  • The hourly rate
  • The name of the person to whom you report
  • The proper dress code
  • How you will track your hours
  • Staffing Alternatives' telephone number (if you are going to be late for your assignment or have any emergency or illness that prevents you from going to work, you must call Staffing Alternatives prior to the start of the assignment so we may relay this information to our client. All of our offices have after hours call centers, so you can leave a message at any time day or night).

While on assignment:

  • Dress appropriately for each assignment. Your Staffing Alternatives’ Representative will guide you on what to wear, but when in doubt always dress more conservatively.

  • Do not use the clients’ equipment (phone, computer, copier, etc) for personal use.
  • Do not use your cell phone while you are working. If you must make a personal call, do so during a break or lunch.

Remember, when you accept an assignment, you will be making a commitment that you will work for the duration of the assignment.

When your assignment ends:

  • Contact your Staffing Alternatives' Representative to update your availability for work. Also, if you have changed your telephone number or e-mail address let us know that too. We will make every effort to place you on another assignment that matches your skills, experience and qualifications.

Your Wages

Unless you are notified otherwise, you will be paid an hourly wage for each assignment, determined by the assignment requirements, your skills and the wage rates in your local area. For this reason, your wage may vary from job to job. Your Staffing Alternatives’ Representative will tell you how much you will be paid for each assignment prior to you accepting the assignment.

Your Payroll Taxes

Staffing Alternatives will deduct only those taxes required by law—Federal, State and City withholding taxes as well as Social Security and forward these tax amounts to the proper taxing authority.
