Occupational Health Nurse (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – February 24, 2017
Concentra does not give any holiday pay to any hourly employee. Plus you must work there 3 months before you begin to accrue any time off. Also, you must work at least 32 hours each week in a pay period in order to accrue any leave. It is not prorated, all or nothing. I am sure management is an office to office concern. I worked at an off site clinic where the higher ups had no clue what went on on a daily basis. Learned a lot about Occupational nursing.
I enjoyed working at Concentra the time I was employed by them.
Assist physicians in procedures (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – February 23, 2017
Great opportunity to see different things and learn daily. Learned a lot when I worked there. Doctor and staff were great help and very friendly. I worked well under fast paced busy times and made new friends. Love the patient/provider atmosphere.
I was a lab tech and also a float for the medical side
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Sparks, NV – February 22, 2017
My day would include drug and alcohol abuse testing, drug test (urine,hair and blood) I would also perform DOT physical exams along with sports physicals and things like that. I also have worked in the front office at each one of my jobs because I was a float and in order to float you need to know the whole office so you can help everyone.
Cash Posting Specialist II (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – February 16, 2017
A typical day at work included payment posting batches, both hard copy and EFT. Preparing refunds on overpayments and training new colleagues. I learned a lot about billing for an urgent care environment. Management was very knowledgeable and willing to help with anything needed. Workplace culture was great. The hardest part of the job was not getting EFT's to balance. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to listen to music while posting payments.
Medical benefits are terrible. Techs/specialists unable to move to better positions; not worth it for long term. Non-degree'd staff pay is barely $11-$15 (when state's minimum is $10). Pressure from upper management to chase numbers and patients in non-pragmatic elements that can objectively be related to parent company's success. (At this time, owned by Select Medical.)
Occasional free lunch
Short breaks, PTO constantly being used on holidays
Reimbursement System Specialist (Current Employee) – Addison, TX – February 8, 2017

Worker's Compensation Case Manager (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – February 6, 2017

Billing Specialist (Former Employee) – Bingham Farms, MI – January 31, 2017
This would be a great place to work if they did a whole new hire for the CBO, there is a lot of favoritism if the sups don't care for you then there is no advancement, recently the cbo has had a high turnover due to unprofessional coworkers, this is the only place I know that allow harassment from their employees and ok with drama. The sups expect u to do their job and yours while they run their mouths in the offices.
Profit share, pto
Favoritism, no consequence for unprofessional behavior, billing sup lazy and unorganized
Concentra recently purchased by Select Medical offers no Job Work / Life Balance opportunities. currently, there's no opportunity for advancement or no career path for the Information Technology department. They have a lot of work to do to attract the talent needed.
Diagnostic Imaging Technologist (Current Employee) – Oakland, CA – January 22, 2017
Lack of supervision & direction from leadership workers do it all and can not own up programs with in the work place. It all is a free for all with not much ownership from workers. Also it does not help that it seems to always be undermanned. Vacations build up very slowly. pay is fair unless you are working as an MA.
pay is fair ( ecluding MA)
Undermanned, lack of direction, software systems do not work with eachother smoothly.
Center Therapy Director (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – January 21, 2017

Front Office Specialist (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – January 20, 2017
