Temporary: A temporary assignment can range from a couple days to several months depending on the company or project needs. This type of assignment can help an employer catch up on a project that got looked over in a busy season, can ease a seasonal fluctuation in your company, or can fill your need when a permanent employee is out on vacation or leave. Whether it’s short term or long term, temporary assignments can be a great way for an employer to run an efficient business and an excellent way for a job seeker to get experience and show their work ethic.

Temporary-to-Hire: A Temp-to-Hire assignment is when a company has a permanent opening but is wanting Gage to employ a candidate for a temporary time period while they make sure the job and company fit well with the candidate’s skills. These positions can be part time or full time but are intended to eventually turn into a permanent placement at a company.

Direct Hire: A Direct Hire placement is when Gage Personnel recommends and does the initial screening for a candidate that will be directly hired on with a company. Gage helps companies and candidates find the perfect fit for their next permanent position.

For any type of placement, Gage Personnel offers screening of candidates, computer skills testing, and reference checks per the request of clients. Gage Personnel prides itself on timely, efficient placements that fit whatever your need is!
