Staffing, A/P, A/R, Training, Admin Asst (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 17, 2015
When I first started, the hours were the hardest part of my job. After I became the administrative assistant, the hours got better and so did my pay. However, then I started to get picked on by the woman who used to be my direct supervisor. My work environment became very stressful and I started to hate going to work. There were days that I went home crying. The environment became too hard for me to even go to work.
It was a good place to work and learn the ins and outs of a staffing company. Casual work environment. Recruited travel nurses on a daily basis. Learned how to present them in the best light so as to win the hospital contract.
had a great boss who would bring us breakfast burritos weekly
some of the paperwork was redundant; duplicated same information
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – November 7, 2014
I worked as an ER RN. I never had problems getting work. Management was always willing to help in any way they could. I enjoyed working with those in the office. The hardest part of the job was while working agency, you may be cancelled, but that is part of the job. The best part of the job is working with many different people.

Great work atmosphere. Wonderful coworkers. Coworkers are always there to help you when you run into a problem. The executives and managers do not micromanage you or the work that you do as long as you get your job done.
The best registry in the world. They totally supported me in some of the most scariest, uncomfortable situations that you can be confronted with
Registry LVN (Former Employee) – Encino, CA – November 17, 2013
I called in on a daily bases and was able to go to UCLA Resnick most of the time but I was flexible and went to many other facilities and hospital throughout Southern California. I was experienced in many areas from pediatrics to geriatrics, from acute to chronic. The last 5 years I spent in psychiatric services for children, adolescents and adults. I learned that every patient, client and person has a psychiatric baseline that can be disrupted and corrupted by trauma, chemicals, personal problems, financial and family issues. The hardest part of the job was being the temporary nurse that had to fit in and adapt to the environment immediately. Most of the facilities I became familiar with after coming multiple times. Some of the areas that I drove through and the communities were scary; I kept vigilant while making the best of the situation. I went to and assignment South East Los Angeles, they were desperate for help. I found the hospital, it was a house that was converted and built in the early 1900's. It had one hallway open with 10 rooms; the other side was closed and served as a storage area for old beds and equipment. After receiving report and putting my feelings of uneasiness aside, I proceeded to make rounds to see my patients. One of my patients in a wheel chair was not on the unit. I was told that he went to the corner gas station to pan handle money to buy cigarettes. The charge nurse that evening said she would discharge him as AWOL. I told her that I would go and get the patient and bring him back even though I was uncomfortable in that neighborhood. I saw themore... wheel chair from afar and approach him by introducing myself as the nurse as I pushed him back to the hospital. He proudly showed me his cigarettes and the money he made from pan handling. I have worked the longest shift, in the hardest areas of patient care such as organ transplants to the most violent of psychotic patients’ situations. The most enjoyable part of the job is the diversity of people, their cultures and being there to listen to their stories.less
flexible hours, monetary incentives for working 200 hours, the opportunity to see other environments supporting healthcare services.
each hospital or facility had dfferent rules, some no breaks, staff can't leave to purchase food or leave the campus, not so nice nurses and administrators.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – CA – May 31, 2013
A TYPICAL DAY AT WORK FOR ME IS WHEN ITS BUSY, IT MAKES YOU TIRED. I'VE LEARNED NOT TO TAKE STRESS SO HARD. JUST TRY TO RELAX, EVEN IF YOU FALL BEHIND IN YOUR PAPER WORK. LEARN HOW TO MANAGE YOUR DAY, BY COMPLETING YOUR WORK ON TIME. SOME CO-WORKERS ARE GREAT TO WORK WITH, AND OTHER CO-WORKERS ARE NOT. THE HARDEST PART OF THE JOB IS CLEANING HEAVY PATIENTS. THE MOST ENJOYABLE PART OF THE JOB IS GOING HOME, AND EVERY BODY IS SATISFIED.
