How will I get paid?

When am I eligible for Vacation?
For every 1500 hours worked in the last 12 months, employees earn 5 days paid time off. Your Paid Time Off pay will equal your average weekly earnings during the year in which the vacation was earned (total earnings divided by 52 weeks).
When do I get Holiday Pay and for Which holidays
People 2.0 recognizes the six major national holidays: New Years Day (Jan. 1), Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. If you have completed 1,200 work hours within the last 36 weeks without interruption (which means without missing more than five (5) consecutive days of work), and you work the days you are scheduled to work immediately before and after the holiday, you will automatically be paid for these holidays.
How am I notified if my assignment ends?
Your recruiter will contact you.
How do I find out about new opportunities?
Check the website for new opportunities.
How should I let Hiregy know I am available TO work?
Please email or call every week to let Hiregy know that you are available to work.
What if I get hurt on an assignment?
If you are injured on the job, report the incident to the Hiregy office immediately at 813-449-4800, even if the injury is minor. Please Note: Reporting an incident to a client supervisor on the job is not enough, you have to report it to a Hiregy representative. At that time Hiregy will direct you to a People 2.0 Preferred Provider for treatment if required. If you have any questions, please ask a Hiregy representative.
What should I wear to an interview?
Generally, it’s a good idea to wear a suit for a job interview. Go with something simple, in a neutral tone. The more conservative your field is, the more conservative your suit should be. For example, if you’re applying for a job in an investment firm, go with a navy blue or dark gray suit. If you are applying for a job working on a warehouse floor, you will look out of place wearing a formal suit. Keeping that in mind, dress a little better than you would for a day at work and make sure your clothes are neat and clean. Again, follow the rule of dressing better for the interview than you would for a typical day at the office.
What should I wear on my first day of an assignment?
For your first day, it’s OK to wear a suit. Then you can gauge how other employees dress and plan for the rest of the week. On your first day, ask your supervisor to review guidelines on appropriate dress and grooming for the workplace.
What do I do if I am sick or have an emergency where I can not make it into work?
Always contact Hiregy if you are going to be late or not going into work on a scheduled day. Hiregy will contact your supervisor. Direct phone numbers for Hiregy staff members can be found in the About Us section of this site.
What should I do if I do not like my assignment?
