It is useful to know that labour standards require that an employee who has used a placement agency have the same salary scale as an employee with the same job description in the company where they are hired. The salary scale must be taken into account in certain cases, according to the number of years of work and experience of the person.

Yes, we respect all labour standards with regard to vacations, holidays and sick leave. We ask you to advise us at least two weeks before the requested date so that we can plan for our client’s needs while you are absent. Some companies hiring our employees close down during the holiday period or during the summer. We always offer the accumulated 4%.

That depends on the type of position you are applying for and our clients’ requirements. In several cases, when the job requires specific knowledge or expertise, we will test you so as to complete your job-seeking file.
