    I worked at MedTravelers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working as traveler is great if you like to move a lot. Its good money.

    Cons

    They entire payroll section....(for lack of a better word) is a disaster. Many many therapists I know are having issues with their payroll department. One person even said someone in payroll told her to "use a calculator" to figure out how payroll made a "keying error" and overpaid her over $4,000! If your going to work here you will need a magnifying glass to review your paycheck and be ready to find errors every single pay check. If you want to talk to someone in payroll about it be prepared to stay on hold for over an hour....its kind of like the credit card company customer service. The frustration of dealing with payroll is not worth working at this place. They don't know how to treat their employees and need a lesson on customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Consider changing the way you do payroll and getting rid of some of your supervisors that treat employees horrible and that don't have a clue what their doing.. Give your entire payroll section a lesson on customer service. Do the wait times for payroll (during the day when employees are suppose to be working with patients) have to be over an hour!? Hire more skilled customer service people.

    Pros

    Your recruiters were knowledgable and friendly..but clubstaffing had me travrling for twelve years

    Cons

    No work ever available when i was looking!

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive with specialized radiology positions..they really need the backup you can provide. They re usually one tech departments and experience burnout more than ie. Xray!!

    I have been working at MedTravelers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My recruiter has been great. I appreciate her quick responses and good advice. I always feel like she is working for ME. It seems as though they do have some exclusive contracts that other companies do not have (although I have found other companies with a contract MedTravelers didn't have, but usually not). MedTravelers is part of the AMN network, so there is some advantage to being part of a larger organization. Also, they seem to be on top of the requirements for each state and facility. You don't want last minute surprises when you are a traveler, and I haven't had any so far. Lastly, another pro…that southern, Texas friendliness of everyone there. I get called "ma'am"... Often. := )

    Cons

    Like all travel companies, they are competitive with each other, and at times pressure you. However, that hasn't happened often, and I truly think the pressure was with my interest (as well as theirs) in mind.

    I worked at MedTravelers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I met with my supervisor regularly and I think that really helped me to do improve my performance. Good pay. Casual Fridays with a chance to leave early.

    Cons

    I was on the administrative side and noticed a great deal of turnover. Things were always changing. A lot of work needed for a promotion but the increase in pay was small.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on morale to reduce turnover.

    Pros

    *Great commission structure *Great training *Great support on tools needed to do the job *Great rewards for achieving goals

    Cons

    *Promoted based on "good old boy" system *Benefits expensive for a division of large public company (AMN Healthcare) *Huge turnover - if people make it 8 months, that's a life time *Production varies with economy but goals are not adjusted to allow for that

    Advice to Management

    Don't promote people because they fit in with the "guys" literally. Promote on ability and track record.
