Aunt Annís In-House Staffing requires all candidates to complete a rigorous pre-screening, personal interview, reference verification and independent background check process.

Upon completion of the interview, the candidateís references are checked by phone. You will be provided with detailed reference summaries for review.

Additional background checks are performed by an independent firm. As there are fees involved for these background checks, they are conducted after a job offer has been made and accepted. Additional background checks include credit checks, civil and criminal court record checks, driving record check and social security verification. In California, the Trustline register is also a requirement.

How do I know if the person I hire is the right person for the job?

The ďWorking Trial InterviewĒ gives you the opportunity to confirm your decision.

When you list your job opening with us, your consultant will spend time formulating a job description, the required personality profile to compliment the household, preferred experience and other details. We will identify and present appropriate candidates for your consideration.

After many years of placement we have found that the execution of the working trial has been the best indicator of success for both employer and employee. As part of the pre-employment conditions, candidates who are considered ďidealĒ for the job are offered the job based on successful completion of a working trial. The following is the guidelines for the Trial Working Interview.

Working Trial Interview: The employer/client/ clients representative must agree to pay a previously agreed upon salary to any candidate who accepts an offer of employment and agrees to work for the employer the suggested 2 to 5 day working trial. The employer/client/clients representative is required to pay a previously agreed upon salary for the time a candidate works during their trial working interview.

Aunt Annís In-House Staffing will waive our referral fee for a period up to 5 days. Any time worked by the candidate after the 5 day trial period will be billed according to Aunt Annís In-House Staffing referral fee schedule. All candidates are to be paid a previously agreed upon salary at the conclusion of their working trial.
