Our process is outlined below:

  1. Clients contact AARS with positions-Temporary, Temporary-to-Hire and Direct Hire that need to be filled.
    Our recruiting strategy is to identify and source the best candidates for our clients. For this to happen, it is important that we take the time to get to know our clients by conducting a business analysis. Once we have a good grasp on what the client needs, we launch a search for highly qualified candidates.
  2. AARS collects and narrows down applicants then reaches out to qualified candidates.
    Utilizing a number of recruiting strategies including our robust database,online resources, and referral network,we begin searching for candidates. Candidates are screened thoroughly for the following: required skills, level of experience, and cultural fit for the client work environment.
  3. Building a 360 degree view of candidates for the position.
    Once we have narrowed down our search AARS conducts comprehensive behavioral based interviews, evaluation testing (if applicable) and any pre-employment requirements such as drug or background checks. Thorough reference checking is complete before we place any candidate on assignment or on a direct hire position.
  4. Placing and compensation of new employees.
    Once our employee’s hiring process is complete, they can start working for our client. Here at AARS we are the employer of record for all temporary and temporary to hire employees and are responsible for all payroll and payroll related costs, including unemployment, and workers compensation insurance.
