Startes out great and ended horribly
Physical Therapy Aide (Former Employee) – Eugene, OR – July 10, 2017
As an aide, you will get taken advantage of by the clinic manager and some therapists without as much as a thank you in return. Be prepared to do things outside of your job description for the same pay. The only time you will get treated well is if you make the clinic manager feel good about him/herself all while making other aides and co-workers look bad. If you want a pay raise or promotion you probably won't get one unless you are the aide the manager likes best, which doesn't mean that, that is the aide that does the most, knows the most, and has been there the longest. This isn't just a one location type of issue, either. This happens at quite a few therapeutic associate clinics. If you choose to work here, I would advise to make acquaintances not friends. That is not to say that some therapists that work at these clinics are all rude. Some of them are great and appreciate you, but it's few and far between. As far as patient care goes, the managers really only care how many patients can come in and out of the clinic and not actual patient care.
