About Boston, MA
Walk the Freedom Trail the first time you visit Boston and you'll quickly get a sense of this coastal city's revolutionary spirit and history. But make sure you also explore some of Boston's fine museums (try the Isabella Stewart Gardner, featuring masterpieces displayed in their collector's mansion) and old neighborhoods (like the North End, Boston's Little Italy). You can't claim to have experienced real Boston culture, though, until you've watched a Red Sox game from the bleachers.

I would never recommend anyone working for them. Recruiters are liars, send you out on an assignment and leave you hanging on your own. Will not answer their phone and asked to speak with recruiter supervisor and got the same response, would not answer his phone. Total scumbags!!
This is my first travel assignment. I have heard horror stories! Of course I was guarded going in. My recruiter, Ellen, was straight forward, had an interview within 24hrs WITH an acceptance! My pay that was explained has never been a single penny short of what was told. Priyanka, compliance officer had me on the ball from day one. Nothing gets forgotten with her in office! They have set a high standard for any other company in my future endeavors. But then again, I have no reason to leave at this point. Thank you Supplemental Healthcare for making my first assignment as it should be!
They are the only company I have worked with, now for almost 2 years. Also, I have only worked in 1 hospital that whole time. So consider that with my review. I talked with about 8 companies before going with them. Overall it seems they offered the best benefits/pay ratio of the companies I talked with. There was no negotiation with the pay rate, not sure if others do. I can't say anything about the housing, I haven't used it. I don't really communicate with them more than I have to, but when I do I generally get a quick response and one time I did have to use their on call person after hours and they got back to me pretty quick. My recruiter, Eric, is easy going and has been straight with me the whole time. I haven't felt lied to, or pushed into anything. I have not had any issues with the paychecks being short or late. They have called me every time I forgot to send in my time sheet. They have an app to submit time sheets and it works easily. I also really like their website, they list most of their jobs with a decent amount of detail so you can look at jobs before contacting them. The benefits seem really great. I am a young single person who doesn't use medication or go to the Dr though so I don't really know how good the insurance is compared to others. My insurance is $6 per week. I took that over the free day 1 insurance because they offer a health savings account with it which is like a flex spending account but it never expires and after $1000 it gains interest. They match $25 per week. 401K is 100% match for the first 3% then 50% for the next 3%. $1,000 completion bonus or you can increase your hourly pay to get it over the length of the contract. Then they have a point system based on hours you get points and you can get stuff from a website with the points. The website has thousands of items, household, kitchen, jewelry, travel, apple products, electronics, tools, etc. Probably around $100 worth of points for a 13 week assignment. They do offer travel reimbursement too but I haven't qualified for it. They also send random knick knacks, bonus points, gas cards as well. They pay for an online website where you can get CEUs for a whole number of things. They also reimburse your certificates and other job requirements ACLS, BLS, TNCC etc.
I have never been lied to or mistreated more than I have with Supplemental. They are the worst agency going. It is unfortunate because they seem to be nation wide and have no reason to do their nurses wrong. I di not recommend them AT ALL but if you do GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING and still expect them to lie!
