Employer FAQs

How much will it cost my company?

The cost to you will vary based on several factors including account volume, workers’ comp costs and lead time for our staffing managers. SIS is committed to providing quality employees to your company at a competitive price. Our direct hire rates are competitive and typically based on market-specific factors. Direct hire rates can also be adjusted for exclusive recruiting efforts.

What is the process for finding employees through SIS?

Our search and recruitment efforts begin immediately. SIS 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.

For the higher-level technical positions, we will ask the human resources manager or hiring manager about the culture of the organization and some basic questions about the work environment.

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 timeframe for successfully finding an employee for you is going to vary based on our current employee base and your specific needs. We are committed to sending the most qualified applicants. You may decide to look at the most qualified applicants and do an interview, or we can fill a position based on the qualifications you provide.

With respect to the direct hire technical positions, it is a function of skill set, season, industry and compensation packages that play an important role in building a qualified candidate pool.

What kind of background checks do you provide?

Every applicant is reference checked based on the work history provided by them. We have some clients who request a drug screen, driving record screen or criminal background check. SIS 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.

The technical recruiting background checks take a deeper look into a candidate’s qualifications. At a customer’s request, we will provide reference checks as well as one-off reference checks for employees, and will verify any degree or certification listed.

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

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?

SIS is a full-service staffing company, and we handle positions in all areas of light industrial, clerical, technical and medical. 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?

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. 

By using the temporary-to-hire program with SIS 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 and unemployment costs, as well as taking away the stress of recruiting and sorting through applicants for the ones who are qualified. We can be a resource to you when questions arise about staffing and employment.
