    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Very thorough care to patients. Pay attention to details and follow Medicare guidelines very carefully. Focused on providing the beat care to patients in their home.

    Cons

    Communication can be slow between staff at times, but management tries to get information out as consistently as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on improving communication channels between staff and disciplines.

    Pros

    Compatible Pay and benefit. Multiple locations to choose from and can work at all locations if desired, get paid overtime after 40 hours no matter what facility you worked at. Caring staff, most are awesome team player.

    Cons

    Census drops multiple times a year at different locations so it’s best to cross train at all facilities so you can get your weekly hours and overtime if desired.

    I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great experience in the Tacoma WA branch. Very much team oriented and the managers care and listen. It felt like family. Only left because I relocated but I could have worked here long term. Pay was great with potential for lots of overtime pay if you wanted it. The office staff respected family obligations and the need for time off. I loved it. The therapist and nurses I worked with were exceptional and we all looked out for one another. The patient always came first.

    Cons

    Lots of charting but that’s due to Medicare laws and requirements. Once you get the hang of Oasis, it goes faster.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!! Thank you for taking such good care of your staff. It’s great to feel appreciated.

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Friendly people that truly care about employee on a personal level, over the past two years we have seen many natural disasters in the United States. This past year during a national meeting our team dedicated an afternoon at the Houston Food Bank to help provide over 29,000 meals to victims of the hurricanes.

    Kindred employees have continued to step up and help there fellows employees locally with damages to homes as well as funding accounts that are set up nationwide.

    It is great to work for a company that can take the time out to think about those that work so hard everyday.

    It has been great to work with Kindred and I plan to retire from here.

    Cons

    There is nothing that I would say is a "Con" in working for Kindred.
    I love Kindred and all that they stand for in the communities that they serve!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do.
