    Pros

    Patient care and awesome pt moving systems. Great resources for SSM St Joes facility.

    Cons

    Leadership just plain lies to their employees and regards them as dispensable. They don't act to get rid of bad employees and they don't do a THING to retain good employees. Who suffers? The patients do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back in touch with your work force. They go to the wall for you day in and day out in very, very tough conditions and risk a lot to work thin that high acuity environment. Show them respect and support them.

    Pros

    Select is a very well-run company with a strong commitment to quality and operational performance. They have excellent HR leadership at the corporate level and provide extensive training for leadership in talent selection and development.

    Cons

    The corporate oversight can sometimes be a bit overwhelming and does not allow for enough autonomy at the facility level. Senior leadership needs to better utilize the expertise of the local leadership and their knowledge of the local market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider allowing more decision making at the local level and hold leaders accountable for the results.

    Scottsdale Rehab - Overworked, Understaffed

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

    Pros

    At Scottsdale Healthcare Rehab Hospital, the DON is for the most part a good advocate for the nursing staff. Administration is trying to adopt a more approachable method of leadership, so it's not uncommon to see the hospital CEO out on the floor (Scott Keen is a pretty cool guy). The staff-patient ration is intended to be very reasonable, 1:5 for nurses and 1:6 for CNAs.

    Cons

    Staff-patient ratios have been a joke. Day shift can expect to see 1:7 for nurses and 1:9 for CNAs. This wouldn't be so bad if we could go in and complete care per our time management (as you would in any other acute care), but administration and therapy complain that "the patients are in a rehab facility and need to do as much as they can for themselves." Ain't nobody got time fo' that, especially when half of those patients are max assist or total care and the rest are demented; the hospital routinely brings in patients that are clearly unrehabable. Many nursing staff have injured themselves just so we can have a full house.

    A note for CNAs: our raises are not performance-based and only happen once a year. That person who takes too long of breaks and doesn't answer call lights? Yeah, you get the same $0.10 raise a year they do. That's not an exaggeration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to better anticipate staffing needs. If one or two people leave, we need to replace them well before our busiest season begins.

    I worked at Select Medical full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Good "launching pad" job
    -High turnover results in more opportunities at higher levels
    -Business-wide, the company is expanding

    Cons

    -Environment at the help desk is AWFUL. Being off the phones for any given amount of time is frowned upon.
    -Zero appreciation from management for the hard work put in.
    -High stress environment, no rest in the 8 hours that you're there.
    -Even after promotion, pay is not worth the stress and workload.
    -Constantly short-staffed, everyone has to pick up slack for lack of help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to care about your employees. Yes, everyone can be replaced, but don't treat them with that fact at the forefront of your minds.

    Pros

    Benefits, PTO accrual, pay is ok and yearly increases.

    Cons

    Coming in the job is not what I expected. A lot of time on your hands, which some would prefer. Explanation of things aren't clear. Learn as you go atmosphere.
