How long have they been on a hiring freeze? I thought they were adding on to their building with more jobs? I guess that just means new temps instead of hires.

Since the end of summer. They have temps right now and when the new building is finished they will hire 50 of them on.
Cool

When is the new building supposed to be finished?

I had always thought they hired on pretty quick. I guess they are like everyone else and you have to work there for years to get hired on.

That new addition is still far in the future. At the moment, they're waiting on a signature from the land owner to approve the addition. There's quite a bit of paperwork left before it can even be approved, and even then they will have to move a swamp to build it. I've heard they're already trying to plan around the possibility that they won't be allowed to build it.

Sounds like it is best to avoid Colinx as you won't get hired in years then. Especially since they have been on a hiring freeze since the summer and plan to hire 50 of the temps they already have when the new building is completed that doesn't sound like will be completed till a year or more if ever. So if you are new, then you are looking at a couple of years at minimum to get hired on if you aren't already sent back before then.

It would be nice if these places would use the temp service to try out new help for a few months before they take the time to hire them instead of using them for years since they don't have to give benefits. The best thing would be if the temp agencies were done away with and these places had to hire off the street instead. The only reason no one else uses the temp agency is because non-factory jobs pay the same as what the temp agency pays. So, they can't get their cut of the employees pay.

I guess that report that they are on a hiring freeze for the past half year isn't true if they are fixing to hire temps on. It is hard to get hired on at the places that only hire every few years as temps are usually the first to go, so most are usually gone by the year or 2 year mark.

Actually, they have been on a hiring freeze for a good while. To the best of my recollection, this will be the first time anyone has been hired in since summer, temp or otherwise. They rarely hire on outside of the temps; I can only remember them doing so twice, and one of those times was this past summer. Thats not to say that temps aren't getting a bum deal; I agree that they shouldn't have to wait so long to be hired in. The fact still remains, however, that there has been a hiring freeze since about last July. Prior to the first half of last year, there was another hiring freeze that lasted about a year or more.
Well

How long does it usually take to get hired on at Colinx? I know when places hire, they don't usually hire all the temps. Just a small percentage get hired at a time when they do hire.

Sadly, I have to say that varies widely. I've seen some temps hang on for a year or more before being hired on, while I've seen a few only wait a few months. It seems to be more a matter of luck than anything; if you're a hard worker AND just happen to be lucky enough to have been there a few months when they're hiring, then you might get on. Those who do get hired on are recommended based on how long they've been there AND how hard they work, so dedication to the job is about the only thing you can do to increase your chances. I just hate to see so many have to wait so long.
Funny

I guess that is still better than other places that usually takes 2+ years to get hired on. And some of those people have to come back and start over during that time who get caught up in a large group who gets sent back cause they were there at the wrong time.

Don't spend your time going to work for Colinx. They hire temps but let them go for "made up" reasons a week before they are vested in the company for 401k matching. It's a scam they've been running since they came here. They hire a small percentage of full time people and keep them till the cows come home (look at their office staff...literally COWS) and the rest of the workers are "temps that we promise to hire long term, no really, we promise!). Cumberland County should cut off all their little favors to them and send them packing somewhere else. And for that old hag that works in HR? She's blowin' em all. Nastiest skank this town has ever seen.

Yes, colinx is getting sued! It has nothing to do with black people denied work! It is about taking a stand! The EEOC is for a lot of situations when you are wronged in the work place! And I was wronged! Colinx needs to follow their own rules! When you go to h.r. you think they would do something. Not the case go to h.r. and you have bought yourself a one way ticket out of there! No matter how long you worked there! How many people out there think they treat you right? Temp or fulltime?

Sounds like sour grapes to me. What did you do to get fired? Oh, don't tell me, it wasn't your fault. You didn't do anything wrong.
