Screening and Hiring Process:

Top Notch Staffing’s application process consists of seven steps prior to an applicant being placed for assignment. These include:

1. Telephone Pre-Screen/Interview

Top Notch Staffing’s telephone interview is our first contact with a potential applicant. Our trained staff uses this opportunity to obtain specific information about an applicant's experience, ability, and personality.

The minimum requirements to apply for work with Top Notch Staffing include communication skills, verifiable work history, appropriate documentation to work in the United States, and the ability to provide a minimum of two work references.

2. Application Completion

If the applicant meets the minimum requirements, they are invited to complete the Top Notch Staffing application, detailing skills, work history, and other pertinent information.

3. In-Person Behavioral Interview

At Top Notch Staffing, we recognize the value of a thorough interview process. A trained member of our team conducts an extensive, one-on-one interview with each applicant.

Our interview process is designed to identify skills, qualifications, personal attributes, work attitude, and career goals. The interview provides Top Notch Staffing with the opportunity to establish a solid employer/employee relationship, this is vital to providing quality-oriented, productive associates.

4. Skills Evaluation

During the personal interview, job skills are identified, and the candidate is directed into a relevant skills evaluation. As a matter of Top Notch Staffing policy, we validate and verify all skills that our candidates claim to have prior to placement with our customers.

Our unique performance evaluation methods ensure quality placements. Each step in our skills evaluation process is specifically designed to assess key areas that ensure productive placements.

In order to ensure that all candidates are evaluated carefully, with objective appraisals, Top Notch Staffing utilizes an Internet-based technology that tests an applicant's skills and knowledge.

All tests are independently validated, and the simulation testing goes deep into the application process, ensuring that associates are qualified for your business needs. Our comprehensive assessment ensures that we only send you associates that are qualified to meet your precise needs.

5. Reference and I-9 Checks (E-Verify)

It is Top Notch Staffing’s commitment to our customers that we obtain two references for each applicant before assigning them to any customer site.

Our staff will request input from the applicant's former employers regarding rehire ability, qualifications, performance, and general character. Reference checks are done in writing or by telephone to assure absolute accuracy of information.

When a skill cannot be accurately tested, we verify job history through telephone interviews with past employers. In addition, Top Notch Staffing utilizes E-Verify, which ensures all applicants are legally eligible to work in the United States.

6. Orientation

All Top Notch Staffing associates receive a thorough orientation prior to being considered for any assignment. The Top Notch Staffing employee orientation includes detailed information on payroll, performance expectations, behavior, benefits, attendance, and more.

In addition, Top Notch Staffing provides a general safety orientation program to each employee as part of our application process. The orientation program covers general safety rules and policies and includes a safety handbook.

Following the program, each employee is given a multiple-choice test on the general safety rules, including a HazCom section, in order to ensure understanding of the material.

"On average, each Top Notch employee Branch interviews over 100 candidates each and every week!”

7. Custom Match

Once we have verified an applicant's qualifications and skills, that candidate is considered available for an assignment.

Our trained staff performs a thorough evaluation of your position requirements including skills, level of proficiency, culture, work environment, and length of the assignment. We are then able to match your requirements with the objectives of our associates.

At Top Notch Staffing, we understand that to truly make an effective match, you must consider a wide range of factors.
