How do you screen candidates?
Our recruiters interview each potential Randstad Technologies consultant prior to referring him or her to any of our clients. This is a key step in evaluating the candidates technical abilities and business knowledge, as well as his or her professionalism, communication skills, and interpersonal skills. As part of the in-house interview process, each applicant fills out a comprehensive skills questionnaire and submits a current resume that is parsed into our database and immediately matched against current requirements. We use this interview to better understand the individual’s technical experience, skill level, and work ethic, so that we place the candidate in the job best suited to his or her background. We perform customized technical testing, background checks, and drug testing upon client request.
What is the average response time a customer can expect when requesting resources for a given requirement?
Randstad Technologies guarantees that every candidate submitted is pre-qualified with regards to available start time, available interview times, travel requirements, and rate. We can submit several qualified candidates within 24-48 hours.
Do you offer background & drug testing services?
Randstad Technologies offers a variety of background checks including criminal, social security tracking, education verification, employment verification, professional licenses and certifications. Upon obtaining candidate approval these checks are performed by a specialty firm in a confidential and professional manner. We have also partnered with one of the top drug testing vendors in the country to offer drug testing upon client request.
I don't see an office in the city where I am located. Does that mean you can't help me?
Absolutely Not. Randstad Technologies has a National Division, which specializes in filling needs in every city across the U.S. where we have not yet established a local presence. All company offices utilize a standard service delivery model to guarantee that you will experience the same Randstad Technologies quality and reliability throughout our organization.

What kind of invoicing can I expect?
Randstad Technologies handles all billing and payroll functions internally. We are able to generate invoices that accommodate our customers’ individual requirements. For example, invoices can be generated by department or for the entire company on a weekly basis and are net due upon receipt. Additionally, multiple employees may be combined on one invoice or billed separately. Invoices are always accompanied by signed timecards. If a company has specific needs that do not fit within our standard billing process, Randstad Technologies will try to accommodate those needs.
Randstad Technologies also offers expanded EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) services, which include both electronic billing and electronic payment options. These services reduce data keying, eliminate paper, and improve accuracy, resulting in cost efficiencies and improved customer service. Many of our clients already employ some form of EDI processing. Sapphire can utilize most systems on the market to exchange files with our clients, and we can implement a trading partner relationship based on the client specifications for transaction layouts, transaction types, and network connections.
