Should Connecticut Employers Interview Temporary Employees?

Companies often feel the need to interview temporaries.

The question is:  “Why?”

Certainly, it makes sense to want to see candidates’ résumés; but the fact is, if you work with a reputable staffing service in Connecticut like A.R. Mazzotta, you shouldn’t HAVE to interview contingent employees.  It’s our job to do that for you.

Part of the value we provide as a staffing partner is relieving the time-consuming burdens associated with finding the exceptional talent you need – and that includes both screening and interviewing temporary employees.  At A.R. Mazzotta, each candidate undergoes a rigorous selection process that includes:

  • In-person interviews with experienced recruiting professionals to reveal an employee’s career goals, work history, talents and strengths.  Our staffing experts know how to make recruiting decisions based on subtle indicators, targeted questions and behavioral cues.
  • State-of-the-art interactive skill and behavior assessments. Our testing process accurately measures applicants’ existing skill sets and other indicators of success, to ensure precise skill matches.
  • Comprehensive screening, testing, reference-checking and E-Verification. We conduct these vital, but often overlooked, components of the staffing process with every one of our temporary employees.

We do all of this to make staffing simpler and quicker for you – and to give you the peace of mind knowing that our temporaries will arrive qualified and motivated to do a great job for you.

So our advice?  Save yourself the “double work” of interviewing individuals whom we’ve already interviewed for you.  With over 40 years of recruiting experience, you can trust A.R. Mazzotta to handle the process correctly and thoroughly – so you are free to focus on other important priorities.
