Has anyone heard of Alda Staffing?Elow

  1. Elow! I'm an RN from the Philippines trying to look for a job in the US. I already passed my IELTS and NCLEX exam. I submitted my resume thru emails to agencies based in the US. I also tried submitting it to a hospital directly but i'm not sure if they're willing to sponsor nurses from here. Anyway, a friend gave me the email add of Alda Staffing. After a week, an American called me and asked about my current job. Currently, i'll be starting to work as a part-time Clinical Instructor here but i do have plans of going back in the hospital during my extra days. Alda Staffing told me that i should be currently working in a hospital. Is that true? An interested client from California will be calling me for final interview over the weekend. Does anyone of you know about the possible questions they'll be asking? The regular rate is 28/hour, is that good? That's the highest rate i got so far, from the agencies i applied. Your responses will be greatly appreciated. If you know of anyone under Alda Staffing, please inform me as well. Thank you!!!

    Hello i have not heard of Alda agency. 28/hour is good already as a starting salary.Eventually it will increase.

    check out the international forum, always be a bit wary of agencies

    Which part of California? I only ask because it is relevant to your question about the rate of pay. In some places 28 is good. In others the high cost of living might make it seem like somewhat less.

    better check out the international forum. Also with retrogression in progress be prepared for a long wait. Plenty of info in the International forum and agency does differ slightly when a foreign nurse

    thank you fo your reply silverdragon! ..but what can u say about alda technologies in particular? do you have any feedback about them? or have you heard about anything bad like not fulfilling their promises in the contract? because i've heard some agencies still get away with letting the nurse sign a new contract with less attractive terms as soon as they set foot in the US.. :spin:
