    they get the most contracts because they have taken over most of the companies

    Pros

    Very attentive recruiters willing to listen and assist when needed, otherwise they allowed you to work independently.

    Cons

    The housing subsidy was too low. The amount did not cover the total cost of weekly hotel (2-star) expenses. I was forced to pay out of pocket which then dug into my net pay.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    The recruiter makes you believe in the beginning that you're getting a great deal.

    Cons

    My contract was cancelled because I refuse to work unpaid overtime. I was led to believe that I would be working a certain amount of hours and when I arrived at the facility that promise was broken. The facility cancelled the contract because I was unwilling to work unpaid overtime, and med travelers told me that it came off like I was complaining and that I should be more flexible and willing to work unpaid overtime. That is not how I do business nor should anybody do business like that in the United States.

    Advice to Management

    If a facility refuses to authorize or pay overtime make sure that the worker isn't subjected to working unpaid overtime. I don't think I'm in the wrong if a facility chooses to schedule me in a way that I will definitely go into overtime and then refuses to authorize paying for it. I've noticed that being a travel contractor really reduces my rights working in facilities because I'm not actually an employee of the facility and the travel company has no teeth and backing up any of the promises they make at the start of the recruitment process. I got in writing that I would work an eight hour day. When I went into overtime I said I'd be willing to do it if I were paid. But the facility won't authorize overtime so who gets to lose?? I do. Since I am a medical professional, I don't work like that. It's unethical. I also saw that the facility added extra minutes and a patient that I never saw in one of the days I worked for them. That's called Medicare fraud. But as a contract worker there's nothing I can do about it and if I even ask anything about my contract about the overtime or even look at them the wrong way, they cancel the contract right away, leaving me high and dry in a city I've traveled to. Very dirty dealings.

    I worked at MedTravelers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    AMN as a whole is not a terrible company. The CEO is pretty great actually.

    Cons

    Their turn over is high for a reason. Their expectations are unrealistic and the measurement of performance is outdated. Their leadership team gossips more than the staff and Recruiters aren't valued. Most non-leadership roles are viewed as expendable and they remind you pretty frequently. Compensation increases don't exist here and promotions are difficult to come by.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your people as expendable and focus on retaining the talent you have. You've lost considerable amounts the last two years because you figured they were easily replaced - which they weren't.

    I worked at MedTravelers full-time

    Pros

    Good atmosphere and good people for the most part.

    Cons

    Low pay. Recruiters are treated as less than Account Reps but very similar position.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that recruiters are just as important as account reps. Both are simply inside sales and it's harder to create long relationships with the travelers than it is with the clients.

    I have been working at MedTravelers full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My recruiter has been great. I appreciate her quick responses and good advice. I always feel like she is working for ME. It seems as though they do have some exclusive contracts that other companies do not have (although I have found other companies with a contract MedTravelers didn't have, but usually not). MedTravelers is part of the AMN network, so there is some advantage to being part of a larger organization. Also, they seem to be on top of the requirements for each state and facility. You don't want last minute surprises when you are a traveler, and I haven't had any so far. Lastly, another pro…that southern, Texas friendliness of everyone there. I get called "ma'am"... Often. := )

    Cons

    Like all travel companies, they are competitive with each other, and at times pressure you. However, that hasn't happened often, and I truly think the pressure was with my interest (as well as theirs) in mind.
