Employee Referral Program

Great People Know Great People is an employee referral program designed to reward team members for their efforts to refer candidates to open job opportunities within the organization as part of our overall recruitment strategy.

Programs like this are valuable because team members can refer candidates they believe will contribute positively to the company culture and success! 

The Employee Referral Advantage

Your Referral Matters

This initiative aligns with our mission to cultivate a positive company culture. We reward our Great People for referring candidates to open job opportunities.

When you encourage your family, friends or previous co-workers to apply, you not only contribute to our growth but can also benefit with a $500 bonus for each successful full or part-time candidate referred.

Referral Submission Process

Encourage your network to start a fulfilling career at Shannex through our Employee Referral Program.

Step 1: Spread the Word!

Before your referral applies online to the open job opportunity, let them know they’ll need to provide your name and email during the online application process.

Step 2: Referral Submission

After your referral completes their online application, expect an email from Shannex with the subject line “You were listed as a Great People Referral” that includes questions about their fit for the position.

Once completed, your referrals’ application will be flagged as a referral to our recruitment team

Step 3: Referral Bonus Eligibility

If your referral is successfully hired into a part-time or full-time position, you will be notified by our payroll team of your referral bonus and when you will receive it. Typically this would happen within the first 2-3 weeks of your referral being hired.

For full details on the referral bonus program read the Great People Referral FAQ’s.

Remember to direct referrals to specific Shannex job opportunities. If no suitable opening is found, send resumes to jobs@shannex.com.

We appreciate your commitment to building our team at Shannex.
