It cost me $59.25 just to apply for a job? - page 4

Yikes!!!!:eek: I went to a home care private duty office and they gave me a list to complete. $16 for sheriff fingerprinting fees, $19.25 for FBI check and $16 for a FDLE background investigation. I have not had a "job interview"... Read More

    Yes, Kyasi. It is unbelievable. I sure hope that it is only Florida that requires this kind of insanity. I hope this kind of thing doesn't spread to the other states.

    Update: It looks like I have now been officially hired at both of the nursing agencies. One called yesterday and said to come next week for orientation. The other one left a message on my phone today saying " OK. You did all your paperwork. Let us know what date you can start working."

    It looks like that $59.25 turned out to be a good investment. Congratulations on getting two jobs!

    I think you were referring to my post. The little private agency I worked for. On Nurse's Day each year the nurses got $50 Bath and Body Work gift cards! I was shocked by that!! (Used to getting something really lame from other places I worked for whether a hospital or a cheap travel mug with their name on it! Wow- I feel so valued and appreciated by the $1 mug. haha.) At Christmas, everyone got a $25 Walmart gift card. You earned PTO! Not much mind you. Full-time hours would accumulate one week a year. Part-time hours more like a couple days. (But other agencies I worked for had no PTO at all. You could take off of course, but it was without pay.) I'm thinking there were a couple other little things I am forgetting has been 4 years now. Although not a bennie per se, the co-owner who was a RN would take a stand for her nurses, especially when it came to unrealistic/demanding families on private duty cases. It was great to know your boss had your back and was on your side.
