    I have been working at AMN Healthcare full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    My recruiter, Melanie Douglas-Major, and support staff Sarah Beck and Natalie Ritchie (and many others) always so helpful if I had questions or concerns with my current assignment. And many thanks to Ellen Lavin for enduring my tantrums at the end of my last contract. I have been a travel RN for less than a year, but thanks to "my team", I plan on doing it until I retire! Great way to see the country and work at the same time. Always meeting new people and learning new things that wouldn't have been possible if I had continued at my old job.

    Cons

    If you are new to traveling as a dialysis nurse, make sure you ask how big their program is, how many shifts of patients are expected each day, and how many facilities you will have to go to. My big mistake was going to Dallas as my very first assignment, and the adjustment almost drove me crazy! They had 28 contracts, and I ended up seeing every one of them! Also, everyone thinks travelers make big bucks, and we can (in overtime) but generally speaking we make the same as the full time employees at the facilities, not AMN's fault, the facility decides how much they're willing to pay for the assignment. Also, don't believe other agencies that tell you Obamacare is affordable, because it isn't. And lastly, we don't get paid sick or vacation days; don't miss the sick days because I'm never sick, but vacation between assignments means you have to put money away to cover the week without pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would help if AMN arranged and paid for BLS and ACLS training. Hard to find and schedule the classes. Consider some paid time off after a certain number of assignments as well.

    I have been working at AMN Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have worked with AMN for four years. I am still very happy with how easy it is to contact everyone if I have any questions or concerns. The high level of professionalism and concern for my satisfaction is unlike anything I have seen with other companies. My recruiter Erin McConnell has worked hard to find me contracts and take care of all of my needs. She is a kind person and I am lucky to be able to work for her.

    Cons

    I have yet to encounter a concern that hasn't been taken care of.

    I have been working at AMN Healthcare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good company for about a year or two, some people stay longer. Management is good and training is usually extensive, although a lot of information doesn't pertain to a lot of job titles. Company values are good and they do try. Cafe downstairs is great with a Starbucks and I think all team members are nice. Good place to learn basics of business.

    Cons

    The turnover rate for employees is very high. It's very easy to stay complacent. Time off is hard to get because you need to have your accounts covered. Raises and promotions are far and few between, I think they could do better on promoting from within. Quality Services floor is kind of a hard place to work, there is not a lot to motivate you to work except for the pay, which is not very good. They just implemented a merit based system but haven't seen any benefits yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a more uplifting environment for employees, especially QS where there is little motivation to work hard.

    I worked at AMN Healthcare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not much to add here. Worst climate to work in IT ever!

    Cons

    IT management lacks any tact or ture vision - Its like working for a General Contractor. How long can you hang your hat on "In the old days, I use to go to Steve's house and work on his PC. Thats how I got this job..." The IT Operations folks are dysfunctional.

    Good company to start with

    I have been working at AMN Healthcare

    Pros

    training is extensive, name brand recognition in the market place, small company feel with a team first atmosphere, travel and expenses paid by company

    Cons

    technology and methodology antiquated, clients have been burned by failed searches, rigidity in process and a good number of the recruiters are lazy and work "good searches"...too many layers of management, no company cc for travel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    bring technology to 2010...focus less on selling mail and look at other ways to market....revise the fee structure and make the recruiters work to fill searches instead of picking and choosing. I do not think that a 1 / 4 ratio of success is enough to beat your chest about.

    Pros

    AMN supports quality of life as well as building your career. Peer partnerships make it a great place to work!

    Cons

    At times, slow to strategically respond to staffing needs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to middle management and front line staff members; they know what is happening every day and can give great insight to moving the business forward and remaining relevant and competitive.

    I have been working at AMN Healthcare full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Everyone that I work with is hard working, focused, and, just plain nice. My current position is challenging but, being able to resolve issues that directly impact our clinicians lives is extremely rewarding.

    Cons

    I don't feel I've been with the company long enough to have anything of significance to say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My on-boarding was flawless. My training was great. Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at AMN Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I am approaching my 3 year mark with AMN Healthcare and could not be happier. I started here right before I turned 23. I have my BS degree and had previous sales and work experience. You walk in and see smiles on everyone's faces. People are genuinely happy working here and you can sense that in the energy and overall atmosphere in the building. We have amazing accommodations including Starbucks and a grill for breakfast and lunch. I have been able to interact with the CEO Susan Salka, who is one of the nicest and most motivating individuals I have ever come across. I have mentors that have helped me develop in to the business professional and person I am today. I really do not know what I would do without them. The company loves to reward us for our hard work and thanks us all throughout the year. I can go on and on about how wonderful this company is because I truly believe they are one of the best corporations and communities out there.

    Cons

    I chose to live a bit away so traffic can be a bit of a problem but that was a personal decision.
