How long does it take to find a suitable worker?
Depending on the job, workers can be on site within 30-60 minutes of contacting Bissell Centre. Distance and weather conditions are the main variables.
What hours apply when hiring workers?
Our workers are available 7 am to 9 pm every day except for statutory holidays.
I’m not able to pick up the employee, are they able to come directly to the job site?
While employers are expected to pick workers up from Bissell Centre or a prearranged meeting point, workers may be given bus tickets when necessary. They may travel to job sites in Edmonton, St. Albert, and Sherwood Park.
For job sites in Spruce Grove, Leduc or Stony Plain, employers must be willing to pick up the worker.
Bissell Centre may assist with transportation, but this is not guaranteed.
What if I have questions or concerns the day of the job?
We have staff on call during working hours if there are any questions or concerns about our workers.
Is there a fee for the placement service?
No, the Employment Services Program is supported by Government of Alberta, Community and Social Services. As such, we are able to offer this program at no cost to the employer.
Does Bissell Centre take a portion of the worker’s salary as commission?
The worker keeps 100% of the salary earned. Bissell Centre does not make commission.
