Frequently Asked Questions
 
Q:  Who pays for your fees?
A:  Our fees are paid by our client companies for whom we recruit the best possible candidates.
 
Q:  What are your fees?
A:  Most recruiters don't want to answer this question on their website.  The reason?  They generally charge anywhere from 20 to 30% of the candidate's first-year salary.  As a specialized recruiting firm serving the HHG industry exclusively, we know that the moving business traditionally has slim margins of profitability.  Understanding this, our goal and focus is to develop a long term relationship with our clients...not gouge them for one or two mega-fee placements.  We are a smaller, specialized firm with substantially lower overhead.  As such, we are able to charge a fee that is both compensatory to us while at the same time being more reasonable to the moving industry.  Our fee is 15% of the candidate's first-year salary. For commissioned sales candidates, we will work with you and negotiate a FLAT FEE arrangement that more often than not results in a total fee that is LESS THAN our standard 15% fee... we don't think that it is fair to charge a percentage fee for sales candidates--After all, it is a lot to ask a hiring authority to pay a substantial up front fee for a sales candidate who may take up to 3 or 4 years to pay for themselves.  This is especially true when you factor in salary, draw, PLUS the recruiter's fee.
 
Our competition belittles our fee structure by claiming that "you get what you pay for".....We don't agree.  As former movers ourselves, we want to provide a service to the industry----not fleece it.
 
Q:  Do you provide your clients with any type of candidate guarantee?
A:  We do, and it's the most competitive candidate guarantee in the industry:  90 Days,  Money Back .  Period.  No confusing 30,60 or prorated 90 day guarantees here.  If our candidate does not remain employed for 90 days from their start date, we refund your ENTIRE fee IN FULL.  We don't keep a percentage of the fee if they make it for only 30 or 60 days...If the candidate walks or is terminated on the 89th day, our refund to you is the same as if they left after the first week:  THE FULL FEE! 

Beware of recruiters who offer you a CANDIDATE REPLACEMENT....This is not a guarantee at all.  Most recruiters who offer this option will only send you their "retread" candidates if their original candidate fails...and save the really good ones for NEW CLIENTS who will pay the NEW FEE!
 
Q:  What companies do you recruit from?
A:  Any company that is NOT already a client of Movers Search Group. While our primary focus is upon finding the best available talent from within the moving business, don't be surprised if we recruit from companies OUTSIDE of the HHG industry. Further, we don't call upon your competitors with whom you have a "gentlemen's agreement" to not solicit each others' employees.  If you prefer, we don't recruit from other agents within your van line system.
 
We are discreet and professional in the conduct of the search on your behalf.  Unlike larger recruiting firms professing to serve the moving industry, we don't assign 2 to 3 recruiters on a search--this results in a duplication of efforts and often leads to a backlash against you from your competitors who are tired of these firms making overlapping calls to their employees.  REMEMBER, our recruiting is done ONLY by former moving industry professionals who know your business.  We don't employ rookie recruiters who come from other fields.
