    Pros

    Visted the CA location. Culture there seem be positive,empowering. CA culture need to be implement to the other location.

    Cons

    Management need to invest in sorcing tools that actually work. Stop been cheap. Recruiters are not magicians. They reduce the commission rate from 6.5 percent to 4.2. Riduclus. We are sales people. We are motivated by money. After u get 4.2 then 33 percent comes out for taxes. There is no motivation to to produce. You are going to loose top producers. There will be an exoduce of good workers.

    They only promote their friends. Fire all the good recuriters if you are of a certain race.

    Advice to Management

    Stop been cheap with sourcing tools. Pay Recuirters a reasonable commission rate or pay a higher hourly rate.

    Pros

    Excellent sales environment and culture that is fun and rewarding. Requires hard work but what sales job doesn't. They have amazing clients that make the job even more desirable

    Cons

    Can be cut throat at times
    PAY!!!!!
    Really wish they payed more, seriously just a little more hourly. If this is your first job than great, but if you really want to retain your top talent than pay them more.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up

    Pros

    Once you find your place in the company it is a great place to be! Find team members that will support you and you will grow in your career.

    Cons

    Because the company has such a young workforce, drinking is a large part of the environment for team bonding outside of work. If you are not a big drinking you probably will not be invited to happy hours with your team.
    Be careful of some Management people. If they have been there for a long time they will be protected no matter what they do and if you say something against them you will be the bad guy.

    Advice to Management

    Do outside of hours interactions that do not involve alcohol

    I worked at AMN Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    If you are lucky, you might have a great boss.
    There are some perks working for a larger company.
    Many different positions available.
    Overtime is usually available and you get nice paychecks.
    Bonus structure isn't bad, depending on what department you work in.

    Cons

    Pay is a bit low.
    HR is 100% behind the company and not employees - unless you are someone who has worked there forever and kiss up.
    If you are not bubbly and fake, you won't get as far as you want. It's all about kissing up; therefore , someone with no experience can be promoted to Manager. It's all a popularity contest.
    You work very hard and stay late, etc. and are not recognized for it.
    Some departments don't give you a lot of training and expect you to be ready to work on your own almost immediately. Too high of expectations in those departments.
    Sales reign supreme, so the company allows salespeople to treat you horribly and ignore policies.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that not everyone has a cookie cutter personality and diversity breeds out of the box thinking and ideas. Recognize employees for their hard work. Stop playing favorites. There is high turnover because hard working emplyees don't feel appreciated or supported and not heard. Stop letting salepeople walk all over employees and ignoring policies. You don't pay enough to put up with that. And the Quality Assurance Dept. has unrealistic expectations for new people and it's highly stressful. Finally, there isn't much room for growth.

    Pros

    The training program is comprehensive, fair, and effective. Sales floor management works very hard to keep the floor alive - breakfast, dinner, overtime, contests, giveaways, toasts - etc.

    Cons

    Turnover is high because a lot of your financial success if out of your hands. If a nurse you get a job for quits or is fired, you lose that potential income.

    Great on finding jobs quickly. Pretty hands off and efficient for independent therapists. Efficient web set up. Efficient to work with.

    Double check contracts, follow up on specific needs can be delayed. Mentorship not the largest strength. Recruiters can be difficult to get ahold of at times.

    I worked at AMN Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    They're very convincing during the interview process.

    Cons

    Everyone is out to prove that they are better than you, and there is a lot of time spent belittling and sabotaging new employees - even by one's own manager. Most of business happens in informal conversations, so your chances of inclusion and getting up to speed are even slimmer. Strongly recommend you keep records of contradictory information that makes you look bad, as your boss/coworkers will throw you under the bus.
    Benefits are HORRID and they should be ashamed of themselves, being a healthcare company.

    Advice to Management

    Great people are leaving in droves. Pay attention, you're burning through healthcare industry workers at an alarming rate. Take care of your vendors - they're still calling me asking for help as I'm the only one who ever paid attention to them.
