How Can We Help You?

Frequently Asked Questions

A temp-to-perm job is a permanent position where the company requires the new employee to work their first few weeks on a probationary period. Employers often use these types of jobs to test out a potential new hire before making a commitment. Here at City Personnel, more than 85% of our temp-to-perm jobs end in a permanent placement.

Here at City Personnel, we offer several benefits to our temps, including paid holiday*, sick pay*, weekly pay period, business cards, swag bags, monthly recognition, referral bonuses, awards, and more!

For job seekers, working with a staffing agency is completely free. Staffing agencies make their money by charging employers for the service of finding and placing qualified candidates in their open positions.

Staffing agencies are just one resource for your job search. When working with a staffing agency, you are also able to look on your own for work using job boards or networking!

Assignment types vary depending on the staffing agency. Here at City Personnel, we offer temporary, temp-to-perm, and direct hire opportunities.

Over 85% of the roles we hire for result in a permanent position.

Here at City Personnel, we work with some of the top-rated companies in Rhode Island and Southern Massachusetts. Our clients range from small businesses to large corporations.

At our agency, we understand how important it is for our candidates to work at a job they are happy at. That's why we pride ourselves on having an open-door policy that encourages workers to come and speak with their recruiter or representative if they feel like something needs to change. We understand that if a candidate doesn't feel like they are in the right place, then it won't be beneficial for them or for us as an agency. Our policy allows for our temps to express any concerns they may have with their placement and gives them the opportunity to discuss what could be done differently so that everyone can benefit from the arrangement.

How long the whole process can take will vary depending on the job opening you applied to and your requirements, such as salary, desired location, etc. If everything goes well on your client interview and you provide all the necessary documentation, and the client is looking to hire immediately, it can be as soon as a few days.

Working with a staffing agency is very simple. First, job seekers will have to register with our staffing agency by applying to one of our job openings at citypersonnel.net/jobs. After applying, we will reach out to you about setting up a time to meet.

 

During our meeting, we will review your resume to see what job opening we have that would be the best fit for your skillset. Then, we will send your resume to our client, and if they like your resume, we will schedule an interview with them. If the interview goes well and they offer you the job, you become an employee of City Personnel!

One of the key advantages of working with such an agency is that it significantly speeds up the job search process. Seeking out staffing agency services gives you access to their expansive network of employers and their knowledge of current vacancies in the market. As a result, you are likely to receive notifications about potential roles far sooner than if you were searching alone, giving you an edge over others who may be competing for the same position. Additionally, since staffing agencies are experienced professionals in recruitment, they often have expert advice on developing resumes, structuring interview answers, and other important elements which can give applicants a competitive advantage in securing employment.

If a particular job we are hiring for does not meet your expectations, you are not obligated to accept it, and we encourage you not to accept it. We believe this is the best way to ensure the success of our temps and our clients, as well as create a satisfactory working experience for all parties involved.

By working temporary jobs, you get the chance to explore different work cultures and styles from a variety of employers. Many temporary positions offer an abundance of learning opportunities as well. You can better understand how a workplace operates, strengthen your skills with on-the-job training, and try out new roles and responsibilities which could potentially be rewarding for future job prospects. Additionally, temping provides flexibility with scheduling options and the ability to choose multiple short-term assignments or longer stints, depending on your availability.

We Need Your Support!

According to a 2021 study by U by Kotex, two in five people have struggled to purchase period products—a 35% increase from 2018. Period poverty disrupts everything from school attendance to the ability to work, forcing many to choose between paying for food or period products. 

We believe that no one should have to face such difficult choices. That’s why we’re reaching out to ask for your support. Please consider donating period products through our Amazon Wishlist to support this cause. 

In partnership with Leadership Rhode Island and Amenity Aid.
