ASSIGNMENT COORDINATOR (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 21, 2016
I enjoy my job at CompHealth. I do not feel like I can move out of my current position though. The people are nice and the environment is very social. I really do not have anything bad to say about the company.
Benefits, Work/Life balance.
Unable to move into different positions within the company.
Family Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee) – New Mexico – October 15, 2016
My recruiter has stayed in touch with me regularly, checking to see if there have been any issues arise, and intervening as needed, if anything had come up. They are a great company. The work load in my assignments, thus far, has been good, not too busy, but also not boring. The company managers intervene as needed with contracted companies.
The hardest part of being a locum tenens provider is getting accustomed to new places without the physical presence of at least one person you already know, but this is part of what makes it great, also. You get to interact with new people routinely, and hone your skills at making new friends and acquaintances.
Medical Staffing Consultant (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 27, 2012
Overall an outstanding place to work. The health insurance is more expensive than I have paid while working for other companies of similar size. They truly want everyone to succeed since everyone is bonuses are based on the performance of their individual teams. Because of the this the management staff is invested in each persons success.
leadership values the contributions of each person, there is a great deal of praise for a job well done.
Licensing Coordinator I (Former Employee) – 6440 S Millrock Drive – June 9, 2015
Comphealth was a great place to work. they provided a great culture, and a great work life balance. The management was amazing, and their executive team did all they could to provide their employees with the tools needed to properly do their job.
Recruiter Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – FT. Lauderdale, FL – October 29, 2014
Lots of activities to get involved in; fun workplace and lots of great benefits. Typical day at work very busy and sometimes stressful. Co-workers pleasant to work with. Hardest part of the job is time management due to overwhelming work load. Most enjoyable part of the job being rewarded for a job well done.
free gas or publix gift cards; extra time off; free lunches sometimes.
OTR/L, CHT,CLT (Former Employee) – Whidbey Island, WA – January 6, 2016
My recruiter worked hard finding me new jobs all over the country. Weekly contact to see how I was doing and to ascertain if there were any needs that I had. The most difficult part of being a traveling therapist can be the actual move. The most enjoyable part of the job is that everyone is really glad to see you, in that the position has been filled.
PHYSICAL THERAPIST (Former Employee) – numeous locations across the country – March 5, 2013
I worked for CompHealth for several years and chose them initally due to the benefits and time that the recruiter was willing to spend answering my many questions. When working for a traveling healthcare company, you need to know the company is reliable in numerous ways. You need your living arrangements to be safe and comfortable, the job to be acceptable, etc. In my years, I ran into problems with flooded apartments on arrival, supervisors at the job trying to work me 60-70 hrs per week, etc. EVERY time I contacted CompHealth with issues, someone was immediately on top of the problem and helping me deal with it. They have a representative for the therapist and a separate one for the facility who then get together to help resolve any issues. I worked with 3 different schedulers and thought highly of all 3. The pay may not be as high as at some other companies - but the backup and assistance you receive from the company is well worth the difference in pay.
Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 5, 2014
Work assignments come at you from the phone, internal office computer messaging, face to face with other workers, team leads and managers. Yikes! The telephone looked like a control dash board of an airplane. Okay, I exaggerate a little. This was a difficult job for me. Highly stressful.
Good work schedule, good benefits, rewards for achievements
Physician Recruiter (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 30, 2014
Something that separate CompHealth from many other employer's was the culture, the people were amazing. Having a fun environment that allowed us to be adults without the micro managing really was the key to being successful. All the managers had an open door policy and was always available if needed.
Healthcare Recruiter (Current Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – October 23, 2014
Worked with hospitals, outpatient clinics, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, private practices, and many other medical facilities throughout the country to help them find talented physical and occupational therapists for full-time, permanent positions
We have a new Manager and I feel she bit off a little more than she could chew, she is very young as well. A lot of Micro Managing, lots of meetings that could be avoided, they take a lot of time for me to make my dials, and follow up to close sales.
The hardest part of the job is convincing Therapist to move to another state to take the job. We could only offer jobs in Rural areas as big metropolitan areas do not need recruiters like us as they are over saturated with Therapist.
It is also a 1hour and 30 minute commute for me each way
They took care of everything I had a place across from the beach, paid travel expense Housing and great medical benefits, The hospital was a great place to work at the people were some of the nicest I've worked withshort
Radiation Therapist (Locum) (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 2, 2014
I was sent to Arizona for 10 weeks and I lived it. Comphealth had all of the details under control and made the experience a great one. I worked with some very , very nice people, made friends with one patient that I am still friends with and fell in love with the area. Leaving this assignment was the hardest.
Physician (Former Employee) – Washington, DC area – July 22, 2014
I finished residency, and wasn't sure what to do next. Did locum assignments for a year.
Pros with locum - traveled to different locations, made wonderful friends, saw how different health facilities worked
Pros with CompHealth - very efficient with paperwork, pay checks deposited regularly, responsive to travel crises (broken down cars, change of airports), happy with accommodations, friendly staff
Cons with locum - some sites are terrible with temporary physicians (I.e., poor orientation, onerous call schedule). Also, work is not steady (May have a month off before getting an assignment.).
Cons with CompHealth - mixed feelings about the physician recruiter. Was aggressive in getting jobs for me, but also was aggressive in pushing jobs that I did not want or that made me uncomfortable. My locum experiences were positive, until against my gut feelings, I accepted one ill-fitting job. However, these tactics must be industry-wide, as recruiters from other companies have treated me the same way. Advice - check worksite out before agreeing to the contract. If your intuition tells you to check out, get out!
Excellent administration; responsive to problems
Remember their job placement is more important than your job needs
