I have been working with my Recruiter Lauren so far and my experience has been very positive. I am still waiting for my first placement and we have been working diligently to get a good one that will be well suited for me. Lauren has helped me get it all together as well as check on me in between. She is wonderful and I highly recommend her and Vero so far! I can't wait to head out to Guam or Saipan and work and play hard!!
Vero has been so good to me. They helped get my stuff together for my first assignment which I was a nervous wreck having never done this before. The pay is great!! They respond to your questions promptly. It is a great company to work for.
Words can't even begin to explain how great it is to be in Guam. I can't believe this is my 1st travel assignment. Vero made this all possible. I ventured out here alone and Vero took care of everything. A car picked me up at the airport and took me to the most comfy accommodations at the Oceanview Hotel. My suite is well Pretty darn sweet equipped with a kitchen, living room, private room, and a private bathroom... oh and the view!!! Amazing! I see the sunset every evening right from my balcony. The beaches are breathtaking and the hospital I'm working at is has also great. If you're wanting to travel come to Guam! This is the best piece of paradise you'll find in a travel assignment. I ❤Guam!!! Thank you Vero!!! And a special thanks to my recruiter Robyn Salgado
I have worked with 3 other travel companies in the past but VERO RN definitely takes 1st prize! They truly care about their clients, emailing and calling frequently to see how the assignment is going. My recruiter has been available for me 24/7 and even gave me her personal phone number to call and text whenever I need. Their pay rate is very competitive if not higher than most companies. I will definitely be working another assignment with VERO!
Loved working with this company. Simon was awesome. Worked really hard to find what I wanted and their pay was way better than everyone else.
