Employee Referral Program

Great Plains Drilling recognizes that one of the best ways to find new employees is through our own staff and people who are familiar with the organization and our staffing needs. Therefore we created the Employee Referral Program; work with even more of your friends!

1.  To refer a potential employee, please have the prospective candidate list your name in the "referred by" line on the GPD application form.

2. You are eligible for a referral award only when you refer external candidates and if the external candidate has not already expressed interest in working with GPD or has not previously been employed by GPD.  This is not a guarantee that the referral will be hired, they will still have to go through the interview process. 

3. If the candidate you refer is hired, you will receive a referral award of $500 (taxable) after the new employee has worked for GPD for 750 hours.  Please allow 30 days for processing payments.

4. Employees are able to refer as many candidates as they would like.  The referring employee must still be a current employee of GPD after the 750 hours to be eligible for payment.  If a candidate is referred by more than one employee, the referring employees can choose to split the award.
