results

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Set realistic quotas to avoid high sales rep turnover, do not oversaturate market with sales reps who are likely going to stick around for 6 months-1 year.

    Pros

    Employees are friendly for the most part, depends on what day it is. (Sometimes friendly, sometimes moody, sometimes could care less.)

    Cons

    Lack of employee training, Lack of consistant management interaction between employees, Lack of over all consistancy,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue as to what is going on in your offices. You have front line employees that don't care but anything, but will tell you what you want to hear just to keep you off thier back. Employees that will throw others under the bus just to make themselves look good. You also can not expect employees who haven't been trained in one area to know how to do a specific job or even know that they were suppose to do that job. You have to tell, teach and or explain, we can't read your minds or know EVERYTHING about the workings of the company if we don't do that specific job or have never seen or heard of that specific job.

    Pros

    Benefits package is decent
    Compensation is above most in the industry
    Opportunity for career growth is available

    Cons

    Disorganized and cumbersome environment due to overlapping processes, procedure and protocol. Makes it hard to learn quickly and can be discouraging. Managements expectation for results with out support leaves an environment solely for those who can survive on a desert island.
    If you are not a fighter, you will not excell, so one of two things will happen, you will become a fighter and loose yourself in the position, then get laid off, or you will quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop talking about it, and start Building a focus that is centered on people, that is genuine and sincere and Apria will turn around and continue to flourish, the customers want competence, understanding, compassion and an HME company that is easy to work with, since in most cases our patients have much too much to worry about. They do not want one, or a few of these things, they want and DESERVE ALL of the above. The last thing they need is to find another struggle when they are in need of service, Calling India does not put the customer or the referral at ease, being transferred to multiple call centers because employees are not cross trained to effectively assist with a need does not put the customer at ease, having high turn over in management does not put the customer at ease. And, terminating relationships with employees who have established a solid rapport with customers and referalls over the span of 5-20 years experience, whose sole existance with the company is what keeps those customers and referrals loyal and returning to Apria despite the cumbersome processes is a lack in judgement. HME is a business, but it is a health care business, and those running the corporation need to hold themselves and the decisions they make to an ethical standard that aligns with their customers views on health care.
