I loved this job, but could no longer afford the low pay
Nurse (Former Employee) – Tn – August 5, 2015
Working for Suncrest had many pros but they were overridden by the cons. The office staff were great at their job and were helpful, but they were also cliquey and gossipy. I worked their over a year and never "fit in". The scheduler was allowed to hire her family, so that family member got the close, and easier patients. I loved my patients which made up the majority of my day. It was rewarding to watch them heal, and go back to their lives.
Cons of the job were company instability, getting bought out and closing offices. Made a stressful environment. The insurance was expensive and had high deductibles. My final breaking point was the pay. Field staff were paid by how many cases completed and not hourly. We were not paid while we drove or while we charted. I would drive two or three hours a day without compensation. I spent many hours at night and on wknds charting, calling patients and Dr's without compensation. Btwn driving, charting, and phone calls I would have 10-20 hrs a week unpaid.
