Metis's 12 Step Process is the result of extensive experience and success in the staffing and services industry. The process has been defined and refined over numerous years and has emerged at the forefront of the staffing and services industry.

  1. Identify the right Candidate
  2. Utilize all resources available to Metis

  3. Complete Prescreen Form
  4. Qualified candidates are chosen from Metis’s database comprised of over 10,000 candidates. Typically done over the phone, the candidate is asked a series of questions to gain an understanding of the individual’s technical qualifications, level of interest in a career change, current salary, future salary expectations, availability, etc. If the candidate fits Metis’s profile, the process continues.

  5. Interoffice Interview
  6. If the candidate is local, they are scheduled for an onsite interview with Metis. Additional questions are asked to confirm previous information and to gather further information pertaining to the candidate’s background. Interpersonal and communication skills, degree of professionalism, and future goals are also reviewed to verify whether the individual will measure up to Metis’s profile. Other Metis employees get a chance to meet the candidate as well.

  7. Technical Evaluation
  8. Based on the level of experience, Metis determines the best option to check the candidate's technical abilities.
    The options are:
    (A) An online standardized test that measures the candidate’s skills.
    (B) A person-to-person conversation with a Senior Technical Consultant that is qualified to gauge the candidate's technical
    qualifications.

  9. Reference Check
  10. A candidate must provide four references. Traditionally, at least two are from supervisors and two are from co-workers. Metis evaluates work ethic, teamwork, and technical strengths.

  11. Resume Submittal
  12. Metis will review the resume with the candidate and then incorporate it into Metis's format. The candidate is briefed on all possible assignments and then the resume is submitted to customers where there is a match.

  13. Client Interview
  14. Metis prepares the candidate for the customer interview. The job requirements are discussed, the customer's environment is reviewed, all the candidate’s needs are covered including personality tips, etc. The candidate is instructed to contact Metis immediately following the interview.

  15. Candidate Offer
  16. Upon receipt of acceptance from the customer, Metis contacts the candidate, reviews all information and makes the offer.

  17. Drug/Background Check
  18. If the customer requests, Metis will ensure a drug and background check are completed on the candidate.

  19. Close Down
  20. Once the candidate accepts the position and the drug and background checks are completed, Metis will arrange a start date by communicating with both the customer and candidate.

  21. Maintenance
  22. It is Metis responsibility to ensure the candidate is meeting the customer's expectations. Metis will prepare the candidate for their assignment prior to their start date. From that point on, Metis will periodically touch base with the candidate and customer to ensure expectations are being met from both the customer's and candidate's perspectives.

  23. Notice of End Date
  24. The customer will notify Metis of the candidate's end date. At that time, the candidate will be remarketed.
