Carol Dean & Associates, Inc. is one of the best employment agencies in Atlanta. As an initial step to building our relationship, we visit our client's office for an evaluation of hiring practices and human resources needs. This allows us to screen for candidates who will fit in with the company's corporate culture.
Most of our candidates have been referred to us by satisfied clients or from candidates who have already been successfully placed. Many candidates are handpicked with industry and job specifications in mind.
Each candidate goes through a rigorous hiring process, which starts with a face-to-face interview where we gather information to check references on employment history and qualify their previous experience. We work with ProveIt by Kenexa to administer special skills testing particular to the positions we are filling.
Achieving our clients' objectives is our top priority, so we present only the most qualified candidates we have sourced, those who are exceptional in every way and meet the qualifications to a T. You should only be concerned with screening for a chemistry match; leave the rest of the work to us!
Fees are charged based on a percentage of the first year's annual salary of the individual placed.
From the start date, your hire is covered with a 90-day replaceable guarantee, and we treat a replacement with the same urgency and expertise as if it were a new hire.
You will be called on a regular basis to make sure your new employee is meeting or exceeding your expectations. We appreciate your business and want to build a long-lasting relationship of mutual benefit.
Temporary employees, even those you might plan to put on as permanent employees, are just a temporary solution, and we would be remiss if we failed to point out the reasons for not going the temp-to-hire route. When you are hiring for a position and you want it to be temp-to-hire, you narrow the marketplace drastically. Those who are employed will not consider leaving a permanent position for a temporary one. Therefore, you might be settling for what you can get in the market of unemployed candidates. It would be fair to say that unemployed candidates want a permanent position with benefits that start right away. If you hire them on a temp-to-hire basis and go through the 13-week buyout, that puts their benefits well into the fourth month of employment, maybe even the fifth or sixth. These same unemployed candidates have registered with recruiters all over the city, and these recruiters call them when a position pops up that is permanent. These temporary employees have the mindset that they are dispensable. They want to be on solid ground, so they go on the interviews, and sometimes they find permanent positions. Now you are back to square one, having spent untold dollars in training, and you still do not have anyone in that empty slot.
When you go the direct-hire route, your investment is protected with a 90-day replacement guarantee, and these direct hires, generally speaking, give their all to protect the job they have finally landed. They usually will not take a chance on going on another interview because they have a permanent position with benefits already, and that is what they really want after all. The decision is yours to make, but our operations and accounting recruiters in Atlanta feel you should know your options and the obstacles that potentially stand in the way of making the most favorable decision for your company.
