A. We personally visit every company we represent, and we meet every applicant we refer for interviews. You are greeted by a person -- not a recorded menu of options -- when you call our office. Our goal is to establish a long-term relationship and repeat business with our clients. We've found personal attention is the best way to accomplish that goal.
Q.How long has Apple been in business?
A. We've been in business since 1980. We have always specialized in permanent placement of office support positions, so you are benefiting from a wealth of experience.
A. We advertise and post positions online, but by far the most effective method is word of mouth. We receive referrals from satisfied applicants, regardless of whether we placed them. We're known for spending time listening to applicants and talking honestly with them. Our reputation for treating applicants well benefits you because you rely on our ability to attract good candidates.
A. We consider reference checks an integral part of the evaluation process. Our purpose is to get an objective opinion from someone who has observed the applicant in the workplace. Because we are not representing a specific job or company, we are able to obtain candid and often revealing information. All references are checked prior to referring an applicant to your company so there will be no unpleasant surprises when you are ready to make an offer.
Q.How long will it take to fill a position?
A. It depends on the employment market, the position you have open, and the salary you are offering. If appropriate candidates are available, we can set up interviews within a day or two. If we need to tap into our network of contacts to find you the right person, it will take longer.
Questions About Our Placements...
Q. Do I need to sign anything?
Q.Do I need to pay any upfront costs?
A. No. Payment of our fee is contingent on you hiring a candidate we refer to you. Our service includes recruiting, interviewing, testing, screening and reference checking as well as coordinating job interviews and follow-up communication with your staff.
Q.Do you guarantee your placements? Can I get my money back if things don't work out?
A. Yes, provided we have an appropriate match. Most of our candidates are currently employed and we are not a high-volume temporary service, so short-term assignments would depend on candidate availability.
Q.Do I owe you anything if I don't want to hire any of the candidates you refer to me?
A. No. Payment of our fee is contingent on you hiring someone.
