Industrial Recruiting FAQ
We are a recruiting firm, meaning we focus on finding permanent employees for our clients.
Staffing firms focus on providing temporary or contract employees for their clients. We are not a staffing firm because we do not work with clients who are seeking to fill temporary or contract positions.
We specialize in supporting manufacturers and industrial companies in the search for their area's top talent. We provide permanent placement recruitment services for industrial roles, ranging from production to professional.
A direct hire search is the traditional process of finding top talent. Our direct hire offering entails a percentage-based fee (a flat fee can be considered) and a guarantee around the retention timeline of the candidate. The percentage and guarantee vary based on the type of role being filled. This process allows us to find qualified candidates to fit the specific needs of our clients. Our recruiters will seamlessly complement your organization's internal hiring process to deliver you quality applicants.
The purpose of our Direct Staffing model is to ease your internal team’s administrative burden around staffing. This strategy allows you to hire your preferred candidate directly onto your payroll from day one while paying a spread-out placement fee over the first 90 days of a new team member's employment. If a referred candidate does not work out over their 90-day probationary period, billing for that candidate is stopped.
RBO stands for Rust Belt Outsourcing. This customizable model allows us to manage and execute your full (or partial) internal hiring process from start to finish. By outsourcing the management and execution of your recruitment process, we can save your company time, effort, and resources, while implementing best practices in your organization.
