Why Choose LINK For Industrial Hiring

Use LINK To Find The Best Industrial Staffing Candidates

LINK has been in the recruiting industry for 35+ years and has hired thousands of employees. Based on that experience, we created the LINK 9-Step Employee Selection System to assess for certain behaviors to weed out unreliable and undesirable candidates.

In fact, LINK candidates are more thoroughly prescreened than any other blue-collar industrial staffing firm, which is why approximately 33% of industrial applicants don’t make it through our screening process.
