Check out the top 14 questions we get asked by companies looking to work with Randstad Engineering.

can Randstad engineering pre-screen candidates and do background checks before we offer them the job? Dec 14, 2018 1:39:34 PM 2018-12-14 18:39:34

When employers need top engineering talent, they need them quickly and they need them qualified. We know the value of keeping the hiring cycle as brief as possible — that's why we never deliver candidates who haven't been vetted by our experts. We provide candidates who have been thoroughly screened via a rigorous interview and qualifications review prior to sending candidates to meet with clients. Randstad also offers background checks as a post-offer, value-added service where required and permitted by law. Pricing varies on the nature of the screening required.

does Randstad Engineering offer a right-fit guarantee? Dec 14, 2018 1:40:18 PM 2018-12-14 18:40:18

Randstad Engineering has a vast network of qualified, vetted talent and proven processes in place to ensure you get only the strongest candidates from day one. And since we assess our candidates on cultural fit, as well as on their skills and experience, we get it right the first timeThat's why we offer a sliding ninety-day guarantee for direct-hire placements and three-day working guarantee for temporary placements. Our experience has shown that to be the optimal time frame in which to assess whether or not a candidate is the right fit.

how quickly can Randstad Engineering send us candidates? Dec 14, 2018 1:40:54 PM 2018-12-14 18:40:54

When you have a vacancy, you need to act quickly to keep things running. That's why we've perfected our candidate search process to deliver the right talent fast — often in as little as 24 to 48 hours.

To ensure you're getting nothing but the best-fit talent as quickly as possible, we'll work together to assess your needs. Then, we’ll turn to our extensive network of qualified, pre-vetted talent in order to provide you with qualified candidates quickly — and in plenty of time to evaluate them before the target start date. For positions that require additional stages of review, like background checks or drug screenings, the process may take longer, but rest assured Randstad Engineering always works to deliver you the talent you need as quickly as possible.

can you​ send us available candidates from your network for us to evaluate? Dec 14, 2018 1:41:34 PM 2018-12-14 18:41:34

While we do have a vast network of qualified, pre-screened candidates at the ready, we always suggest working together to find the best-fit hire for your business. In fact, it's what our high-touch approach to staffing is based on. At Randstad Engineering, we don't just fill roles — we take pride in our ability to utilize human insight to go beyond the resume and assess candidates based on less quantifiable factors like personality and culture fit.

At the start of our partnership, we'll sit down to review the requirements of your role(s) and your workplace culture to ensure we're targeting the right candidate profile. We have relationships with qualified professionals nationwide, so no matter how urgent or complex your needs may be, Randstad Engineering has a solution. We will work to send you the right candidates.

how do you evaluate the technical skills of your talent? Dec 14, 2018 1:42:09 PM 2018-12-14 18:42:09

For highly-technical roles, you need talent with the right training and expertise to get the job done. That's why, at the start of our partnership, we'll work together to establish a standard set of qualifications we deem critical for the role. Based on that conversation, we'll cross-reference any potential candidates against that pre-set criteria to make sure you get only the right people with the right technical skills for the job.

what's included in your billing rate? Dec 14, 2018 1:42:43 PM 2018-12-14 18:42:43

Randstad's bill rate encompasses all SG&A, including costs associated with marketing, recruiting, payroll administration, tax matching, employer business insurance, employee benefits, and more. Pricing is competitive, and we can work within the client’s budget.

do you participate in the Affordable Care Act (ACA)? Dec 14, 2018 1:43:20 PM 2018-12-14 18:43:20

Randstad complies fully with both the letter and spirit of the law and, to the extent possible, we assist our clients in their workforce strategies doing the same.  We make insurance available that meets or exceeds the minimum essential coverage required for all full-time temporary employees.

does Randstad Engineering interview candidates in person before sending to us? Dec 14, 2018 1:44:26 PM 2018-12-14 18:44:26

Today's top talent may be on the market for as little as 10 days — and that's especially true for talent with the most in-demand engineering skills. That's why we leverage our nationwide recruiting model to thoroughly vet candidates over the phone or via video interviews before presenting them for consideration. We've found that scheduling in-person interviews significantly slows down the candidate search process. ​

Our recruiting model enables us to identify, screen and deliver you best-fit candidates faster than a traditional, in-person interviewing model, helping you secure the engineering talent you need — without the wait.
