Any info to share about this company, are they dependable, do they support their nurses well, pay fair etc?
I was just coming on here to discuss this agency. I am looking for a job in a specific area. I have traveled with one previous agency, and although I had a really great experience with them, they don't have what I'm looking for currently. I found FlexCare on highwayhypodermics.com and figured they were the best of the best since they are in the top 10 of 2012. Well.. boy was I wrong! I spoke with a recruiter named ****name redacted per site ToS**** He returned my phone call with not even a "hi how are you", just a "what is it exactly you are looking for?" Then proceeded to tell me the ways of travel nursing. Stating he had a travel position in the area I was looking for, but basically that someone is already submitted with him for that position, and the chances of me getting it are slim. I'm pretty sure **** didn't want to go through the effort of calling my contacts and do all the work for a first timer.
Needless to say, he basically told me that if it's a "vacation" with family that I'm looking for in Texas, then to go for a vacation, not a travel assignment. Then, he told me that "some travel company obviously has your profile already done, so maybe you should stick with them". I told him I felt like I was being put off, and he said "I'm just trying to explain the ways of traveling to you". I get it buddy. The conversation ended with him telling me it was a good idea to stick with my original company.
I have flourishing reviews from all the hospitals I've worked at. If they don't want my contract... I'm out. I'm glad other people have had a positive time with this agency. I had high expectations, but I have NEVER been treated like that by a travel company. I would have been ready to do the dirty work to get into that assignment he spoke about, but he wasn't. Obviously.
