Recruiters--do they EVER return phone calls or emails?

  1. Maybe it's just me, but I am looking for a job and I have had questions about some of the positions. Either the description is poorly written and not clear, or they don't specify what shift, etc. Anyhow, I call the "recruiter contact" and no one ever answers the phone. I leave messages, I email, I email, I leave messages. Never, ever, does anyone get back to me. Is this standard operating procedure or is it just me? Should I just be trying to get through to NMs for questions?

    No, this is definitely NOT normal for nurse recruiters. Rather than try to contact a Nurse Manager, I would suggest that you make a call - or in-person visit to the facility's HR department and explain what is happening. There may be some sort of an issue with the recruiter that is causing this disconnect. The recruiter reports to HR. They can help you.
