we just got a new contract in our state. they are taking over the mental health portion of corrections from cms. the company is mental health management and they are out of va. we have never heard of them until recently and i am wondering if any of you have worked for them or currently work for them and how you like them? so far, they have been super nice and they seem to have so much better benefits. but i told my work site that i would check with my fellow nurses to see what you all had to say about them. you can send a private message if you like, i just need some feedback. also, let me know what state you are from and roughly what you make as an rn? thanks. :balloons:

Hello, I actually just got hired at a local state psychiatric hospital/prison, and the company that hired me is no longer going to be the vendor...and it will be this MHM company as of 7/01. I found their benefits, from what were described...to be not as good as what the original company offered. I'll let you know how this new company is......I am brand new to correctional nursing.

Well, I just got my offer letter from them yesterday and I have to say, I am really dissappointed greatly. I was hired by the vendor that had the contract before mhm took over.....I was hired by the 1st company to work 24 hours at $25.94/hr with full benefits (state benefits) + shift diff, and this new vendor who takes over July 1st and their offer was 24 hours, $26.71/hr + shift diff and no benefits at all, plus get forced to stay mandatory shifts for coverage and probably alot from what I have heard. I was more dissappointed than mad...... I work per diem in home care making $6.00 an hour more with no benefits as well. Alot of people are angry..and I can understand why. I even called the new co, so I'd be a fool to take less pay for the same & they said no one with less than 30 hours gets benefits at all. I applied strictly because of the great benefits..and now this new company does this..... I am trying to transfer to another area that has the old company still but I will only be per diem in that case. I know......if I am doing per diem, then what's the matter.....well that way if a permanent position opens up for 24 hours I will apply for it.......I don't want to do more than 24 hours in one place...I have another job also..I know it's only a 6 hour difference BUT they only do 8 hour shifts..so that's 4 days....they are even giving huge bonuses on top of regular pay to get people to work this weekend.
