FAQs for Employers

Is Dreambound a staffing agency?

Dreambound is not a staffing agency. We sponsor training for passionate aspiring Certified Nursing Assistants and Licensed Caregivers candidates and place them at jobs with our partner employers. Our unique approach allows us to reach dedicated job-seekers before they hit the market. This means our partner employers have access to a pipeline of fully-vetted, trained, and certified candidates before anyone else does.

I noticed you’re not in my location. How long will it take you to get here?

We follow our employers’ needs to various major metros. If you request a new metro area for us to enter, depending upon a few factors, it takes about 30 days to enter and send our first set of candidates to begin training.

How do you find people? Where do you find them?

Dreambound sources candidates via partnerships we have built with hundreds of vocational schools across the country.

How do you vet your candidates?

Dreambound Agreement candidates go through a rigorous vetting process. Since we sponsor the candidate’s tuition, we work hard to ensure that they are successful. Each sponsored candidate has gone through an online application, resume, and document review (SSN, HS diploma, vaccinations), background check, video interview, and completed their vocational training program.

What requirements do you have for people that you select?

We have three hard requirements: Education (HS diploma/GED or equivalent), Age ( >18 y/o), Documentation (state issued ID, Social Security card). In addition, we look for candidates who are reliable, compassionate, and who have a strong understanding of the role (we have many candidates who have been professional caregivers for years).

What about our special requirements? (drug test, BG check, vaccinations)

We try to do our best to meet our employers where they are at. If you have an additional requirement in addition to our existing vetting process, we will only send to your facility candidates who qualify.

When can I select candidates (what stage of the journey)?

Anytime after the start of the program. We begin sending profiles of candidates to partnered employers as early as the first week of training. Employers choose when they would like to extend job offers (many choose to extend offers during training). 

Who chooses who works at our facility? You or us?

You do. You have full control over whom you select.

How much does it cost?

The cost varies based on the plan you choose. Please reach out to our partnerships team for more details.

Can we be your exclusive employer in the area?

Unfortunately, we do not offer exclusivity to employers because we support and strive to continuously offer our candidates more choice in their employment journey. However, we are confident that we will meet your hiring needs for CNAs and Licensed Caregivers.

How do we get preferred over other employers?

In metros in which we have multiple employer partners, you will stand out to our candidates just by offering competitive rates, benefits, and a great work environment.

Are there any up front costs or fees? Mandatory minimums?

None. No fees. No minimums. You have an option of choosing between a monthly flat-rate subscription or pay-per-hire pricing model.
