Administrative Assistant/Staffing Coordinator (Current Employee), Springfield, VA – August 25, 2015
Productive and challenging work environment. Excellent direct leadership, excellent co workers. Very numbers and metrics driven. Fast paced and stressful, new and unexpected obstacles each day. My commute has been a big issue for me.
Cons: lie, don't pay you, don't pay you what you are worth
Title says it all. Seems to be the new thing with agencies that staff NYC hospitals. Don't work for them if you are going to do a Travel Assignment. You will be left stranded. They claim not to give you – more... a contract till after you finish orientation. Then, if you do get it they decide to change it around. They say get paid on Wednesday and then no Friday.
If you live in the city and want gone paid half your rate three weeks later. Well be like the rest of he nurses here and put up with it. I am not! Hospitals are using you and you are falling for it. – less
CNA (Current Employee), Gainesville, FL – September 12, 2014
Pros: pay, open door policy, family setting
Cons: i haven't found any wrong yet
my job is very good job if you like working with old people. You never know what you are going to get in to that day until it happen you have to be on your toes. Co-worker can make you have a good day – more... your they can really upset your day if they are not doing things in the right way. the most i like about my job is the people thing they lived and bring to the table with them. But, over all most about my job is knowing that i did a good job that day. – less
MEDICAL STAFFING NETWORK IS A TEMPORARY STAFFING AGENCY
Medical Assistant (Former Employee), Lansing – September 3, 2014
Pros: good pay, good agency
Cons: temp work is really stressful
I enjoyed working with Kristina in the Lansing office very much. She was very helpful. Working as a temp in an office and I faced many challenges, one was the lack of respect from fellow co-workers . I – more... was placed in this job to help with a short staffing issue. I received very little training and very little co opportion, from management or staff, with a few exceptions. I over came these issues and gave the best patient care to my patients, which is really what its about. I will never understand when its your job to help the staff why they are so rude. – less
Nurse Assistant (Former Employee), Tulsa, OK – August 15, 2014
Cons: not knowing what to expect when arrive for shift/ cancellations
Working with this company allowed me to be very flexible in my scheduling. A typical day at work would be working at a Tulsa area hospital that could either be fast pace or slow pace. I got a chance to – more... meet different people/clients. This allowed me to get the experience I needed in the different fields of nursing. My coworkers were very enjoyable to work with because they were team players. The hardest part of the job was sometimes coming on a shift where you didn't know a patient and didn't receive any information about that patient also watching the patient go through the death process. The most enjoyable part of the job was the flexibility in the scheduling. – less
Overall a great place to work if you have a varied schedule or need extra hours.
LPN (Current Employee), Toledo, OH – August 13, 2014
Best part of the job: The staff is very friendly and the pay is competitive. Hours are flexible.
Hardest part of the job: No guaranteed hours and shifts can be cancelled with little to no notice, though the staff proactively attempts to keep this to a minimum. Cancellations are a part of the "deal" when working agency, though.
