-you sit at a desk for 8 hours besides a 1 hour lunch -you feel like you're a robot working in a cave all day -management does not want to build a boding relationship with their staff. they just add more to your plate

First, we want to thank you for your valuable feedback. While we acknowledge that sitting at a desk is a necessary evil in order to accomplish our work every day, the last thing we want you, or anyone else, to feel is unappreciated or like you’re a “..robot working in a cave.” We’ve taken your review to heart and are taking steps to prevent this impression in the future.”

My recruiter was amazing. She always had good destination choices to make. If it wasn't for my family needs I would still be working for them. I miss the opportunity to travel.

I have worked for Jackson Nursing a long time. I have been thru 3 name/management changes. It is definately NOT the company it started out being. They don't really care about their nurses. It's all about the money they make. They no longer take care of their nurses. For instance, they sent everyone for nurses week A SINGLE DRIED OUT SUGAR COOKIE. The recruiters give different packages to different nurses. A brand new nurse with the Co, and 5 years experience was making more than anyone else on the floor with alot more experience and time with the Co. Maybe the recruiters keep some for themselves. We make less than we did 15 years ago. I will be going with a new co on my next assignment. If you are sick a day, get this, you actually have to PAY THEM. THAT'S RIGHT, instead of getting a sick day, you actually owe them money.
No appreciation, no recognitions, average benefits (that you pay for), no sick days, very low overtime pay, no vacation, no perks from this failing company.

This is by and large a failing company at this time. If a nurse is cancelled, the company demands a $1500 fee no matter the reason, no matter who does the cancelling. They do not protect their nurses and honestly have left nurses to find their own way home. This is a company in trouble. They do not care about the nurses and once they are cancelled, turn their backs on them and stop all communication. It seems to be a predatory "business" and nurses are the victims. From other postings, it seems they may have been a bit more reputable a few years ago, but not now. I have never witnessed anything like this with any other travel company--there are many out there that would never treat nurses like this.

Many years ago, this company operated under the name of "Travel Nurse Solutions" and, by legend, was a very thriving staffing firm for travel nurses. Recruiters were supposedly top-notch and consultant benefits were very lucrative.
Unfortunately, the company experienced a period of stagnant growth, during which the recruiter force became very weak and less aggressive. Marketing campaigns were virtually non-existent, and the company abandoned the practice of being personally involved with its consultants, leaving most of them feeling as though they were forgotten. With all of that, the company also failed to stay abreast on the offerings of its competitors and ultimately lost complete sight of its focus on retention (both clients and consultants).
I hired on several months after the then-new CEO, so all of the above is merely hear-say (although, the company's past dominance in the market was very obvious due to the internal corporate artifacts still lingering about). This new CEO was very impressive, full of enthusiasm and rigor and great ideas, and took every opportunity to motivate the staff. He didn't focus only on the production staff, but the entire company as a whole. He introduced reform and also led the way to rebranding the company to what became "Jackson Nurse Professionals". He also brought back aggressive marketing by hiring on an experienced professional specializing in marketing and PR, and began systematically weeding out the stagnant links in the production chain and replacing them with fresh employees eager to prove themselves and move up.
I was hiredmore... as part of the reform process. The CEO recognized the fact that the company's web presence was in virtual shambles and in need of a complete overhaul, and funds were being leaked due to outdated internal accounting and CRM software.
Unfortunately, the new CEO was brought in just a bit too late; and as a result; it was decided that JNP would be merged with its sister company (Jackson Therapy Partners) and relocated to Orlando, FL. This corporate decision resulted in the elimination of approximately 90% of the company's employees, myself included.less

Very friendly and effecient recruiters. Staff works hard to assure employees and facility are pleased. I work nights and so far the staff members I've worked with have been great. I really enjoyed my last assignment, especially my co-workers.
weekly pay and insurance
expensive health care for family, salary not very competitive in southern states

This company is very easy to work with and for. They are upfront with their information about each prospective assignment. They work hard to prepare you for advertising yourself to prospective employers. Their compensation package is very adequate and they work for you once you except an assignment and are hired.
