I did 8-weeks for Fastaff in Reno it was 100% positive. $37/hr plus $200/week tax free expense money. 48 hr/week gaurantee. totally paid for 1 bedroom apartment with cable and phone already hooked up at no expense to me. Friendly staff. Good hospital. Not one negative issue in my book.
Does that mean you worked a strike, or just did a travel assignment? I would never do a strike, but I keep my mouth shut about what other people see fit to do. Fastaff used to be known as US Nursing, and Ryad, and had a really, really sleazy reputation--all they did was strike nursing. The old owner, Dan Mordecai, died some time back, so it may be different now.
However, let me say--if it WAS a strike--they did not pay you nearly enough. I have taken many travel assignments, and the pay was always more than $37 an hour. I know you have to factor in the other perks--and the loction--for example, in San Francisco for a regular travel assignment, as far back as 2000 I got $3000 a month for a housing allowance--thought that was awesome--UNTIL I found out travelers from another company got that PLUS a free rental car!
