Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you find candidates?
JOHNLEONARD’s primary source of quality candidates is referrals. Additionally, candidates are sourced through various job boards, social media platforms (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, etc.) as well as the open web (Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.). JOHNLEONARD also maintains an extensive database of highly qualified candidates.

Do you give volume discounts?

Yes. We have the capacity to submit bid/proposals designed specifically to meet your requirements and budget. We believe that each client has needs unique to their organization’s dynamics. We have a proven track record of successfully submitting winning bids/proposals across a variety of industries and price points.
How are Temporary Staff Representatives paid?
JOHNLEONARD generates weekly payroll and billing in-house. Online time sheets are completed by the Temporary and approved by the client. Approval verifies the hours worked and authorizes release of a paycheck to the Temporary for the work performed. Billing is fully driven by approved time sheets. Specialized billing and/or reports can be provided upon request.
Do you perform skills testing? How accurate are the test results?
Yes, and our test results are very accurate. Using the industry leading skills evaluation system, we can confirm beginner, intermediate, and advanced skill levels of knowledge thereby enhancing our ability to match the most qualified candidate to the job at hand.
Can you guarantee that the Temporary will stay for the duration of their assignment?
Each Temporary Staffing Representative must give a commitment for the full duration of the assignment. In fact, to help motivate our Temporaries to stay through the end of longer term assignments, we build in performance and completion cash bonuses. Certainly changes in circumstance and emergencies can occur; however, JOHNLEONARD is fully equipped to ensure that our clients’ experience little or no disruption if the unexpected happens.
How quickly can JOHNLEONARD fill my open positions?
This obviously depends on a number of factors including whether the need is for a Direct Hire employee or Temporary help, the lead-time for filling the job, and the skill difficulty factor. Regardless, JOHNLEONARD is recognized for delivering timely and effective staffing solutions.
Additionally, our S.W.A.T. service offers emergency help in minutes, not hours. Each morning, skilled proven performers are available to be assigned to a client’s emergency staffing needs.
