Temporary Staffing

With our flexible, temporary staffing solution, you can eliminate overtime, achieve consistent productivity, and gain fast access to workers for last-minute fill-ins, sick leaves and vacation coverage. You can also:

  • Eliminate paperwork hassles. We'll process the payroll and administer workers' compensation.
  • Get answers quickly. We provide a 30-minute callback on all "ASAP" temporary orders.
  • Increase productivity. Get the people you need to complete projects without adding to your overhead.
  • Gain peace of mind. Let us know within 4 hours if the worker is not performing up to your expectations and we will replace that person free of charge. Guaranteed.

Contract Labor

When you need skilled professionals to cover for special projects or long-term absences in your full-time staff, contract labor can help keep your business running, and your staff focused on their work. Dickey Staffing Solutions can find the right skilled tradespersons for your needs.

Temporary-to-Hire Staffing

Test out an employee for a short-term period before making a commitment to hire them on a full-time basis. You can also:

  • Determine whether you really need to hire a new full-time employee.
  • Significantly lower your risk of making a hiring mistake.
  • Spread the cost of a new hire over an extended period of time.
  • Find a specific skill set that you need.
  • Reduce your exposure to unemployment costs.
  • Reduce your exposure to workers' compensation expenses.

Direct Hire Staffing

With our team of experienced recruiters and nationwide database of both active and passive job candidates, we can find a new full-time employee faster, easier, and more cost-effectively. We will:

  • Extensively screen, interview, and test candidates.
  • Verify backgrounds and work histories, as well as check references.
  • Coordinate the interview process.
  • Facilitate the negotiating process.
We also provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If the employee is terminated within 30 calendar days of the starting date, your fee will be fully refunded or we will replace the person at no charge.

On Site Staffing

If you're a high volume temporary staffing user, Dickey can provide an on site solution to handle your staffing function. We can manage the time-consuming tasks of sourcing, screening, interviewing, hiring, and scheduling workers, so you can focus on other priorities.


You can recruit, screen and identify candidates on your own, but save personnel expenses by letting Dickey Staffing handle all of the payroll expenses.
