  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. I signed my contract as an ICU float, but when I got there I found out that my "primary" floor was CMU. I was nights, and I floated a little less than the day shift travelers but I floated to every single floor in the hospital besides ED. I didn't even work in the ICU for the first 6 weeks, and maybe worked there 5 times total. Your schedule is already made for you when you arrive, and you can't switch with any other staff because they all work 8's. The orientation was terrible. They made me work a full 12h "shadowing" on the floor, day 1, when I had no access to anything. The staff is very welcoming and nice. Walnut Creek is an awesome, upscale community! Lots of cool restaurants, and shopping. I lived in Emeryville, close to the bay and the commute was 30 min or so. 07/23/2017
  • Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was private condo. Housing was located in city of Emeryville. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. none
  • I worked in the Tele Float department(s) in the hospital. Hospital is in a very nice area, 40 minute metro to downtown San Francisco. As a traveler, you are floated a lot however they really could care less about your experience at other hospitals and are unwilling to train you on any of there equipment. Staffing office is absolutely HORRIBLE to work with, don't be surprised if you are stuck working every other day or 6 days in a row. You will sit 1:1 with combative patients, be asked to work 16 hour shifts, and have no CNAs to help you on the floor most of the time. Their charge nurses, or assistant nurse managers, micromanage everything you do making it hard to do your job at times. 03/15/2017
  • Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Woodcreek Apartments. Housing was located in city of Pleasant Hill. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Beautiful landscaping, garage space, slightly older, small gym with decent sized pool. Downside: ants in apartment, mold in the bathroom, and rotted wood on outside of the apartment
  • I worked in the Tele department(s) in the hospital. Awful doesn't begin to describe my experience here. They view travelers as an invading threat. Morale is the lowest I've ever witnessed in any hospital I've worked before. In the pastt 12 years of traveling this was the worst experience I've ever had. They are just flat out mean, rude and condescending. You couldn't pay me any amount of money to go back there! 12/02/2016
  • Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Found on Craigslist . Housing was located in city of Walnut Creek. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2.
  • I worked in the telemetry department(s) in the hospital. Horrible place to work. They are VERY hostile towards travelers, not helpful, and view travelers as invaders. With the awful staff morale, they also implement dangerous practices. STAY FAR FAR away from this hospital as a traveler. 10/19/2016
  • Housing was approximately n/a mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was n/a. Housing was located in city of walnut creek. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. n/a
  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. The hospital staff in this ICU will talk about you ("the traveler") like you are there to snatch the money out of their hands. You will be floated every 4 hours and sometimes sent to the basement to "sit" for patients (I literally sat in a chair for 5 hours and then got in trouble for drinking out of my water bottle). Schedule is set before you even get there, don't bother asking to trade with regular staff, they are on 8 hour shifts so your assignment will get changed everyday at 3, then sometimes they won't have someone to cover you at 1930. Worst. Assignment. Ever. 02/06/2016
  • Housing was approximately 6 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Wood Creek. Housing was located in city of Pleasant Hill. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. The housing was awesome, but the pay was terrible. Pools, hot tubs, huge apartment with a gated back porch. Safe neighborhood for the most part except for some homeless people opening garages that I heard about.
