There is not an exact answer to this question. The timeframe for successfully finding an employee for you is going to vary based on our current employee base and the specific need of the position and skill set you require. We are committed to sending only the most qualified applicants and will not sacrifice quality. You may decide to look at the most qualified applicants and conduct an interview, or we can fill a position based on the qualifications you provide.

Each applicant we consider for your team will undergo a nationwide criminal background search. We consider applicants with criminal backgrounds based on the nature and gravity of the offense, time passed, and nature of the job in question. Convictions will not necessarily bar an applicant’s employment. Also, applicants may be asked to conduct a drug screen as part of the placement process.

Our screening process is 100% flexible to meet your needs as a hiring manager – drug screening, reference check feedback, driving records, and specific skills testing are all available upon request. Your Meador team will work with you to put a strategic testing and hiring plan in place.

Call us today for more information about the screening we offer!

While this does not happen often, we do realize that not every job is a fit for every person, and sometimes that is not clear until the person is working in the role. Our temp-to-hire program provides an opportunity for you to see an employee in the work setting and determine if that employee is a good fit for permanent hire. If you are not satisfied with an employee, we can replace them. We also offer direct placement services; our guarantees vary based on the contract for each client and will be communicated to you at the start of any engagement.
