    Can you tell me your recruiter's name for On Assignment? I just sent in my paperwork for this company and can not get a call back from the recruiter, ever since I let him know it will be 6 month's before I can travel. Thanks
    Hello! I've met a traveler at my facility I work for that works for On- Assignment and she loves it, she been with them for 5 years, with no problems and has a good recruiter when she showed me her contract I was very much interested in that agency, so I request for an application. If you do not mind me asking, who is your recruiter.

    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.
    Could you send the info too. I am trying to find a good company to start off with.

    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.
    HEY CAN Y OU PM AS WELL AND TELL ME THE NAME OF YOUR COMPANY!!!

    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.
    hey man can you tell me the name of your company as well...private pm
    thanks

    I found the recruiter I talked to very pushy. She even called my work for a reference without my permmission and I hadn't accepted an assignment. I didn't even fill out an application just mentioned the name of the hospital I worked at.

    My husband who is an RT and I have been traveling with American Mobile for a few years now while i had a baby and finished my RN degree with EC. We traveled in CT for about a year and then came out to Southern Cali. We have had good experiences with them. They have always placed us in really nice housing. A few times his recruiter told him he would have to pay for part of the housing cost and he just said NO . So we have always lived in housing with everything but phone and cable paid. We live about 20 minutes from his job on the coast ...several of his coworkers are travelers too and they live right near the hospital and have their car broken into several times and generally don't live in the greatest area. With these travel companies , everything is negotiable...tell them you won't pay for housing and that you want to live in a nice community...tell them that you want a sign off bonus ...you won't believe what they will give you if you are aggressive. Good luck

    They are still one of the lowest paying agencies.

    Thanks for all the info....like i said as an RT my husband and i have had good experiences with them...now we are going to settle down for a year in the lake tahoe area so i can get a year of acute experience . Then we are off traveling again. Just my opinion , but i think everyone needs too consider what is important to them before negotiating a travel assignment...is it insurance? is it good housing? is it the highest pay rate?

    I was with AMN for two years. They were not great but tolerable. My recruiter could be very annoying. Ocasionally she directed me to call facilities that were do not calls.

    Around a year ago, they sent me to a perfectly wretched facility in Manhattan's lower east side. No traveler would ever renew there because it was that bad. Despite numerous complaints, they continue to send travelers there, telling them how great it is and never warning them about the conditions.

    They also changed how the payroll was processed. Because of the new process, you cannot call shortly after faxing, and find out whether it went through - it takes 2-4 hours to "register"...and about 50% of the time it did not "register" This is very problematic especially to those of us on nightshift on the East coast. You fax the payroll after shift on Monday AM, you go home to sleep. You get a phone call at 1400 that it needs to be refaxed before 1700. You get out of bed, run to the nearest fax, send it, go back to sleep and have to wake in another 2 hours - it still didn't "register". I had one payroll sheet that was sent once from the facility, once from my neighbor's fax, twice from kinko's and once from a mailboxes, etc before it registered. And for 6 straight monthes, had similar difficulties with payroll.

    I also caught them in a major lie in regards to my contract. And when I attempted to discuss the issue with my recruiter's supervisor....well, we aren't permitted to speak to their supervisors. So much for their concern for those of us that earn them their money.

    Then I went with another fairly large company. Much better housing, much better conditions, much better pay, much nicer recruiter, and much less paperwork.

    Yes, it does matter what is important to the individual traveler. And given AMN's poor record, I choose to do better.

    (Suzanne, is it true that their stock has been doing very poorly? Despite them being based in a state that has a major nursing shortage and mandated ratios.)

    Not sure about their stock...............
    But you should not have to dicker over pay, housing, etc. You should be able to get good insurance, not have to pay for private housing, utilities, etc. all included. And it should be the best, not something that needs to be negotiated. I would never, ever work for a company where I had to do any of that. All of it is important.............you should be given the best, not letting one suffer over the other.
