Nurse Case Manager - Outpatient Rehabilitation (Former Employee) – West Orange, NJ – July 22, 2018
I was the outpatient case manager. I had 3 Directors in one year as my boss. It was very disorganized. Very dirty. My last Director was so nasty and mean all the time. My last day of work that Friday she comes to me at 4pm and wants me to show her my job. Needless to say I was there to 6pm which I did not get paid for.
Teaneck is the worst. The center manager has no respect for the employers. Very arrogant, no social skills, the therapist is very nice. Higher up management do not care about your feelings always on managers side. The work load is not bad if you dont have the center manager breathing down your neck all the time. They see the bad you do but the good they dont see. Very stressful to work there. I am glad I no longer there.
I loved working at Kessler because I got to see the healthy growth of the patients fist hand. Working at Kessler was enjoyable because we worked as a team to get the job done. we would go out of our way to make sure we all finished our task.

Kessler was great firsthand experience for people needing inpatient hours for PT school, however make sure you keep good contact with the facility as it will greatly help you reference the hours later on

Case Management Department is a team alone. The case managers work individually with their own team, but assist colleagues to provided appropriate and safe discharges for their patients. They also work together to help colleagues who may have a heavier assignment to add balance to reduce the stress and workload

Great atmosphere and relationships between departments. Being in an environment where everyone works to make someone''s life better after an accident or medical incident makes you have faith in the human spirit of giving.
Challenging caseloads with lots of learning but only average pay
Physical Therapist (Former Employee) – West Orange, NJ – February 15, 2018
Working for Kessler provides you with a challenging but rewarding caseload with diagnoses mainly involving the neurologic realm (with some ortho cases as well). Many great personalities to work with and learn from. Tough to advance in the clinical ladder and hard to get involved with professional projects. Pay is average for the amount of physical labor and hard work you put in. Definitely a great experience though.
management has favortism and not honest when communicating facts.
Cook/Supervisor (Former Employee) – East Orange, NJ – January 30, 2018
Enjoyed working with most co-workers, patients and visitors. Management was horrible, abusive and unfair to employees on a daily basis. Supervisor acted immature and enjoyed playing with some employees feelings, to the point of making them tear.
nice co-workers, benefits (vacation/paid sick time off)
RN Case Manager (Former Employee) – Marlton, NJ – January 21, 2018
The DON is extremely arrogant and a bully. She belittled her managers daily. Placed way too much work on managers then belittled and badgered them when things could not be accomplished. Would keep managers in meeting talking about herself making it difficult to have the time to finish work. Horrible place to work.
great team work great place to learn poor staffing at times is the hardest part of the job learned patient care and time management performed ADLs and safe patient handling performed vitals and glucose testing
Although temporary, this was one of the best places I worked at. Some positions you run out of the door because you've worked 3min over your 8 hour day.....at Kessler I found myself not even aware I was on hour 10 of a 5 day work week. It's long hours, but you find a good balance in your work day and appreciate everyone around you.
Management what management? The CNA's work in a click, and not all of them treat the patients with the respect they deserve. The CNA's do not work as a team with the nurses. The nurses do not all work as a team either or have the skills they should have after graduating nursing school. Patients beware when choosing a rehabilitation facility, and always have your family present.
