Employer FAQs

How much will it cost my company?

The cost to you will vary based on several factors including account volume, workers’ compensation costs, and lead time for our staffing managers. It also depends on the number of stages in your hiring process and the type of job being filled. We will provide a bill rate for the position or classification of positions. All of these factors impact the costs related to the screening, orienting, training & hiring for a position. Career Concepts is committed to providing quality employees to your company at a competitive price.

What is the process for finding employees through Career Concepts?

Our search and recruitment efforts begin immediately. Career Concepts will get the details of the position from you so we will send the most qualified applicants for your needs. By clearly understanding your needs and the requirements of the position, we can select the best candidates.

Learn more about our screening, orientation, and training process.

You will be asked to complete a credit application and provide wage information as well as a job description for the position. We will provide a rate letter to you and provide information on our services and our policies.

How long will it take to have an employee in our company?

The time frame for successfully finding an employee for you is going to vary based on our current employee base and your specific needs coupled with timely responses to questions that we ask. We are committed to sending the most qualified applicants. You may decide to look at the most qualified applicants and conduct an interview, or we can fill a position based on the qualifications you provide.

What kind of background checks do you provide?

Every applicant is reference checked based on the work history provided by the applicant. We have some clients that request a drug screen, driving record screen, or criminal background check. Placements in the medical field have their own specific requirements. Career Concepts can provide these services as well as meet any other needs you might have for background or security checks. These can be coordinated through our office for a fee, or you may decide to do them yourself through your usual service providers.

What if I am not satisfied with an employee placed by Career Concepts?

We realize that not every job is a fit for every person, and sometimes that is not clear until the person is working. Our temporary-to-hire program provides an opportunity for you to see an employee in the work setting and determine if they will be someone you want to hire. If you are not satisfied with an employee, we can replace them. We also offer direct placement services and guarantees vary based on the contract for each client.

What kind of jobs do you fill?

Career Concepts is a full-service staffing company, and we handle positions in all areas of clerical, professional, medical, technical, light industrial, and trades. By having a broad base of applicants, as well as various recruiting resources, we can meet your needs in most areas of your business.

Why should I use your service instead of filling the position on my own?

By using the temporary-to-hire program with Career Concepts, the hiring risk is out of your hands. If you are not satisfied with an employee, we can replace them, and you have not made the investment of hiring them onto your payroll. We cover workers’ compensation during the riskiest time of employment–the first several months. We cover unemployment costs as well as taking away the stress of recruiting and sorting through applicants for the ones who are qualified. Career Concepts invests in our own employees by providing training and certification for all of our office staff. We can be a resource to you when questions arise about staffing and employment.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our employees and feel our greatest resource is our past, present, and future employees. The screening process for our applicants allows us to best match their skills and training to the positions.
