A: The average time to find that right person can vary greatly depending on a number of factors including required skill levels, education and certifications needed, location, pay rate requirements, among other factors. Depending on the position you have open, New Hire Solutions can fill same day requests as well as provide resumes and schedule interviews for positions that require a more thorough screening process by the client. We assure you that every candidate presented will be pre-qualified in regards to experience, skill-sets and availability.
Q: Why should I use staffing services instead of filling the position on my own?
A: Staffing agencies provide invaluble services to small, medium, and large companies. Our team of recruiters and placement specialists constantly work for you sourcing, screening and presenting qualified candidates. This is what we do every day, which gives us the edge in finding those employees who will do the job for you. Our job is to recruit for you while you maintain production, increase profits, retain and develop staff and take care of your customer needs.

By utilizing a staffing provider like New Hire Solutions you allow us to help mitigate those risks.
