    Pros

    Laid back work environment. Pleasant local staff

    Cons

    Salary and position caps. Senior management- No Boys Allowed.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your support staff and give them more autonomy.

    Pros

    Recruiter was nice and helpful.

    Office supervisor in Phoenix was not a nice person. He automatically sided with the client during a dispute before talking to me.

    Pros

    They provide great training for office staff.

    Cons

    After the aggressive training, the pressure is ON to perform and deliver. And if you do not deliver, they are quick to down size and move you out asap in no time.

    Advice to Management

    It takes time for recruiters and staffing managers to establish a "book of business", be a little patient for placements. Placements are controlled by the candidate and the client, recruiters can only recommend and make the match. But not all will accept the work because the agency pay is not comparable to the hospitals direct hire and pay.

    Pros

    Weekly pay
    mileage reimbursement
    I cannot think of any others at this time besides being paid weekly.
    Overall dishonest agency in my opinion

    Cons

    Dishonest about assignments -duration/expectations/pay
    Very aggressive to get paperwork/other items completed. I received an average of three calls a day for items I had ALREADY turned in. If I did not answer I would receive several texts, even while I was on assignment
    Assignment did not last and was not intended to last by the client, although SHC said there was a possibility to become permanent that would be based on my job performance - this is the only reason I took the assignment, I ended up training the permanent employee who had less education and experience than I had (although I was given a hard time and offered less pay due to my credentials)

    This is a sales job to them. That's it. I regret taking an assignment with this agency.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest with candidates and allow them to choose for themselves. I understand that you may get bonuses for placing people, but you then move on with placing the next person. Honesty is important.

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    Longer term assignments would be better.
