I responded to a craigslist ad in November when I was looking for a private duty job and I had a telephone interview with this agency. They wanted me to come in to have an orientation, so I did. They advertised "paid orientation" and a "$2000 sign on bonus". I also gave them $10 for a background check. I wasted my whole day there because they apparently "lost" the case I was supposed to be hired for and totally blew me off
. They never paid me for my orientation which the fine print in my employee handbook said it would be paid after working 40 hours. The sign-on bonus was a crock. If you work 500 hours you get an extra 500 dollars X4 times. And I went to pick up my background check (for another employer) 2 months later and apparently they never ran it.. but offered to because they saw in my file that I paid for it. I wonder how many other nurses paid for background checks that never got ran. They seemed like they were running an assembly line in there so I imagine that extra money could ad up for them. It really T's me off!
