As an extra plus, we’re increasing referral bonuses so you can earn extra cash by referring friends, family members, and anyone else that you know!

How much can you earn?

  • When one of your referrals creates an account with Bluecrew and works their first shift from July 19 through September 30, 2021, you get a $100 bonus.
  • Get 10 entries into the $10k sweepstakes for every referral who works at least one shift.

Frequently Asked Questions

How will I receive this bonus?
You will receive bonus payments as part of your weekly paycheck within two weeks of achieving the bonus criteria.  

Does the bonus count towards overtime?
Yes, the shifts worked bonuses are included as part of your regular earnings to determine overtime pay. Referral bonuses are not eligible for overtime pay. Should you be eligible for overtime pay in any weeks covered by the bonus period, the bonus will be included as part of your earnings to determine your regular hourly rate of pay and recalculate weekly earnings as required for overtime purposes.

Will the bonus be taxed?
Yes, bonus payments are earned income and will be taxed the same as your regular wages. All standard withholdings apply.

If I work less than the required number of shifts am I eligible for a prorated bonus?
No, there is no prorated bonus. You, or your referral, must work the designated number of complete shifts to be eligible for the bonus.

Am I eligible for a bonus for working at any customers?
Yes, the bonus applies to complete shifts worked at any Bluecrew customer locations. 

Am I eligible to collect several bonuses at once?
Yes, each bonus and its eligibility criteria is separate and a Crew Member may earn multiple bonuses within the time period. Also, eligibility and receipt of bonuses under the Essential Rewards program does not disqualify a Crew Member from earning additional bonuses that may be offered at or around the same time.
