good times, bad times, no better or worse than any other rehab company

PTA (Former Employee)
Chester, PA (US)

I worked at Genesis HealthCare full-time for more than 3 years

Prosgreat place to learn your discipline, great variety of patient diagnosis.
rehab staff is great to work with,

Consproductivity expectations are unrealistic when you consider the geriatric population is mostly sick and tired, rarely does the day go smoothly to see all patients in such a way that ensures 90% productivity.

Advice to Senior Managementspend a day in a rehab gym and experience what challenges are present that get in the way of high productivity and treating patients for unreasonably high minutes.

OK for a big company

Occupational Therapist (Former Employee)
Siler City, NC (US)

I worked at Genesis HealthCare full-time for more than a year

ProsGood pay, security, supportive rehab team. Family-like atmosphere in this small facility. "Salt of the earth" patients were rewarding to work with.

ConsProductivity expectations in addition to incidental duties sometimes compromised patient care. This particular facility did not have adequate storage for wheelchairs and other equipment; rooms were small; and percentage of Medicaid patients high. Not true in all Genesis facilities.

Advice to Senior ManagementRealistic expectations for productivity plus additional duties. Higher across the board standards for facilities.

I have had an excellent experience with Genesis Healthcare in the 9 years of service with them.

Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee)
Salisbury, MD (US)

I have been working at Genesis HealthCare full-time for more than 8 years

ProsAdministration is always available and attentive. They really listen to their staff. If they are unable to answer your questions they will get back to you in a timely manner with the answer. They seem to really care about their staff.

ConsI don't agree with some of the policies regarding attendance. They lump lateness of one minute for example with absences for sick children or employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at each person's lateness or attendance as an individual and decide on corrective action individually. Every situation is not the same.

nice to work for

OTR (Current Employee)
Reseda, CA (US)

I have been working at Genesis HealthCare as a contractor

ProsThey seek to hire quality people.

ConsIt is quite difficult to get h.r. people to call you back. The process for connecting with other departments such as searching within the company for positions is not easy, people do not call you back.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease be more responsive with getting back to people when they call
