    I worked at Select Medical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company had great values and tried to put the patient first. The staff I worked with were really nice and hardworking. The leadership really cared about the employees.

    Cons

    I felt like we were always understaffed. I also noticed that some of the hired CNA's did not care for the patient as they should have. Some CNA's would allow a patient to lay in their own defecation because they were just tired of cleaning up after them. That was very wrong,

    Advice to Management

    Definitely continue to monitor and survey your employees. Make sure that they are still doing their job to the best of their abilities.

    Cons

    Management is terrible, pay is very low for the amount of work you do, worried about production more than accuracy, it is a revolving door for new employees, training is very short lived then you are on your own....

    I have been working at Select Medical full-time

    Pros

    Good pay. Good atmosphere and coworkers. Nice caseload. Productivity. Good for first time job experience. Will not leave wanting to pull hair out your head. OT is very welcoming to questions and guidance.

    Cons

    No holiday pay. Bad management. No staff meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to work on how they speak to their staff. Allow therapist more input in the organization of the therapy department. I would like to meet one on one with the rehab director to speak my thoughs. I think they should offer a suggestion box.

    Pros

    Great hours, Awesome co-workers, Mediocre pay but good benefits.

    Cons

    Unreasonable expectations, Never met quotas = No $ Bonus, Limited hours, Poor work/life balance, No opportunity for advancement unless you're a nurse.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the local markets for each hospital, don't compare to others not in the area. Take better care of your employees, bonus incentives, they work hard and are committed to the Select way.

    I worked at Select Medical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I like the autonomy of the clinical liaison position and the people I worked with. I liked building relationships with referral sources. Pay was good.

    Cons

    Its all about the numbers. Nothing else matters. Very high pressure. Family comes second. Micro management. Revolving door. Benefits are expensive and not that good.

    Advice to Management

    Lift your employees up and encourage them instead of dragging them down for low census.

    Being judgemental with a persons resume. They all won t be perfect but a chance to speak with the person is important

    A resume isn't a persons interview with you give a person a chance
