If I list a job opening with you, will it cost me anything or obligate me in any way?
With El Paso Staffing Services, it is always “free to look.” Indeed, we encourage employers to compare the qualifications of our referrals with people you may already be considering. Then hire the best candidate, regardless of the source. While there is no cost to list a position with us and no obligation to hire anyone we refer.
Why would El Paso Staffing Services have better qualified people than I can recruit on my own?
El Paso Staffing Services finds unique candidates that traditional advertising misses. Serious career seekers seldom respond to help wanted ads or send their resumes to blind boxes. Many are currently employed and require the confidentiality a professional agency offers. Others are new to the area and seek professional assistance in finding the right career with the right employer. Most people who answer newspaper or internet ads fall into one of three categories: (a) the unhappy, (b) the unqualified, or (c) the chronically unemployed. El Paso Staffing Services penetrates the hidden labor market where the best candidates are found. We maintain a very large pool of pre-qualified candidates, generated by aggressive recruiting 52 weeks out of the year. When you call us, you immediately access these top-notch people — the majority of whom you will not find any other way.
How do I know you won’t waste my time, sending over scores of unqualified people?
El Paso Staffing Services, we will rather send no candidate at all than refer someone who is unqualified. Each referral is discussed with you before being sent, and a specific interview time is arranged. We won’t fill your fax machine with a hundreds of faceless resumes, and we will only refer a limited number of applicants (typically, 3 to 5.) These candidates must meet not only your specifications, but ours as well, or they will not be referred.
Isn’t it more cost effective to hire on my own, rather than paying your agency a placement fee?
We heartily encourage you to calculate the costs — all the costs. How much is your time worth, and that of your managers, pouring over resumes and interviewing scores of unqualified candidates? By scheduling a tightly controlled number of pre-screened candidates, your time will be spent seeing only people who are qualified for the job. We reduce the average employer’s interview time by 50 to 80%. More importantly, count the costs of turnover.
What is a temporary employee?
A temporary employee is an employee appointed to an assignment lasting one year or less, with a specific expiration date. It can last from a day to as long as the contract requires.
What kind of guarantees do I have the employee doesn’t work out?
Rarely does this happen, but there are times when factors beyond our control result in a person leaving or you simply are unsatisfied with the workers performance. If that happens we offer immediate replacement, if the position requires it. If not we can schedule interviews to find a replacement at no cost.
What is a temporary (Temp) agency?
A temporary agency provide workers to a variety of businesses via short-term contracts or indefinite temporary positions. From the employers’ point of view, temp agencies perform many of the duties of a company’s human resources department, but may be able to do so more efficiently and have access to a wider applicant pool. Workers see temp agencies as a place that will put in the effort to place them in a job, even in a difficult job market. Plus, a temp job can be a foot in the door that leads to a permanent position.
Aren’t all private agencies pretty much the same?
Definitely not. Most of the agencies you encounter these days are temporary staffing services, that do permanent placement as more of a sidelight. Their files are primarily filled with unstable temporary workers. The interviews they conduct are very brief, and their screening process is superficial at best. It’s not that they are “bad” businesses; they just have a different orientation. Their specialty is rapid, high volume “temp” assignments, not career development and permanent placement.
Why pay for a private agency when the State Job Service can do the same things for free?
Occasionally, this question still comes up, from folks that either aren’t familiar with the state employment agency or aren’t familiar with the work of a good agency. To them, we would ask this simple question. Have you ever known of any government bureaucracy that can do as good of a job as private enterprise in the same situation — or do that job as cost-effectively? The reason for this every businessperson understands. Private enterprise has the incentive (called profit) to serve the customer with excellence, while always striving to improve. Government employees, by the nature of the system in which they work, have no such incentive. They get paid regardless of what they produce — or don’t produce. Listing with state employment agency, most employers will agree, is a frustrating waste of valuable time, resulting in few if any qualified referrals. Furthermore, as a matter of principle, feel that if you believe in private enterprise and practice private enterprise, you probably shouldn’t be going to the government for so-called “free” services. Please give that some thought.
