Has anyone heard of or dealt with Lloyd Staffing? They place nurses in mostly East Coast cities and many in NYC, which is where I want to go. I know that Cross Country is the other top-NYC placer, but I keep hearing negative things about the "evil empire" etc.

Haven't heard of LLoyd Staffing but I've been in contact with CC regarding positions on the east coast and so far so good. I haven't worked on an assignment for them yet but they appear to be very professional, courteous and prompt to answer questions when I have them.

they seem to pay low, advertise 40/hr for travel. Took them over a week to answer a simple question, so I didn't bother continuing with the process

I talked with the recruiter at Lloyd. She's a doll, very upfront. Her reputation sounds excellent, from what I've heard from other travelers who've worked with her. I guess if you're looking to really "travel" like all over the US, then CC would be good, but I definitely got a weird vibe from the CCTC recruiter. She acted like she'd never recruited anyone before. I had to push HER to talk about process. Didn't get that feeling at all with Lloyd. Lloyd specializes in East Coast placement, especially NY. the recruiter is a New Yorker, lives in NYC, and knows her NYC staffing/housing.
