Even though my experience working for Kindred/Rehabcare was subpar, I understand where you are coming from: This is an opportunity.
For the interview, be enthusiastic and be prepared to talk about your experience. You are most likely applying for a job at a SNF so know you're stuff (common conditions/diagnosis, patient demographics, treatment plans). Dress Business professional (blazer/dress pants). Remember, they WANT to hire someone. They aren't looking to badger you. Be relaxed and positive and you'll do fine.
Don’t go!!! All employees are hired for “full” or “part” time, but everyone is treated like a PRN. They expect you to come in when patients are available, be at least 80-85% productive and leave when you have seen your patients. They also want your tx time short and patients to be placed on restorative care with a Rehab tech performing what a licensed therapist should be doing. This with little regard to patient safety and overall quality care from a licensed therapist trained to monitor, observe and provide skilled knowledge to appropriately respond and address any patient issues! If you value your license and professional integrity do not work for Rehab Care now! It is all about money with no care for the patient! The facility I worked at and I and sure it is the same with all the agreements with Kindred and Rehab Care it that they are paid by the number of patients in the hospital. This means they profit more with less licensed therapist intervention with the patients with no incentive to direct patient care because that would mean they would have to pay therapist for their skilled knowledge and time and there would be less money in their pocket!!! At one time RehabCare was a good company to work for but now they are greedy and are willing to cut corners anyway they can to make a dollar!!!
Inquire about the availability of a 40 hour week and PRN help when needed.

Do not believe the manager. It is what it looks like and you know he's lying when he says "I'll be completely honest with you"

Be approachable, inqisitive, and real. Ask questions about the facility, expectations, meet the team, and ask about day to day operations to make sure it is a good fit for you.

Call and cancel you deserve better and do not need the stress.
Don't waste your time on a position that expects too much out of one person. This company only uses this position as a blame position anything that goes wrong is your fault. They pick and choose who will be held accountable. There is no follow through and pay is completely unfair. The program assistant does all the work while the manager gets paid the big bucks to play on their phone and get bonuses for all the hard work you put in.
Don't go to the interview. Better yet don't apply to this company.
