How much will it cost my company?

How do I work with Magellan Search & Staffing to find employees?

Our search and recruitment efforts begin immediately. Magellan Search & Staffing will get the details and requirements of your position so we can send only the most qualified applicants for your needs.

How long will it take to have an employee in our company?

We are committed to sending the most qualified applicants. The time frame for successfully finding an employee will vary based on our current candidate base and your specific needs. You may decide to look at the most qualified applicants and conduct a full interview process, or you may opt to start the qualified candidate immediately, choosing to conduct a working interview instead. At all times, we will work to meet your needs with regard to skills, budget and time frame.

What kind of background checks do you provide?

Every applicant is reference checked based on their work history and a comprehensive list of references provided by the applicant. We have some clients that request a drug screen, driving record screen or criminal background check. Magellan Search & Staffing can provide these services as well as meet any other needs you might have for background or security checks.

What if I am not satisfied with an employee placed by Magellan Search & Staffing?

We realize that not every job is a fit for every person, and sometimes that is not clear until the person is working. Our staffing and recruiting services provide an opportunity for you to see an employee in the work setting and determine if they will be someone you want to hire. If you are not satisfied with an employee, we can replace them. We also offer direct hire guarantee services, which will vary based on the contract for each client.
