    I worked at U.S. Healthworks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Location was good, the staff was excellent and knowledgeable, friendly and professional staff, respectful of patients and staff. Ongoing training easy to understand.

    Cons

    Biggest challenges would be the hours you work and having to work weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you work hard and share your opinion on what can be done to improve customer service and working with patients you always have a chance for advancement.

    Pros

    To learn what not to do...

    Cons

    Management does not care about it's employees. They use you in order to advance themselves. Quality of care is poor. Customer service is poor. There is no accountability at any level of upper management. Everything is blamed on front line managers.

    Better than expected

    I have been working at U.S. Healthworks full-time

    Pros

    Everyone is super friendly and helps each other out. Workload is very consistent. It is nice to be able to treat patients without having to deal with scheduling, answering phones, marketing, billing, etc. Work week is Monday through Friday.

    Cons

    There are very limited career opportunities for providers. Merit increases barely keep pace with increases in cost of health insurance every year.

    Pros

    fast paced- clinic very easy to catch on and learn occupational.

    Cons

    stay away from this clinic, no center manager... no one to talk to about any issue or question that you maybe ..figure it out yourself .... SUPER unorganized, no training for people that has no experience, Radiologist tech are NOT MA'S I thought you needed a certificate for this but apparently not in this clinic the will give you a simple training and if you do something wrong they make a drama about it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more for your employees.
    Create an action plan for training and have an actual trainer teach the new employee and not just throw them in to the incognito

    Former Employee - Front Desk Receptionist/Referal/Discharge in Greensboro, NC

    I worked at U.S. Healthworks full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It is a learning experience. They don't mind moving you around to different daily jobs.

    Cons

    There is a large staffing problem. Most defiantly understaffed. Front office is trained to do both but the clinical side is not trained or expected to even answer the phones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do surprise visits to the clinics. Don't tell management that you are coming and just pop up to see how daily operations really work. Trust me you will be surprised. This is not a bad company. I did enjoy my stay I was highly skilled and grossly underpaid. I don't believe the employees at the Greensboro clinic are appreciated for what the do and are taken for granted. The staff is awesome. Complaints about them usually get handled but management go no further than the building. The management and Doctors need to be checked.

    I worked at U.S. Healthworks full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to lead a department, day to day autonomy and great relationships with the referring on site physicians.

    Cons

    Bottom line is always the focus by management, to the detriment of employees. Also due to the autonomy a clinic manager can wreak havoc without much oversight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to providers more. Forcing people into working situations that will not benefit the patient or employees is not good for long term stability and growth.

    A Healthcare Organization Designed to Take Care of the People at the Top

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at U.S. Healthworks

    Pros

    Great clinical and multi-tasking experience. Many services available for those who qualify as patients. Opportunities for advancement if you kiss the right butts.

    Cons

    Republican operated company. Constructed on a "Trickle Down/Top Down" system. Operational employees are treated like cattle. The pay is embarrassing. The technology is virtually nonexistent. The employee benefits are better at McDonald's. The company focuses on fee-for-service and puts zero value on health outcomes. The annual pay increases are between $.30-$.50 which is just enough to put you into a higher tax bracket, much less provide more financial stability. The company has some logical goals with illogical and ill-planned implementation by people with little more than a high school diploma or GED. The organization's leaders forget this is a health care business. If you're 65 or older, or have Medicaid, don't come to USHW: you are too old and too poor to receive services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop getting your business tips from Fox News and start taking care of your employees and patients. Only then will you ACTUALLY fulfill your promise of being a leader in today's health care.
