I’m a nurse. Why do I have to take a competency test?


If you have a four year degree, you are not required to take the ABLE competency test. However, it is the procedure of Tri-County Services that all applicants who do not have a Bachelor’s degree are required to take the ABLE test. This test is an 8th grade level test.


What benefits do you offer to your employees?


Click on "Employment" at the top then click Employee Benefits for a brief summary.


You don’t contribute to Social Security. How will this affect my retirement?


Each individual is affected differently depending on previous employment and length of employment. At Tri-County Services, contributions are made to the 401a retirement plans. You may want to go to the Social Security website and search for Windfall Elimination Act or contact your local Social Security office to determine how this may affect you in the future.


When will I receive my first check?


Tri-County’s pay dates are the 15th and the last working day of the month. If a payday falls on a weekend or holiday in which our offices are closed, paychecks will be distributed the last scheduled work day before the weekend or holiday. You will be paid on the 15th day of the month for work hours completed on the 16th through the last day of the previous month. You will be paid on the last working day of the month for work hours completed on the 1st through the 15th of the current month.


Why do you need my auto liability?


Most employees are required to have auto liability insurance because at one time or another, you may have to drive your vehicle or a Tri-County vehicle for Tri-County business. JI Companies, our liability insurance company, requires all employees to have their own auto liability insurance coverage.
