Barracuda Staffing & Consulting – A full-service staffing company leveraging creative solutions to improve service delivery model


Hiring for a small business is not an overnight process. Reviewing applications, interviewing candidates and determining salaries take precious time away from a business owner’s regular obligations, which may end up hurting the company in the long run. That’s why some employer's partner with staffing agencies, which take a lot of the time and effort out of the search for candidates by providing workers for open roles. Using a staffing agency isn’t the right choice for every business, but if you’re considering working with one to meet your hiring needs. Staffing agencies often have a level of expertise that far exceeds some employers’ human resources departments. Hiring recruiters, employment specialists and an employment or recruiting manager to supervise staff could require a lengthy recruiting period to find qualified employees. Staffing agencies provide services that rival the best qualified recruiters and employment specialists, usually at a lower cost. Employees of staffing agencies generally have a higher level of expertise related to job knowledge, employment trends and recruitment practices by virtue of continuous placement of employees. They also have industry expertise if they work for staffing agencies that specialize in certain fields, such health care providers.

Barracuda Staffing & Consulting is a temporary and permanent placement personnel agency working with skilled, non-skilled, professional and contract workers in the Industrial, Light Industrial, Engineering, Construction, and Commercial fields. Barracuda Staffing serves the business client by locating qualified employees, screening and initial interviewing and administering all new hire paperwork.  Barracuda Staffing runs payroll and bills the client weekly.
