Registered Nurse in Gold Coast
Good agency, great app but no job security - that's casual work though.
I've found HCA very good to work for although there are lean times for sure at certain times of year. The booking staff are all friendly and there are some ex-nurses who are very good at matching the right shifts to staff.There are some problematic client hospitals that book lots of shifts and then cancel them and the agency is often good at finding alternative work, though with 2 hours notice it's not easy.The uniforms are an issue as I can be working 4 shifts in a week and have only one uniform. Never been given another despite asking.Overall I've found them better than other agencies.
Clerk and Concierge in Queensland
Promised lots of hours and don't get them.
Shifts in my area have dried up and the travel to other cities could be damaging to our health.. Regardless of travel incentives. Being offered quarantine payments is not enough.
Assistant in Nursing in Perth WA
Fun 🤩 productive
I was very much pleased to work with hca and I want to thank hca for providing me opportunities to be part of it 😊overall I enjoyed the most of it but some time I find some of the crew who received our phone call while contacting them in Perth are very rude with workers and some time just made our day so bad I have experience it few times .
The company has become too big, too quickly. As a result they are unable to provide health professionals with a cohesive experience. It feels as if they want contracts filled at any cost without support and concern for the employee. Punitive type communication style. Bonus schemes are difficult to follow and initiate. This company needs to look back at its roots.
Registered Nurse in Gold Coast QLD
Consistent and professional work
This was my first time signing up to a Nursing Agency after being permenant for 4 years and I wouldn't go back. Having the opportunity to work where and when I want has given me the time to enjoy the coast. I have been dealing with a lovely Recruitment Consultant, 'Brooke' who has been very informative, professional and timely with her management. I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the career opportunities it has opened me up to is very advantageous. Overall would rate Healthcare Australia very highly.
