    I have been working at Apria Healthcare full-time (More than 8 years)


    It's never boring at Apria Healthcare - there is always something new and different happening, and you can really expand your skills and knowledge. We do meaningful work here, so I feel great knowing we're improving the quality of life for our patients at home. You feel like you're part of a team, and making a difference. The people who stay here are committed to the mission.


    The health insurance deductibles are high, but otherwise the rest of the benefits available are pretty standard. Since it's a dynamic organization, if you do not like change, you will not thrive here; the work demands flexibility, priority shifting, and a positive attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in engaging your employees and training your managers to be great leaders. Apria is only as good as the services your employees deliver, and your employees' performance is impacted positively or negatively by their managers. Take care of your people and they will take care of your patients.

    Territory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in South Portland, ME
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Apria Healthcare (South Portland, ME).


    Phone interview w/ recruiter before in-person interview. I originally applied and interviewed w/ recruiter for a Hospital Account Manager position, but recruiter felt I would be better suited for Territory Manager. I had an in-person interview w/ 2 managers for TM position and accepted the offer soon after. Appreciated how honest and friendly the in-person interview was. The most difficult part was getting the recruiter’s attention before the phone screening. Quite a bit of time passed between my initial applications (I was willing to move and applied at several locations) and first contact with the recruiter; that is my only complaint.
