I worked for them as a CNA, but the problem was I wasn't experienced, I'd just gotten my license. If you know what you're doing and are looking for extra work, or a part-time job then they'd probably be alright. The pay wasn't bad, my only complaint was I was sent to a floor where the other CNA had cancelled so I had 30 patients on a med/surg floor with no orientation. Luckily the nurses were super nice and helped out as much as they could, but I was pretty overwhelmed.
- 0May 7, '07 by StormikrisHi MGA health care staffing called me also... Not sure about them because a couple days after my first phone call someone else from the agency called me. Kind of puts me off that they need people so badly that they'll not know that someone else is trying to recruit from the same office.
- 0May 21, '07 by WoosahRNMGA does a lot of home care. I don't know about the hospital stuff. I have met CNAs who hated it but then I have met nurses who loved it. I did interview but decided to stay with my job until I finished school. It is basically a room full of recruitors. When I did an online app I got a call within 10 minutes (not even kidding). They spend their time sucking up to you and being your best friend which is a little annoying. And they don't know who is calling you or that you have even been in there interviewing and doing paperwork. I got another call from one of them the day I was in there doing paperwork. Even now, 3 months later I got a call from yet a different guy about interviewing. Basically if you show up, they will give you a job. They aren't healthcare workers but all your scheduling and questions go through them even if you are doing a home health case with a family. The CNAs that I talked to said they were pressured and threatened to work more than they were scheduled but the nurses just generally said they liked it so I guess it depends.
A co-worker of a friend just got hired as the director there. Not sure if it is peds or of nursing in general. She says it has changed a lot but again I have not experienced it for myself.
- 0Feb 28, '08 by HoozdoQuote from kytheI talked money with them once. The max they would offer was 47-48/hr for general ICU. I think that was good pay for agency, but basically I made more than that working for overtime at my own facility.Bumping this up...
Does anyone know how MGA's pay is compared with other agencies?
It seems from this thread that their treatment of employees is a little "iffy". How does it compare with other agencies in terms of facilities and locations where you are sent?
I have meant many agency nurses from MGA that worked at my old job filling in the ICU. They say MGA kept them as busy as they wanted to be. The one exception would be day shift in the summer time when census is generally low in all hospitals.
I still get calls from them on/off over a year later after initially talking to them!
- 0Jun 23, '08 by EMTJeremyAnyone else heard anything about them lately? I got a call from them for a Travel EMT position up in Holbrook and Show Low. Sounds pretty good... $16/hr plus $50/night for hotel/gas, etc. Just wondering if anyone's heard anything else. They have me signed up for a CIT class next week. I wanna know what I'm getting into before I quit my job in retail...
