I don't know if they still do.What agency provides you with linens, dishes, etc. other than On Assignment? That's not a typical perk for travel!

They are huge and have off shoots like Medical Express. I also know someone who uses Intellistaff travel and I have never heard of the apartments being furnished without full kitchen acoutrements. I would be livid!
Jul 1, '05Joined: May '05; Posts: 21I wanted to know more about Interstaff Inc. Has anyone heard of them? not Intelistaff. Are they any good and do they actually say and do what they are meant to do for nurses. Or do they shaft you around? Cheers

Must be quite a bit!Nursing Innovations out of Memphis does also. They also include a rental car, etc. Similar perks to On Assignment. And they also fly you to the assignment.

They are a nurse recruitment agency speacilaizing in placing of foreign nurses in the US.I wanted to know more about Interstaff Inc. Has anyone heard of them? not Intelistaff.

Agency here means per diem work................
I suggest that you post this on the UK site.
Oct 16, '05Joined: Oct '05; Posts: 19i think they bill in the range of $72-78 at least thats what one on the managers in rhode island told me, but when you look at the whole picture after paying for your apt, insurance and taxes plus your pay there cut might be like $10-19 dollars per hour.
Oct 31, '05Joined: Oct '05; Posts: 4; Likes: 1i have to admit, k-force is poor about getting back with their messages.
I have worked 10 weeks for them and have had to ***** to get insurance cards, and even time sheets. I expect more from anyone who makes money from my labor. on assignment in cinci was pretty good though. good assignment and good pay. called 1-2 x per week. My contact got smart with me, I called and told them I wanted a different recruiter, he was great and kept better contact than the first.
make them work for the pay
don't take the first offer they give
tell then they are working for you until the contract is signed.
any company worth working for will prove it!
Nov 20, '05Joined: Nov '05; Posts: 6; Likes: 1I don't know much about Kforce, but I am working with InteliStaf in the Seattle area. I have been with them for approx. 13 months. They have contracts with all the major hospitals in the area. The staffers have always done a good job of keeping me as busy as I want to be. I have learned a few things about how to get the best shifts from my agency:
1) I call them regulary. This ensures that I am fresh in there mind.
2) I update my availability regularly. If it changes, I make sure to let them know.
3) I try to stay flexible and open to short notice shifts, if available.
4) I call about 2 weeks before the new month. I find if I do this, it is much easier to get booked through the whole next month. It must be about the time when the facilities start scheduling for the upcoming month.
By incorporating these things, I have been very happy and satisfied with my InteliStaf experience.
In addition, InteliStaf is becoming JHACO certified. I think this will make InteliStaf a desirable choice for all hospitals in the future.
Jan 28, '06Occupation: Director of Nursing Joined: Jan '06; Posts: 21I presently work for Favorite Nurses, I think they are great. They really seem to have a grip on what's going on and I mean it's all the time. I always have plenty of options and if I'm cancel at one site they usually seem ready with another assignment. I also do some work for MSN - not going well, just feels like their fumbling around. Have worked for KForce, apparently I wasn't the only one that left. From what I understand, they lost many of their primary contracts in the Cleveland area because of miscommunication and misscheduling. Intellistaff, not worth the effort. Cathy, RN, BSN - Cleveland
