I have worked off and on for this company the past 5 years but only locally and for per-diem jobs until this past August 2010. I had a few complaints about recruiters that were not very good, assignments not being reliable, but nothing major until I left the continental United States. They have the primary contract for the hospital on the island of St. Thomas in the USVI. This is where they have been recruiting heavily and where I went. Let me start by saying that I WILL NEVER EVER WORK FOR THIS COMPANY AGAIN. There is entirely too many things to list on this complaint but suffice it to say that if you are considering going to the USVI on a contract, please heed these warnings...(1) do not go thru tru-staff. You can go thru different companies and be sub-contracted thru tru-staff. I suggest Titan or PNS, anyone but tru-staff. (2) Make sure you have at least $2000.00 cash when you go. You need a rental car. Do not buy an "island car". You are wasting your money. It will cost you 1200.00 to get into a rental car up front and anywhere from 500.00-800.00 a month for said car after the 1200.00 up front. (3) If you are female, DO NOT TRAVEL ANYWHERE ALONE (4) The violent crime rate is high, be prepared. (5) You are not a "local". Some people are very nice and friendly, most ARE NOT. You will be taken advantage of, charged a higher fee for services and goods. Be aware of whats going on around you and to you. (6) Everything is VERY EXPENSIVE. Food, clothing, toiletries, EVERYTHING at least 3X as expensive than mainland. Be prepared.
I hope this has helped someone somewhere. This assignment IS NOT the "working vacation" it was sold to me as. It was a living nightmare because of the extremely poor service of tru-staff.
