    Default Signing Bonus????

    I'm not going to mention the company's name here (Ryhms with STS) in Denver but I just got a rather large signing bonus this week to join their team here in Denver. They are still currently offering signing bonuses I think.

    Has anyone else received a signing bonus in their career?

    I haven't but they are a common way of recruiting in other businesses. Seen in done in locating a few times. A cheap way to get instant trained and experienced workers.

    In 20+ years every contract company has failed in Colorado. Nobody wants to work,can't pass drug test,etc take the bonus and hope the next company offers one also.

    I hear the other company in Denver is going to try to start enforcing the non-compete clauses for their employees. Good luck at those are so non-enforceable anywhere, but especially in CO.

    I've received signing bonuses, but that was after I moved away from one-call.
