I was offered a short-term contract job today and the rate is good but I think it can be better. The job will be stressful and there doesn't seem to be paid time off since I will be an employee of the agency that found me.

Would it be possible to negotiate with the agency for other things beside hourly rate, ie. paid time off or lower monthly premium for medical benefits, or something else?

Anyone else tried this?

TIA.

Where are you and what kind of job is it? Contract work is generally known for no health insurance or perks.

In theory anything in negotiable. Ask and see what they say.
