What is the process for finding employees through Area Temps?
Our search and recruitment efforts begin immediately upon your order. Your account representative will go over the requirements of the position in detail, and forward the specs to our staffing coordinators. They will search our City Search™ database for the most qualified applicants currently available in our system. By clearly understanding your needs and the requirements of the position, we can refer the best available candidates.
If you are a new client, we will complete a credit approval process and issue a purchase order, which includes the terms of our agreement and other information on our services and policies.
How long will it take to have an employee in our company?
The time frame for successfully finding an employee for you is going to vary based on our current employee database and your specific needs. We are committed to sending the most qualified applicants. Our 30-minute response time means we will get back to you on the status of your order within a half hour, and we will keep you informed throughout the recruiting process.
What kind of background checks do you provide?
Upon your request, and if resources are available, Area Temps offers background checks, (driving record, criminal background and drug screens), and will verify the work experience and skills of the temporary employees we refer.
What if I am not satisfied with an employee placed by Area Temps?
We realize that not every job is a fit for every person, and sometimes that is not clear until the person is working. If you are not satisfied with the quality of our referral, upon notice from you within the first eight hours of employment, all charges for unsatisfactory work will be cancelled and we will refer an immediate replacement.
Our temp-to-hire program provides an opportunity for you to see an employee in the work setting and determine if they will be someone you want to hire permanently. If you prefer, we also offer direct hire placement services. Guarantees will vary based on our contract with each client.
What kind of jobs do you fill?
Area Temps is a full-service staffing company, and we handle positions in all areas of clerical, technical, professional, industrial and trades. By having a broad base of applicants, as well as various recruiting resources, we can meet your needs in most areas of your business.
Why should i use your service instead of filling the position on my own?
When you factor in advertising, reviewing resumes, screening candidates and conducting interviews, the recruiting process becomes very costly in terms of both time and money. Area Temps offers 20 professional recruiters who are trained to fill your position quickly.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our referrals and feel our greatest resource is our comprehensive applicant database, which contains over 80,000 local candidates. The screening process for our applicants allows us to best match their skills and training to available positions.
Through the Area Temps’ temp-to-hire program, you avoid the stress of hiring a new, permanent employee and then finding they aren’t qualified for the position. With our try-before-you-buy approach, if you are not satisfied with an employee we refer, we will replace them before they are hired onto your payroll. Meanwhile, we cover workers’ compensation and unemployment costs.
Area Temps invests in our own employees by providing training and certification for all of our office staff. We can be a resource to you when questions arise about staffing and employment.
