Small room, high volume, unsupportive company

I have been working at Minute Clinic full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Most of the people that come in are genuinely appreciative of the care you provide. The computer software is user friendly and easy to navigate.

Cons

There is a lot of pressure to get the patients out in less than 20 minutes, 5 minutes for a flu shot (it takes longer than that to sign in a new patient). There are 1001 little administrative tasks that have to be done, which is okay if it's a slow day. However, on those busy days (which is the norm), there just isn't time to get everything done. Then there is the ridiculous practice of not being able to call in sick. If you awaken one day feeling poorly, or if your child is sick, you are expected to find your own coverage. Management is totally non-supportive, saying that "it's your contractual obligation to be there". It's really all about the money..they don't want to have to close a clinic for the day (presumably because they will lose their bonuses if that occurs).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your employees as you'd like to be treated. Telling someone who has a sick child that they should "find someone else to watch them" is not supportive. Even worse, telling someone that is actually ill that they MUST go to work is just ridiculous.

    I worked at Minute Clinic full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    good pay scale, compensated for time appropriately

    Cons

    poor management, micromanagement style, timed and very punitive for doing a good, safe job. This company will hold employees back from any promotions when a visit exceeds the time allotted, but many times a patient comes in very sick, needing help, with little rescource or money. Now if you step foot inside the clinic, you will be charged if you have it or not - even if the provider could not help you. The providers do not by and large feel good about this new rule, and many times when it is charged for nothing offered, patients are disgruntled, rightly so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    company needs to apply rules and regs for patient safety, not only profit. Support for employees should reflect healthy practices for better patient care, not only profit for CVS.

    I worked at Minute Clinic part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Limited scope of practice.
    Good management in the Minneapolis, MN area.
    Fellow providers very supportive.

    Cons

    Working entirely alone; a lot of technology -ok if working, pure hell if not; busy locations are exhausting; some patients are terribly rude; MC providers do DOT physicals and I do not feel this is appropriate in this setting; working in a small room; once a patient signs in at the kiosk you are pressured to see them even if they need to be referred out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move toward the Target Clinic model where there is more space and provider works with a medical assistant.
