I have been working at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time

Pros

hourly pay, insurance,401k match, work with a great team

Cons

Demand staff to go home when patient load decreases then force use of vacation time to cover shorted hours. Currently they are removing more PTO from my bank than I earn. Once PTO is depleted there is no opportunity to accumulate any. Time off is then granted without pay at manager's discretion.

Very heavy daily workload. I'm not afraid to work but resentful of not having any PTO when I need a break!

Feels like prison so much that we call any time off "parole".

Must adjust your schedule frequently and with little notice to accommodate commercial payers.

Extremely difficult to get questions answered from HR. Policies that can be found are usually very vague and can be interpreted different ways.

Advice to Management

1st of all, I feel sorry for the CM. Seems new CMs are thrown to the wolves.

Just read the company values poster. Treat your employees with respect, dignity, integrity and fairness and you'll have a good team. We don't see that enough.

    I have been working at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In my case, flexibility in hours, semi-decent benefits and lots of leave time.

    Cons

    Very bad pay, but a job was better than no job.

    Advice to Management

    Your clerical people do way more than the job description ever details and, for the rate of pay, other duties as assigned is almost the job description for another human being. I understand now why the turnover rate for this position is so high. We are not paid anywhere near what we're worth.
