    I worked at Genesis HealthCare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay
    Great coworkers
    Benefits offered
    Always got hours by the end of the week
    Regional director very personable and seems to care about what is going on in locations

    Cons

    Time off has to be requested months in advance
    CEUs are mostly live and not user friendly
    Shortage of staff. Registered therapists often had a very large workload
    Contract states only 35 hours per week for full time
    Work hours unpredictable (but that’s the nature of SNF work)
    During & after a snow storm, many employees snowed in or unable to drive safely to work, Genesis sent an email stating you are required to complete your hours no matter the circumstances-came across threatening.
    Nursing & Therapy relationship very strained

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to employees to see who is working hard and who is not.
    DORs can be neglectful to patients, treating from a distance behind their desk.
    Perhaps take a survey every so often to ask about job satisfaction in order to have a better idea of how things are going, including how individuals are performing.

    I worked at Genesis HealthCare part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of hours in the beginning.

    Cons

    The people who have never worked anyplace else are very jealous of new people. They weren't required to have CT Boards to work in CT. It was very uncomfortable to work with some employees because they would train you incorrectly to see you fail.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are running their tails off and management doesn't care. They don't care because they are getting a huge bonus for keeping their numbers high.

    "COTA"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Free branded chapstick. Good CEU opportunities.

    Cons

    Forced group/concurrent therapies. No raises. Therapists are very underappreciated and at times abused. Difficult to get approved PTO. Offers 6.25 hrs (rather than 8) for a sick or vacation day off.

    Advice to Management

    It will only get harder for you to consider your therapists expendable when word spreads about the treatment of your therapists. We have lost a lot of amazing Therapists and no one is standing in line to take their place.
