Which company are you with that you got a rental car with them, do they pay for it in full? Do most companies pay for rental cars? ive only traveled in NY where i havent needed a car!

    I've been traveling for 3 1/2 years, some assignments with American Mobile...and I say run as fast as you can in the opposite direction! My recruiter with them was awesome, but has since moved on, and I'm currently argueing with them about a pet deposit they don't want to give back to me. Let me just say in a nutshell.....AMN will nickle and dime you to death if your not careful! RN Network was pretty good...and I'm with Intelistaff right now and really liking them....I'm getting paid alot better now, too! Best of luck to you!
    :roll

    I am hoping to get a recommendation on a good agency. I am hoping to be on my way to LA in a month. I will drive my car over there but I am hoping to get a private housing with utilities paid, cable, travel reimbursement, and at least make $36 per hour. An agency that provides OT as a double pay is a big plus. Thanks in advance!

    When I first read your title, I was surprised. If you haven't heard of American Mobile then you haven't done your homework in travel nursing. They are in the top three of the largest travel agencies.
    They have both ups and downs. There pay isn't always the best but they do have a huge variety of assignments. You have to be willing to stick to your plan and get what you need, don't be intimidated by the recruiter who I believe tries to rush you sometimes. Say no, and say I want more. My experience with them has been good but I insist on certain standards and did say no on more than one occasion.

    You need to look at the date on the orginal post, it was April 2005. I am sure Jaycrue has heard of AMN by now and has ran the other direction, as this post is has been going on for almost a year. Plus by asking questions here jaycrue HAS been doing his/her homework by asking the pro/cons before persuing to work for them. Smart to ask first, since I worked for them for 2 years and didn't make crap. I wish I would have asked before selling my skills for $25/hr.

    I travel with On Assignment mainly, but my next assignment is with Trustaff since I wanted to take 1 assignment in my tax home state of MO each year to help off set my taxes.

    They are still one of the lowest paying agencies.
    Suzanne4,
    Would you please send me a message with the travel companies you recommend? I am strongly considering travel nursing. I appreciate any input you can give me. Thanks so much!

    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
    I agree! Ive been with American Mobile off and on for 3 years now and I have negotiated something extra on EVERY assignment without my hourly rate being lowered. Every contract I get rental car reimbursement, and have them pay for my washer/dryer and tv. One assignment I complained and even got a garage for my car's security after there were several break ins in the neighborhood.
    It is silly that you have to play hardball with them just to get decent treatment, but if you play the negotiation game with them I promise you'll come out ahead!
