Employer FAQ's

employers-faqshamrok smYou have questions, we have answers.
  1. What kinds of jobs do you recruit for and place?
At Kennedy we recruit for administrative/clercial,executive, management, sales, and light industrial positions as temporary, direct or long term hires.
   • entry level positions requiring less than 5 years of experience,
   • mid level positions requiring 5-10 years experience, and
   • top level positions requiring more than 10 years experience

2. As an employer, can I have you send me qualified applicants I can hire full time rather than temporarily?
Yes. Our direct hire program reviews applicants to send you for permanent hire. We conduct all pre-qualification, testing, screening, and initial interviews to find the best fit for your needs.

3. What is the 'temp-to-perm' program?
This program is designed for employers who need a long term employee but want to 'try out' that employee before hiring. In our temp-to-perm program, you can evaluate the applicant's performance on the job before hiring as a long term employee.

4. How is the Kennedy Hiring and Dismissal Policy useful to me as an employer?
We take the time intensive burden out of hiring and firing employees.

5. Does Kennedy help with employee payroll in any way?
Kennedy takes care of all the administrative and compliance details for temporary staff, leased staff and temp-to-hire staff. We process the payroll--weekly--offer direct deposit, pay the payroll taxes, file the federal and state employment tax returns, provide unemployment and worker's comp insurances — all of it, and all right here, locally, from our Baltimore offices.

6. Part of our mission is partnering with minority firms. Does your company comply?
Yes,Kennedy Personnel Services is a Certified woman-owned Business headquartered in the heart of Baltimore's Empowerment Zone. Our minority status equates to tax incentives for your business. It also makes us an ideal partner for businesses looking to do business with and around the State of Maryland where minority participation is encouraged.

  • "In our first meeting with Kennedy Personnel, they told us that they wanted to make the task of meeting our MBE goals easer.  And boy, did they!  They are so knowledgeable about how to navigate through the vast paperwork that satisfies an MBE goal.  They have been absolutely delightful from start to finish.  They handle our payroll needs flawlessly, they have been very thorough in their recruiting for some of our staff and on top of that, they return phone calls and emails very quickly.  We couldn't be happier being in business with Kennedy Personnel Services."Trish Baker / Office Manager / Bogman, Inc.
  • "P. Flanigan & Sons had a problem and Kennedy Personnel helped us solve it.  We needed several responsible people that could pass federal background checks to work as Safety Monitors on the secure airfield of BWI-Marshall Airport.  The bulk of our $42 million runway rehabilitation project for the Maryland Aviation Administration would be performed around the clock during a sixty day shutdown of one of the main runways.  Temporary staffing was the right solution.  KPS came through with the top notch people, logistical support, and fair pricing that we needed to succeed."Kevin Mullen / Vice President / P. Flanigan & Sons, Inc.
  • "Kennedy Personnel Services are by far the most professional and efficient staffing service we have used.  Dawn Burch personally supervised multiple searches.  After we found the ideal candidates, she periodically followed up to make sure we were still happy.  Kennedy seems to attract better qualified candidates than their competitors.  They are a pleasure to deal with.  As the need arises, our first call for staffing will go to Dawn and Kennedy Personnel Services."Daniel M. Billig, CAI / A.J. Billig & Co., Auctioneers

They take the time to get to know your organization and your needs and wants in personnel, and tailor their search to find just the right candidate for you.

I can't imagine getting through our staffing needs without Kennedy on my side!" – Kristin Caye Hennig, HR Administrator, Rukert Terminals Corp.
