If you’re looking to hire a new employee for your manufacturing company, it’s important to work with a recruiter who understands the industry. Manufacturing recruiters have the expertise and resources to help you find the best candidates for your business. But before you decide to work with one, there are a few questions you should ask. In this blog post, we will discuss the best questions to ask a manufacturing recruiter before hiring.

What services does the recruiting company offer

First and foremost if you haven’t been able to figure out the type of services the recruiting company offers then that should be your first step. You want to make sure that they are able to help you solve your staffing problems. The company should also be able to provide you with a list of satisfied clients. For example, does the agency specialist in permanent, temporary or seasonal hires?

What is their fee structure?

You will want to ask about the company’s fee structure before you decide to work with them. Most recruiting companies charge a percentage of the salary for the position they are filling. Others may charge a flat fee or an hourly rate. At Campbell Morden we do a monthly billing process. This direct hire process gives you more control and more validity to our services. Although our fees will be initially higher than the traditional method of recruitment billings the recruitment fee will be split into 12 monthly payments. So if a candidate decides to leave the organization anytime within 12 months, we will stop monthly invoicing our customers.

What type of experience do they have in the manufacturing industry

Of course, you’ll want to make sure that the recruitment industry actually has experience in manufacturing. This is especially important if you are looking for a specialized position. Ideally, you want to work with a company that has experience in your industry and can provide you with candidates that meet your needs.

At Campbell Morden, we have over 15 years of experience working with businesses in the manufacturing industry. So we have the knowledge and resources to help you find the best candidates for your business.

What is their success rate in filling manufacturing positions

You’ll also want to ask about the company’s success rate in filling manufacturing positions. This will give you an idea of how effective they are at finding candidates that meet your specific needs. The best recruitment companies should be able to provide you with examples of previous positions they’ve filled and the successes they’ve had.

How long is their recruitment process

Next, you’ll want to know how long and what the process is to fill your job opening. A good recruitment company will have a streamlined process that includes things like screening and interviewing candidates. There should be effective communication throughout the entire process.

So, if you’re looking for a manufacturing recruiter that can help you find the best talent available, be sure to ask these important questions. By working with a company that has extensive experience and a proven track record, you can minimize the time it takes to find the perfect candidate and get them up to speed in your business quickly.
