We believe in connecting talented, local job seekers with top companies across Central Ontario. Our employees gain valuable work experience and a weekly paycheque while they earn new skills working at new placements.
Working with our team helps to bring our job seekers to the front of the line when new positions become available. Contract-based or temporary positions often result in full-time, permanent positions.
Granted you meet our agency requirements, you will be added to our database as a The Staffing Connection employee. When local work becomes available, these jobs are offered to our employees.
Our staffing process begins with the employees who have most recently called in for available work. If you accept a work placement, you will be given shift details and will be expected to arrive for your scheduled shift.
There are various reasons. Some common ones are: Many of our clients hire us to do their recruitment for them and do not hire direct at all. Other times, the process with the company is very long and the company needs the help more immediately. Also, some candidates who otherwise would qualify are not successful when they apply directly but are successful when they are recruited through The Staffing Connection!
We never charge our employees for working with us! We do not deduct any services or registration fees from your weekly pay cheque.
We do not take any money off of employee wages. It is the clients who pay for our services. It is illegal to deduct money off of wages unless you are the government deducting taxes. If any company is taking money off of your wages they should be reported to the Ministry of Labour.
All of our employees are paid weekly on Fridays. If employees provide us with their Direct Deposit form then we can pay by EFT, otherwise cheques are available at any of our four conveniently-located offices.
There is only 1 reason for employees not to get paid on time: we don’t have approved hours. All hours that are submitted on time each Monday by 10 am will be paid on Friday.
We follow the Public Health guidelines at our offices. Each of our clients have different protocols, so it would depend on what position you qualify for.
This answer depends on the job that you have accepted. This will all be discussed when the job offer is being made and will also be on the information sheet that is provided when you accept a position. Typically the 1 thing that is required for majority of our positions is CSA Approved footwear.
Unfortunately, transportation is something that employees must have on their own. We do have some clients where transportation is provided via an arranged shuttle, but this is on a case-by-case basis.
All of our jobs are in-person at a physical location, typically a factory or warehouse. It is impossible to perform labour duties virtually. We are however, willing to consider candidates out of the region who are moving to this region, but not outside of the Country unless you already have an Open Work Permit.
You do not need to be a Canadian Citizen, but you do have to be legal to work in Canada.
