    I've worked for CrossCountry TravCorps (they merged some years ago) for seven years now. They treat me well, have decent benefits, lots of contracts in a lot of locations and have handled any issues that arose for me to my satisfaction. I can't say they are right for everyone, as needs differ, but I have no current plans to look at any other company.
    CCTV seems to have a lot of assignments, but on their website it states "shared housing" this the case or can you negotiate for private? Also, who is your recruiter? I just filled out their online app but haven't spoken to anyone yet. (I like that they have assignments in Hawaii, USVI, and California, all places I want ot go! )
    Thanks for your help!

    CCTC does have a lot of assignments. The shared housing is an issue, although more assignments are coming up with private housing as a benefit. I never shared housing though. My first couple of assignments were in small town hospitals where I was the only traveler, then I opted to pay the differential to get a private apt. They prorate the amount you pay toward private housing during the first 2 yrs, then it's free - a longevity incentive.
    Feel free to e-mail me for more specifics. My recruiter is no longer a recruiter (promoted) but continues to handle my assignments because of our long association. I'll be glad to give you contact people, but don't want to post her name here as she is no longer primarily a recruiter.

    I work for Starmed. To me they are great. I have also worked for Medstaff Inc., which was a big mistake. Starmed has great houseing or housing stipends to accept, insurance, meal allowance, milage reimb. and a ton of other great benefits. I just signed and started a contract at Duke University Hospital In North Carolina and it had a generous sign on bonus and resign bonus if you sign in a certain amt of time and it doesn't have to be w/the same place you were. Just thought I would let you know.

    Great people and an awesome, caring recruiter, and my bud!!! I highly reccomend them! I have never worked for them, nor do I recruit for them, but thanks to her I didn't take a contract, that I would have regretted!!!

    She constantly checks on me, to see how I'm doing and I haven't even filled out an app! She has invited me to her home for Thanksgiving while away from family, and extended the invite to my daughter! I just LOVE HER!

    I currently work for the Buffalo office of Supplemental Health Care. I have had no problems with having my check direct deposited, my bonus checks or housing and meal allowance. I respect the fact that everyone has had their own experiences but my experience has been very positive.

    To my understanding Supplemental has medical travel positions as well as Psychiatric. I am currently on a psychiatric travel position in NC. I have resigned now for over a year and have not had one problem with Supplemental.
    Good Luck!

    I've been with Vita Medical Staffing for almost 3 years now. They have been great to me and they have free private housing.

    I liked CCTV, but again, they need to offer private housing!!! They wouldn't excect docs to have roomates. Why should we?

    I highly recommend Cirrus Medical Staffing. Excellent recruiter. Would greatly discourage going with Vita Medical Staffing. Vita never did follow up calls to see how things were going on assignment nor did he call to arrange a new assignment. Still have not been reimbursed for license or travel and apparently because I no longer work for them I will not be reimbursed.

    I traveled with Readylink and will NOT take another assignment with them. They have lost my time sheets, lost my nursing license copy... I mean you name it, they lost it! Granted everything was great after I took the assignment, THEN my recruiter got changed and I finished out my first contract and loved the hospital and people so much (this is the ONLY reason I re-upped my contract) after i signed the 2nd contract, the only contact i have had with the company has been because I have called them.... it just isn't worth it. I am not picky or hard to get along with...but it has been a trip.
