I have been working at Select Medical full-time (More than 3 years)
Great learning environment. Management and co-workers are willing to train and teach you what to do. Most of the staff is amazing and wonderful to work with. New facility and lots of education available. All benefits available.
Challenging patient load and lots of hard work. You will sweat and run around on bad days. There are good days too though. High turnover. Negativity from some co-workers and indifference from management. Local management can only do so much their hands are tied by corporate. No incentive or modivational aspects to drive employees beyond 6 months of employment. Raises are a joke at 2% and do not reflect work done. If you make one mistake or have an attendance call in you don't get a raise at all but you get a list of goals to complete that are unreasonable. Doesn't matter if you completed your previous years goals or not. Health benefits are expensive. No incentive to be exceptional.
Advice to Management
Advice to corporate is to step back and let local management run the hospital. Let the managers give the tenured valuable employees higher raises or bonuses for completed goals or incentives for helping outside their job duties. Get the cost of health insurance down. As a hospital worker you should not have to pay this much of your premium. This is a billion dollar profiting company. Here is the profit going? None back to the staff that run the place obviously which is why turnover is so high. When management is even leaving for higher paying jobs you know everyone is underpaid for work expectations. Why are there hardly any opportunities for advancement or promotion.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Select Medical.
Met with three people for this position. Started with the recruiter; then the position manager, then the VP of IT. Very smooth interview; very professional individuals. Overall the interview lasted about three hours for a entry-level hourly position.
