Do you offer health benefits for employees?

Yes! Employees who sign an employment offer of at least 30 hours per week will be eligible to immediately enroll in health benefits, for coverage effective the 1st day of the following month. Benefits include full medical coverage (with vision and dental), 401(k) with matching and sick pay.

How is relocation handled for travel dietitian jobs?

Dietitians On Demand provides a non-taxable travel stipend to cover travel and relocation expenses.

As an additional employee perk, we are partnered with ZayZoon, which gives our dietitians with established pay histories instant access to their wages ahead of payday.
