Worst place to work nurses are lazy, management is all for the nurses understaffed.Have aides that have been there to long need to retire,want to be in control of the shift when they work overtime,management doesn't support the aides.The work that is u do should be paid more $.
Kessler is a great job to look into because its a job where you can show appreciation to others by caring for them, and handling their disabilities. Sometimes its tiring but its worth it to see happy smile on the patients faces. The employees are great to work with and if you want to work around people who are productive and helpful then you should work at Kessler Rehab.

Although the work I did here was completely rewarding on every level, the employees and especially the management of this place should all be fired for how they treat one another. I was forced to quit because I didnt make the right friends and not bc of any other reason.

Kessler is Ultra-conservative. When they're not trying to fire you under your 90-day probation, they're salary is not that bad. Benefits could be better, but they're not the worst either ($40 co-payments).

Dietary Supervisor (Current Employee) – West Orange, NJ – March 23, 2015
A typical day requires management of food service production by ordering food, supplies, making sure staff is scheduled and are present at work. Ensuring that meals are produced and served in a safe manner in accordance to guidelines set forth by HAACP. And ensuring that meal delivery is efficient and in accordance with prescribed dietary restrictions Co-workers are a great support system when it comes to making sure everything flows smoothly. Challenges such as food shortage, staff shortage, inclement weather has pushed me to deal with obstacles necessary to successfully run a department. Most enjoyable part .The most enjoyable part of the day is having accomplished all of the goals set forth and that is a smooth production whether it be for the patients or for catering.

Correspondence Secretary (Former Employee) – HIM – January 4, 2015
my life is helping people so I enjoy being that person that someone can come to that I can help. Life is so short and the patients that came to me get they records released was patients that was in car accidents, boating accidents airplane accidents. So its not only about the job its more to me of helping people
The work enviornment is fast pace and hard, but rewarding when helping people in their time of need. The employees are typically very friendly.
Nursing assistant, work (Current Employee) – Chester, NJ – November 19, 2014
This is an increasingly hard profession. The patients with advanced medical technology are surviving more complex conditions that would have otherwise killed them leaving them in more complex conditions such as confusion, violence, debility, etc creating a more stressful and riskier environment. However the job is rewarding that you take the role of a caregiver for patients in their time of need. While they stay with you, you will see them increasingly get better for the most part as you accommodate their needs. The employees are typically very friendly and the benefits are fair. The job is not for the faint of heart as the job requires you to lift well over 100 lbs on a regular basis depending on the patient and injury. Although lifts are recommended for weights such as this with a quick paced environment which speed is necessary to move patients from place to place to make dinner, therapy, toileting, etc lifts are not always optional putting stress on the back and body making this occupation risky. There is a high risk for injury with this job ranking in the top five in the country for jobs that put people on disability. This job can also be very messy involving cleaning many human bodily fluids which without proper equipment and care can lead to infection for yourself. Like I mentioned the experiences and people you meet can make this work experience reward, but like any job there are payoffs.
Rewarding career in helping people in their time of need
Heavy lifting and high risk for infection without proper care for self with infectious patients
