    Pros

    My specific manager was an angel (and is the reason for the third star). You learn a vast amount about anything and everything medical.

    Cons

    Overworked and under appreciated. It's all about the dollar even thought they'd like to think it's about the quality.

    Advice to Management

    To upper management: spend a day (or more) in the busier clinics' shoes. And if you have and have worked your way up, don't forget what it was like at the bottom.

    I worked at American Family Care full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only thing I can list is that this is a good job for beginner to gain experience fast.

    Cons

    To many to list I will just agree with the hundreds of others who posted about this company. Just saying.......you can't make up all the horror stories posted about them. The turnover rate of employees is like nothing I have ever seen before but is understandable. But hey don't take my word for it....apply and see first hand.

    I have been working at American Family Care full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Having Experience in the medical field. That's it.

    Cons

    Racist to the extreme. If your new watch out for spies they will have people buddy up with you to get in your business. Also they will (when new) put extra things on your plate like try an get you to do there work. An say it's something you have 2 do. Management is poop. I mean down right terrible! They don't want to pay you a dime. Maybe my boss is just a dummy. Also don't you dare injure yourself at work. They will try there very best I mean very best to try and cover it up. This place is Hell on earth. Trust me. Unless your going to be a doctor stay far far away!!

    Advice to Management

    You know things are terrible here.
