Company Evaluations by Traveling Nurses
After several requests, I have decided to offer nurses a
place to evaluate their travel company. The purpose of this list is for the
travel nurse a better look at travel companies around the country. This is an
accumulation of all nursing data acquired through our survey.
Here is the list of questions asked: (1) My recruiter made every attempt to
provide the travel assignment that I wanted? (2) was offered positions at my
preferred hospital size or trauma level? (3) The company provided adequate
health insurance? (4) The company provided health insurance within the first 30
days of employment? (5) I received adequate housing with utilities or a generous
housing stipend? (6) The company reimbursed or paid for all pre-employment
screening? (7) The company provided 401K with some company match? (8) The
company offered pay rates over $30? (9) The company offers weekly pay checks
that can be directly deposited? (10) The company offers the choice to
participate in a travelers advantage program? (11) The company paid on time and
correctly... if there was a mistake, it was quickly corrected? (12) Missed days
were either made up or up to three days were excused. The company did NOT charge
me for "assignment expenses" for days missed? (13) My continuing education,
ACLS, PALS, CPR etc... were covered as needed? (14) My recruiter was
knowledgeable about travel nursing and did not have a "used-car salesman"
attitude? (15) I felt like my recruiter was honest? (16) I felt like my
recruiter and the company stood behind me in a tough situation? (17) I felt like
a valued nurse with a name instead of just a number on the payroll? (18) I felt
like my recruiter knew my personality and my preferences for contact and took
those things into consideration... (didn't call at noon since I work nights,
knows that I'm a talker, knows that I just want to take care of business and
hang up, knows my preference is just to email)? (19) The company offered full
pay for orientation, and I was fully prepared for orientation? (20) would
recommend the company to other travelers?
Thanks again to all the traveling nurse who took time out of their busy schedule
to help me with this chart by emailing me about your experiences! If you have
NOT filled out the questionnaire, please go
HERE No evaluation from recruiters
or direct "in-house" staff will be knowingly accepted.
