Med Travelers was another contract company that placed me in many contracts all over the east and west coast. Med Travelers always made an effort to find work when I needed a placement as soon as possible.
Found me jobs as quick as possible
changed recruiters on me twice in my time with them

Physical Therapist Assistant (Former Employee) – Washington State – November 10, 2017
One of the worst travel companies in terms of actual pay. They pay less than a regular staff Therapy position with a stable company. Attempt to book travel positions that pay less than other offers in field. Was offered 20% more pay for exact same travel contract with another travel company.
Poor pay, lack of knowledge in healthcare field, can’t keep current staff
I am a new grad in, halfway into my first assignment with MedTravelers. Everything is just as good as I expected. My recruiter is fantastic! Be aware, though, if you are a new grad, you are expected to jump right in and start with a full caseload right from the start. I was confident in myself and my abilities, but it is still a little intimidating at first. I encourage anyone who is considering travel to give MedTravelers a call.
Great pay. Travel opportunities. New grad job opportunities.

Thank you for sharing your experience at Med Travelers. We value our travelers and strive to provide a positive experience across every aspect of your assignment, including compensation.

OTR (Former Employee) – Colorado – November 23, 2016
I had a recruiter describe a job offer to me over phone call and text. I told him I wanted to accept the position over text and asked for him to send me the contract. A few hours later when I read the contract and researched the area, it was not agreeable to me and I refused to sign. He tried to say that my text message was a binding contract and I would never find therapy work again if I did not accept the position. He sent me increasingly threatening messages for a week until I asked a friend in the travel therapy industry to call and sort it out. Then he had the gall to say that her calling was an indication that my career was in in shambles. Well I have have many job offers since and he was wrong and manipulative. I regret phrasing a text message with such certainty without reading the contract in full, but I had no idea he would be so mean.
I am very sorry to hear about your experience. Med Travelers truly values our travelers and we strive to provide a positive and customer service-focused experience. I would like to discuss your experience in more detail so that I can resolve it and ensure future clinicians do not have similar issues. I hope you will please contact me directly at David.Schmiesing@medtravelers.com or (469) 524-1506 x 5529. -David Schmiesing, Division Vice Present, Med Travelers

Good place to work
Speech Language Pathologist (Former Employee) – Illinois, Florida – August 20, 2016
I was employed as a travel Speech/Language Pathologist for 3 different assignments with Med Travelers. My recruiter was very good at communicating with me and the assignments were all positive experiences. I would recommend this company to anyone in the travel therapy industry.
Its a traveling job that you will meet a wide range of different people from different part of the country. The best part of the job is you are not grounded and committed to one facility and you can enjoy a new city and their surrounding.
Med Travelers is an agency that sends you usually out of state to various hospitals. It's hard to say what a typical day was like at so many places, but usually the pace was steady. You kept busy. What I liked least is rarely did they have assignments close to my home, and when my children were in school I couldn't travel. What I liked the most is that I love to travel, and my family and I got a chance to see various locations of the country that we otherwise might not have. I also made some really great friends, even though some of the assignments were short. Often times I thought about relocating, but my kids would have killed me. They love our permanent home. The supervisor on one of the assignments vacations in Chicago sometimes, and my family always meets up with hers. A supervisor at another location cross trained me in echoes. That was priceless. Just about every co worker I had was very friendly and helpful. Some knew we were strangers in town, and often invited us to different events.
Overall wonderful company with comittment to their travelers.
PTA (Former Employee) – Solomons, MD – November 4, 2013
I have traveled with Med. Travelers on several occ. and with them I have gotten to work IP, OP and Skilled which I have really enjoyed and able to maintain a good balance of knowledge with each setting. I enjoy the compatibility that you have working with different management, my co-workers and the pt.'s, learning something new each day and being proud at the end of the day that I able to help someone get better ( not just physically, but mentally as well sometimes.) I am proud that I am a PTA and I love what I do. Med Travelers thru my recruiter knows me as a person, my likes and dislikes, that's what made them a good company to work for.
COTA/L (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – May 21, 2013
A day at work consists of implementing treatment plan for patients based on an evaluation set in place by the OTR. I have learned time management and how to get the best out of my patients. The hardest part of the day is when patients are unavailable but I work through it and manage my time. The best part of the job is the progress that I get to see my patients make. The facility is pretty good.
I worked in various settings for Med Travelers and very much enjoyed it. They were able to work with me to get the compensation I needed and find jobs where I was interested in traveling. I would recommend them to anyone looking to work in traveling therapy.
get payed to see the country, weekly direct deposit makes for easy budgeting.
travel between jobs only reimbursed to $500 though i believe this is pretty standard, sometimes finding your next travel assignment comes down to the wire (with all traveling)
