If the company has to pay you, doesn’t that mean I make less?

Not at all.  The costs for a company to advertise, recruit, interview, screen, test and hire an applicant can range in the thousands of dollars.    Because of our management system Select Temp is able to accomplish this process more efficiently.  Our hire on demand system prevent clients from spending more payroll than his workload requires.  The employer in turn pays us for the money and time saved.
