Thoroughly enjoyed working for and all interactions with other staff are peaceful and relative to myself and work. Enjoyable. Rewarding.
Thoroughly enjoyed working for HCA, as able to diversify from Aged Care to disability easily. Management and other staff are always helpful and friendly. HCA encourage workers to better them selves by studying to further advance their career and offer training courses that are required at a reasonable cost.

effective workplace
I am happy to work for HCA. It is a respectful company that pays top dollar for Nurses' hard work, easy to put availabilities and manage/view shifts, as well as submit timesheets on your smartphone. Free training courses for employees.

Good company to work for
I enjoyed working as an agency midwife and have gained some good experience from this. I would recommend Healthcare Australia and found them to be supportive and helpful.

Great people. Poor pay rates.
Great people work at and for Healthcare Australia. They provide work opportunities in a great range of different facilities. The pay rates are poor in comparison with other Healthcare agencies.

Didnt get enough shifts
I was not that much happy due to not getting enough shifts, so therefore I currently left working there. The company and the staff is great but due to being agency, I wasn't able to get enough shifts

Good pay, but hardly any work!
There's hardly any work, and yet they are still advertising for more nurses?? Please try and provide work for the nurses you've already got first, before advertising for more. It doesn't make sense! It's also worth mentioning that work distribution is not fair, as some nurses are given more shifts than others (from my own experience), despite being available for the same shifts and for the same days.
Rate of pay is good, however, and mandatory courses are provided.
Pros
Good pay rates.
Cons
Hardly any work.

Just wonderful.
A wonderful organization to work with. Friendly people and ready to help, listen and walk you through whatever issue it is. I love it! I would recommend if you are serious about what you do go to HCA.

rewarding job, sometimes stressful, unpredictable shifts
friendly staff, rewarding job, sometimes stressful. Shifts unpredictable, sometimes not enough break between shifts. the hardest part of a job - assaults by children in care, very dangerous behaviour sometimes.

really random what you gonna get
pretty good exprience working with HCA especially if you are a RN student. this job can be really difficult or easy depending on where you get sent to which is of course part of the job as an agency worker.

Treat employees as a commodity- will discard you no questions asked to stay onside with corrupt employers
All is friendly until something goes wrong with a company hiring Healthcare workers, then Healthcare Agency workers will be non- supported and discarded like a dirty rag.

Stressful environment with a lack of proper management
The one thing I enjoyed about this job was my team. We all worked well but it was a very face-paced job, and I feel like we didn't have the support from management that we needed. This was difficult because we were pretty much an entirely new team with no experience within the company.

Rural Remote or City Life You Choose
I am a Mental Health Nurse. Working for HCA allows me to arrange my work around my life rather than my life around my work.
City community & inpatient teams are all under pressure. The joy of contacts where you can focus on care and keep out of office politics is precious. The option to float above the politics isn't always enough to make a tough team a good place to work - but bless HCA do your contact and then say no to going back and that is accepted you don't get hassled to accept another shift there.

Stretch yourself. Take a break from your routines [or your family?] head bush. Take a contract with Rural and Remote - care for patients coping with different stressors fire drought floods - small teams in interesting places who call you by name and are so happy to have you - an alternative to being 'the agency nurse'.

If you are reliable, work hard, and have sound skills there is nothing like to freedom of agency work. Just don't be a nurse that puts their name down for a shift and then won’t answer the phone. If you don't want to work take yourself off roster. Make it easy for the consultant to book you and you will be plenty of work - and if you are like me LOVE it.
Pros
Choice of location and hours of work
Cons
No holiday pay
