Mission: At Barton Associates, we lead the industry in onsite and virtual healthcare staffing solutions. Our mission is to equip healthcare providers and organizations with the resources necessary to supply world-class care, improve the lives of their patients, and thrive.
About the Company
Founded in 2001, Barton Associates is a leading national locum tenens physician, dentist, physician assistant, and nurse practitioner staffing and recruiting firm in the $3.9 billion locum tenens market. Barton Associates has the experience, resources, and scale needed to efficiently match talented locum tenens healthcare professionals with great healthcare companies and facilities across the United States in a wide variety of practice areas.Thanks to the company’s world-class training program, industry-leading incentive plan, and promote-from-within culture, Barton has grown to employ more than 600 sales and support staff, with more growth on the horizon.
The locum tenens industry was started in the early 1970’s in Utah to help physicians provide medical health to rural areas of the country. The model proved successful and locum tenens agencies began placing temporary healthcare providers in hospitals private practices, and companies all over the country.
Today, this industry continues to rapidly grow. The Affordable Care Act and the aging population have increased demand for medical services. So much so that in 2013, 90% of healthcare organizations used a locum tenens provider at some point during the year to maintain their staffing levels.
At the same time, tens of thousands of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, dentists, and others work locum tenens assignments, taking advantage of the freedom, flexibility, and earning potential that comes with being an independent locum tenens provider.
With so much interest and demand for locum tenens providers, now is a great time to be a part of this rapidly growing industry!

I have been working at Barton Associates full-time (More than 3 years)
This is a fantastic career path if you're driven & motivated by money. The position is very challenging, especially when you're just starting out. You need to be willing to put in a LOT of effort and be very resilient.
The thing I love about the company most is how well you're rewarded for your effort. You are both financially compensated, rewarded in contests like our club excellence trips, and recognized by management.
Barton gives you the opportunity to significantly increase your income year over year. It's rare to find a company where you see people in their mid-20's making $80-100k/year or more. However, at Barton it happens for those who work hard but it's just that - hard work, and not everyone is prepared to do that.
You will see turnover, but that's the name of the game in an entry level sales position. If you're competitive, you won't see this as a con!
If you aren't competitive and motivated by money, this may not be the job for you.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Barton Associates (West Palm Beach, FL) in May 2018.
The interview was with the branch manager. He was pretty aggressive with his questions and demeanor. I wasn't sure how the interview went because he was not talkative and very, very direct. Either the guy was having a bad day, or his interview tactic is to be aggressive and confrontational to see how you respond. Expect open-ended questions, etc.
