We are transparent with our pricing before beginning a search so that we can focus on quickly finding your team the best possible candidate.

How long will it take to hire an employee?

We’re committed to finding you the right talent as fast as possible! The time frame to hire will vary based on your specific needs for the position, but since professionals in our network are pre-evaluated, we can usually deliver candidates immediately for you to review and interview. Temporary and project consultants can start in as little as 24 business hours!

What is the candidate placement process?

A member of our expert staffing team will start by speaking or meeting with you to get a clear understanding of your needs and requirements for the role. We will also ask you to provide a job description or will assist you in creating one. We will then source and search our proprietary database and job boards to find you top qualified candidates. They will be pre-screened and interviewed first by our team to ensure they are the right fit before being submitted to you for review.

Do you perform background or reference checks?

Yes, all of our candidates and consultants must complete a criminal and credit background check and provide a list of references which will be verified by a member of our team.

What if I am not satisfied with an employee placed by Cordia Resources?

We realize that sometimes it is not clear until the person is working in the position whether it is truly the right fit, for both your company and the professional. We offer a 90-day guarantee, so if you are not satisfied with an employee, we will work with you to replace the person or provide a full refund of the fee.

Can I hire a candidate for a trial period?

Our temporary-to-hire staffing solution provides an opportunity for you to place an employee on a project basis to determine if they will be the right permanent fit. If you are happy and satisfied with the candidate, then you have the opportunity to pay a conversion fee and add them to your team full time!
