Q: What benefits do I get as a traveler?
A: If you work over 30 hours per week during a travel assignment, your hours are considered full time. As such, you qualify for full time benefits with your travel company. Benefits vary from company to company, but will relatively be the same types between companies. So, remember to look at other factors when choosing companies in which to partner–especially the recruiter.
Listed below are the benefits with Triage Staffing and are subject to change in 2019.
Health Insurance, Dental, and Vision
You are eligible to enroll after 30 days. You can keep the coverage through the end of the month following your end date. You do not have to restart the 30 day waiting period as long as you take an assignment with us within 120 days after your end date. Contact me for specifics regarding premiums and insurer.
You are eligible to contribute to our 401(k) plan immediately. Your contributions are vested immediately. We start matching after you work with us for a total of 1 year and can match up to 4% of your income.
You are eligible for 40 hours of PTO every time you finish 2,080 hours with us. The exception to this accrual method is California, which offers sick pay. Contact me for more information about sick pay.
We reimburse for a variety of expenses including:
- State license: we reimburse for the full cost of licensure once you work in that said state
- Travel expenses: we reimburse for expenses to and from your assignment
- CEUs: we reimburse up to $300 per year
- Miscellaneous expenses: if you have any job related expenses (i.e. CPR card) let your recruiter know. We care about our travelers and are willing to dip into our part of the bill rate to help you take care of professional expenses.
