1. What’s the benefit of using a placement service?
Answer: ARS employs people to search out qualified candidates. We
are a complete HR solution. When a client has staffing needs, we organize a recruiting force to ensure
that we find the most qualified trades people to fulfill the job needs. Our group of trained recruiters
performs internet searches, database searches and works with a myriad of our partners to find and qualify workers for your
projects. We will assist in getting craftsmen licensed. We work within our client's
constraints and provide information to the client as required and requested. We comply with the client’s
paperwork, interview, screening and hiring needs.
Our service is performed nationally.
Therefore, one phone call to our office will commence the process of finding qualified workers wherever your next project
is located. To minimize expense, our searches start locally and move out in a radius to maximize the potential
of finding qualified workers within the client’s time frame and budget.
After an effective 90-day trial period, any employee that you are interested in transferring to direct can be
done by simply not turning in a timesheet. There are no transfer fees!!!We handle all aspects of hiring,
worker’s compensation, unemployment and payroll. ROF becomes our issue along with injury and payroll-related
issues. We specialize in HR.

hesitating to go farther away to match qualified workers with the open job opportunities. If local labor
is available, we can find them. If not, we can find qualified candidates willing to travel.
