Is there a minimum amount of time required for a staffing contract?
No, the contract is usually established for one year and is renewable but there is no minimum requirement for staffing.
Can I hire the individual if I am pleased with their work?
It is important to identify at the signing of the contract whether this is a temp to hire agreement, recruitment agreement, or a staffing agreement. Zoom Staff cannot accept employment with a client unless a “buy out” of the contract is made for staffing services.
What type of screening is done on staffing employees?
All staffing employees are employees of Zoom and have taxes and Social Security withheld from their payroll. For employment, Zoom will conduct a drug screen; a criminal background check; a state and national sex offender check; OIG check; and employment eligibility verification (E-Verify) in addition to personal and work related reference checks.
How long before staff can be placed?
Unlike temporary agencies, Zoom determines the type of staff required by our client for a particular position before recruiting. Zoom works to identify possible candidates for staffing within the shortest time frame.
How are fees determined?
The contract will identify fees that are determined based upon competitive rates within a geographical area and requirements of the position.
Can you guarantee that a suitable candidate will be located?
Zoom will perform an extensive search to locate a suitable candidate for every client request.
What is the term of the contract?
The length of the contract is 120 days and can be renewed.
What guarantee does the client have after a candidate has accepted the position?
Zoom will refund a pro rata portion of the fee if the candidate should vacate employment during the first 90 days. Zoom will also continue to search for a replacement.
