What staffing methods does Personnel Solutions offer?

Personnel Solutions offers temporary, temporary to hire and direct hire placements. A temporary placement can be for any length of time with the understanding that there is no permanent position available. Temporary to hire offers basically a “trial” period in which the candidate will be on our payroll and we cover all the costs of the employee. After the “trial” period, you have the option of transferring the candidate to your payroll, at no additional fee, and he/she becomes your permanent employee. Direct hire placements tend to utilize us as recruiters only. We recruit to your specific job description, provide you with candidates to interview and once you make a decision to hire, the candidate starts directly on your payroll.

What is Personnel Solutions recruiting process?

Every candidate participates in a telephone pre-screen to assess their communication skills. If the pre-screen is successful, they are brought in to our office to complete the registration process, an interview with one of our staffing professionals, and computerized skill assessments. At this time, they are also evaluated on their professional appearance and demeanor. Upon completion of the registration process, two professional references of past supervisors are contacted and need to be considered favorable. At this point, a candidate is made active and available and considered presentable to our clients. Drug screens are completed on all applicants. Background checks are completed upon Client request.
