I worked at Advantage RN full-time (More than 10 years)
I worked at ARN for 15 years. The only reason I left is to spend more time with my family and go back to school. ARN (now CCS) has a culture that feels like family. People care about each other on a personal and professional level. Leadership invests in the development of their staff and helps the employees reach their goals. While the industry is challenging, it’s also very rewarding. You can gain skills in 1 year that can take a lifetime to achieve in other companies. It’s a people first culture with great teammates and thoughtful leaders. Everyone chips in to help and everyone collectively works for the greater good. Very proud to say I was a part of an ever evolving organization.
Staffing is a high pressure industry. If making calls, providing excellent customer interactions and consultive selling isn’t in your skill set, you probably won’t enjoy the work.
Advice to Management
Keep investing in coaching and developing the team. People are the core of the business. When they are inspired for greatness, they will in turn be great.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Advantage RN (Seattle, WA) in January 2015.
Standard interview - speak to recruiter about your experience and what you are looking for and they put you in touch with the unit manager of that position. The contract is brief - 2 pages - and does not have much information on it but the company does not pay much attention to that anyway. They each have their own policies and procedures for travelers that the recruiters know nothing about. The manager said one thing but did another once the contract was signed.
