Has anyone got their Ardent assignments for May?

Ardent usually gives me my monthly assignments like clockwork on the first of the month, but I'm surprised to say that I haven't got mine yet for May. I know they recently moved to new software and it's not like they're obligated to get them to me immediately, just wondering... Continue Reading

Ardent 1099 Frustration

I love working for Ardent. They pay the following month. Although their reports are long, they're pretty easy to do, and the pay is relatively high. However, they always send 1099s which include the costs of the meals we are required to buy. We can only write off 50% of... Continue Reading

A kudos to Ardent Services

I was really bummed out last night when after inputting my entire 2 1/2 hour report the site was so slow it would not save it for me and ultimately timed out. No one answered the phone at midnight and "help" was not working. This morning I spoke directly with the... Continue Reading
