I have submitted this review elsewhere as well. I secured a long-term position though VT. I initially found the agency staff to be polite and knowledgeable, and was happy with the school. However, towards the end of my contract, I found them to be not the most transparent of agencies. [...]

Such a terrible agency! I've literally only had a few days of work within the year I've been with them, which is quite shocking. Pay rates are pretty low, and considering how far they have sent me for work; it's really not worth it when you deduct travel expenses. [...]
