    Pros

    You are valuable as long as you can accept assignments without complaints.

    Cons

    They basically consider you as a money machine. I was hired as a PRN employee, however, they expected me to work a full time schedule without benefits, I am not allowed to be sick nor my family, although I gave them my availability. Anyway, I feel very disappointed to have been treated the way they treated me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should have their personnel's back who are working hard out there to put money in their pocket. I know it's a business, however, try to stand behind good employees so they know someone is there for them and they are valuable. Good employees are hard to come by.

    I worked at Supplemental Health Care as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast steady employment as a clinical nurse when needed and gives you the necessary income and time to find what you would like to do next. Often times you can get hired on by the place where you have been assigned after the end of the contract.

    Cons

    Contracted nursing position for 13 week assignments. When contract is over you move on to another location. Their health insurance in 2012 was costly for a family and had a high deductible. You are locked in for the length of the contract and if you break the contract for another job you can loose a substantial amount of the per deim compensation. Job locations are often times out of town and require overnight hotel stays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Longer term assignments would be better.

    Pros

    There are no pros. This company is very disorganized and LAZY

    Cons

    The recruiting staff do not tell you about all of your clinical assignment expenses up front and once you sign a contract you are locked in. It is $2400.00 to break your contract once you have signed. You have to pay for your own housing, parking, and expenses. All other agencies provide housing or give a stipend to cover ALL of your expenses with very little coming out of your pocket. Other agencies cover all of your expenses when you travel, to include a great salary. Supplemental is the lowest paying travel nurse agency out there. You have to have money just to go make money if you are dealing with this company, because you are stuck with EVERYTHING.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie to nurses to make a buck. Nurses work hard and don't deserve to be treated like dollar signs for your benefit.

    I worked at Supplemental Health Care

    Pros

    I always felt motivated in my position, good incentives. Decent work/life balance.

    Cons

    POOR MANAGEMENT. This company is like being back in high school. Upper management will NOT take your concerns seriously, they will act like they care but are really talking behind your back. Micromanagement is the leading cause to high turnover rates; however, they seem to believe it's the best way to treat staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Micromanagement leads to poor productivity and high turnover rates. It is no way to motivate staff. If you want high numbers, find better managers to lead teams.
