    Pros

    Great pay! Full benefits! They go above and beyond in your travel needs. They even asked me if I had large pets like horses I had to travel with. They could accommodate me with a condo with a stable!

    Cons

    Can't really find any? Maybe the can make their contracts longer I suppose.

    I have been working at Cross Country Travcorps full-time

    Pros

    Its fun! You staff nurses all over the country. You do get recognized for the great work you do. Gift cards for filling top jobs is a plus! Commission is uncapped. Somewhat flexible hours. Office is nice!

    Cons

    Base pay isn't the greatest for the stress involved. Keeping a good associate is challenging. Can be stressful for some people. Tough to get high commission amounts. Not much room to grow.

    Pros

    Free coffee/tea/hot chocolate. One hour lunch breaks. Friendly and helpful Co-workers.

    Cons

    Stressful working environment, no room for growth, a long commute and a $30K base, was just not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of accelerated training programs. It doesn't work well for those who have no healthcare background.

    I worked at Cross Country Travcorps full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good opportunity to travel and have a secure job, mostly health care. Housing is secure and clean, recruiters call back and fix any problems right away. Phone support available 24 hours a day.

    Cons

    I was not informed about a sign on bonus ever, I learned from another traveler and it was "too late" when I asked about it. Pay is not that good, they roll housing deduction into pay so your weekly check is smaller than you would think. Things can be confusing to a first timer.

    Pros

    This company is one of the larger travel companies and therefore has many contracts available.

    Cons

    A bad recruiter can ruin your experience. Make sure you find a recruiter you click with and one that actually listens to you. Also in my experience their paperwork department is a mess. I would end up turning in documents 2/3 times before they claimed to have received them.

    I worked at Cross Country Travcorps full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cross Country has many convenient services that they bring into the company to facilitate a busy working mother's lifestyle. You can genuinely feel that the company cares about their employees and will do what they can to help them. This means helping if you need additional training, working around disruptive family schedules and helping grow your role within the company if you show true initiative. It is a very casual company to work for and you grow into the Cross Country family atmosphere over time.

    Cons

    The recruitment field is VERY stressful. Clients expect everything to be done yesterday for them so it can get extremely overwhelming to keep up with all the work. The company demands a very critical eye for detail. There is great room for error when you first begin with the company which can result in the loss of clients. Morale can get low due to the fluctuations of business and the pressure from management.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the use of technology for our clients. The recruitment process can be improved upon dramatically with a well-structured online documentation process for the clients to access and manage directly. We need to get ahead of the competition in this respect.

    Pros

    Excellent training, great work environment and free coffee/hot chocolate! Whats not to love!

    Cons

    The only downside I can come up with is that it did not pay as much as similar jobs in the area. However, the work environment more than made up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe increase the hourly rate?
