No work life balance but you can make a lot of $$$
Group Manager (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – April 3, 2017
If you are literally only concerned about your own advancement, money, and are able to not talk to anyone but your manager then you will succeed here. If you are a team player, enjoy helping others, and want to enjoy your life, do not apply.
Young staff which makes for a fun environment
poor management, overall culture is toxic, they demote/fire people left and right
Senior Recruiter- Hospitalist (Former Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – March 30, 2017
Enjoyed my time working for this staffing company. Learned a lot of great skills from talented people. Grateful for working here. The work environment is exciting and the company is very well set up and organized in the way it conducts business with its employees and clients.
Fullfillment Specialist (Former Employee) – Hardwick, MA – March 14, 2017
Work can be stressful. You are vonstasntly being hounded at to be on the phone and call people ALL day long, several times sometime until they answer the phone. I learned that I don't have it in my heart to harass people all day long with phone calls about jobs they won't even want. The hardest part of the job was having to try and sell a job to someone who didn't even want it, and to be sitting down all day. The most enjoyable part of the job was that you didn't have to work on the weekends.
No weekends or holidays.
Long day, short breaks and not being able to walk around.
Associate Credentialer (Former Employee) – Hardwick, MA – January 30, 2017
Worked with sales staff on new job listings to get Doctors, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants credentialed and/or licensed to be able to work their locum tenen job. It was very fast paced and detail orientated. One of the most gratifying feelings at this job was finishing a really tough assignment and having the Nurse Practitioner or Doctor start their job.
Nurse Practitioner, Locum Tenen (Current Employee) – Peabody, MA – December 15, 2016
Barton Associated has skillful employees to secure locum contracts. Barton is NOT a placement agency and their buy out fees are higher than industry standard. The flip side is that they can secure skillful providers and match them with top paying agencies for contract work. Providers for Barton are independent contractors not employees, which means providers get a 1099 IRS form, no taxes are take out and providers will have to pay higher tax rate as an IC. All of this is in the contract providers sign during on boarding, but not explained well up front. Barton has secured me with excellent opportunities and exceptional pay. They communicate well and often depending on the provider rep; my rep was attentive to my needs.
Associate Account Manager (Current Employee) – Peabody, MA – October 27, 2016
All I can say is, RUN FOR THE HILLS! toxic environment where even management pick and choose their favorites and act like hypocrites when they say they are professionals, but yet, spend most of the day throwing stuff at each other.
ping pong table to escape the everyday struggles of this job
Fun and young work environment with great managers!
Account Development Manager (Former Employee) – Worcester, MA – September 26, 2016
The office is full of young energetic employees! Everyone is great and we always have a good time at work. The managers were more like coaches than bosses. They were always striving to do anything you needed them to do to help you succeed.
The only con is that this was a sales job and you were judged based on how much money you can make for the company. If you weren't giving enough effort or making enough money you will get let go. But the great thing is that before they let you go they will always try to change your position within the company. If you don't like sales they will switch you to an admin role. They are always striving to help you as long as you put the effort into the job. Overall great environment and a great sales job. My only issue is that I am not a sales person.
fun enviroment, you are very independent at this position. It is very long hours of cold calling with no immediate satisfaction. Must build a database of providers willing to leave their home and work at jobs across the country. Very difficult opportunities to sell. There is a whole lot of cold calling involved as well.
ability to make alot of money via commission and base pay
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – May 16, 2016
A typical day drags on and it feels like you are literally there for forever. Cold calling job that can become extremely frustrating. Expected to be there at 7 am and stay pass 5. If you leave at 5 you will be given dirty looks from management. They do not understand job work and life balance at all. No sense of job security here either. No breaks given through out the day either besides lunch break.
Long Hours, Micro managed, Terrible pay and benefits
I really have enjoyed my time with Barton Associates. The culture is great, it's a very young company and there a good number of benefits. The Austin, TX office has really grown and being a part of it since day 1 has been very rewarding.
