They treat u like crap, expect u to give them 110 percent when u r not paid enough to deal with all the drama, belittled, no benefits, no breaks, walt is a dick, it's all a set up to get bills sent to CBS for collections, talk to patients like dogs, trained to treat patients horribly, give u some bs title when all u r is a debt collector, trash works there, if u blow walt u will get a quarter raise.
I've been on both sides..... Patient, they had my bill all jacked up and never returned my calls to clear it up, but CBS blew my phone up and harassed me when it was a mistake by the doctors office billing n the first place. On the other end, my wife worked there for a year. I could not drop lunch off to her, she was not getting breaks, they talked down to her, threatened her when my daughter was put n the hospital-she could not leave and she was n the ER. She had never missed a day. Walt made many passes at my wife, would ask her personal questions and always called her into his office for no reason but to be a pervert. Finally she finished her degree and works n a wonderful environment and well compensated. That was prolly the worst place she has ever worked. I have never heard of a success story coming from mars nor CBS. Do what u gotta do to pay the bills, but don't have any great expectations if u do go to work there. Be prepared for one of the worst experiences n ur life. Run while u can!!!!!!
Very interesting

WOW!! Exactly what I was trying to find out! I hate to hear that you and your wife had to go through these two incidents dealing with MARS. However, it sounds like your wife has since moved on to much better things. That's wonderful! My husband and I have decided that since all we've heard are horrible things about this place, I'm just going to stay home this last year of school for me and concentrate on that, watch our spending, and do what we've got to do! Thank you so much for all of your input!! It's been very helpful!

The youngest Edwards, Will, is a decent guy. But his department only has a handful of people and one of them is a backstabbing ......

The rest are all horrible.

I need some information on this place. Anybody who has worked there before fill me in please.
I worked there for just under a year, and it was the worse job I have ever had. My duties were to call the insurance companies to see why they had not paid. When I found out the bills didn't go out correctly, I preceded to bill correctly and was quickly how it was not my place to bill. I found over $75,000.00 not filed correct and told the physician's office about the errors I was called into Walt Edwards's office to be fired, only it was worded as "I hear you aren't happy here". When I said, no sir, I was let go and never received unmployement for "job dissatisfaction." Walt's brother is a prominent attorney, "Mark Edwards", is for the company, and won't hear about the truth. You, as an employee aren't allowed any personal items on or near your desk or cubicle. Your call ledger is the only thing allowed along with your pen and your headphones. Walt is an idiot.

I work there and it is not a bad place at all. They work well with their employees and if you need to leave for any reason children, doctor, etc you don't get the 3rd degree over it. They would prefer for you to make up the hours you miss when you have to leave but understand that it's not always possible within hours of operation. I have family pictures all in my computer as well as my desk top. I really like it there Walt has always been very kind and speaks to you and knows his employees first names.
I really don't understand what all these lies are about. I've never had to ask to use the restroom that obsurd. As long as you do your work and you prove you are a good efficient employee they treat you well. After one year you get 2 weeks paid vacation. This day & economy you find that somewhere else youre lucky. This company does not deserve all the bad rep they are getting. Everyone is allowed their own opinion but MARs is not an awful company.
Uh huh

You feel like ur working with a bunch of elementary kids always running and telling. Some supervisors are ok. Others like to talk about their employees and run their own help in the ground. Its really sad. Supervisors can clock themselves in and out so of course they take extra long cigeratte breaks and lunch when they are suppose to have the same as everyone else. There are a couple of supervisors who are just lazy. The job itself isnt bad and the hours are good but just listening to the whining and gossiping all the time gets really old. You have no friends there. Everybody there wants to be the supervisors best friend and run and tell her everything. Even when ur doing ur job they find a 100 ways to pick it apart and make it wrong. Hope this helps to whom ever is looking at working at mars.

If they offer u a job...don't. Tell them you want more money and health insurance and watch them squirm.
