Shift Details Updates
Ratings and Reviews
Good and bad
Usually lots of shifts available to apply for. I like the Calender and the fact you can apply to many shifts without being double booked as that can be hard when working over emails. Would be good if this Calender could sync with google Calender or iPhone Calender. I’ve found the calculations of rate x hours to be completely wrong and there’s no way to add in unpaid breaks so salary counter is always wrong. Other than this I’ve only had one other problem with the app which was being booked for shifts I had never applied for which was very unfortunate as the cancellation policy for Locums warns you may not be booked again if you have cancellation on your profile as they share this with all companies.
So far the best locum agency
This is more generally about the company than the app itself.
The good side is, the app clearly shows the most important information that you need before deciding on the shift. The response is quick and success rate of securing a shift is good. If they have a build in call function, that would be better
The down side is they should allow negotiation for rate and mileage which is available if you are booking direct with the company the agency covers so they are missing out on this. They should also provide a “ask a question “ or “nudge” button to get everyone a shift. They should also have an alert function that sends email when a certain shift has its rates changed.
I know they design in a sway to avoid double booking, but they should let the detail down to the hour. For example, I can’t take another shift starting from 18:00 even if I got a shift only for 08:00-17:00, which means I and employer may miss out since I cannot apply after my shift ends, when most shift coordinators has ended their working day. This is a feature they should change asap , especially when there is “a national shortage of pharmacist “ as pharmacy owners says, they should make it easier for hard working pharmacists to do as many as they can and want.
Good and useful app!
I actually prefer using this app to book work as I can’t get double booked and can see pop up notifications if successful- the diary with address and pay details are also very useful to have on hand. A big bonus would be if I could sync with other calendars.
I really like the new negotiation button for shifts, however, does have its limits ( only allows hourly pay negotiation) I would have preferred it to allow for other things eg. comment section for full mileage/ lunch pay etc.
Also would like it if the filter for shifts did not require to be applied every time I use the app.
Overall, easy and simple app to use and prefer it to emails and phone calls.
