Why should I work with a staffing firm?
Typically staffing firm employees earn more money than with traditional employment. There are also many other employment advantages, like being in control of your own schedule, and working as often or as infrequently as you want. You also can gain clinical experience in a variety of settings. Another nice advantage is that you can pick up per diem shifts to supplement a full-time job.
Why should I work with ATC Healthcare services rather than directly for a medical facility?
In short, the answer is flexibility. When you work with ATC Healthcare Services, you have the option to work per diem shifts, take a local contract that’s four weeks or more, or explore the country with a travel assignment. Plus, you get to choose when and where you want to work. And as an ATC Healthcare Associate, you’ll earn some of the highest pay rates in the industry and receive excellent benefits. So the question becomes, why would you want to work with anyone else?
What kind of experience do I need to be an effective temporary employee?
To succeed as a temporary employee, you must have the experience, maturity and discipline to step into an unfamiliar job and setting, immediately assume a workload, and develop relationships with the other healthcare professionals in your assigned facility. In addition, ATC Healthcare Services will require that you have a specified number of years of experience in your chosen field since the company you’re assigned to is already short-staffed and supervision may be minimal.
What kind of job training does ATC Healthcare services provide?
The training you receive will vary based on the role you seek. ATC prides itself on encouraging ongoing education and job training of our employees. Be sure to contact one of our recruiters to discuss what job training options are available for you in the office with which you are seeking employment.
Will I get the assignments I want?
You will be offered every assignment that matches your qualifications, and you can decide whether you want to accept the assignment.
Can I pick up shifts to fit my schedule?
Yes. ATC Healthcare places nurses, physicians, and other healthcare professionals on contract, temp-to-perm, per-diem, travel, and direct hire assignments that vary in location, time, and responsibilities.
Can I work full time?
You can work as little or as much as you want. However, once you commit to an assignment, you are requested to fulfill the terms of that assignment.
Does ATC Healthcare Services offer per diem shifts, local contracts and travel assignments for their employees?
We offer employees per diem, local contracts and travel contracts. Whether you need a flexible schedule to accommodate your busy life or want the lifestyle that a travel assignment can offer, we have the job options just for you.
What about overtime and holiday pay?
We pay overtime if you work more than 40 hours in one week. Working on holidays usually earns overtime pay, although some facilities have limitations on holiday pay.
What shifts are available?
Our shifts vary depending on the facility. The majority of our shifts are 8, 10, or 12 hours.
What happens if I don’t like my assignment?
You do not have to accept the assignment. We will call you back with other needs. We do ask that once you commit to an assignment that you fulfill the terms of that assignment, including staying for the duration of your shift or contract.
What quality assurance measures does ATC healthcare follow?
ATC Healthcare Services maintains current, complete personnel files for all employees that meet state, federal, OSHA and JCAHO requirements. If you need additional information about an employee prior to or during a survey, we can provide the requested information promptly.
