Center Operations Director (Current Employee), Portland, Oregon – August 6, 2014
Cons: no balance, aod encouraged staff to go behind people's backs
Working at Concentra gave me great knowledge of what I never wanted to do again. Backbiting was encouraged and rewarded. Staff often tattled on each other to get ahead. The management treated staff as subservient. Patients were treated as cattle, rushing them through. The best part of the job were easily the best part of the job but all else was painful. – more... Just dont do it. – less

Pros: pto when your allowed to take it
Cons: bad manager
My day would start with a line of patients out the door. With wait times for drug screens/physicals and work comp dr visits that consistently were in the 3 hour range.

I was constantly berated by my Hispanic coworkers for not being bilingual and the manager promoted this. High amounts of favoritism to certain employees and rules that only apply to the employees that the manager does not like. – less
