Anyone been hired through Solomon page temp to perm? How does payment work? They’ve contacted me 3x about a role but I feel like I can’t swallow not having benefits unless I get offered full time. Also getting paid through them seems like it could be sketchy.

Like many big recruiting firms, they’re just trying to fill seats and make money. Be very wary of what they offer you, because it will not be enough money and there’s a high probability the role won’t be a great fit. That’s been my experience at least.

Most likely they will take a cut of your hourly rate. For example, the agency pays $140 an hour and they take $20/hour out, you only see $120/hour. You can ask them what the rate would be and what their cut is. Temp to perm - because the world is unstable right now, not guaranteed to convert to full time. But you can still look for other jobs while you’re freelancing. They’ll probably have a two week notice clause in your contract. Also, I think the agency might be bound contractually to go through that company to recruit you in the future for a set amount of time, but that’s another thing you can ask about.

Thnks for this it’s helpful! They said $40/hr

Temp companies used to be around a lot more in the 90’s. Kelly Temp Services was a big one. I haven’t seen them around lately so that’s pretty interesting. I spent my first year out of college “temping” with big firms to check them out without a commitment and ended up getting offered a permanent job for a big one. I would say to go for it. You can buy your own insurance in the time being. It’s a great opportunity to get behind the scenes at a few different companies and make some connections.

Also keep in mind that the position probably actually pays about 30% more than what the Temp service is paying you. (if you get a job offer). If it’s a big temp firm there isn’t any need to be worried about them paying you, it’s standard.

Hi all! I’m in the search of a remote HRBP role, looking for a company that is willing to pick me up as a new HRBP. I’ve been in the role 4 months, but this company is a disaster.

Prior to this job, I had another offer of HRBP but I didn’t like the interview. Been in the field 6+ years. Let me know if anyone has anything!
