Who You Know Could Be Worth A Thousand Thanks!

The Employee Referral Incentive Program (ERIP) is an integral part of our overall recruiting strategy and encourages employees to utilize their existing contacts and networks as potential sources for qualified candidates.

ERIP awards $500 for regular jobs, $1,000 for moderately hard-to-fill jobs, and $2,000 for most difficult-to-fill jobs to employees whose referral of an external candidate leads to a successful hire. Award payments are made one month after the successful referral reports to work.

There is no limit on the number of referral an employee can make, and there is no limit on the number of awards an employee can receive.
