? got some info about an assignment - does this sound good?

  1. 0
    I spoke with a "highly rated" travel company today and got some info about a "sample" travel assignment they have in Riverside, CA.

    I'm looking for opinions of whether or not this sounds like a good deal. Keeping in mind that everybody has different goals - my goal is to make money, that's it.

    Sample: $45/hr
    $20 hourly rate
    $20/hr for housing stipend which is $720/wk (recruiter based on 36hr/wk)
    $5/hr for meals and incidentals
    this is without them providing housing or insurance (i'll be on my wife's insurance)

    Aside from pay, that is possibly the worst assignment there is in California. Also one of the rare HCA hospitals in California. Perhaps the two things are related?

    I wouldn't go there for $20 more an hour and live in one of the worst gang infested cities in America.

    Ask this recruiter if this is a difficult assignment and see what she says. Then ask her why she didn't volunteer this info and why this assignment is OK for a first time traveler.

    Thanks for the heads-up. Never done a travel assignment before and that is one concern I have - ending up in a crap area at a crap hospital because I didn't know better.

    Depends. Do you just want money (if you have a good offer that is), or do you want to work at one of the very worst hospitals in California? Yes, it is an HCA hospital, one of only 6 in California, and the worst one of the 6. Besides that, Riverside has one of the most gang infested area in California. There are a lot of other choices, rule this one out if you are a new traveler.
