It figures CMS would protest the award. They are so . . .scummy.

It's hard to believe it will get better with Wexford considering they underbid CMS. Don't know the pay scale or shift diffs, but the PTO is SUBSTANTIALLY reduced and no matching of 401k with Wexford. We'll see how it works out.

I know right? Plus the lady that spoke to our group really turned me off. She was kinda condescending and loud. She didn't really give us any promising info about the company. "Just be on time!... Don't call me crying about your money. I care about my money! You are all adults!..." Maybe that's just her personality. I just didn't get the feel of "Welcome to our company!" I am waiting for the "offer letter" to see if this is worth it.

By the way, I just heard about the situation that CMS underbid Wexford. That's why they are protesting. I think the State was fed up with CMS.

I wasn't able to attend the meeting, so I missed what happened. I'm surprised she said those things. We were told they forgot to mail the offer letters and then mailed them Tues. or Wed., but nobody has seen it yet............ It will be interesting.

Allegedly the "offer letters" are coming to the sites and not to your home. Those letters also have the info to enroll in their health insurance (which they have yet to let you know how much it is gonna be). The woman also kinda explained their 401K participation. If you do not say "yes or no", you will be automatically enrolled to have 4% taken out of your pay and invested in the funds they see fit. No Matching Fund. She warned the crowd not to call her because she cannot get your money back from the government once the deduction had been taken. Alas, we will see...

We have Wexford, it's ok, but PTO time isn't good. We have to use PTO as sick time as well as vacation time, also if you're late, even by one minute, you get 15 minutes of PTO time taken away, it just isn't fair. We are in need of new equipment, (thermometers, pulse ox, b/p cuffs, etc.,) it seems like we have to do without quality equipment because the company is cheap. Just my humble opinion...:crying2:

Well, Wexford lost the bid and we still have CMS. I think the thing with using PTO to make up time if you are late is universal in corrections. It's the same here with CMS. It has something to do with the contract with the state.

:eek:I also think the PTO time with Wexford leaves a lot to desire. Having to use it as sick time, if you are a few minutes late you are charged 15 minutes of your PTO time, with this system, you can hardly ever build enough time for a vacation.

Wexford was scheduled to take over an account in Maryland. Anyone have news to this event?
