My work is definitely feeling the “labor shortage.”
We just upped everyone’s pay $1.50 and have a referral program where you get $250 if you refer some who is hired and they work for 30 days and then another $250 if they stay on 60 and 90 days (so total $750.)
This is for entry level work.
There are a lot of other issues going on of course, but I’ve never seen the staffing so low.
$2k referral has been increased to $4k. with 30+ positions open in my business unit. Mainly in operations. 70+ positions open for the division.
QC/QA engineers. Manufacturing Operators/ technicians. If you are in the boston area, hit me up.
we are having to increase salary ranges and sign on bonuses. ... a lot.
