N/A I only worked for total med for one job assignment, not sure as to why I am having to rate them in this fashion It is a good company, however when taking travel assignments, therapists usually get the most work.

Great Staffing agency to work for. My job was just temporary Assignments. They treat me with respect and they help me to find a job much faster than any other temp agency out there in the market. Thank you.

Great company to work for. They contacted me and got my first assignment quickly. Easy to talk with recruiter I had. Able to talk to her anytime. Travel assignment with contract-permanent hire. Hired within a year at contractual facility long term
Hard time reaching staff via voice mail or direct contact for new business. No call backs
Fast pace environment. Inconsistent to no standard policies for internal employees. Constant change on a weekly basis.
Manager (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – September 30, 2018
Fast pace environment. Inconsistent to no standard policies for internal employees. Constant change on a weekly basis. Promises of help in the way of technology and human capital but nothing was brought to fruition. A lot so internal "secrets" and absolutely no transparency. Made to feel you were put through the wringer everyday.
Senior Recruiter (Remote) (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – September 26, 2018
comp plan was low. Commission plan allotted you the opportunity to make good money but many top performers often fluctuated and it appeared challenging to attain the numbers you would regularly need to make good money.
Work life balance was poor, especially given the base.
Data Entry Operator (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 9, 2018
I liked working there because the work was easy and not really stressful. I'm upset that I didn't get a chance to stay there and build my skills more. The most enjoyable part of the job was pretty much all of it because it was work that I could keep up with and understand.

Compliance Coordinator (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – May 3, 2018
The recruiters and sales support should know more than how to get people to sign a contract and be more involved in the entire process (not entirely their fault) The " have fun at work " environment gets old real quick.
Stressful environment, Constructive criticism is not even a thing here, being berated and belittled in front of your entire team is ridiculous and unprofessional, Lots of catty backstabbing going on this office up to and including managers.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – April 10, 2018
If you are willing to work hard and do not mind intense work environments, great place. The company is always willing to send you to an assignment of your choosing in which they will advocate for you and your needs.
HR Compliance Coordinator (Current Employee) – Schaumburg, IL – April 7, 2018
The atmosphere is fast-paced. Training is subpar. If you're smart, you will figure most things out on your own. There are limited advancement and compensation. Learn as much as you can to grow professionally.
Travel Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Appleton, WI – March 9, 2018
Each recruiter I've had with Totalmed began our working relationship as very ambitious and hardworking. Each one made me feel like they really wanted to get me a contract in the location I wanted to go and with the pay I desired. After some time, each one began to slack off. The first one just completely abandoned me, I felt. After that, I requested a new recruiter. My current recruiter has not been very positive or ambitious in locating a job lately. The company is sending recruiters on these "training trips" that are essentially a paid vacation. Several of the recruiters went to Costa Rica for a "work trip", but were allowed to bring family and posted several pictures of leisure activities and alcohol. I'm not sure what kind of work would be necessary in Costa Rica for a travel nursing agency that works with hospitals and nurses in the United States only. Then, many took a "training" trip to California. My recruiter is just posting photos of touristy things all over California. The company puts way too much money into these "work trips" and does not pay nurses well enough. I accidentally found out my bill rate from the hospital I currently work at, and based on that number and what I actually make, Totalmed is taking about 32% of the cut, when I was promised they would only take 20%. So my hard work is sending recruiters on vacations while I can't even get my recruiter to submit me to jobs. Also, health insurance premiums are incredibly expensive and Totalmed cuts your pay package down by about $80 a week if you take insurance, PLUS you have to pay the ridiculous premiums.more... A nurse + spouse comes out to about $850 per month for the cheaper health, vision, and dental plans. The retirement benefits are actually pretty good. Totalmed matches by 5%, but it is only of your hourly and not of the whole pay package, which I think is pretty standard in travel nursing. No PTO, as with most travel contracts. You do, however, accrue sick time in CA, but it is only your hourly rate and not the full pay package, so if you actually called in sick while working in CA you would get significantly less than you normally make and you still may be liable for the "missed shift pay adjustment", which would totally cancel out the sick pay. That sick time can only be accrued and used while on a contract in CA. You won't accrue it for any other state and you won't be able to use it if you accrued it in CA then called in sick while on contract in another state.less
