Working with a staffing company isn’t at all what it used to be. Staffing companies have evolved as have the types of employment they offer to those who are looking for a job. Gone are the days when companies looked to staffing companies primarily to fill administrative positions. Yet many still feel that staffing companies fall short of “real employment”. We’re here to set the story straight on what staffing companies have to offer and how you can benefit. Take a look at some common misconceptions about staffing companies as we give you the inside scoop.

I need a full-time job. Staffing companies only offer temporary employment.

The truth of the matter here is that staffing companies offer all different kinds of work opportunities from temporary positions to full-time employment. Many jobs include travel as well if that is something that fits into your lifestyle. There’s always the chance that a job that starts out as a part-time position opens up to full-time. Many times employers will choose to keep temporary employees who have done a great job and have proven to be an asset to the company.

One of the best advantages to working with a staffing company is that if you’re not sure what job you want to settle into, working a number of temporary jobs in various fields can give you a better idea of the type of work you enjoy and where your strengths lie. It’s kind of like trying a career on for size before you buy in completely. Sounds pretty great if you ask us!

I have bills to pay. I can’t waste my time working some low-paying temp job.

As with any other job, employment through a staffing service generally pays by level of experience. You will always know ahead of time what your hourly rate will be so you can decide whether it’s a good fit for your particular needs. If you are experienced in a particular field but are only finding entry-level jobs, you decide whether you are willing to work for that rate or whether you’d rather hold off and look for something else. If you choose an entry- level job, know that there is always room for advancement.  As your experience level  grows so does your paycheck. Staffing companies offer jobs at all experience levels, so there is bound to be something for everyone. Some jobs we have to offer at the moment are positions for registered nurses, business systems analysts, and customer service representatives.

I’ve heard that you can only get secretarial or administrative jobs from staffing companies. That’s not for me.

Years ago this may have been the case but not today. We offer various jobs at all levels of experience in the medical field, information technology, and customer service. If you’re looking for an administrative job, we can certainly place you in one, but that is by all means not the only field we cover. Jobs have become more and more diverse and employers really want to ensure that they hire the best people for the job. Staffing companies give employers a wide range of people to choose from by placing all available employment opportunities in one central location for prospective employees to look through. There’s nothing better or more efficient than pooling your resources.

I need a job with benefits. Surely a staffing company can’t help with that.

While we can’t guarantee that every job we post comes with a benefits package, we can tell you that employers know how important benefits are to prospective employees and several clients of ours do offer benefits to employees they hire through our staffing service. Keep in mind this is on a company by company basis, so if this is something that is absolutely necessary for you we will do our best to accommodate your needs. Rest assured, staffing companies are not limited to posting jobs for employers who don’t offer benefits. That’s just ridiculous.

The bottom line is this; staffing services work with companies to fill all sorts of jobs at various levels of pay and experience. Many jobs that start off as temporary positions can evolve into a full-time position if the employer feels it is a good fit that will benefit the company. If you’re looking for employment, why spend your time digging through classified ads or countless web pages when you can use a staffing service that already has a number of resources at their fingertips? Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed.
