Pros: meals are sometimes furnished or available at a low cost, the areas i stay at can be entertaining, and the pay scale is good.
Cons: contract work is lonely at times, someone is needed to watch your house, and i sometimes feel travelers don't connect well if they haven't a specialty.
I enjoy working at different settings, it helps keep me in the know of new or different techniques. During a typical day I clock in, print out my schedule, and start work. I may need to question it, so I seek out the DOR or PT. Most of the management has been okay, but some have been distant or hard to pin down after the initial orientation. My co-workers – more... have been nice to me and helpful when I'm uncertain what I need to do or the best way to handle a situation if I don't know all the channels. The hardest part of a travel job is getting to know the people I work with and their personalities, to blend in the best and not having family or my friends around after work. The most enjoyable part is getting the chance to learn new techniques or machinery from someone who specializes in it. – less
