My experience at Lifemark was a positive one. Hired out of field placement, I was made to feel valued and apart of the team. The clinical team is supportive and encourage questions you may have about treatment options and have a good open door policy.
Pros
Constantly learning and collaborative environment.
Cons
Pay isn't reflective of role each clinician brings to their clients.

Having worked for Lifemark for 12 years,.I found it stressful.compared to working for a small one owner clinic. Having worked in the same clinic with the same group of coworkers before Lifemark bought the clinic. I find its not the company who.makes it a great place to work, its your boss and coworkers.
Pros
People you work.with and great computer program
Cons
Stressful and very busy

I love my job, we have a great team and you feel valued as an employee. Being with the company has taught me so much from an administrative assistant perspective.

PTA compensation is beyond under valued. You are only a number there, not a real person. They discriminate and will let you go for your lifestyle and if you have any disabilities. Not a professional company. Good luck!
Pros
Fairly easy job
Cons
No security in job and discrimination low low wages

If we love what we do (Mastery), love the people with whom we do it (Chemistry), and love the reason for doing it (Delivery), would we still call it work? This is Lifemark!

People are inspired to do what they do well by the love they feel for what they do (Mastery), by the people with whom they share tasks and relationships (Chemistry), and by their commitment to being of service to others (Delivery).
Cons
No real cons

This is a good way to build up some paid clinical experience hours for future academic/professional pursuits; however, don't expect to be able to save much money from the work. The pay is minimum wage with no paid breaks. This is despite the requirement of a diploma or degree, the high physical demands of the job, the level of responsibility required, and the fact that the home itself pays significantly more per hour for similar staff (i.e. recreation aide). The job itself is a good learning opportunity in the field of geriatric physiotherapy, you get the chance to build personal relationships with many of the residents, and the actual people I worked with were great; however, the company itself lacks proper communication and fair wages for its PTAs.
Pros
Connecting with the residents, clinical experience
Cons
Awful pay, poor communication

Full-time permanent? You get benefits. Good! There aren’t many growth opportunities but to move into the corporate side of the company, or reports side.

Others might say, “this is a great entry level job for Kinesiologists.” But we are regulated professionals and should be treated as such. We should be able to make clinical decisions, and focus more on client care, and less on laundry, cleaning, and passive modalities (that are not evidenced based). Transition the role away from PTA and more towards RKin because that’s what the role deserves. We are more than an assistant. We are part of the interdisciplinary team with a focus in active rehabilitation. So stop delegating IFC, TENS, U/S, and let us create strengthening and work conditioning. Stop blending the RKin role with PTA, cleaners, laundromat, and student intern tasks. But treat us like the professionals that we are. So unless this company changes their perspective on the respect given to Kinesiologists, this role IS a stepping stone. Then go ahead and chase after that bigger dream, where your work and effort will match the compensation.
Pros
Quick learning curve. Great team, if you’re lucky. Good skills to add on your resume.
Cons
Ceiling, too many passive modalities, doing laundry, cleaning, finishing tasks that are not completed by the individuals

Professional and fast paced environment depending on location. Can sometimes be stressful, but the team culture works to alleviate major stress. Welcoming environment and can become like a second family. Overall good job, easy to hit career ceiling though and not much room for growth even when interest is expressed. Business casual dress, but firm against unnatural hair color, and frowns upon tattoos and alternative piercings.

In my job description I have been given a broader scope than previously available for PTA's in my area. I have been tasked with building up my own case load of regular clients that I see for treatments that are within my professional scope. Working closely with the PT I help workers compensation clients with their rehabilitation. This has broadened the scope of what PTA's had been doing in the clinic in the past. With the increased responsibility came a nice increase in wage. This made the job more desirable for me and made it more competitive compared to other jobs in the area. The clinic I work in has a great team collaboration culture which makes going to work more enjoyable. The hardest part of my current role is finding time for charting and room prep all while giving treatment throughout the day. If you like being challenged and busy this is a great environment for you.

I've worked for this company, it's not an entry level administrative job. The salary is minimum wage ($15/hr) with high expectations, high stress & they expect you to babysit the physiotherapists. The physiotherapists don't clean up after themselves, they're slobs, disrespectful towards front desk staff. The clientele is disrespectful, they don't understand English. Stay away!!!!
Pros
None
Cons
Salary, high expectations, high stress, constant disrespect from all sides

It is unfortunate to learn that your expectations of the role and the company were not met. Stress can happen in positions with a lot of responsibility, especially when balancing client-facing and in-clinic demands. Generally our HR team as well as local leaders are always available to provide guidance, training, and support when challenges like this arise in the workplace. We appreciate the contributions you made to our local clinic, and we are sorry that this did not work out for you.

Great staff at my former location: friendly and good office morale, willing to answer questions you have. But no training. I shadowed the PTA for almost two days and received a presentation on one of the injuries we often treated. Kins have a very broad degree and very little, if any, clinical experience. They, like anyone else, need to be trained in their specific job. There was no experienced kin (I was a new grad) to explain or show how the job worked, or even understand what my degree had taught me to do. I was told on more than one occasion that I would be sent to another Lifemark location to shadow a kin there, but never was.
Pay for a starting kin is relatively good (many places are less), but you do not get paid if clients don't show up/cancel last minute and are told you can't charge if you want to keep them; I calculated that I would have to have the cancellation/no show rate at 16.7% or less (it currently is about 20% of appointments) to even keep my wage at that of the PTA, never mind the extra education I have, plus the $1000 annually to keep my license.

Thank you for your comprehensive perspective. Depending on geographical location it is possible to experience limited in-person training options, however we offer many telephonic and virtual solutions that connect our employees with experts from other clinics. We appreciate your contributions to the clinic and the community; all the best with the next steps in your career.
