I have been working at Ensign Group full-time (Less than a year)
I have really enjoyed my time w/ Ensign as an Occupational Therapist. I think that my colleagues in the rehab department would agree that it's a good place to work.
Pros: fair pay; reasonable productivity expectations; very friendly staff. I have worked at several of my company's locations and have found staff and management to be very pleasant and friendly people. And patients largely seem to agree, from what I've observed.
I don't know that all divisions of my place of employment have it as good as rehab. I have nothing negative to say about my experience in the rehab department. And I don't perceive any disgruntlement among my colleagues. Our DoR doesn't even seem to mind the high level of demand his work entails (which seems to be a staple of the position, and is not specific to Ensign by any means), though I think he's a bit of a special beast. I wouldn't want his job. But he seems to thrive on it in a way that I don't think most would. However, again, I don't think that, for example CNAs, are as fortunate as us lucky rehab people. This, though, is surely not unique to Ensign by any stretch.
Another con is that sometimes rehab hours are lower than I'd like them to be. But again, this is an industry thing. Not an Ensign thing. So it's not really a criticism of Ensign any more than complaining about the rain at a golf course would be a criticism of the facility management.
I applied online. I interviewed at Ensign Group.
I was interviewed by the DoR and Occupational Therapist at the facility. They were very friendly and welcoming. They asked good questions. And they gave a good, accurate impression of the working environment.
