Our Commitment to Process and Quality

We’re focused on delivering a positive experience and strong results, all driven by expertise. Our six-step process is how we get quality candidates for every placement, and why our clients form long-term partnerships with us.

Step 1

Behavioral Assessment

Our candidates undergo a pre-employment behavior assessment. This allows you to see if they will be a good fit for your organization.

Step 2

Skills Assessment

Each candidate completes our SMART (Skills Matrix Assessing Real Talent) testing process to verify their skills.

Step 3

Behavioral Interview

This process measures past performance, attitude, behavior, attendance, etc. to predict future performance.

Step 4


Our candidates complete orientation and training that includes safety and ergonomics.

Step 5


The SmartTalent Verification Information System verifies eligibility of all newly hired employees.

Step 6

Background Check

Selected candidates undergo client-specific verifications including reference checks, DMV, drug screening, and criminal background checks.
