At Kinetic, we work with both our clients and talent

to provide them with the answers to all their questions. Below are some of the frequently asked questions we answer for both clients and talent.

Talent FAQs

DO I GET BENEFITS WHILE I WORK FOR YOU?

Yes. You become eligible for benefits (of which we pay a portion) after you log a certain number of hours. We’ll discuss specifics when you come on board.

I ALREADY KNOW SOMEONE AT YOUR CLIENT’S BUSINESS. CAN YOU STILL HELP ME GET A JOB THERE?

Maybe. Generally speaking, your relationships are yours to keep. We don’t like to step on toes, and we won’t submit you to a hiring manager that you already have a relationship with. So if you see an open job with that person, go ahead and submit your resume yourself. That said, if it’s a large client with many divisions, and we’re working with someone in a different department from your contact, then we can still represent you to our client. With a client that big, chances are the hiring managers in different departments don’t even know each other, so there are no toes to step on.

Do I pay you to place me?

No. We have contracts with our clients, and any fee associated with placing you comes out of their pockets, not yours.

Client FAQs

OUR HR DEPARTMENT REQUIRES BACKGROUND CHECKS ON ALL TALENT COMING IN-HOUSE. DO YOU HANDLE THAT?

Absolutely. We work with an outside group to run background checks when requested. Just let us know what you need to check (for example, employment history only, criminal background, etc.). Once we have the information we need from the talent (and their permission, of course), we’ll handle it confidentially from there.

WE’VE HAD A GREAT EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR FREELANCE TALENT, AND WE’D LIKE TO HIRE THEM AS AN EMPLOYEE. WHAT’S THE NEXT STEP?

That’s wonderful news. All we need from you is: 1) the date you’d like to officially convert our talent, and 2) the salary they’ll be earning. From there, we’ll do the math and the paperwork.

WE FOUND OUR OWN TALENT, BUT THEY NEED TO WORK WITH US THROUGH AN AGENCY. DO YOU HAVE PAYROLL SERVICES?

Yes, we’re happy to help. We can get your talent set up to work for you, through us, at a percentage that will make everyone happy.
