I have been traveling for 10 years with numerous companies. I took an assignment with MSO for the high paying job they offered. I was so impressed, I stayed with them now for the last 3 years exclusively. As travelers, we are all told not to discuss our income with other travelers, but inevitably the conversation happens. I am always pleased to see what I make is more than competitive. My contracts fit my demands well. My benefits are great and very affordable plus I have direct contact with my recruiter 24/7. Not an answering machine, service or an on-call person. I have never regretted my decision to go with them. I got hurt on a job last year and they were behind me 100%.
Very supportive recruiters and management, Excellent healthcare plan
low limit on Dental insurance, No accrued vacation time
Company has one of the best cultures I have ever been apart of. Learned many aspects within the recruitment process. Management is extremely helpful and willing to help anyone. Additionally, other staff members will drop their work to help you and fully explain something you may not know.
Medical Staffing Options has gone through some change and hasn't always been organized and thorough with insurance requests and paying me properly on time. Otherwise, they have been a good company to work for. The hardest part of my contracted position has been working with psychiatric patients as this has not been an area that I have worked in since nursing school. I can handle the medical/surgical and telemetry aspects of the job, but the psych issues have definitely been a challenge. My coworkers are awesome and we seem to work well together. Finally, my manager at the hospital has been very understanding with the loss of my father and the circumstances prior to his passing.
Completed several travel contracts with MSO until was injured on the job. What I have learned is that the way they pay is wrong. Do not under any circumstances work for a company that bases the contract on "tax-free" compensation. This is the company's justification in paying around minimum wage for WC. I enjoyed the facility I was working for and my recruiter was great but compensation is misleading. Stick to standard travel contracts.

Recruiters are in contact a lot to make sure you know they are working to get you a contract to make sure that you are happy with the contract you are on. If you ever have a problem, they want you call them right away so they can fix it. They want you to be happy at work and they will work to make sure you are, even if they have to go up the corporate ladder to do it. Sometimes it takes awhile to find a contract if you have a limited specialty or a a limited area where you want to travel.
benefits right away, great pay, great office staff
