When it comes to length of assignment, once again, you're the boss. We will make you aware of all the open positions for which you qualify, and then you choose the location and the length of contract that best suits your personal interest and availability.

4. Will I be guaranteed a forty-hour workweek?
Each assignment that we offer is considered full-time. The exact number of hours per week varies by facility. However, for the sake of budgeting, most assignments are between 36 and 40 hours per week. Some facilities will even offer overtime.
5. What types of assignments are available?
We have a myriad of assignments from which to choose. We have assignments nationwide, from large hospitals associated with teaching institutions, to more rural settings where you can enjoy a little more slower paced lifestyle. You name it and we have it, if we don't have it , , , we can get it!
6. What happens once I have selected an assignment?
Once you have selected a specific assignment, your tempsPLUS-Medical Coordinator will work directly with you and the facility that you have selected so that they have an opportunity to review your background and areas of expertise. Your tempsPLUS-Medical Coordinator will arrange an over-the telephone interview between you and the hiring supervisor at the facility you have selected. This is a good time for you to have a prepared list of questions concerning the unit where you will be working, as well as any other questions that will make you feel more comfortable and prepared to take on your new assignment. Once everyone feels comfortable we take steps to get you on your way.
7. How do I get to my assignment?
We have found that it is probably best for you to drive to your new assignment. That way when you arrive, you are more mobile and you have the opportunity to explore and better enjoy your new surroundings. If you prefer to leave your car at home, that is fine too. Whatever method of transportation that you choose, tempsPLUS-Medical will help you by providing a generous travel allowance.
8. What type of housing can I expect when I arrive?
  Our housing is comfortable and conveniently located so that you will be able to get to and from work with a minimal amount of commuting time. Our traveling staff typically share a well-appointed two-bedroom apartment with another traveler who is working in the same area. tempsPLUS makes sure that each apartment is fully furnished and all rent and utilities are paid by tempsPLUS.
   
9. Can I bring a friend or family member with me?
  Absolutely, we have found that traveling with another healthcare professional, your spouse or a good friend allows you to more fully enjoy your stay. Please feel free to discuss this option with your tempsPLUS-Medical Staffing Coordinator.
