What is the benefit of working with a staffing agency?

Working with a staffing agency saves companies valuable time and money. By outsourcing staffing, companies can focus on growing the business rather than interviewing and selecting hires. There is less risk involved when using a staffing agency because staffing agencies pre-screen employees and assure quality hires. Working with a staffing agency such as Premier Staffing allows companies flexibility. If seasonal employees are needed to support an influx of business or temporary employees are needed to support a large project, working with a staffing firm is a smart investment.

What type of assignments do staffing agencies hire for?

Staffing agencies span across many industries. From technological to industrial, staffing agencies work with companies of all specifications to provide temporary, seasonal, and long-term employees. Many staffing agencies are specific to an industry. Premier Staffing, however, hires employees for companies in a variety of industries, including:

  • Light Industrial
  • Manufacturing
  • Production/Assembly
  • Data Entry
  • Customer Service
  • Clerical

How long would a normal temporary job last?

The length of a temporary assignment is completely dependent on the employer and the job at hand. Typically, temporary positions last one to three months, before the job is completed or the employer chooses to bring the employee on full-time. Once a temporary position is completed, employers may choose to hire an employee full-time. The employee would then become an employee of the company, as opposed to an employee of the staffing agency.

Who pays the employees?

When companies use a staffing agency, employees are technically employed by the agency. Because of this, benefits and paychecks are provided by the staffing agency. Staffing agency offer competitive pay for employees and many provide insurance benefits as well. At Premier Staffing, employees benefit from a weekly paycheck, often larger than their full-time counterparts.
