We’re Relationship People

the hire difference

Our Staffing Coordinators take the time to get to know each candidate. You can depend on us to send you only the best, most qualified employees. Our detailed process is as follows:

Phone Call: Each applicant who meets our qualifications is pre-screened with a questionnaire and, if qualified, scheduled for an Interview.

Interview: All applicants are interviewed in person at a :hire office. We learn about a candidate’s background and experience during the interview process. We further assess their strengths, and go over the job benefits and expectations.

Screening: Our screening process includes undergoing background and reference checks, and a drug screen (if necessary for the position). All onboarding and payroll paperwork is completed in-office.

Get Working!: We place employees in positions that will meet their needs, as well as the needs of our clients. Taking time to answer their questions and supply important information is our priority. Staff provide driving directions, parking info, and who to ask for upon arrival. This allows them to feel confident and prepared on their first day.

Check-In: For us, our relationship with our employees doesn’t end once they walk out our doors. At :hire follow up with them during the first days of their work assignment. We ensure the position is a good fit and answer any questions that may have come up. We are always available as a resource. Each employee has a designated consultant that stays connected with them during their journey with us.

A personal approach

When first starting :hire, then Reliable Staffing Services, Larry Kidd, CEO & President, created it out of necessity. Despite working with well-regarded staffing firms, he had a tough time finding just the right talent for his companies. So, along with the company’s Chief Financial Officer, Melissa Armstrong, they took matters into their own hands and started a new talent solutions company based on their own rigorous needs and standards.

Our culture is very much down-to-earth. Thanks to our energetic team and modern processes, we can forge personal connections and create lasting impacts in our community. We’ve built a strong network of local companies through this personal approach. It allows us to offer a versatile catalog of jobs and ensures that we have something for everyone.

Keeping it at the Heart of It All. We have almost two decades of experience in Central & Southern Ohio. We know the warehousing, logistics, and office markets in and out.

:hire has been bringing great people and great companies together for more than fifteen years. With a robust list of client company partners and an ever-improving applicant database, we’re able to expertly match the perfect candidate with the perfect position, quickly and efficiently. We provide flexible temporary, temp-to-hire, and direct placement options to fit every need. We have an experienced team ready to offer guidance and support.
