When do temp agencies pay?
When you are hired through a staffing agency, in almost all cases, you will fill out and sign a contract that includes terms of payment. Frequency of pay (i.e., weekly, bi-weekly, etc.) can vary per agency.
What will my schedule look like?
During your interview with the staffing agency, your recruiter will ask you questions regarding your availability. Your recruiter will work with you to find a position that best fits your schedule. Limited availability may reduce the number of opportunities available to you.
Do temp agencies drug test?
Depending on the job role and the requirements of the hiring businesses, you may be required to take a pre-employment drug test.
How do temp agencies make money?
Staffing agencies make money by charging for any recruiting services they provide. This includes creating job listings, screening and interviews, drug testing, and placement. Additionally, agencies will charge a higher hourly rate than what the employee is being paid.
Service fees charged are often less than the costs of paying in-house recruiters or maintaining a human resources department, which is why hiring a staffing agency is appealing to many businesses.
How to get out of a temporary employment contract?
Terminating a temporary employment contract is often similar to the standard two-weeks notice that many businesses ask for. Not all contracts require the same length of notice. Breaking a contract without proper notice may require that you pay a fee, so be sure to read over your agreement before leaving a contracted job.
