Working With Us

wbenc-logo MMSDC-logoAt Premier, our continued success is dependent on earning the loyalty of customers like you. Our clients trust us with some of their most critical staffing needs; therefore we have developed a rigorous recruiting and screening process.

We work closely with each customer to understand strategic objectives, the industry and areas of expertise, and how we can help them solve current needs and achieve long-term strategic goals.

Premier is North America’s first choice in Commercial and Industrial Staffing, and our breadth of experience and expertise is fueling our international expansion. From Canada, throughout the United States, and into Mexico, we have successful and productive relationships that allow us to offer our customers an extensive network of resources and solutions for all their staffing needs.

Recruiting Process

Premier uses a variety of recruitment tools, from online job boards, ads, and personal referrals from customers and successful candidates. Our fair treatment of our candidates and contractors means they actively refer and recruit for us, finding more experienced, skilled, and reliable candidates for us to screen and evaluate.

Before consideration, all staffing candidates must pass Premier’s own stringent requirements including, but not limited to:

  • Detailed written applications and resumes
  • Multi-step personnel interviews,
  • Personal and professional reference checks
  • Written proficiency tests (client customizable upon request)
  • Drug screening
  • Client on-site interviews

Contract Placements

Selected contract personnel become employees of Premier and are contracted out to the customer companies at very competitive hourly rates.

As the employer of record, Premier handles all payroll, benefits, reporting (e.g. weekly time sheets), and billing.  Indeed, one of the reasons Premier is able to attract and retain high quality personnel is a generous benefits package offered at an expense to the employee after 90 days of employment. We also take a hands-on role for employee training and regular on-site management to assure a smooth integration within the customer’s operations, and a successful experience for both the customer and the contracted employee.

Direct Placement

Premier also has a pool of candidates who have been through the same rigorous screening, who are looking for permanent placement. We offer direct placement services for customers looking to hire the right candidate, but who don’t want the time or expenses of evaluating and screening a large number of applicants. Our customers prefer to look only at a few highly qualified candidates who have all the right skills and experience, and simply evaluate those candidates we hand-select for the placement.

Contract-to-Hire

If preferred, we are able to place a candidate on a contract so that our customer can evaluate candidate performance on the job and in the field. This is why Premier offers a contract-to-hire option. As with the Contract Placements, Premier remains the employer of record, and handles all payroll, benefits, reporting, and billing. At the end of the contract, the customer decides whether to hire the candidate as a permanent employee, or end the contract and move on to another candidate. Many of our customers choose to the Contract-to-Hire option for several candidates at a time, to help choose between them. At the end of the contract, the customer is confident with their choice of a field-proven team member who is known to be the perfect fit. This eliminates any risk or worry for the customer.

Project quotes

Upon request Premier will provide fixed price quotes for labor, materials, or both, directly from prints. This includes new equipment projects, equipment rebuilds, installations, maintenance, repairs, tear downs and setups. Have a project? Large or small, we can provide the quotes, staff, and equipment to get it done efficiently, quickly, and at a competitive rate.

Equipment Leasing

Premier has its own equipment that is available for lease for any project. We are happy to provide equipment as part of a project quote, or to provide standalone quotes for equipment such as power benders, bench benders, threaders and gang boxes. Contact us for information about available equipment.
