Being able to have products created in the United States is very important to some companies. If you are starting a factory to produce American-made items, you need to be sure that you have the right staff to do the jobs that need to be done. Interviewing numerous people for the jobs that you will have available will be very time consuming and take away from the other tasks that you need to accomplish. You can hire an employment agency to help you get the factory workers you need in as short a period of time as possible so you can start production right away. The guide below walks you through a few things the agency will need to know to find the right workers for your factory.
What Is the Age Limit for the Workers?
When interviewing potential candidates for the factory worker positions, the agency needs to know how old the people need to be in order to work in the factory. In some states, someone can start working at the age of 16. While a teenager may be able to do the job, your insurance may require everyone who works in the factory to be over the age of 18 so that they can sign a waiver assuming the risks that come with working in the factory. A 16-year-old cannot be legally bound to a document because they are not 18 years old yet.
What Skills Do the Workers Need?
You need to let the company know if you need workers that have experience in manufacturing or if you are willing to offer training to the workers. If you require experience, you need to provide detailed information to the agency about the experience you require. The agency worker that handles the hiring for you will more than likely not know a lot about factory work so being as detailed as possible will be helpful.
Do Workers Need to Pass a Drug Test?
If your insurance company requires for all workers to be drug free in order to create a safe work environment, you need to let the agency know that in advance. They can handle the drug tests for you so that only candidates who are drug free are sent for final interviews with you.
The agency will also need to know how much you are planning to pay the workers and when you would need them to be available to start. This will ensure that only workers who are willing to work for what you are willing to pay and are able to meet your schedule needs are sent to you for work.
