TMS is a great company to work for. I enjoyed working for them and would recommend them to anybody I know who wants to work travel contracts.......................................................................
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.

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.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – February 28, 2018
TotalMed prides itself on the experiences their travel nurses have with them. They have smaller nurse to recruiter ratios, so they can be attentive to their nurses. My first recruiter was Absolutely Wonderful. They are open and honest; and transparent about everything except bill rates. No company really divulges those though, so they are as transparent as possible. They will advocate for their nurses too.
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) – Schaumburg, IL – December 16, 2017
I believe this company would thrive if we raised salaries and commission structures. Many new grads or employees with no staffing experience join TotalMed. I believe if we took the necessary steps to compensate employees correctly, we wouldn't have such high turnover and we would be able to recruiter more seasoned sales reps and recruiters to work for our company.
Fun company culture. Young atmosphere
Low wages for the industry and location we live in. A lot of stress and pressure is put on employees, but that's staffing in general.

Friendly staff and helpful in resolving problems. Communication is excellent. This particular staffing agency gave me an excellent opportunity to enter the insurance industry and I am grateful for my time within this company.
Very competitive travel healthcare agency that protects it's travelers
PT, DPT (Former Employee) – Mount Pleasant, WI – October 21, 2017
A very competitive travel healthcare agency that protects it's travelers. They do very well with getting great contracts for their travelers and their recruiters take great care of their travelers. The agency makes the extra effort to get to know me as a traveler and as a friend.
Human Resource Intern (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – October 4, 2017
My position at TotalMed was an internship. They were wonderful in aiding me to get my feet wet in multiple different areas from recruiting, on-boarding, data entry, health and wellness program, new hire orientation, as well as accounting experience-in fact I was offered a position within the accounting team at TotalMed.
Claims Specialist (Current Employee) – Schaumburg, IL – April 22, 2017
Unorganized, recruiters are not on the same accord, all have different polices and procedures for employees doing same job function..No PTO, but contract states PTO is to be given. Pay is way below other staffing agencies at the same job site.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – March 7, 2017
A typical day at TotalMed was performing hundreds of calls a day and researching candidates to hire. I have learned that nurses are not paid enough for what they do. Management at Totalmed is terrible, with that being said there are a few that should not be in those positions. The work culture was one of the best I have ever had.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – November 9, 2016
I worked as a travel CNA in WI, mainly going to nursing homes and CBRF's. Some of the places are dumps, disgusting and barely staffed for CNA's. Mainly the Atrium of Post Acute Care nursing homes and Brookdale, they were buying out places that were bad already. That only hit rock bottom when these bigger companies from out of state took over.
You make only $12 an hour and $13 on the weekends, which is not enough. They do not reimburse for mileage or gas, which is not smart cause than who wants to travel far?
Recruiters are okay, some will work with you others wont.
The only part I liked about it was knowing that some places I didn't have to come back if I didn't want to.
Traveling to different facilities.
Low pay, no mileage reimbursement, facilities are so under staffed.

If you are a Healthcare worker and are considering signing with them, look elsewhere. Everyone there seems to be very young, inexperienced and unprofessional. They call when you are sleeping (hello!) and then become very irritated when you do not immediately phone them back. When do they think 3rd shifters sleep?
They seem to have little knowledge of how hospitals function, why healthcare workers go into traveling and even worse...the answer to basic questions like payroll, benefits, etc.
The pay is the worse I have encountered in my years of traveling. You will make much more and work with professional people who know what's up if you go elsewhere. Cannot recommend.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – March 11, 2016
This company is very good in the industry however they like you to work 50 hours a week but pay you for 40. I would work 50 hours a week and didn't see a whole lot of success with the hard work and effort I initially put in.
