Lowest paying agency.
One recruiter was rude to me and hung up the phone.
Please do not use this agency for any travel assignments.
I wish there was a selection for no star.
Contract canceled due to error
I got hired for a six week contract for a hospital to 'go live' with a new charting system. I signed a contract with nightingale about one month prior to my start date. About two weeks before I was scheduled to start, I got a call from my recruiter asking me if I could change the dates of the contract or extend my current contract for an additional six weeks. Unfortunately, I had already signed a contract to begin after that contract finished. I asked if my contract was in jeopardy of being canceled. The recruiter assured me that it would be fine.
The Friday before my contract was supposed to begin, I got a call telling me that my contract was canceled.
It was canceled because Nightingale sent me a contract for the wrong dates. This hospital only needed me for a software change-- and they weren't going to keep me if my contract wasn't for those dates. I got no apology from Nightingale. INSTEAD- They blamed me. She said "This is what you get for taking a contract with another company." and Then she said, "It's not my fault you wanted to take a contract back in California just so you can see your boyfriend." Whoa- no need to get personal here.
Let's keep it professional Nightingale. Work on getting the dates right on my contracts so I can go to work. Not that complicated.
THEY ARE CRIMINALS
THEY HOLD your pay back a week and charge you if your contract ends for any reason. They are a disgrace.
Bad company to work for.
The recruiters will call you every day 24/7 like car salesmen. The director of nursing is an arrogant, condescending, know nothing, jerk.
They have terrible insurance coverage. The recruiters will call you non-stop!
