    Current Employee - Therapy in Columbus, OH

    I have been working at Select Medical full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    pay was good. hospital was small. administration was respectful at the hospital level. had good worker safety programs in place. Training was adequate.

    Cons

    short staffing was common. no upward mobility. very little lateral mobility. Night staff was uncontrollable. Lots and lots of turnover in the nursing end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    examine your turnover rate. there may be something behind it.

    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Columbus, OH

    I have been working at Select Medical full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good nurses, decent care, good pay, flexible hours

    Cons

    Terrible management. I was hired, then my nursing supervisor left immediately. I was "left adrift on memory bliss."
    Mediocre to terrible training. It's "sink or swim" training. I was on my own after a week and a half. Good luck with that.
    Unrealistic expectations for new grads...or nurses in general.
    "Nurses Eat Their Young." Nuff 'said.
    No training...oh, that's right...I said that already
    Backbitting, no team player. Ask another nurse for help and you'll probably get the vaunted "eye roll."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Blow up and start over. Realistically.
    1. Solid polices
    2. Checklists for new hires...everything from computers to passwords to contacting doctors to training skills
    3. A defined six week training.

    Pros

    Great to watch how people recover! Great pay, Excellent Therapy Team.

    Cons

    Need to work on team playing! Respecting all employee as one not cause of there titles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respecting all employee as one not cause of there titles. If the work is hard are harder make sure the pay matches.
    "Just don't tell the employee you appreciate them show them as well". Always listen to the person who is doing the work hands on, they can give you more info then anyone.

    Former Employee - Pharmacist in Columbus, OH

    I worked at Select Medical full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work itself is interesting. The patients are complex, the Physicians are engaging, and the type of material that needs to be presented is fun.

    Cons

    The managment are all friends and if you're not in their inner circle, they will try to throw you out. No matter how hard you work, it doesn't matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't ignore the things going on around you just because it's easier than confronting the issue. IF you notice an employee is working very hard, acknowledge that and give some encouragement instead of always beating down everyone.
