Certified Dialysis Technician in Corona:
"Cheap Company Always Looking To Cut Corners On Budget."
Pros: Honestly in the year plus I have been with this company I don't have much good to say.
Cons: The company cuts a lot of corners to save money on their budget. My clinic has several things wrong with it. The air-conditioning in the break room has been broken for a few weeks leaving it a sauna for what little time we have for breaks. The FA is never there. The company gives you a "victory bonus" of only a few hundred dollars when it used to be over one thousand and you get taxed sixty percent on it. They fail to give the annual raises on time and its only a slim 3% of our current hourly pay. I can go on but I don't want to get upset.
