Top 5 Temporary Work Challenges (and Solu-
If you find yourself working on a temporary basis or
considering it as a way to return to work in 2015, you
will face some challenges that go with this territory.
With the right information and attitude, there are ways
to turn these around instead of being intimidated by
them. Here s the top five challenges that temps face,
as I see them:
Challenge #1 (Pay Level)
This is probably the biggest challenge a temp faces.
Discuss with your staffing service representative the
hourly rate of pay for temps possessing your particular
skills so you will know what your earning potential will
be.Sometimes temps can make more per hour than a
full-timer at the same job. This is because there are
no benefits, payroll taxes, and insurance costs being
paid by the organization where temps are assigned.
These items are arranged and covered through the
staffing service (your actual employer).
If you need to earn more per hour, ask the staffing
service what you can do to increase your pay:
Are there more technical skills or certification that
you need to make a difference in what you can get
Can you pick up weekend or off-hour assignments
that may pay differentials for these non-standard work
Be sure to check with multiple staffing services on
what they pay. Hourly rates may vary, but usually only
slightly. In any event, you don t want to find out later
that the staffing service across the street pays more for
the same job.
Challenge #2 (Lack of Benefits)
Remember, as a temp, the staffing service is your
employer. Find out what the staffing service offers in
the way of benefits to their temporary employees. Things
have changed a lot over the past decade in this area.
It s common now for a staffing service to require
that temps work a certain number of consistent hours
in order to become eligible for their benefit program.
Benefits offered will vary by each staffing service. The
benefits from some staffing services may include paid
vacation or time off, participation in a 401(k) or health
Challenge #3 (Sporadic Work)
The fear of only working assignments that are few
and far between can be handled through a few tactics:
Register with several staffing services (large/national
and small/local) to increase your chances for work.
Ask your staffing service(s) about long term temp
assignments that are available.
Ask your staffing service(s) about any temp-to-perm
(temporary to permanent) job assignments that are
Ask your staffing service(s) if they have any internal
projects or positions available that you may fill.
Ask your staffing service(s) about any hard-to-fill
work assignments they may be working on to see if
you may be just the right person to handle the posi-
Regularly check in about work assignments with any
staffing services you are registered with, and make your
availability known on an ongoing basis.
Make it a point to report back to your rep after every
temp assignment, and give them feedback on the work
you performed and what it was like to work
on the assignment. This provides the staffing
service with firsthand knowledge and is
extremely valuable. It gives them practical, real
world information about their clients, so they
can better understand them.
Sharing this information helps the staffing
service continue to grow their competitive edge
and provide even more service to their clients
- you may help them discover a need they
weren t even aware existed. It also aligns you
as a staffing service "ambassador." When you
help make the staffing service look good, they
will be more inclined to call you for future
Challenge #4 (Keeping Skills Current)
This is an area where you will need to stay
Observe what skills are being used on the
job during your work assignments by others
around you in your field. Talk to co-workers
about what applications and what versions they
are using. How are they staying current? What
websites do they use for references and what
are they reading on a regular basis for their
information? Learn what the trends are while
on the job.
Many staffing services offer online training
and testing, so take advantage of any of these
they provide. Depending on your particular job,
do you need to be certified or take any advanced
courses? Talk to the staffing service rep for
their suggestions on keeping your skill level
and knowledge level current. This is what they
do, so tap into their expertise.
Challenge #5 (Reduced Colleague/Net-
You can feel like an island when you work
as a temp. To counter that, develop your own
set of colleagues and network partners.
Work with your staffing service rep to intro-
duce you to other temps at their service you
can learn from and share information with.
