Favorite is without question one of the most ethical national agencies out there. It sounds like you encountered a bad staffer. You should do Favorite and other nurses a favor and report this person. I have no doubt they will fire him/her if you have any kind of proof (old emails still in your deleted folder maybe?).
For what it's worth, I worked per diem and travel with Favorite many years ago. I dealt with several different people, and they were all top notch.
Now days I work for a regional agency (Cascade). One of the owners of Cascade used to work at Favorite years and years ago. She's as honest and ethical as they come, and I've been with her agency now exclusively for about 4 years full-time.
Feb 6, '07Just wanted to add a comment that you should keep in mind, that experiences, both positive and negative, can change with dealing with different staffers, different mgrs, different agencies over different periods of time; and one person's experience, while a good predictor, may not be exactly so for you. I have learned this myself from trying to find out things from different people about different employers and going around and finding out for myself. Over time, with changes in people and circumstances, there were changes in different employers that made them go from so-so, or everything I ever wanted, to "gotta get outta here". So, I would say try to get as much different input as possible, try it out yourself, on "trial runs"; and be prepared to move on if necessary. That's why it's always a good idea to go with at least two agencies at one time. Good luck. And please come back to keep us updated.
