    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Nova Medical Centers (Texas) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ability to work with patients one on one, while learning from an experienced Physical Therapist makes this a great job for an entry level position.

    Cons

    There is no financial incentives for productivity or annual reviews to mark progress. in order to increase base hourly rates. Also, you are expected to deep clean when you are not seeing patients (vacuum, sweep, mop, cleaning windows, dusting) since the company does not hire custodial staff.

    Pros

    Low Stress Environment Pretty Good Schedule-no weekends or holidays Good Co-Workers Decent Benefits

    Cons

    They don't give raises, even cost of living raises and there is little room for upward mobility. It's next to impossible to use all your PTO due to low coverage, this problem was very common. Even when my PTO was granted every time I had to compromise and shorten the time I took off. They wait until almost the last minute to approve your PTO, making planning things very difficult. They give you 5 days of continuing education with your benefits package, but you can't use them because they are always short staffed. I didn't get the impression the company valued its employees and viewed us as expendable.

    "Don’t waste your time!"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at Nova Medical Centers (Texas)

    Pros

    High Salary but extremely expensive benefits and very low car allowance. Don’t let the high salary full you.

    Cons

    Where to start... you start the first week listening in on calls, attending meetings and shadowing at the clinic. The workers at the clinics are lazy and avoid showing you anything... but you’re going to go out and sell what they do. Also, you are expected to enter 500 companies into the CRM in the first week... manually because the CRM is so outdated. You must have 1,000 in by your first month. Unrealistic metrics - 40 cold calls a day in 3 hours, 15 meetings scheduled a week and 5 new clients a week. Benefits are very expensive. Roughly $350 a month for a single person. $180 car allowance a month which basically pays for gas. Therefore, you’re liable for your car while you’re out driving for 5 hours a day and keep up the maintenance. You must also return back to the clinic at the end of each day which requires more gas money. CRM and email are out of date. You can’t even schedule meetings through email. Indianapolis Industrial Directors are replaced every few months. Don’t waste your time here.

    I worked at Nova Medical Centers (Texas) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company has a great service. You get an office... And $300 a month car allowance for all the driving you do. But that’s it.

    Cons

    Someone else on here said it the best, “deceiving”. Also, poor training, bad management, insanely high turn over. My training consisted of 4 days shadowing (listening in on calls and attending meetings) with another industrial director who was not responsible or trained for the job of training a new employee. You’re given 3 hours to call over 40 prospective companies to set 8 appointments for the next week. But you also have to set 10 maintenance and 8 roll out appointments for that week too. Of those 8 intro appointments you need to sign up AT LEAST 5 of the companies all totaling AT LEAST 500 employees. You get from 1-5 to drive around and attend these appointments. Expect to work nights and weekends. Your boss will text you or passive aggressively threaten you through group chats to pick up your dials, send your Monday email blast, ask why you don’t have enough meetings, tell you to go to another clinic or my favorite- WORK ON CALLING A DIFFERENT REPS COMPANIES TO GET THEM APPOINTMENTS (when you don’t have enough of your own). They tell you to go like all posts from Nova on social media (yea- during call block). If you don’t meet any of those metrics then you will be written up, or fired without a warning. You’re given everything from past reps territory (but that changes all the time) and half the prospects and even clients are no longer in business. All your companies will tell you that you’re the 4th or 5th representative they’ve had in a year. Which is true, turn over is constant. And that’s because they hire 5 reps but they fire them for things like “you companies aren’t bringing in enough injuries” and especially when you’ve been there just 3 months and are finally getting those metrics and getting a hang of your job, they’ll fire you because they can only have 1 rep per clinic and you didn’t make it. But they won’t tell you that.

    Pros

    There are not very man Pros besides good base pay

    Cons

    The list could go on and on. There is a reason they are constantly hiring more people and had the worst turn over rate. The CEO is terrible and no one truly cares about you. You have constant unachievable metrics that make the job miserable.

    I worked at Nova Medical Centers (Texas) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent base salary and possibility of making six figures.

    Cons

    Micromanaging and deceiving. 40 calls every day from 8:30-11:00 and 5-7 meetings daily. If you schedule appointments when you are supposed to be in your 8:30-11:00 call block you are reprimanded. If you do not meet these numbers you will be threatened, reprimanded and written up. Managers will text you during “call block” and threaten-demand you speed it up. Reps are directed to like Nova LinkedIn posts everyday or they are reprimanded. After reps like the LinkedIn post they are then directed to text their manager they have done so. Managers will call appointments set to make sure you are where you should be. Accounts are taken away from reps and territories are changed without notice. Email is outdated you can’t send calendar invites for meetings scheduled. Nova will only keep 1 sales rep per clinic but will not tell you this during the hiring process. They hire 5 sales reps per clinic to get the clinic up and running and then get rid of the majority of them. Turn over is incredibly high they go through 20 + reps per clinic.
