Employer Frequently Asked Questions
How much will it cost my company?
AtWork is committed to providing quality employees to your company at a competitive price. Our costs to you will vary based on several factors, including account volume, workers’ comp costs, and lead time for our staffing managers.
What is the process for finding employees through AtWork?
Our search and recruitment efforts begin immediately. AtWork 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.
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. 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.
What kind of background checks do you provide?
We check references on each applicant based on the work history provided. AtWork can also provide customized services, including drug screens, driving records, criminal background checks, etc., based on individual client needs. Depending on your customized bill rate, additional fees may or may not apply for these and other services. Please feel free to contact your AtWork representative with any questions.
What if I am not satisfied with an employee placed by AtWork Personnel Services?
We realize that not every job is a fit for every person and sometimes that is not clear until the person is working. Our screen-to-hire program provides an opportunity for you to see an employee in the work setting and determine if they are 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?
AtWork is a full-service staffing company, and we handle positions in all areas of clerical, professional, 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?
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 screen-to-hire program with AtWork, 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 take away the stress of recruiting and sorting through applicants for the ones who are qualified. AtWork invests in our own employees by providing employment law training and certification for all of our office staff. We can be a resource to you when questions arise about staffing and employment.
