How Does Your Process Work?
Using our services for your household staffing needs is very easy; it takes only four simple steps:
Submit Request ==> Interview ==> Job Trial ==> Job Placement.
Submit Request: Once we receive your request, we will send you our agency agreement for your review and signature. When we receive the signed agreement, we will screen our candidates to find the ones that fit your needs. We will begin sending you resumes within minimum five business days of receiving the signed agreement.
You can submit a request through our Find a Candidate Page CLICK HERE, call us or use the live chat feature on our website.
Interview: Once we find qualified candidates, we will send their resumes to you so that you can select those you would like to interview with.
Job Trial: After the interview process, you may request a job trial with the candidates of your choice in order to aid in your decision to hire. There is no fee to the agency for the job trial, however candidates must be compensated for their time.
Job Placement: Once you feel like you have found the right candidate, you can then make a job offer. Our agency requires that you contact us with a written offer of employment so that we can present it to the candidate. Upon accepting the job offer and after thorough screening the candidate becomes employed by the family, and only then will fees be due by the client.
What Is Your Candidate Screening Process?
We complete a pre-screening on every candidate that applies to our agency. This includes completing a Job application, providing various documents to prove employment eligibility, in-depth interviews etc. We also perform a complete background check (Criminal record, social security verification, past employment verification/reference check).
