    I had an aweful experience with AM! My recuriter was basically a liar! Medical Express is their sister company & I did travel one assignment with them. Now I won't even talk to any company affiliated with them. The company I'm with now is great. Free private housing & my recruiter is awesome!

    I travelled with AMN for 2 years and I regret it. I went with them when I first became a travel rn because they were in all the magazines and seemed to be the most popular. Every time I took an assignment, if I wanted to extend the pay got decreased by 0.50 - $1.00 per hour. I am sorry but you can't tell me the facility is doing that. Once I started talking to other travelers I realized I was getting a bad deal. Now I work for a company that has FREE private housing w/ linens, cable, phone, appliances, pots and pans, rental car, and airfare all included, plus $30 - 35 / hour every contract. Sorry, AMN can't even come close to that. Plus when I working for them I didn't even know they didn't provide long or short term disability. Now I make sure any company I goes with has that. AMN is too big of a company to be so cheap. They are getting 3x's what you are and still wanna pay crappy while nurses work like dogs. LOL. Like I said before, I really wish I would have know a traveler to ask questions to before I started.

    Who do you work for, that you were able to take a virtual tour of your private housing? I am just starting out and have a company who is looking for a contract for me in California. I will only work corrections and it has to be warm........so far it has been one month now, and it is getting close to my availablitity date and no contract, should I be concerned??

    I don't pay for private housing with my agency. In fact, I just took a virtual tour of the private apt I will be occupying for my next assignment- Master suite, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, washer/dryer, phone, cable TV, fireplace, utilities, linens/dishes, furniture, etc provided and paid for by my agency. The pay is great, and my recruiter is very nice, too.


    I've gotten calls from lots other agencies- including American Mobile. they offered me $16.00 per hr less than I am getting now, for a nearly identical assignment.
    Helllllllo Nurse you do you work with that you get to have avirtual tour it sounds tooooo good to be true.I'm in a quandry trying to figure out who to go with since this is my first travel job. I'll be going to Ca., Wa., or Nv. or any other cool place for the summer. help me please!
    thanks margeux peds nurse for 25 yrs.

    The virtual tour of the apt is done by the apt company, not the travel company. It is usually on the website of the apt where you will be living.
    This is very common, I have seen a virtual tour of each apt complex, as well as th eapt before I even moved into that area.

    Thanks Suzanne, who do you work for? I am looking for corrections only and need some advise about companies. Any suggestions? Any helpful hints about what to look for, ask about or information I make sure to find out about?
    Thanks in advance,

    Not sure who does corrections, I know that the agency that I work for doesn't.
    You should be worried about where you will be living, what your accomodations will be like, they should be private and you should not have to pay more for it, etc. Which utilities are included? What is reimbursement for your travel out, or will they fly you to the location, etc.....

    These are just a few of the questions.........
    AS far as I know, Corrections staffing is just done by a few agencies, but I am not sure of any of their names.....

    Hi laborrn, actually that wasn't my orginal message, somehow it looks as if I'm the lucky one to have that kind of travel compnay, but this is going to be my first time traveling. the company that's mentioned by nicky is On Assignment , they sound good don't they? I'm in the process of contacting them. let you know if they're really that good.

    I've been traveling with American Mobile for a year now. What can I say? I've traveled with 3 other agencies, and have tried recently to get an assignment with a fourth. My "recruiter" at Cross Country doesn't return my calls, and I haven't even taken an assignment with them yet. If they don't return them now, and I have trouble on an assignment, it's likely that I'll not get a call back THEN, either. Gee. I don't think I'll be taking an assignment with them after all.

    2 other companies (both large names) were worse. One small company was better, but they have fewer available assignments for me. All-in-all, if you get a good recruiter at AMN, they are a pretty good company to work for. At least they call you back. The pay rates vary per assignment, and per company, but I'll take a few dollars less to have a great recruiter (D.P.), who listens to my concerns and works with me to get what I want for an assignment. The housing is mostly good, and I pay a little extra for private housing, but it's worth it to me just to have someone support me when I'm out at the facility working hard. -Hope, RN

    Hi...I have actually been looking into AM...just out of curiousity...how much is " a little extra" for private housing? Because I am defintely not willing to share!
