  • They forget to deposit your checks at times but will pay the next week. They do not communicate on any type of pay issue, They make mistakes in HR with getting you W2 correct. I am now having to get an extension just to file my taxes as the W2 says I worked in CA but I never worked in CA, Shows I paid for 401K but I never received info on the 401K, I never received my insurance cards until I decided to quit. Take your chances if you must but I give you fair warning of Payroll as it cost me because now Im left getting a lawyer to get them to fix what they messed up just to file my tax 03/13/2022
  • They forgot to pay me several times having to cut a check the next week, They filed my W2 as working in CA and had not worked in CA and still waiting on a fix of the W2 just to be able to file my taxes. These people are very unreliable. Beware 03/13/2022
  • Deceptive, didn’t fully disclose rural area of assignment, housing had no internet and horrible reception for all phone services, has been telling nurses they were putting internet in, apartment was shabby, bed was a camping COT with a twin mattress on top of it, facility was very old and shabby which can’t be helped but staff wasn’t wearing masks….when agency was alerted were very lackadaisical about it!!! Only paying time and quarter on overtime, stating hospital only pays that amount! 09/25/2021

  • Have you tried to wear a pair of pants that feels so right, not too tight nor loose? Fits just right and you're comfortable. That's how I feel with USSI. Their contract per se says to me that they have my back. They are pro nurses not to what they can get from you. 04/27/2019

Overall, I would recommend him and USSI. Thanks for the hard work! 12/17/2018

  • Extremely satisfied with how Paula Harrington. Honest and Knowledgeable 12/15/2018
  • First off I would like to note that although I have 5 years experience working in SPD I have never once explored working as a traveler. As of today I have been offered a travel position in EXACTLY the city I wanted, at a rate higher than I would have expected, on a shift schedule that is as ideal as I could ask for. With a doubt I have to credit Eva Julian of USSI for helping me get a chance at this phenomenal opportunity. Not only did she work hard to get me in the running for this position, she was with me every step of the way and then some. Not to mention thanks to Eva's tireless educating I feel as prepared for this adventure as I could possibly be. Thank you Eva, for all your patience and guidance while working with me. - Alexander 12/14/2018

  • I am working with Logan Frank at USSI for my first travel nurse assignment. He is very knowledgeable and always goes out of his way to make sure I have the resources / support to be comfortable and successful! USSI is a smaller company which offers individualized support and opportunities. Logan and the entire USSI made the on-boarding process as painless as possible and continue to be available for questions or concerns. Paychecks arrive without issue, and USSI offers a variety of day 1 benefits at a reasonable cost. I definitely recommend this company! 12/07/2018

  • This is just my first assignment with this agency but so far so good. My recruiter Paula Harrington is by far the best recruiter I have had to date. She has been doing this for many years and it shows. She is on top of everything. If I have a question she has the answer quickly. She is very direct and honest and I have talked with her more with this assignment so far than my last recruiter did all 13 weeks. I can tell if I ever have an issue she will be on top of it.

  • I have nothing but great things to say about this company my recruiter Gloria has treated me like family. 08/16/2017
  • USSI is a great company to travel with. Gloria Ojeda is the best Recruiter I have had the pleasure of working with. She stands out amongst all of the recruiters I have spoken to during my traveling career. I spoke with many other recruiters that did not follow through with what they promised. I felt like just another number to other recruiters. Fortunately, I found Gloria! She ALWAYS follows through and does what she says she is going to do. She has excellent communication skills and is a pleasure to work with! She takes great care of her Travel nurses. I have recommended her to all of my nurse friends that are thinking about traveling. 08/16/2017
  • Friendly, diligent, trustworthy people to work with 08/15/2017
  • I would avoid using Gloria Ojeda as a recruiter or this company after finishing my contract and seeing how this company operates. Numerous issues with paycheck not containing my full pay that was only corrected after I double checked my pay stubs and found errors. Was requested to submit multiple correction forms to receive correct on call pay to only still be paid at a lower rate than was stated and again, was only caught by me. Was quoted a call back rate twice by Gloria of 109.00 per hour and after working those hours was only paid time and a half and told by her manager that rate was only paid for over 36 hours, information never passed on to me by Gloria. Her only response was that she told me what she knew at the time and was sorry. I still haven't been paid for 12 hours of on call time I worked in the beginning of June that I submitted a correction form for. Avoid this company and recruiter at all cost unless you want to be constantly running behind them to ensure you're being paid correctly. I've worked with more than a few companies and recruiters, the behavior from this group was unprofessional, sloppy and not worth the headache. 08/04/2017
  • Adam is one of the best recruiters. USSI keeps me coming back. Retention feels good! 07/06/2017

  • I have been a travel nurse for 5 years now. I have to say that USSI is one of the best agencies I have ever worked for. My recruiter Sarah and the whole team have worked together to make this a great experience. They really appreciate their nurses and show true compassion and caring. Sarah has always been quick at responding to any question I have. This has been the best travel assignment yet. I also want to say thank you for the wonderful gifts they gave for nurses appreciation week. USSI is 5 star all the way. 03/31/2017
