    I have been working at Chiro One Wellness Centers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    the level of training you receive in such a short amount of time would take years in most other chiropractic settings, potential to earn is not limited, has own insurance/billing department, has own marketing department, has a human resources department, lets you be the physician and not worry about many of the other aspects to run a successful practice, support system, pay for your continuing education, great hours, the benefits are endless.

    Cons

    if you haven't practice prior to coming to Chiro One it is easy to look over all the benefits the company offers its employees.

    Advice to Management

    appreciative of all you do- keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Don't have to work Saturday's

    Cons

    Poor communication from upper management Cookie cutter treatment of patients All patients do the same Physical Therapy routine Average per visit cost $350 Doctors are unable to completely adress patients issues in each session Continual pressure to weedle referals out of patients Training for position as a Doctor is a brainwashing and indoctrination period where trainers will treat you like a 5 year ild child. If you perform well they give you a treat, if not WATCH out!! Poorly utilized and executed LANDMARK techniques to ensure full compliance by brainwashed employees All doctors must learn and master scripts at 90% in 6-8 weeks Scripted replies for MOST scenarios insurance verification process puts patients policy at risk of cancellation

    Advice to Management

    Get REAL trainers with experience for your doctor program. A trainer that is NOT educated nor has experience in Adult Education has no business trying yo teach Adults. Update your selling point from a scare tactic to addressing the real health issue

    I worked at Chiro One Wellness Centers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay and great hours for doctors. Company is focused on personal growth and success. Excellent benefits. The marketing team that markets for you is a HUGE plus.

    Cons

    Like many jobs, things sound much better before you are hired vs after. They are very big on not telling you when you are done with training or when you are moving on to a clinic. It could be 6 days, 6 weeks, 6 months??? They wont even give you a ballpark. It can be a real mind F.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency and less fluff with making things sound good but not delivering - as in your potential pay, potential training start and end time, etc.

    I worked at Chiro One Wellness Centers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    3 day weekend (except for monthly Friday training); free chiropractic care

    Cons

    You are at the mercy of the doctor running the clinic. I worked with a great doctor / person, and I worked with a jerk doctor / person. Upper management puts on a good show, but you could tell things were falling apart at the seams - a little here, a little there, more and more...

    Advice to Management

    Hold the doctors more accountable for clinic environment and employee satisfaction. Focus less on putting on a good show (monthly training), and more on quality of content (perhaps less often). Pay me for the overtime I worked.

    I worked at Chiro One Wellness Centers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learned a lot about the health care business. Was able to get mentor-ship from higher ups.

    Cons

    Benefits are the lowest possible. Salary increase are minimal at best, if you qualify for their point system. Execs are too full of themselves to actually see what really needs to be done. Probably why "Medulla" had to come in and "rescue" them.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the back office people. They're smarter than what you give them credit for. Sometimes they stay silent because they know you're not listening.

    Pros

    Free chiropractic care. Four day work week.

    Cons

    The lowest health insurance. Low pay. Long days (12+ hours). Questionable billing practices. Overcharging/lying to patients. Executives who are overpaid. Brainwashing. NO advancement opportunities. Wage freezes. Ridiculous quotas that need to be met.

    Pros

    Free chiropractic care, 4 day work week

    Cons

    ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING ELSE!!! Not even kidding. Seriously. Horrible business management, financial ruin, layoffs, clinic closures in all 3 states, ridiculously overpriced services, fraudulent billing practices, unaffordable employee health insurance, executives with a HUGE God-complex, chiropractic hero worship that borders on the obscene, NO advancement opportunities, wage freezes, unattainable quotas for staff, retaining rude and disrespectful doctors despite staff and patient complaints..... Just don't do it. No. Just... No.

    Advice to Management

    Every one of you need to be fired. Ran this company into the ground in less than 18 months.

    Good for improving own health, helping others, learning a lot about chiropractic. Not so good for career growth.

    Pros

    Each person on a clinic team has the opportunity to personally have big impact on patients' lives and health every day. Free chiropractic care for self and family was biggest benefit.

    Cons

    Management structure and mid-level manager training not strong. Opportunities for growth are limited so there is an unfortunate level of turnover of good employees.

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience after graduating from college. Results-driven environment with motivated team members supporting your goals and celebrating accomplishments. Unlimited chiropractic care for free and chiropractors are amazing!

    Cons

    Very long hours. Would work 12 hours a day some weeks and drive up to two hours each day. Barely reimbursed for fuel costs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the company while supporting your marketing & sales team. Their role is just as important as any other position. More perks and work/life balance please

    You do not learn how to actually help people. It's all about learning scripts!

    I worked at Chiro One Wellness Centers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was not bad and it was nice to have three day weekends. Great place if you do not mind lying to people and taking their hard earned money

    Cons

    Long hours; during their month long training all you learn is how to read scripts; you do not actually learn anything about chiropractic care or any of the real benefits until the last few days; insurance is terrible; they claim you get free chiropractic care but if your doctor is a jerk (like mine was) they will never adjust you; the doctors will also treat you terribly; once a month you have to drive all the way to corporate for monthly meetings which can take forever if you do not live close to oak brook; the monthly meetings feel more like brain washing seminars where they say a lot of words but nothing meaningful; every Monday you will lose an hour of your lunch break because you have to come back to listen to a conference call from one of the CEOs and again it's a lot of bang, pop marketing words but in the end they have not actually said anything truly meaningful; the testing equipment you have to perform on the clients are not accurate and they know this, but they still make you perform the tests so that they can charge the patients; they also bilk hundreds out of clients for the doctor's so called personalized exercises when in reality the doctors just came up standard exercises that they filter the clients through. Even if you are desperate please do not apply there. There is a reason their employees filed a class action lawsuit for unreasonable pay and hours which we won but Chiro One quickly filed bankruptcy in order to get out of paying.

    Advice to Management

    Get real! Your chain of popup clinics do not properly treat people.
