Clinical Assistant in Calgary, AB
on 26 June 2022
Really enjoyed my time here
This job is VERY stressful to learn, but extremely rewarding and enjoyable. I had no prior clinic experience which did not help. There is a lot to learn and you are expected to learn fast. Optimum offers a lot of support and training and patience to learn. Once you get the hang of it, it’s so fun. I have most always felt support and trust from management. It isn’t terribly difficult to get time off and they offer a benefits plan for fully time employee. It definitely varies from clinic to clinic. The busier clinics are a lot harder as they are fast paced. If you can meet that pace and enjoy quick thinking they’re perfect. The slower clinics are nice too. You get to know the patients well. The only issue that caused problems for me is often the practitioners do not understand how difficult it is to be a clinic assistant. They pay admin fees so often they treat you like a personal assistant, and forget that you manage multiple practitioners at once and have entirely separate job duties of your own. Expectations of you are high, but reasonable. The problem with the busier clinics is that the expectations of you are higher, but the pay is the same. Regardless, I think the pay is fair for the expectations. I feel respected and appreciated by optimum wellness centres and I would recommend working there.

Terrible company

Great support for all practitioners, mentoring available in an integrated model where our patients come first
Great support for all practitioners, mentoring available in an integrated model where our patients come first. You’re able to focus on treating your patients and have the admin side of things looked after. Opportunities for growth and great team to help you achieve your career goals
Registered Massage Therapist in Calgary, AB

Optimum
On top of the 60% therapists are payed. The head office takes a huge chunk out of our salary for admin and appointment fees. I understand that we get bookings through our admin, however if you're a therapist that does not see a lot of patients then it's a huge blow to your income. Head office seems to focus on their more established therapists than their new ones. Meaning, you'll probably sit in your massage room for 8 hours hoping that at least one patient comes in. Weeks with open schedules but head office does not give you the resources, nor book you with patients. Chiropractors and physio with full schedules. it seems like massage therapist have to start from zero. Thanks optimum for advertising the average salary of a massage therapist. Most of your therapist don't even make close to what you advertise. Other than that staff are friendly and encouraging.

Do not recommend.
If you get a good clinic it’s an okay place to work. Dealing with head office is a nightmare. If I had known what I know now, I would never have started there.

Interview questions

General questions about myself and how professional I was. It was more of an interview where they were attempting to know me as a person. It’s because they teach you everything. So more than your knowledge they focus on hiring a person who is willing to work efficiently and learn.
