Other Employee Reviews for Kindred Healthcare

  1. "Floor employees are not appreciated"

    Pros

    The people I worked with have an excellent sense of humor. You will gain experience with this company, enough to move on.

    Cons

    Not a good place to stay and make your career. Good, capable staff driven away and replaced with ones who are terrible; and those are the ones that stay. Complaints are ignored, nothing gets resolved. This company is abusive to the staff and hire people who are either bullies or meek; the ones who realizes this, leaves. Managers make things up to write-up staff. It's hard to stay at this company. CEO threatens to fire all of the staff and start over. The compensation in this company is not competitive. It's the lowest in the market as they can possibly get away with.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that your nursing/therapy/plant-ops etc, not just your sales and office staff, are an integral part of your success. Listen to them and implement ways to make them happy. Happy workers = better care. Better care = profit. Your company feels so numbers-driven and cold, you threaten and abuse the staff into providing good care instead of helping them actually want to give good care. That's morally wrong. There's nothing bad with numbers, numbers are needed to make a company successful, but you don't treat your workers like they're human. You treat them like they are replaceable, and they do leave and cost you more to train someone new. Do this enough times a year and it will affect your numbers and projected goals. Pay your staff competitively, pay them fairly, bring the salaries of those who have been loyal, nursing and administration, up to the competitive side of 2012 and factor in their experience. It's common knowledge that Kindred pays lower than everyone else and lets employee experience mean nothing. Your company viewpoint is stuck in the 70s, compensation-wise and marketing-wise. Bring in new talent who will bring the company into the new millennium and who will revitalize the Kindred brand with a fresh approach as well as have human side to treating staff and you will see your numbers get better. As your numbers get better, pay your staff, floor and administration, because without staff, there is no Kindred.


  2. "RUN fast! Worst company ever."
