There’s No Limit to How Much Extra You Can Earn

Now you might be wondering, “How much money are you talking about?” Great question. Here’s how it breaks down:

  1. Refer a helper and you’ll earn $100 after they’ve worked 120 hours
  2. Refer an apprentice and you’ll earn $250 after they’ve worked 120 hours
  3. Refer a journeyman and you’ll earn $500 after they’ve worked 120 hours

So, if you know someone who would make a great addition to our growing team, call your local branch today. Or, if it’s easier, you can encourage the tradesperson to apply for one of our open jobs online at After they’ve applied online, a member of our team will reach out via phone.

  • During the call, the candidate will be asked a few questions, including, “Did anyone refer you?”
  • At that point, the individual MUST reference your name for you to get credit (and cash)
  • After your referral is hired and works 120 hours, we’ll direct deposit your referral reward
