Good working environment, pay and opportunity to learn and grow

Physical Therapist (Former Employee)

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

ProsGreat pay-scale and bonus package. One can grow within the company. Select medical offers its own CE programs which is cheaper than outside programs. One can be autonomous running the clinic. Good team members. I had a great supervisor and I enjoyed working with the company.

ConsSometimes it is stressful to show profits all throughout the year. Less in-person meetings with the team members. But overall great company to work with for long-term basis.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should give more incentives and show appreciation to their employees in certain ways

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Customer Service Representative

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsYou can be a veteran after 3 months and pay is above minimum wage. Schedules are flexible.

ConsEverything is micromanaged, training is awful, pay is low, there is a constant flow of new people. Management makes you feel that you are not important. Zero career development.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring people who cares about our patients and quit.

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

Run, Forest, Run!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Select Medical full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI have a great boss and awesome co-workers, but everyone above my boss is completely out of touch with reality!

ConsManagement from regional managers and up are completely out of touch with reality. They have unrealistic expectations, they manage by bullying and tearing their subordinates down, and they are the most unprofessional group of people I have ever seen.

Advice to Senior ManagementFire everyone in middle management up to the C suite and start over. Start paying your low level "in the trenches" employees what they're worth instead of hoarding those insane profits for yourselves and open your eyes to what your employees are really saying.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Awful Place to Work, Micro-managed, too much overhead, overall two-faced

Rehabilitation Technician (Former Employee)
