Client frequently asked questions
Why should I use your service instead of filling the position on my own?
We pride ourselves on the quality of our employees and feel our greatest resource is our past, present and future employees. The screening process for our applicants allows us to best match their skills and training to the positions.
By using the temp-to-hire program with Knoxville Staffing, the hiring risk is out of your hands. If you are not satisfied with an employee, we can replace them, and you have not mad the investment of hiring them on your payroll. We cover workers’ compensation and unemployment costs as well as taking away the stress of recruiting and sorting through applicants for the ones who are qualified. Knoxville Staffing invests in our own employees by providing training for all of our office staff. We can be a resource to you when questions arise about staffing and employment.
Why should I choose a local company instead of calling a national firm?
Large national firms simply do not have the deep community ties or long-term experience that we have. We are dedicated to providing high-quality staffing solutions. We take pride in being a local staffing firm with an in-depth knowledge of the Knoxville area.
