Screening Procedures


As an experienced staffing agency with a history of successful executive searches and job placement in the Providence, RI area, Spectra Temps® Inc. / Tracey & Associates understands the importance of being thorough and diligent throughout every step of the staffing process. That is why we have worked hard to develop and implement very stringent screening procedures. This allows our recruiters to accurately evaluate our candidates strengths and experience and ensure that only serious applicants move through the process before placement. Whether it is for a permanent position or temp staffing, the procedures we utilize are the same.


Here is a brief overview of our staffing process:


Application: Interested job candidates submit their resumes, and they are reviewed by our recruiters before an initial phone interview is conducted.


In-Person Interview: Candidates submit an application with all experience and skills detailed. Our Spectra Tracey staffing agency team then asks them a series of questions based on their unique experience and employment history. Our executive recruiters also note key personality characteristics, appearance and experience on the candidate’s application.


Policies & Procedures / Testing: As part of the in-person interview process, our executive recruiters review all policies and procedure forms with the candidate. They then administer a set of tests, which are customized to specifically to the job. Testing may include: word processing and data entry. In addition, all Federal W-4 and I-9 forms are submitted with two forms of valid identification as required by law. The candidate’s information is then immediately entered into our “Staff Info” database.


Candidate Placement: When a job order comes in with specific criteria that matches a candidate in our database, the candidate is contacted and presented with all the job information. They are then given the opportunity to accept an interview if they are interested. At that time our personnel agency staff conducts a telephone reference check. The candidate is then prepped prior to the interview and debriefed after the interview. Spectra Temps® Inc. / Tracey & Associates  also conducts drug testing and credit checks upon request and at no charge, and we provide an employee orientation prior to beginning the new assignment or temp staffing position.
