    I worked at Interface Rehab full-time

    Pros

    Staff at RCBH is wonderful and the director there is amazing.

    Cons

    Very low pay, no opportunity for growth. Very minimal yearly raises if any at all. The upper management would prefer to hire a new grad as opposed to retain talent with realistic raises.

    "Handled transition poorly"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Freelancer - Occupational Therapist in Oakland, CA

    I have been working at Interface Rehab for less than a year

    Pros

    I was employed as a contract worker through another company but that company ceased in our building and Interface came in and took over. They offered me a PRN position at the rate I requested, higher than expected, because they were desperate.

    Cons

    They low-balled everyone interested in full-time work including experienced workers in the same facility familiar with the other staff in the building and the patient population and refused to meet their current rate with the previous company. The company prefers to higher new, inexperienced grads for less money. They provided limited support on-site with the transition and things were extremely chaotic.

    I worked at Interface Rehab for less than a year

    Pros

    They have lots of contracts, Always looking for therapists,

    Cons

    Pay is way below average than other companies, Regional Mentors are out of touch with facility staff, Never returns phones calls, You will never see your home facility as they like to move their staff around, This company is write up happy and disciplines staff for stupid things, Forced use of PTO if hours drop in facility and you refuse to travel, If you report illegal activity in facilities, they will fire you,... Turnover has increased tremendously over the years, too many new grads that are willing to commit fraud, treatment supplies are nonexistent.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the power trip and writing people up for stupid things, you will retain good therapists which will decease your hiring costs. Get rid of all the unethical therapists and DORs that commit major Medicare Fraud, and stop firing those that report it. Head Coach, you need to be more involved in what's going on in your facilities, loosing 10 to 15 great therapists a day is not good for company culture or your... companies future.

    I worked at Interface Rehab for less than a year

    Pros

    None that I know of

    Cons

    Offered me one location, and ended up sending me to an undesired location far from home. I didn't get to tour there before accepting it. I had to quit instead of being re-assigned closer to home. Pay was substandard compared to other companies. Poor OT supplies. You almost had to bring your own.

  8. "So-so."

    Current Employee - Occupational Therapist in San Diego, CA

    I have been working at Interface Rehab full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You have the flexibility to work between facilities, see a variety of diagnoses within the different facilities, and the hiring process is relatively quick.

    Cons

    The facilities vary a lot- some aren't the nicest. The company itself is stingy. There's tension within the higher ups / corporate drama.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees more like family and less like an expendable resource.

    I worked at Interface Rehab full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ridiculously easy interview and hiring process. Lots of contracts and open positions available. If you're a terrible employee you won't have to worry about getting fired.

    Cons

    Unethical practices - impossibly high productivity levels, coercing employees to work off the clock, too many aides/assistants and not enough licensed therapists. Licensed therapists are bogged down by paperwork and don't have time to actually to complete assessments and create appropriate treatment plans. There is no time for therapists to communicate or even take bathroom breaks. Patient care and satisfaction is... not a priority. Profits and minimum costs are the priority. Below subpar, incompetent, unethical employees drag good, ethical, hardworking employees down. Ineffective management and HR. Zero mentorship. Employee concerns are ignored, minimized, or laughed at. Therapists are shifted from one placement to another on a whim. Therapists feel defeated because they are not valued or protected. Administrator, DON, contract company always take priority even when they are unethical or biased.

    Advice to Management

    Value your good employees, listen to their cries for help and stop hiring/keeping bad employees just because they are cheap and willing to compromise ethical, responsible therapy and patient care to earn your company a few more dollars. You've already lost your reputation. Eventually you will lose your good therapists, lose your contracts and lose your company. Get ready for Medicare audits.

    I have been working at Interface Rehab full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, pay, some nice people working corporate office. usually co-workers at SNFs are team oriented and helpful

    Cons

    as OTR or RPT, you have to do all the rehab paperwork. COTAs and PTAs only do daily notes, so you're doing a whole lot of weekly reports in addition to evals etc. So you don't get a set caseload, you're just a paper/report pumping machine. You have to write reports for all the patients that other assistants treat, hard to keep up. Productivity issues (90-95%) are issues at any SNF, but they really give heavy... caseloads for daily treats.

    Show More

    Advice to Management

    Let all therapists have a set caseload and maintain their own paperwork so that they really know the true gains and progress each individual patient is making
