What is your position?
If you're a nurse, you'll need a year experience before most agencies will hire you.
If you're a CNA, you can most likely get a job with no experience.
The nice thing about staffing agencies is the flexibility, you can make your own schedule, and they do pay more.
I worked for a staffing agency a month before I landed a job at a hospital (as a CNA), and I kind of felt like I was being thrown to the wolves. One day I would be working on the med/surg floor at Salt Lake Regional, the next I was sitting for a neuro patient at the U, and it was a little intimidating and frustrating because every unit is different so I always felt lost.
Also, not everyone was so helpful and friendly to the agency CNA...so it was a little hard.
That was just my experience though.
