    I have come to the conclusion by talking with other nurses who have worked for various agencies, one office can be the worst while your next experience, with the same company, in a different city or state can be really, really good.
    I understand that every agency is not going to be exactly what I want, but I'm not going to just give up on my current one because a few things have happened. After speaking to another nurse at work last night, I definately think I need to be more available and try to form some relationships with my staffing department. After all, I am here to work and they are the people that are going to call me to get me working.
    Rather than give up on my current agency, I'm going to give Intelistaff a call and when one can;t work me the other one hopefully will.
    I'm new to this and am trying to keep an open mind.

    Intelistaf has a pretty poor record in the Kansas City area.

    Makes one wonder how much attention their bloated top heavy corporate office pays to quality control and recruitment of skilled and honest office staff. In Kansas City at least, it seems they don't pay any attention at all.

    Choosing an agency is really difficult and with the national agencies you can find out more about them from websites so picking through a national one is not hard at all. Personally, I tried after school looking for agencies and eventually gave up and just went with one where the recruiter just kept calling me after I talked with him and always was nice and had a good attitude. All in all if you know that you can get a certain pay with one agency the other usually can match it so just choose one where you will like the contact person that you deal with. I've worked with Medix Health here in Phoenix for a little while and found them to be nice and always able to get me where I want to go when I want it.

    Helloo!
    I'm looking for a good time-proved recruitment agency in California. Are there some suggestions from your expirience? I'm afraid to be cheated.

    I have remained loyal to Kforce for years. Just started with Nursefinders but I really have gotten the best experience from Kforce in Irvine.

    This post is about per diem work in California. Not the type of agency that you are looking for. These agenceis do not work with nurses without green cards and work experience in the US already.

    For what you are looking for, post it in the International Forum.

    I have worked for Favorite Nurses in the past and always found them very nice to deal with. They always had many shifts for me to pick from and the pay was pretty good. Check them out. They are nationwide, and do travel, contract and per diem. I also worked for All About Staffing, but they only staff at HCA hospitals - great pay also. Good luck

    I've worked for Favorite Nurses for about 2-3 years now. I agree, their great. I just love my recruiters. For some reason, Favorite Nurses seems to have it on the ball over my other agency - MSN. They always seem to know whats going on no matter what time of day or night. That's important to me. If I decided at 4 a that I want to work later that day, I want to call and let someone know. If I call MSN, something just doesn't sound right - almost like their winging it and just agreeing with me. I don't know, maybe I'm crazy at 4 a. It may take a little while before you find and agency that right for you. Cathy, RN, BSN, Cleveland
