What Does Working With a Staffing Firm Mean as an Employee?


Searching for a new job can be an extremely frustrating experience, whether you are looking for full-time, part-time or temporary work. A staffing agency can take much of the stress out of the process by matching you with positions where you will thrive. According to the American Staffing Association, nearly 3.2 million people choose to work through staffing agencies to find jobs, and that number continues to rise each year.

Choosing a staffing firm is just the first step, and many people wonder just what to expect as an employee. Here are some answers to questions we often hear about working as a new employee with DHR Staffing in Houston.

How Do I Know If a Position Is Temporary or Ongoing?

All of our job postings indicate whether a job is permanent or temporary, and your recruiter will discuss terms with you before offering the position. If you have any questions about the status of a particular position, always double-check with your recruiter before saying yes.

How Do I Get Paid?

If you accept a temporary or temp-to-hire position, you will be paid directly by DHR Staffing. Once you decide to work with us, you submit standard paperwork to enroll in our payroll program so you can receive paychecks or direct deposit.

Who Can Guide Me Through the Process?

As a new employee, you don’t have to walk through the steps of getting set up to get paid or receive benefits alone. Your recruiter is there to help guide you through the process. They will let you know what types of documentation you must submit, they will get you set up on our online portal so you can do your paperwork electronically, and they are there to answer any questions you may have along the way.
