    I worked at Select Medical

    Pros

    Very large company with lots of locations, meaning they will always have an opening within reasonable traveling distance from you

    Cons

    Are very money oriented, expect much and can get you
    burned out quickly. So one really has to focus on what's important

    Former Employee - Registered Nurse in York, PA

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

    Pros

    The staff do care about the patients. The management dies not care about anything except bringing in patients, making profit, keeping the patients as long as they can make a profit and holing the employees accountable for any wrong doing whatsoever never ever ever making the upper management accountable. The CEO and HR are best buddies and do not promote any unity of their company I CARE model they destroy every relationship and ten work efforts to have a leadership team that can lead the facility. They seem to be on a downward slide in the community with recently losing almost all of thier leadership team and rehiring under level staff to replace them just to have the positions filled. Unprofessional conduct is continous with the management team presently and HR sits and watches. Someone should really have a good lawsuit with this behavior, there should never be tolerance for testing your employees by bribing ing them into a office with several other managers and screaming at them until they are sobbing with the HR involved. Mean mean people and illegal...Horrific at that. They have an unheard of turn over with nurses. IF you want to be paid well, treated with respect and love your job taking care of patients. Please run away from this company. You will be are a happier person to work for 8 dollars at Starbucks then to work at this York select( it is that bad). I wouldn't think York hospital will continue to renew their lease. It's a disgrace and they should book them out the first chance they get.

    Cons

    See above I put it all together

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize your 100 meetings a week are not helping. Your the reason rhe facility is so terrible because you only care about keeping your own jobs. The management team are fake people and should all be fired. The current CEO was fired from York Hospital and this company hired him that should say a lot by itself. The value system is meaningless when your CEO is just clinging to a rope and praying he gets a promotion to Harrisburg so he can dump York.

    Generally a good company, but some focus on profit rather than improvement.

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

    Pros

    The employees do an incredible job with very difficult patients. These are patients who have extensive wounds, difficulty getting off of vents and other major defecits. There is generally great teamwork and a wonderful focus on the patients and families and their needs.

    Cons

    The computer systems are cumbersom for medication delivery, pharmacy and other systems. There are over 100 small unit Select facilities - so there is a need to have standardization. This means that change and improvements in an individual unit are hampered by the need to keep everything the same across the large company.

    I have been working at Select Medical

    Pros

    The group of people I work with, the ability to choose the days you want to work. Sad I cannot honestly come up with anything else positive at this facility.

    Cons

    Nurse to patient ratio without concern re: Acuity, Never being heard by CEO/DON, stress for all employees who work at Select. Nurses pushed to the limit ,revolving door of new hires, always short of staff,but can always take more admits regardless of staffing. Anything goes wrong....always the nurse. HR at facility worthless to staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a leader such as a DON/CEO fail to listen to their employees, you will never have a team. You must understand STAFF who are constantly stressed,do NOT perform well. A team is only as good as the leaders who lead them...sadly, you have failed us. Money...Is the priority......not patient care. I CARE attitude should start with your staff...you have misinterpreted I CARE philosophy and use it against your staff. Just about every staff member is trying to find another job.

    Pros

    Diverse coworkers. It use to be the pay, but now it's the same as other surrounding hospitals.

    Cons

    Constantly understaffed. You have to use your PTO time on a regular basis to receive a full check. Management does not help out when their staff need help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Up the pay. Work your employees. Help us out when we are drowning.
