I’ve been a nurse for over 30 years, and I’ve worked for several staffing agencies. Hands down, I couldn’t have dreamed of a better agency than UNI! Dexter and his team (including Courtney, Judy, Kelly and Mylene, just to name a few) are awesome! Whether I call or email, they’re always super-responsive. During the application process with the facility, they kept me informed every step of the way. Everyone in the office is kind, knowledgeable, and eager to help. They’ve never dropped the ball! Instead, they’ve remained consistent and supportive. Great hourly pay rates, weekly paydays and the best customer service, ever! Those are the reasons why UNI is #1 on my list!

I’ve worked with UNI for the past 9 months and I’ve really enjoyed it. The job is flexible, lots of times available, and you can get approved for overtime! Anytime you want to work you just call in and set up your monthly schedule.

I also worked throughout the whole covid pandemic, which was a blessing!
