Recommend agency to work for in Ohio?

  1. Hi, I am a RN, working in a telemetry unit and would like to pick up some extra time with an agency here in Ohio. Anyone out there have any recommendations on which agencies are good to look at (or avoid). I would like to know why you would recommend it and what to ask in an interview with them. I hear some agencies pay quite a bit more per hour than others and some even cut you a check that day before you leave the hospital! I've only been an RN for about 9 months so I don't know if that would hurt me or not.

    I hope this helps...I ran into a HORRIBLE :angryfire experience with INTREDIP agency; their orientation process, which was promised to be paid, was not; the information was incomplete, leading to a very upsetting situation with an employer they sent me to; the 'head' of the office (who was the scheduler for the nurses) was rude and inconsiderate ...in all, a place that I would never reccomend to anybody. You've been a nurse 9 months, and may or may not have difficulty signing on with an agency; some of them like for nurses to have a year's experience. NRC is excellent (at least here in NWO), and pays well; ESSN also pays well, and is noted for a very flexable paycheck distribution (also, they have benifits available). Good luck to you!!!

    Don't really know what you may want to say, but I am from NorthWest Ohio (Toledo area). Hope this helps.

    I'm in the Cleveland area and have worked for several agencies. My personal preference is First Assist and ATC. ATC pays daily right into your bank account. Both of these have low cancellation rates (in my experience). Don't know if they stretch to the Toledo area or not.

    I used to work for American Nursing Care. They were good to their nurses!
    They were always helpful in finding you what you are looking for. You can visit their website to find out more. www.americannursingcare.com
    Hope this helps
