    Too Many False Promises and No Company Success

    Pros

    Water cooler. The Planet Group of companies consists of a few other divisions. You work alongside recruiters/sales reps in other division and lot of them are cool people. A lot of the nursing/contractors you interact with are also cool and very personable. Easy to get hired and maintain the job there. (Currently while the doors are still open)

    Cons

    There’s a lot. All the problems stem from deception. Just look at the reviews. It’s no coincidence there are 8 5-star reviews from 3/26/18-4/18/18. All done from the instruction of the Planet Group Leadership team. When talking to one of few employees of Planet Healthcare they will try to sell you on career growth, opportunities within the company, and earning potential. All of those are limited because there isn’t anyone there who understands the healthcare staffing business or invests in developing that business. This is not an exaggeration either. There are reasons the Healthcare Division started in 2015 and has decreased in size net profit since then. I believe there might be 5-7 employees left at this point. No one sells or brings in new business. For example, at one point the recruiting team compiled a list of hundreds of leads for hiring managers gather from references of potential travel nurse candidates. Seemingly easy contacts and warm calls. The Sales Rep/Manager called 0. So yes, there is someone in this role, but this person might have opened 2-3 small contracts in his 3+ years there. A lifelong friendship with one of the Planet Group executives keeps this sales rep employed. The rest of the of the business comes from an MSP (contract opened by a previous sales rep) which hundreds of other agencies also have access to the same hospitals and jobs at the same time. So, with minimal to no effort being put forth to find other avenues of business there are only so many jobs you can work on or find for the nurses you seek to employ. Also, the territory for these roles is very restrictive. It is mostly limited to just certain hospitals in Ohio. This makes it increasingly difficult to retain good nurses or pitch them on opportunities with Planet Healthcare because those opportunities are limited. For the nurses, Planet Healthcare really has no distinct competitive advantages over other nurse/staffing companies that set it apart. For you as the recruiter it limits how much you can make because you are limited on what you can offer. One thing the company really tries to do is sell you on moving into a leadership role. Or giving you more responsibility. But it doesn’t take long to realize these are fake promises. With the lack of company success there aren’t options to move into. If you try to develop business, they get mad on you for “stepping on someone else’s toes”. However, that person won’t do it. If you use the MSP and place nurses at local Ohio hospitals your credit will be diminished. In other words, you are stuck and there isn’t anywhere else to go or nothing more to be gained from this dead-end job/company.
