Q: What are the payroll deadlines?
A: You will get a Timesheet from us for each week that you work. You need to record your hours on a daily basis then calculate the total hours to the nearest quarter hour at the end of the week. It is essential that you get the Timesheet signed by the client. We need your signed Timesheet in to our Wakefield office on a Monday morning no later than 10am in order to process your wage into the bank by Friday. It is your responsibility to get the Timesheet to us by the deadline. If for any reason you don't receive a Timesheet, please either ring the office or go onto our website at www.firstchoice-uk.com to download one.
Q: When will I get paid?
A: You will be paid one week in arrears on a Friday, directly into your bank account via BACS.
Q: When will I receive my payslip?
A: Wage slips will be send no later than 5pm on Wednesdays via e-mail, unless your have specifically requested a posted payslip. In this case you will receive a printed copy no later than Friday. It is important that you keep your wage slips in a safe place; you may require the information on them at a later date. Unfortunately there is a charge for the production of duplicate payslips.
Q: Do I have to give notice when I intend to leave?
A: You are working under a Contract for Services and as such are not required to give any notice although it would be courteous to do so, in order that we are able to complete final paperwork with your last wage.
Q: Do I have to pay you to find me a job?
A: Absolutely not - our services to you are completely free of charge. In fact all you have to do is come in to see us, get registered (following a face to face interview) and then we endeavour to find you work - easy!
Q: Why should I use an agency to find me a Job?
A: These days most companies use the services of a recruitment agency to fill their jobs - be temporary or permanent, we will have a very varied selection of positions to fill. We have long standing relationships with our clients so much so that in most cases they trust and value the candidates we put forward so you don't even have to go for an interview.
Q: I applied for a position through your website or a job board - what happens next?
A: We look at all CV's to find the very best candidates for our clients and find that perfect job for you. If your CV shows us that you have the right skills, experience and attributes then we will get in touch with you (phone, email, text) and invite you in for an interview with us.
Q: I sent my CV to you and I have not heard back yet?
A: As you can imagine we receive loads of CV's every day and whilst we try to respond to every CV, sometimes it is just impossible due to the volume of CV's. If you have not heard from us within a few days then it is likely that you have not been shortlisted. However, please give us a call and we can talk you through why you may have not made that shortlist.
