Offering Temp, Temp-to-Hire and Direct Hire placements.

The temp-to-hire process consists of the employee remaining on our payroll for a certain amount of hours. We will pay the employee directly, and be the Employer of Record. The employee would be covered by our Worker’s Compensation insurance and liability insurance. We also offer Direct hire and Temporary placements.

Frequently asked questions

Do candidates pay a fee?

There is never a fee from SLPS to a candidate or to an employee.

Do you offer a certified typing test?

Yes, we provide certified typing certificates. The test must be taken in our office.

Do I have to make an appointment for a typing test or do you accept walk-ins?

It is preferable to make an appointment; however, we also accept walk-ins.

What is the difference between temporary, temp to hire and direct hire placement?

We fill three types of positions: temporary, temp to hire and direct placement. Temporary positions are for a specific length of time; usually a short period of time from one day to six months. The employee is employed by SLPS for the entire assignment. Temp to Hire is used by client companies primarily to determine whether or not an individual is the right fit for a position in their company before committing to a long-term regular position. The employee is an employee of SLPS during the entire temp to hire process and transfers to the client's payroll after working the required number of hours in the temp to hire process. The length of time is basically equivalent to an introductory period. Direct placements are often for higher level or high skill positions. SLPS recruits and evaluates candidates for client companies. However, the individual is an employee of the client company from their first day of employment.

Do you offer training to meet California SB 1343 requirements for Respect in the Workplace?

Yes, we offer a one-hour seminar for employees and a two-hour seminar for supervisors entitled: Respect All: Harassment, Discrimination and Retaliation Prevention. These seminars include a section on Human Trafficking for businesses required to provide this training under the requirements of AB 2034.

How do I find out if I'm already registered?

If you email or call our office, we will check our database to verify whether or not you are registered.

At what point, do you disclose the company information?

Basic informaiton about the client company, including industry, city and company size is shared prior to a candidate's resume being shared with the company. The client's name is shared once the client requests a phone or in-person interview with the candidate for a specific position.

Is the testing a required part of the process?

Skills testing is a required part of our evaluation/placement process for office positions. Skills testing is sometimes required for warehouse and production positions. Positions including labor assignments and hospitality assignments do not typically require testing.
