Answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for Consultants.

Working Through A Staffing Agency

What are the benefits of working through a staffing agency?

You’re not alone

Looking for work is a full-time job in itself. Instead of spending hours job hunting alone, when you work with a staffing agency, the opportunities come to you! DAHL has a large network of clients hiring for a variety of positions, and our recruiters work hard to match you with a job that fits your skill set, earning needs, and schedule.

At DAHL, “It’s the People!”

Our purpose is to positively impact people’s lives through employment. DAHL has been in business for over 25 years and our recruiters are experts at hiring talented individuals for a variety of industries and positions. We know the job market, and we have the connections. Placing great people into great jobs is our mission, and it’s been a life-changing one for our consultants through the years.

Is there a fee charged to candidates?

No; DAHL’s staffing and recruiting services are 100% free to candidates or consultants.

A bridge to permanent employment.
Working with a staffing agency can be a bridge to permanent employment, and the potential for securing a permanent position is a key reason some people seek contract work.
Contract employment allows you to work when and where you choose. You can work full time or part time, take a summer off, work just three or four days a week, and benefit from a variety of options. You can even fit your work hours around another job or a class schedule. Working with a staffing agency also allows you to experience a variety of industries, companies, and careers you might never have thought of trying—without a long-term commitment.

How old do you have to be to apply for work?

You must be at least 16 years old to apply in Minnesota. (Laws in other states vary.) We have limited job opportunities available for employees under age 18 due to safety regulations and legal requirements at client companies.

What can I expect after I apply?

Once you’ve successfully applied and your profile matches a job opening, a DAHL representative may reach out to you via email or phone. At that point, you may be screened and interviewed to better determine your skills and work experience, earning needs, and schedule availability, as well as discuss available employment opportunities.

Contract Work

Why should I consider contract work?

For individuals looking to supplement their income or have hectic schedules, contract work can be a great solution. Contract work could also provide a bridge to regular, full-time employment. You can use it as an opportunity to try out a prospective employer/workplace and demonstrate your skills for the position. This type of employment can also provide a flexible work schedule to help you better manage a healthy work-life balance. In fact, 85% of staffing employees surveyed by the American Staffing Association in 2014 said work flexibility was highly important, and a top reason for pursuing contract work.


Does DAHL offer benefits to consultants?

Yes; we’re able to offer a competitive benefits package to all of our full-time W2 consultants including medical insurance, dental insurance, life insurance, (401k) retirement savings, direct deposit and an employee referral rewards program.
