Disappointing, absolutely no communication between management and no follow up on policies, only care about bottom line

Registered Nurse (Former Employee)
Greenville, SC

I worked at Select Medical full-time for less than a year

ProsIt's a job, interesting patient cases, however many circumstances not safe for patients

ConsUnderstaffed!!! Patient care suffers because of this! We have 6:1 ratio of patients to nurses, this is with many patients having high risk airways, on vents and unstable. We never have enough CNA's and patients are always complaining that they can't get anyone to come to their room when needed. They only care about the bottom line.

Management is unseen on night shift, unless of course you do something "wrong" (which half the time is only because they don't voice the policies to our shift and then get upset when we don't know about them). It would be nice to be told thanks for picking up a million shifts so this place can stay open or thanks for going that extra mile, but no it's always a negative encounter.

Our HR department knows absolutely nothing about policies when it come to human resources related stuff. I have been told many times " I don't know " by HR. I thought it was their job to know.

We have such a high turnover rate, in the last 6 months four of the five people we have hired have already quit. Many people stay long enough to get experience and then leave.

Bottom line, keep your license and be appreciated as a hard worker and work somewhere else!!

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a moment to thank your employees and get to know your employees that work third shift. Follow through on your policies and see that they are being followed by everyone and make sure you communicate those policies to EVERYONE so that we can all be on the same page!
HR- brush up on the companies policies that you work for, so that when employees come to you for information you can give it to them.
Give us more staff so that we can safely care for these patients!!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Not ideal

Physical Therapist (Current Employee)
Salt Lake City, UT

I have been working at Select Medical full-time for more than a year

Proshigher pay than most companies in my area.

ConsIf you are a therapist, your paperwork is micromanaged. They never point out things you do well, just everything you are doing wrong. There is zero employee appreciation and I have never once heard anything about quality of care. They don't care about the patients or you. You have to wait 90 days to be eligible for benefits (other places I've worked it was the first of the next month of hire) and you don't START accruing PTO until AFTER 90 days. No holiday pay. You have to maintain 90% productivity which is difficult. The second you fall below that they are all over you. If you are looking for top dollar, this company pays well. If not, I would not recommend working for Select Medical.

Too many supervisors

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Mechanicsburg, PA

I have been working at Select Medical full-time

Prosbox tickets, hershey park day, flexible schedule

ConsManager is too friendly with supervisor so when things are brought up, unprofessional acts, treating employees badly, etc it is covered over. High turnaround due to one person but nothing will be done about it.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to those who actually do the work. Don't allow departments to be over ridden by one lousy supervisor that causes mass confusion and many employees to leave.
