Great place to learn about physical therapy and help patients get better
REHAB TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – Bloomfield Hills, MI – May 24, 2018
The first thing to do was to make sure all equipment was working and laundry was clean. A rehab tech is always on their feet helping patients with exercise. Other times were spent cleaning, organizing, folding laundry or front desk duties when needed. I learned something new every day even with prior knowledge of physical therapy. The clinicians were open-minded and willing to answer questions and made corrections when appropriate. There were days with higher volumes of patients than others so multitasking was required. The hardest part of the job was managing the multiple patients you worked with before they see the therapist but it becomes easy after you've gotten the hang of it. The most enjoyable part was seeing the patients improve as they continued to come for therapy. Seemed pretty nice overall, however, raises were horrible and incentives were nice (if your clinic topped other clinics) but if you decide to quit before the distribution date (2 months after the quarter you worked so hard for) you get screwed over. I felt the position was way too much work for little pay and recognition.
Free lunches sometimes, treats from patients, hands on knowledge, get to meet and know new people
Long days on your feet, not paid enough, some coworkers don't work as hard
Front Office Coordinator (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 17, 2018
If it weren’t for my wonderful coworkers in my clinic and region, I would not still work for this company. I work at the front desk and even if you wanted to there is no room for advancement. They also do not pay very well for the “little people”. They only seem to care about the therapists most times. They also are very number hungry and make you harass patients when they do not come in for their appointments.
I have learned a great deal working for this growing company!
Multi-Site Clinical Director (Current Employee) – Orland Park, IL – May 1, 2018
Working at ATI gives you a great deal of experience in responsibility for regular patient care as well as staff management and metric management. Being active in building referral relationships built on trust has been a valuable tool I have attained working for ATI. I have learned a great deal about dealing with differing personalities in order to run a successful clinic including getting the most out of each employee in a TEAMWORK dynamic. I have been honored to work with great people.
Very nice to place to work! The staff and the patients are awesome!
Rehabilitation Technician (Former Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – April 30, 2018
This place is really nice. The typical day at work is pretty steady. Sometimes it's slower or faster, but for the most part there's a happy medium. I learned a lot about how to communicate effectively with different kinds of people.
I highly recommend ATI Physical Therapy to perspective emplyoees
Physical Therapy Internship (Current Employee) – Mesa, AZ – April 25, 2018
A typical day's work for a Physical Therapy Technician includes working the front desk, following a checklist provided to you by an ATI clinical assistant which lists paperwork to be completed for patients seen that day. Using a computer patient's charts are pulled up where directions written by Physical Therapist are followed as you assist patients through their workout/therapy. This varies per patient and usually includes a variety of exercises and stretches addressing patient's individual's needs. Following patient workout/therapy a Physical Therapist sees patient and directs you to apply heat, ice and/or premod depending on patient's needs.
I learned how to collaborate with other staff to achieve the best results for patients and I learned how to balance working with 3 patients at the same time effectively. I was taught how to diffuse situations where individuals visiting the clinic might become anxious over insurance issues and/or dealing with extreme pain due to their injuries.
ATI Physical Therapy has an upbeat positive working environment. If an employee has a question or makes an error management is quick to respond in a positive manner to help/assist employee.
The hardest part of my job was the initial learning curve for the position. This lasted a very short time, due to the other employees in my clinic being so willing to teach and assist me as I became familiar with ATI.
The most enjoyable part of my job was working one on one with patients, encouraging them as they worked through their specific goals for recovery. Seeing a patient "graduate"more... from their treatment is very rewarding to me.less

Men suffering from midlife crisis Running Company frat boy atmosphere
PAS (Former Employee) – Bolingbrook, IL – April 10, 2018
The pillars of the company are a joke one of them is crush it I'm sorry that is ridiculous. The men running the company act like a bunch of Frat Boys. The company can't pay its employees a living wage many of them have to rely on government assistance programs to make ends meet. Constantly asking to donate to the company's charity literally expecting every employee to donate as much as possible and asking their friends and family to donate. The people running the company really need to start with Charity begins at home take care of your employees pay them what they're worth. Raises just came out and they're not even 1% company really needs to think about what their values are and they need to start valuing their employees especially the good ones that they will be losing soon due to bad pay
Corparate is out of the loop and there is no room for advancement
Patient Account Specialist (Former Employee) – Bolingbrook, IL – April 3, 2018
They emphasize advancement but unless you suck up and be what they want there is no room for you, either termination or blackballed. All managers and supervisors earned their position on friendship and throwing eachother under the bus. If you speak up you are targeted. This company has a revolving door. No one has earned an upper position on knowledge all managers and heads are out of the loop. If you tell them how to correct issues or how to make more money they don't listen. They promote the ATI way which is so far from the truth. Corporate does not even acknowledge people at the bottom of the totem pole. Pay is not up to par for the amount of work and pressure you are in. People who honestly do not know their job continue to work here due to the covering up for friends. Expect to correct their mistakes from years of mess ups. The benefits are decent the only reason they got 2 stars.
PTO and Sick days
No advancement, poor pay, stressful high intensity environment
Patient Advocate (Current Employee) – Bolingbrook, IL – March 24, 2018
This department has so much turnover it’s crazy. the ceo and upper management needs to look at the direct manager of that department. The rules only apply to those who aren’t part of her inner circle. She never recognized good workers and consistently gossips in her office all day. The work isn’t terrible but it is fast paced since the department is always short handed. This is a promising company with great benefits but they truly need to look at how all the departments are being handled in order to truly flourish.
Front Office Coordinator (Current Employee) – Traverse City, MI – March 19, 2018
The specific location that I work at has great team members. Overall, it is pleasant on a daily basis. However, the company is very corporate with no consideration for the individual(s). It is fast paced and stressful with minimum staff. There is not enough help provided and it always come down to the bottom line ($$). The CEO can post constantly about expeditions for the ATI Kids Foundation yet, employees do not receive even a Christmas bonus or acknowledgement. There biggest focus is being the FIRST nationwide PT practice and not for the employees who get them there.
great team members at specific location
Low pay, no breakrooms allowed, very corporate, too many managers

Job promotions are political by who you know and not experience. They don't value their employees whatsoever. The work environment is stressful with very low moral caused by management. If you don’t meet their numbers, your out . All of current management are physical therapists who don't know how to run a medical clinic or have any clue about what goes on in one. Only interested in decreasing OSHA recordable events not providing medical care. Stay away, the salary is not worth your license.
Massage Practitioner (Former Employee) – Washington State – March 6, 2018
Not competitive with other companies. The good therapists gain experience and move on to greener pastures. The corporate higher ups keep chipping away at our benefits, too. They changed to inferior insurance, took away several benefits, and in general make it more difficult to nake a decent living.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Bolingbrook – February 28, 2018
Job promotions are political by who you know and not experience. They don't post all positions that are available so they can choose who they want without interviewing. Horrible HR communications with staff. They don't value their employees whatsoever. The work environment is stressful with very low moral and the company doesn't do anything to improve it. The company was once owned by an individual and has since been sold to investors and now everybody is treated like a number and not a person. All of the perks that used to be in place are taken away. People are let go without reason. All of current management are physical therapists that don't know how to run a business. Stay away.
this Is a good place to get experience if you are right out of school.
RD (Former Employee) – Kirkland, WA – February 27, 2018
This is a good place to start if you are right out of school. But keep in mind there is no growth in this place. Managers are not well trained for their positions, they expect you to bend over for them and go above and beyond expectioon, always accommodate and don’t expect any any raise, growth or the ability to use the sick days you earn. They pay you minimum wage and expect you to do everything from marketing and advertisement to paperwork. There is more of a cult environment and if you get poorly treated and you mention it you will be the one who gets singled out and questioned.
Good place for new grads
Minimum pay, no room for growth, use of sick days discouraged, they give you a hard time trying to use the vacation time you earned, expect you to be at work in worst conditions, no room for growth
Physical Therapist Assistant (Current Employee) – Tinley Park, IL – February 25, 2018
ATI has a great 401 K program which offers both traditional and Roth. The pay is very low and the hours are long, but ATI facilities tend to have great teams in place. There is not much room for advancement.
