Las Vegas for 24.00

  1. I could make more than this for working directly for hte the hospital. of course I wouldn't get a apartment with it though. Has anyone traveled to Vegas for more or less? I work in M/S.

    I finished the 13 weeks in Vegas. I did not like it all because of the hospital. I LOVED the city. Everything about it was wonderful except for the hospital. I heard that all the hospitals in Vegas had the same awful attitude so I won't be going back until I'm assured things have changed.

    I'd definitely pick my season. Summer is a good 120 degrees for days. Winter gets cold so plan on Spring or Fall for temp/climate.

    Shop this carefully. Also, you may want to find your own housing and take the stipend instead.

    The main reason that agencies "get by" with paying these ridiculously low rates to travelers is because "the travelers" take them!! I do NOT leave home for anything less than 35 an hour (With housing and travel seperate). Some agencies advertise 26 an hour- Well, here come the "new travelers" who jump on this "big money"............these new travelers take the low money and then wonder why they are not making more. Examples.......In the past I have been at facilities where "new travelers" make 26-29 an hour with basically the same benefits(diff. companies) but I make 35 plus and hour...........Why?...........because I will not accept those low wages.!!
