You’ve never worked for a staffing firm, you have no idea what it means or what it can do for you. Read the candidate FAQs below:
How does a staffing firm such as Leddy Group help me find a job?
Working with a staffing firm, especially Leddy Group, can actually be the PERFECT launchpad to your career or next job. We have lots of amazing customers throughout northern New England who use our services to help find awesome talent!!!
Does the staffing company act as an agent and do you “charge me?”
Leddy Group is not an agent, so we don’t charge you for anything. We provide our candidates with three distinct means of helping to land a great opportunity:
Working on an interim/temporary position
Placing you on interim/temporary positions that last anywhere from less than a week to several months. In this scenario, Leddy Group is actually your employer. As a “field employee” of Leddy Group, you are placed on interim/temporary positions, working at a client company location. Leddy Group is responsible for paying you directly even though you are working at our customer’s site.
Working on an interim/temporary position that goes direct
Placing you on an interim/temporary position that is intended to ultimately turn into a direct “hire” full-time position for our customer... meaning after a specified period of time on an interim/temporary position the client company has the option to hire you directly. We work with the client company to make sure that your transition is a smooth one.
Interviewing for a direct placement
Presenting you to our client companies to “interview” for direct hire opportunities, meaning they are using us to present the perfect candidate for them to hire directly to their companies. In this case, you would be considered a “candidate.”
Who pays me?
Great question! If you are on an “assignment” (interim/temporary) then Leddy Group, as your employer of record, is responsible for paying you. You can read about what happens “once you’re hired” on our FAQs for “once you're hired.”
Why is working for a staffing firm a good option for me?
It’s not just a good option, it’s a great one! It can be very difficult to get your foot in the door just to get the interview. It’s a very competitive market. If you meet Leddy Group’s qualifications (interview, get tested, have skills/experiences that match our customer base) then you can actually work at a variety of different assignments, getting exposure to different industries and cultures. It helps you determine what you like, what you don’t like and what you would ultimately like to do for the long term. How great is that?!!!
Can “anybody” get hired by Leddy Group?
Good question. You need to have the skills/experience that match our areas of expertise. Understand, this is not a “registration” process; it’s an actual interview with us to determine whether or not you meet the qualifications of our customers’ positions. So put your best foot forward when you meet with us!
