How am I placed on assignments?
We will call you as assignments come in that fit your skill level. If you are not interested in the position, please let us know at that time. It is much better to refuse an assignment initially than to take the assignment and then call us later to cancel.
When we call you, we will tell you everything you need to know about the assignment to enable you to make a decision as to whether or not you are interested in the position. We will tell you where it is located, how much it pays, the length of the assignment, the hours that you will work, the dress code for the office and the general culture and environment. Once you’ve decided to accept the position, we will tell you the name of the company, and provide directions to the job location.
Feel free to call us once a week when you are not on assignment to let us know that you are still available and looking for work.
What if the job duties change during my assignment or are different when I get there?
If for any reason your job duties are changed or differ from the job description we gave you, give us a call. The change may have a significant impact on your pay rate.
What happens when I am on assignment?
Arrival Call: We will call our client on the morning of your first day to make sure you arrived on time and ready to work.
Quality Call: In the afternoon of your first day, we will call to make sure everything is going well. We want to be certain that you and our client are the right “fit”.
Weekly Quality Check: If this is a long term assignment, we will call on a weekly basis just to check in and make sure everything is still running smoothly.
What happens if I am going to be late for work, or need to call out sick?
Always call the Idea Staffing office if you are running late for work or will be out sick. If you call after hours or early in the morning, please leave us a message. We will call our client and let them know your situation as soon as possible. It is important for you to remember that Idea Staffing is your employer, not our client.
How do I get paid?
You will fill out an Idea Staffing time sheet on a weekly basis. Our weekending date is Sunday. Make sure you fill out your time sheet completely and accurately. (Reference the “Perfect Time Sheet”). Timesheets are due in our office before 10:00AM on Monday following your workweek. If your timesheet is here on Monday, your paycheck will be available Thursday. If your timesheet is not here on Monday, you will not be paid until the time sheet is received and processed the following week.
Time sheets are available for download here. You can also call our office at 904-592-4332 and have one faxed to you.
