We Care For You
From finding the right jobs to keeping you happy on assignment to providing a wide range of benefits, we do our best to ensure you have a rewarding work experience. To show our appreciation for your dedication and hard work, we offer these benefits:
SPECIALTY strives to be the highest paying agency in the area. Call your local office to learn more.
SPECIALTY offers the most lucrative referral program in the industry. Anyone can refer to us. Remember, you don’t have to work for us to refer to us. Physicians, secretaries, maintenance workers and security guards are some examples of people that have taken advantage of our program. We base referral bonus amounts upon the modality and placement specialty of the healthcare professional.
Simply work 120 non-orientation hours and the bonus will be paid immediately. The following is an example of our bonus program:
- NPs and PAs: $500.00
- RNs and PTs: $400.00
- LPNs and ORTs / STs: $150.00
- PCAs, MAs and CNAs: $50.00
**Referral bonuses for healthcare professionals can vary by location. Contact your local SPECIALTY branch office to see if a referral bonus is being offered in your area.
The requirements for receiving a referral bonus are:
- You or your referral must not already be listed in the SPECIALTY database. (Your staffing coordinator will notify you immediately if you are already on file.)
- The referred nurse must mention you in the first conversation with a SPECIALTY representative on the phone or in the office. If your name is not mentioned or is not on the application, you will not be eligible for a bonus.
- We must have a completed W-4 withholdings statement completed by the *referral source prior to payment of bonus. (Note: all bonuses are subject to taxes.)
- In a case of “reciprocal referring” (two new candidates applying and referring each other), only one referral bonus will be paid to be split between both candidates. This also applies to those who have two people claiming they are the referral source.
- SPECIALTY reserves the right to change the plan details at any time without notification.
*All Recycled Nurse Practitioner (NP) Referrals will be paid at $250.00 while Registered Nurse (RN) referrals will be paid at $200.00. If you have any questions as to what a recycled nurse is, please don’t hesitate to call a SPECIALTY representative.
Referrals are a valuable part of our business and a win-win for all parties. Remember, anyone can refer to us. You DON’T have to be a healthcare professional and don’t have to work for us to benefit from this.
If you know of an assignment or position at a facility that SPECIALTY does not currently work with, let us know! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 718-428-3600 x201.
If you refer a long-term-care center to us (nursing home / assisted living community) and your lead turns into a new working relationship, and we place you at that facility, you will receive an additional $750 bonus. Acute Care Hospital, Medical Center or Allied Health Center bonuses will be paid at $1,250. The same terms and conditions apply as above.
Assignments range in length from one week to several months or more. Depending on the need, you can work one shift per week or full-time hours without getting cancelled. It offers you guaranteed work and the hospital continuity of patient care.
Per-diem work allows you to work when you want, where you want while still earning a very high hourly rate.
Are you interested in earning some extra cash? Many of our employer partners offer sign-on and completion bonuses based on the urgency of a position. Sign-on bonuses will typically be paid out within the first few weeks of the assignment. Completion bonuses are paid upon the successful completion of the contract assignment. For more details, contact your recruiter or coordinator. (Note: all bonuses are subject to federal and state taxes.)
SPECIALTY offers quality comprehensive group health benefits through United Healthcare / Oxford for any full-time contracted employees. This coverage includes major medical, prescription plan and hospitalization. There is a 60-day probationary period prior to signing up for our medical plan. For more information regarding what your participation cost will be, please call the office. All payroll deductions for your healthcare coverage are done on a pre-tax basis.
Effective day one of employment with no minimum hourly requirements! SPECIALTY employees can start contributing a portion of their wages for their future through our 401(k) program.
SPECIALTY offers two options to get your well-deserved pay: weekly paychecks or daily QuickPay. Contact your Payroll Specialist with any questions or requests. Email any questions to payroll or call the office during regular business hours Monday through Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. EST.
We understand that issues can occur at any time, not just during office hours. To ensure you have proper support, SPECIALTY always has someone available around the clock, even when our office is closed. To contact a SPECIALTY representative after regular business hours, call 800.863.3666, and someone in our call center will gladly assist you.
