How it works

The Advantage Group recognizes the impact of highly skilled and motivated team members and the importance that corporate culture has on productivity and over-all success. Our business is to identify top performers in their chosen fields, and to match the strongest candidates to organizations where they will thrive in.

The first time we speak, we will communicate with you to understand what it is you are looking for. We will explain what our company process is.  There is no pressure, and no cost to you for any of this.

If both parties agree to move forward, we will begin the process to onboard you to our consideration for employment stage. We will review with you the terms of our employment arrangement, and have you provide your information in a flexible manner.  Health and safety training and any testing that may be required will be completed.

We will perform a cursory review of the information you have provided, and proceed with an informational interview. We want to understand what your credentials are, what experience you have, and get an overall understanding what your goals are for employment opportunities.  You will have a chance to get to know our company processes, and ask any questions you may have.

After completion, our trained staffing professionals will review your information, mark any tests, perform any required reference checks and work with you for any required credentials.

If all the previous steps work out, and both parties agree to enter into the consideration for employment stage, we will activate you into our systems for work opportunities.

This arrangement is built upon open communication. We will communicate with you about open work opportunities if they are suitable to you, and you will communicate with us about your work availability in accordance with our work agreements.  Our goal is to find top talent for all our open positions at clients, and communication is key to making this happen.

When there is a job match that you are qualified for and are interested in, we will connect you with our client contacts.  Every client is unique, so the next steps could be starting work immediately, it could mean an interview with the client themselves, or it could mean more client specific training may be required.  As with all steps, open transparent communication is the key to our success.

When a work assignment is accepted, we expect that you show up for work on time each day, work within the client and our company health and safety rules, maintain required productivity levels and expectations, and keep communication open with our company regarding anything that is occurring in the workplace. Some of our work opportunities have defined beginning and end dates, and some work assignments may extend for longer terms, while even other’s may have the client hire you on directly.  The key is to do your best, remember you were selected from this opportunity for a reason!

Work assignments end for any number of reasons. Assuming the work ended in good faith, we will return you to our active assignment list, and work to find you suitable work opportunities.  Again, communication on both our parts is the key to another successful placement for you.
