Stay Away
Claim analyst (Former Employee) –  Edmonton9 March 2018
High expectations for very low pay. I learned that management gets bonuses for making you work harder and be productive with no salary increases for years for regular employees.
Management gets perks which employees don’t. Bottom line the company is very cheap except to management. They will fly management to Phoenix for a powwow and send Sales people to Banff for a powwows but nickel and dime the hard working non management employees.
Hardest part of the job was seeing this day to day! There was always a sense of entitlement for them and no compensation for anyone else. They really don’t care about you as you are only a number to them for productivity! They don’t talk to you and they don’t interact with you and when they do talk to you it’s about themselves!
Pros
Flex day once a month
Cons
Low pay with poor overall benefits and overly high expectations

Bad impression
Team Lead - Group Enrolment - Benefits (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB30 December 2017
The people I worked with had great hearts, but it always felt like there was an elephant in the room. The upper management's idea of delegation was seriously misinformed.

Toxic People!
Claims Adjuster (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB12 August 2017
Very toxic environment and people in general. Managers are arrogant, gossip, stuck up. Their is no way to win with them, be it your a hard working person or lazy. Management and team leads create more drama then the regular employees. Good benefits and sick/vacation days. No oppruitunity to grow in any direction. Most managers love to blame others for their weakness' and enjoy gossiping more then working. They treat their employees like children with the way they talk down to them and overall approach. Lots of fake people and interactions. Lots of people rat on each other or try to get their coworkers into trouble with management. Floor managers are very distant and have a sense of superiority. Do not try to be civil or make friends as that's viewed as a weakness.
Pros
Sick/Vacation Days, Benefits
Cons
Managers, Team-Leads, Gossip, Toxic, Low-Pay

Claims Processor (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB15 May 2017
This is a company that expects a high amount of detail and output. There isn't a lot of room for advancement because the employees are quite happy in their positions and the only people leaving are the ones retiring. This employer takes pride in caring about the employees ensuring this is a healthy workplace. Its a good place to work with friendly people.
Cons
No parking available

Under paid over worked
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB1 February 2017
Benefits are cheap! Working hours are long with no coffee breaks and less than an hour for lunch. The pay is lousy. Managers are bullies. Stay away or if you work here get a job elsewhere where you are appreciated, treated well and paid what you deserve! Most every other company in the same business pay their employees much more with shorter hours, better benefits and give their employees the respect they deserve. The company thrives on what and how much an employee can do for them, but don't care for their employees what so ever.
Pros
It's a job
Cons
Long hours with low pay

Large company and complex manager's relationships
System Analyst (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB29 December 2016
Large company. All the pros and cons are from this. A lot of people, a lot of relationships, a lot of managers. You don't need to be extra-ordinary, you're not encouraged to be. Every job would have more than one persons on it, everybody has a backup. They don't want you to be unique. They want average persons.
Pros
They encourage easy and healthy life
Cons
Not a challenging job

Providing Health and Wellness services on a viable and not for profit basis
Spending Account Billing Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB29 October 2016
A typical work day consists of invoicing and reporting on Spending Accounts.
Being organized and having the ability to prioritize the workload is key. Treating the Customer with respect and dignity is number one.
Having management and co-workers that provide support and guidance where needed is essential.
The hardest part of the job is determining discrepancies between the various systems in play.
And the enjoyable part is knowing you have assisted the Client and provided them with the answers they required.....satisfying their needs....and going above and beyond.
Pros
Flexible hours, as well as decent benefits for little cost.
Cons
Not always being heard when an idea or process could be brought forward / changed.

No advancement and horrible management
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB16 August 2016
Management is horrible . They truly do not care about what is going on out on the floor and will completely ignore the fact that they have anything to do with it. A number is what you will always be . Anyone who has gone to hr pretty much ends up fired. Below industry standard for pay. Good hours and good benefits. Pay is average at best. Always behind with the times.
Pros
Co workers and clients
Cons
Management and no career advancement

Benefits Resolution Specialist (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB24 July 2016
Typically, helping people is what I do. I am able to resolve problems that cannot be resolved by other departments or other specialties within my department. Management and coworkers are supportive. The hardest part is having to tell an employee no, due to legal agreements that AHS has with third-party vendors. The most enjoyable part is fulfilling an employee's need when their request does not go against regulations.
Pros
Comfortable workplace
Cons
Location
