Will you charge me a fee?
No, as a job seeker, you will never be charged a fee for Match to find you a job.  The employer pays us to find them top talent.

Are the jobs temp or direct-hire?
Match Staffing offers temporary, temp-to-hire, and direct hire opportunities.  The client company who is in search of talent makes the decision on how the hire will be handled.

What is “temporary,” “temp-to-hire,” and “direct hire.”

If temporary, then there is little expectation of being hired on by the company and the candidate will remain on Match’s payroll throughout the assignment.

If temp-to-hire, the company plans (but never guarantied) to hire the right candidate after a certain period of time.  The candidate will be on Match’s payroll for a period of time and then later transition to the client company’s payroll.  The time until transition depends on the agreement between Match and the client company.

If direct hire, the client company will hire the candidate directly onto its payroll – there is no temp period.  However, we typically set up interviews and negotiate salary and benefits.

What is the job placement process?
You should visit our office and let us briefly review your work history and perform  a background check.  If we believe we may have a place for you at one of our client companies, we will proceed with an application, skills testing, interview, and drug screen.  Any review of a background issue will be case-by-case and dependent on the client company requirements and the particular skills and needs of the position.

Where will Match place me?
Match works with small, local companies to Fortune 500 companies that are household names.  Our goal each and everyday is to match the best candidate with a great client company.  We can discuss more specifics during your interview at Match.

How do I get paid and when?
We require all Match employees to utilize either direct deposit or a paycard.  If you want or are use to getting a paper check – we found those who were unfamilar with these options soon realize how much better they work soon after switching from a paper check.  If you have questions, please ask us.  All employees are paid on Fridays and is a “week in the hole.”

What do I do when an assignment ends?
Pursuant to Alabama Department of Labor Rule 480-4-3-.37, a worker of a temporary help agency must “contact” that staffing company when the assignment ends.  Contact is determined by the individual staffing company and will differ among staffing companies.  Match Staffing requires its empoyees to complete a Request to Return to Work form.  A blank form was provided when you interviewed at Match.  If you misplaced your form, please come to our office.  Completion of the form is required by that rule to be done by the end of the next business day following your assignment.  If you have questions regarding this policy, please contact Rick Marks at Match.  If you fail to return the completed form by the deadline, you may be denied your unemployment benefits.
