You will get paid just as much as someone who doesn't do their job properly even when you go above and beyond for the company. Some chiropractors treat you like you're a nobody and better than you because they have a degree. You are basically a maid there.
Wellness Coordinator (Former Employee) – Oregon – March 8, 2019
Consistent schedule, bonus program for sales. It really depends on location and which doctors you work with. Management was awful. Communication was non existent and I just couldn't take it anymore. President of company talks down to people- very arrogant and unpleasant. I loved the job but they need to work on how to talk to their employees.
I work very quickly, so i finish a days work within the first couple of hours of being open. The rest of the day I am looking for things to do, highlighting paperwork, greeting patients and hoping that we get a new patient that walks in the door. The days go by slow most of the time, it gets pretty boring. However for such easy work you have a great opportunities to make decent money. You get a base pay + bonuses for selling patients on memberships or packages. The bonuses add up and can be more than a typical 2 week paycheck and if you have a bad month you do not get into trouble for not meeting sales goals. Also, being an employee for the company means you get adjusted for free! So the boringness is worth it for the benefits and opportunity to make a some extra cash. The only downside is that the company does not offer much room for advancements or growth.

Another slave mentality place to work. Long hours, low pay. The doctors coming out of school today will not be able to pay back their student loans on the low salaries offered by the Joint. Working 6 days a week.
Wellness Coordinator (Current Employee) – Orange County, CA – January 14, 2019
Love this job and helping people feel better! Decent commission pay out, good hours, free adjustments, and decent pay. Management is very involved and responsive. Computer system pretty straightforward. Easy to get any questions answered
Free adjustments, love hours open
Breaks can be hard to take, minimal room for growth
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Carmel, IN – January 11, 2019
Logged into my computer and waited for patients to come in. If a new patient came in we had to copy the paperwork and go over it with patient. The hardest part was learning how to use the computer. Management helped new employers.
Management is very unorganized. They are very demanding of employees. If you need a sick day or vacation time, good luck finding someone to cover for you because the people in charge of scheduling surely won’t help.
Free chiropractic care
Zero opportunity to grow and no benefits of any kind

They say that this is a "front desk" position however it entails more than that and they do not tell you. It is more sales, janitorial, marketing, calling patients, going to the bank, meeting deadlines, no real lunch, working over time, etc. Managers expect unrealistic goals to be accomplished and rarely do anything on their own.The list goes on but overall just not that great of an environment to be in.
Every place is set up for success. Its the people that make the workplace. I absolutely loved my job with the Joint. I stand behind the plans and concept that they offer. It has been my favorite job working here and i am extremely sad that i have to leave. I'm very thankful that i had the opportunity to work here.
The workplace culture becomes hostile very fast. You have a very small staff and no real room for growth - for anyone. Any slight advancement is desired by all, however don't trust this company to promote from within. They will always (and I mean ALWAYS) hire a stranger before promoting their own people, regardless of how loyal or hardworking their employees may be. Because the staff is so small, they are very unforgiving if you become sick - there's no one to cover your shift, and if someone IS available, expect them to be bitter towards you for having to come in of their day off. Most days you only work with one other person - the doctor. So if you don't get along, you won't have a good time. Also, you legally cannot take a lunch break for this reason. The doctor cannot be alone in the clinic, so be sure to pack your lunch or be prepared to pay for delivery every day.
I was fortunate enough to adore the doctor I worked with, however our location was the red-headed step child of the local Joint locations so we were constantly talked bad about, and anyone who came in to cover our days off always trashed the office.
Clinic Director (Former Employee) – Bluffton, SC – December 4, 2018
It was good for getting my hands on a lot of people and crafting my skill, but that’s it... Easy to burn out with the way they conduct business. High expectations for low pay. Opportunity for bonus with converting people to care, but it’s a tourist town. A lot of patients wouldn’t convert bc of this factor.
9+ hour days with no official lunch, really easy to burn out
Clinical Director (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – November 29, 2018
There are quite a few great things about working at The Joint. For each clinical director, you are in charge of the daily operations and taking care of patient needs. It's as if you own your own clinic without having the expenses of owning your own clinic. You come to work, work hard, take care of patients and administrative stuff for your job, and go home. The management takes care of the rest. It can be difficult to deal with the fact that the other employee working in the clinic is not under your management, especially if the employee decides not to do their job. The adjusting tables are not always updated in a timely manner, often there are things broken on each table. I gained a lot of adjustment experience while there.
No scheduled breaks, no scheduled lunch break, no other doctors scheduled to help until you have 60 avg pt visits per day for straight 30 days
Wellness Coordinator (Current Employee) – Glendale, CA – November 26, 2018
I loved working with all the people in the work place plus getting to know each patient made coming to work worth it. I am someone who constantly needs to be challenged and use my mind creatively. My boss would always find ways for me to invest my skills into the company and encourages me to grow as a business person...unfortunately that is not the track that I am on for my career and need to invest time elsewhere. I will be very sad to leave.
People I work with, close location, free Chiro, patients
