What is it like working as a Physical Therapist Assistant at HCR ManorCare?
Physical Therapist Assistant in Bethlehem:
Pros: I like being the direct contributing factor in helping my patients improve their functional skills. I also like being able to decide when a patient is fully prepared to return home.
Cons: The physical, occupational, and speech therapy department is looked down upon from other departments. We are not valued for the amount of work that is expected of us. Our department gets blamed for the mistakes of other departments. The medical benefits are terrible.
Physical Therapist Assistant in Detroit:
"No Appreciation, Work Harder, More Productivity, Stress."
Pros: The hours and not working the weekends.
Cons: If the company gave fair pay raises that they aren't embarrassed to give they would be proud to tell everyone what they were, ie: employees received pay increases of 1-1.3%. Instead they are hush, hush. "Don't talk about your salary, it's against company policy." Of course it is. You don't want us to know that the person sitting next to us doing the same work is getting more money.
