    I worked at AMN Healthcare full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Cafe and Starbucks with employee discount, gym, dry cleaning and onsite massage/chiropractor (not discounted)

    Cons

    Great onsite perks like cafe and Starbucks, but there's too much work and not enough staff to support the workload and newly acquired businesses. Many employees work overtime in order to keep up. IT is understaffed making it difficult for the entire company to work efficiently. Pay and benefits aren't great. AMN is notorious for overworking their employees, hence VERY high turnover. Please don't confuse their job openings as "growth and opportunity" rather they're replacing unhappy employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and take action. The same issues are being discussed- low pay, poor benefits, stress of workload and poor attempt at investing in the employees. Your employee base is everything. They can make or break the success of the organization. If things don't change, employees will continue to leave, recruitment will continue to turnover positions and AMN will continue to lose continuity, time, resources and money with their revolving door.

    Former Employee - Travel Nurse Recruiter in San Diego, CA

    I worked at AMN Healthcare full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    This position comes with great co-workers, cafeteria staff, and starbucks! The way AMN structures is to keep you on the phones and energize through your hours there.

    Cons

    Lets be clear, if you are an AMN recruiter, you have zero and I mean 0, job security. I've watched many hardworking recruiters, incuding myself be picked off from their desk and fired without any notification, counseling, nor warning. The fact that your goal is to progress, move forth, and establish a connection with nurses who are interested in traveling, but its not as simple when you're constantly worried that you might not have a job tomorrow. This position requires you to have no work life balance as you are to study on and off the clock and will consume you with the material that is given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I urge all management and the CEO to assess the evaluation method of the recruiter position as many individuals are fired with no warning, quarterly analysis, any notification. Many individuals have sacrificed their personal lives, money and career change to pursue this position and only to be let go a few weeks later. Please advise and inform the future candidates that they do not have job security or change your evaluation methods of your recruiters.

    I have been working at AMN Healthcare as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    My recruiter was patient with me as I was a new traveler, willing to go the extra distance to explain how being a traveling nurse worked. I was able to get 2nd contract easily with minimal time in between contracts. My recruiter worked very hard at accommodating me on where I want to work. They were always polite and professional whenever interacting with any members of the company.

    Cons

    I don't have anything negative to say at this point

    Pros

    Hmm lots of women? easy to make friends.
    Good for entry level position / recent grad's

    Cons

    Management
    Not a professional environment
    Little room for growth
    Little pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to redirect your focus to your employees. Turn over is so high in many departments- I blame this on management and partially HR. There is not enough QUALITY development happening here. It's also not the most professional environment , employees including management often belittle one another and that's the norm. I once saw a manager flip off an employee (jokingly but who does that)?
    Promotions are based on popularity rather then merit.
    Training is extremely minimal- good luck, you are on your own mentality.

    Horrible customer service, payroll is a mess

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

    Pros

    Travel, somewhat good money if payroll didn't mess up so much

    Cons

    Horrible company values and leadership. AMN who is part of MedTravelers needs a lesson in customer relations and how to properly do payroll. Many, MANY of my fellow colleagues have complained about AMN and their payroll system. I even know of someone who was told to "use a calculator" when payroll messed up their time card via a "keying error." In the end she ended up owing AMN over $4,000 due to their mistakes (mind you this was from an assignment she had finished almost 8 months ago). The way they treated her and how they went about discussing this with her was not professional at all. This is one of many cons about working here. When you do have a customer support issue (like you will) get ready to be on hold for an hour or two. This is a corporation and their main concern is about the bottom dollar.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new management in payroll, change the way people submit their time sheets to payroll, give all of your "customer service" employees a lesson in customer service. These poor people seem burnt out and or just plain rude. I think more and more people will continue to have issues with payroll. Instead of focusing their energy and the companies money on fixing their mistakes - proper training would be beneficial.

    Pros

    People are nice but fake

    Cons

    Low Pay; Upper management has absolutely NOOO idea what is going on. Some people drink the koolaid but thats because they are fresh out of college. Its pretty sad how glaring it is. Honestly executives, you guys do nothing that really matters. You are lucky the macro effects of obamacare is helping you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip. Interview people in accounting and on the front lines. You truly are pathetic.

    The cafe. A parking garage? Crappy management?

    Cons

    On a day we give thanks, I'd like to give thanks to AMN for no Christmas time off...to a three year tenured employee whose family is 3,000 miles away. Thanks for allowing me to not see my family on Christmas...for a job I can do, and asked to do remotely. And was denied. Thanks guys!
