Full-time Hire or Direct hire positions are permanent, usually with the benefits. A direct hire position is one in which the client company utilizes the staffing company to seek out the talent, then hires them directly. A candidate offered a direct hire position isn’t an employee of the staffing company, but goes directly on the client company payroll.
In this case, an individual is hired for a temporary period ( usually 6 months ). At the end of the period, the employee might be chosen for full time position based on his work accomplishments. This benefits the job seekers as well as the companies.
