Here are a few general guidelines to consider when choosing a staffing company

First, determine if you need staffing employees for a short- or long-term assignment, permanent job placement, or some combination. Then narrow your list of staffing firms to those that specialize in your industry, type of operation, or the types of employees you need. If it’s a permanent position—or likely to become one—find out if you can submit interview questions and participate in the selection process.

  • Current clients? Ask for examples of testimonials from current clients
  • How long they have been in the market, what are their areas of specialization?
  • How long does it take them to find the candidates and fill the position?
  • Will they take care of employee’s immigration related issues and provide a secure status?
  • Do they understand the client work style?
  • Do they understand the job description and the technical aspect of it?
  • Do they have qualified and well trained technical recruiters who are passionate about    recruiting.
  • How does the company screen candidates before recommending them to you? Whether they do behavioral and technical interviews?
  • What type of write-ups is provided from the screening process? Just a resume or more in depth notes on candidate interviews and test results?
  • Do they get referrals from employees and ex-employees?
  • Are they member of respected trade associations?
  • Are they approachable and personable?

Are they more focused on quality or quantity?

Some staffing companies spend time and effort narrowing down their candidates to find the perfect fit. Others will throw every qualified resume your way, in the hopes that one will stick. Most businesses prefer quality over quantity, depending on the position to be filled-although some prefer lots of options. Talk to the staffing company you’re considering and make sure their selection process works for your company.

What are the firms pay rate and benefit packages?

Because the employee is officially working for the staffing firm, it’s the firm who will be determining his or her wages and benefits. Make sure they offer good compensation and benefits package. The better their compensation, the higher caliber of workers they’ll attract.

What is your Mark-up and how do they charge?

Price is certainly an important factor in choosing a staffing agency, but it shouldn’t be your only criteria. Explore how the staffing company arrives at its staffing markup, and what services are included.
