For Clients

Welcome to a new breed of placement agency.

What sets us apart?
First of all, we listen to you and to our candidates. Our approach is very straightforward. We start by gaining a thorough understanding of what you really want and never losing sight of that. So, whether you need temporary, temp-to-hire, or direct hire employees, The Job Shop will present candidates that have been screened for the technical skill set and cultural fit of your organization. We pride ourselves in taking a personal approach with each client and candidate to guarantee a successful partnership.

We search The Bay Area to ensure that we have found the best of the best. And as personal referrals often make the best candidates, we have a great referral system utilizing our most successful placements. In 2012/13, 45% of the candidates we placed were personal referrals. Of the candidates we send out, over 60% are referrals.

We test our candidates
We determine our candidates' computer skills by testing on all commonly used Microsoft Office software, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and more. We provide on-site written math, spelling and grammar testing as part of our screening process and are happy to provide you with individual test scores. Our tutorials help candidates further their computer skills and we've seen abilities and test scores increase after as little as one tutorial session.

A candidate or a temp from The Job Shop is an employee that we are proud to present and to have represent us. Our standards have earned us the privilege of working with a diverse group of highly regarded companies throughout the Bay Area.

Direct Hire
We realize that interviews and reference checks provide tools to make the perfect fit, but sometimes the candidate doesn't work out on the job. For this reason, The Job Shop guarantees its direct hire placements with a 100% refund or credit if the employee leaves or is terminated during the first sixty days of employment.

Many clients choose our Temp-to-Hire services, that is temping a candidate prior to a direct hire. We find Temp-to-Hire arrangements provide a great "test drive" for both the clients and the candidates. The guarantee for a Temp-to-Hire candidate will be the same as a direct hire (sixty days) and starts the first day as a temporary employee.

Direct Hire Placement Fees
For direct hire full-time placements, the fee will range from 15 - 20%.

To validate your guarantee, payment of the fee is due to The Job Shop within fourteen days of the invoice date. We will screen, test, and send our candidates to your company to be considered for a particular job order. If you hire the candidate for that position or another within your company, or refer that person to another company, within one year starting from the date The Job Shop presents the candidate to you, the fee as described above will apply.

Temporary Rates
Please phone us in the San Francisco area at 415.227.8610 for our competitive temporary rates. If you are not satisfied with a candidate, we will find a replacement within 24 hours or not invoice you for the first day.
