SDI Staffing is committed to assisting candidates in their job searches. Although we cannot guarantee job placements, we will do our best to consider each candidate for positions which they qualify based on their background and skills in conjunction with what our clients are seeking.
To be considered for any jobs we have available, you must:
- Submit your Resume to our recruiting team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Have gone through an in-depth interview with one of our recruiters.
No, there is no cost to you, the applicant. SDI Staffing fees are paid entirely by our clients.
SDI Staffing cannot guarantee job placement, so there is no definite answer as to when you will start working.
If a position is presented to you by SDI Staffing, you have every option to accept, decline or negotiate. Keep in mind, the in-depth interview conducted by our Hiring Team gives us the information needed to consider you for available jobs. So be sure you are upfront and realistic about your salary requirements, distance for commuting, and types of positions you are interested in.
SDI Staffing understands there are times that your job search may be confidential. We will not contact employers or divulge confidential information without your consent, as we do not want to jeopardize your current employment status.
- Temporary Job: A temporary job is only for a short duration (number of days, weeks, or months) which has the understanding that it will terminate. Temporary jobs can be full-time or part-time hours. Temporary jobs are used to help our clients with their temporary needs, i.e. to fill in for seasonal positions, cover for medical or maternity leaves, or to alleviate regular employees with a larger than normal workload. All associated payroll for temporary jobs is done through SDI Staffing.
- Temp-to-Hire: A temp to hire job is a temporary position that could potentially turn into a regular, full-time position should the client decide to extend an offer of employment once the contract ends. All associated payroll for temp-to-hire jobs are done through SDI Staffing. If an offer of regular, full-time employment is offered and accepted, payroll will then be done through the client.
- Direct Hire: A direct hire job is a position that occurs without a temporary position. Our clients will utilize SDI Staffing to recruit qualified candidates to potentially fill their direct hire job. If the client selects you for a direct hire position, you will be the client’s direct employee from the first day of work. All associated payroll will be handled by the client.
Unemployment benefits provide partial wage replacement to those who are completely unemployed or working less than full-time; are ready and looking for work; and have worked in the last 18 months. If you accept a temporary job, you will be required to report your wages to the Employment Development Department (EDD) and they will supplement the difference, if you are being paid less in the temporary job than what EDD originally awarded you to receive. If your temporary job ends, you will then need to report this to EDD to request continuation of your original unemployment benefit claim. Remember, eligibility for benefits is always based on the reason for unemployment at the time benefits are claimed. So, there are circumstances which can affect your eligibility. If you quit a temporary job or are discharged/terminated for cause, then your unemployment benefits may be affected.
