Recruitment Process

All candidates are thoroughly vetted by our experienced, professional, and personable recruiting team. Our recruiting process includes:

Screening Candidates – When a potential candidate is identified, the recruiter reviews his or her resume. The recruiter then screens the applicants by telephone to gauge their professionalism, maturity, and positivity.

Testing and Paperwork – Before the interview, applicants are tested on their job and computer skills with Prove It. Applicants also fill out a general application, a supplemental questionnaire, and other paperwork such as tax forms. They receive written information on Palmer’s placement policies, expectations, and sign a confidentiality agreement.

Interviewing – The most important factor in the process. A recruiter thoroughly interviews each applicant, in-person or via video.

References – Palmer calls employment references to check that they are positive and pertain to the candidate’s resume. Palmer ensures that each reference is in a supervisory or managerial position.

Fees

Direct Hire – Palmer Staffing Services bills for direct hire placements on a contingent-fee basis, payable after the employee’s start date. The fee is based upon the employee’s annual compensation.  We offer an unprecedented industry guarantee for clients of a 6-month unconditional 100% refund.

Temp-to-Hire – For temp-to-hire placements, employers are again billed on contingency, based on annual compensation and payable after the employee has been hired. The fee is reduced $200 for each week completed and is supported by a guarantee that is prorated along with the percentage of the fee reduction.

Temporary – Palmer clients are billed at competitive hourly rates for temporary employees.

Insurance

All Palmer Staffing Services temporary candidates are covered by unemployment, workers’ compensation, and general business liability insurance.
