"I started with Prodigy about 31/2 years ago. When I went in the first time I was quite nervous. They made me feel comfortable and assisted me with everything I had to do. Since then it has been a wonderful agency to work. Everyone here is very helpful and willing to help with all associates. Prodigy onsite reps are very approachable and easy to speak with. It is a great agency to work for."

- What are my rights as a temporary worker?

As a temporary worker, you’ll still have the right to minimum wage, holiday pay, breaks, etc.
- What happens after I register online?
You will then come into your local branch, have a behavioral based interview so we are able to find you a great job that is suitable to your skill set. Once our team of expert recruiters have secured you an assignment you will be given all pertinent information for the job to assist you being successful in the role.
- How long do assignments last?
The length of temporary assignments is dependent on the client’s needs. You could work for a few days or you could work for several months; or anything in between. It depends on the work that needs to be done. Generally, temporary positions last one to three months.
The great thing about Prodigy Personnel is we are able to place associates at different client sites if the demand is not as high at another. We will work with you to suit your needs and availability!
- Is there a possibility of temp work assignment turning into permanent work?
Many of our placements can be temp-to-perm: you begin on a temporary assignment but are hired as a permanent employee if you perform well during the temporary phase. Once you’re on the job as a temp, the employer gets a chance to see you shine. Don’t be surprised if what started out as a week’s assignment turns into a permanent job offer. When that time comes, you’ll know if this is a company that you want to stay with long-term. You don’t have to accept the offer but if you do, be sure to let the temp agency know.
- Will the temporary staffing agency take a cut of my pay cheque?
NO! At Prodigy Personnel you are part of our team, we do not take any money in up-front costs or off your pay cheque. We get paid by our clients that engage in our services, not our workers.
- Why do I have to come in to register?
At Prodigy Personnel we make sure everyone gets an in person behavioral based interview so we can ensure we place you into the best suitable role for you. This makes us aware of your skills and qualifications and lets us understand you as a person. It also helps us to have a personal connection with you as we feel it is important to know the people that work with us!
- What happens if I don’t feel a job is for me?
At Prodigy Personnel we have two sets of customers: our clients and our associates. Both customers are very important and we want you to be happy with the job opportunities we present you. The beauty of working with a staffing agency is it gives you an opportunity to try different positions out. If one isn't the right fit, reach out to us and we can work with you to find that perfect job.
