Meter

about
After 3 tears of testing Alere tells me that I don't own my meter, that they just loan it to me. When I paid them 600 and some for the meter and my insurance paid over 2000.00. I have never felt like I have been ripped off like this before. Now they tell me if I buy my strips somewhere else that the meter will have to be returned. In the manual it states under warranty that I purchased the meter. Has anyone else had this issue. The people at Alere that I have dealt with for 3 years have my greatest respect , but Alere should be ashamed for the way they lie and mislead people in need of their product.

nurses laid off when they lose contracts

about
when alere loses contracts, then they try to fire nurses instead of lay them off and pay unemployment. If you are fired for unknown or ridiculous reasons, you can still collect UNEMPLOYMENT.
Unemployment will deny you always the first complaint, just need to apply for unemployment again and you will receive alere's meazly unemployment, but benes/health insurance were good.

about
This company doesn't care about their employees, they only care about quantity, how many products they have in warehouse that's why the quality of their production is bad... and the pay rate is awful, even you are permanent the rise is bad....don't waste your time and money on this company...

Layoff

about
Rumor has it that there were layoffs to case managers at Alere. The ones that manage their Chronic members.

Almost certain...

about
...the next round of layoffs is coming soon and it won't be pretty. Based on the share price and the outlook for 2013 I would guess 300+ employees will be let go.

Inovative, unorganized, need to smell the roses

about
HR/personnel, nice and polite, slow, did not get back to me when promised. Disease management department staff works well together but management do not have a clue how to manage "people" No respect for professional staff. Management often conflict on information.
Alere has potential, it is essential for management to know their roles. Please train management. Thank you

Unhealthy working conditions

about
I worked for Alere for several years as a Quit Coach in Seattle. It was not only the worst experience I've ever had with an employer, but one of the worst overall experiences of my life. Calls are recorded and picked apart. Quit Coaches are graded on their calls according to an ever-changing "Call Monitoring Tool" that is subject to the interpretation of each supervisor. Employees are constantly being put on PIP's and fired no matter how long they have been there. Of course, most of them are fired early on, so it's unusual for anyone to work there even as long as one year. I was fired after being assigned a brand new, young supervisor who graded differently than the previous one. By then, everyone I knew in the company had been fired or quit. The management is cold and uncaring. They tend to ignore urgent messages from employees who want to know where they stand. Part of the reason this job is so stressful is that the management is not upfront about what is going on. They have zero respect for employees.

Not a company you would want to work for and certainly not a company you would want involved in your healthcare, too intrusive and misleading to patients.
