    hi there

    just curious to see if anyone has cancelled there contracts with agencies such as ogp?? or have you ever considered it?????? would it be worth paying the $8000:uhoh21:

    I resigned from the hopsital that sponsored me because of various reasons - the top one being that I was doing 5 nights a week and getting split nights off ALL THE time and I was at loggerheads with my Hubby constantly becuase I was tired. Originally I was under the impression I was going to be on 12 hours shifts....If I had them I would still be there now as I loved working there and the Nursing Staff were great and the pt's but Management were something else.......

    I resigned (I didnt come over with an Agency) and had to pay $5000 back - but didnt in the end but this is way too long a story and very complicated for here...suffice to say I only ended up paying half....and if I decided to take this matter further I would probrably get it all back - but as I say it isnt really for discussion here....sorry:wink2:

    If you are truly unhappy and can pay the $8000 back then go for it...I was realtively happy that I got a sign on bonus at the hospital I work at now so that came in handy if I needed to pay the other place off...but watch out for the tax man here too!!!:wink2:
