Residential Construction Staffing FAQs

Does Tradesmen provide both skilled and unskilled contingent workers?
Yes. Our primary focus is providing tenured, skilled journeyman-level and apprentice-level trades ranging from rough and finish carpenters, HVAC technicians and drywall hangers to electricians, plumbers and more. At your request, we will provide helpers and general laborers to support your needs.
How does Tradesmen deliver skilled residential construction workers faster and at greater fill rates than other staffing firms?
We’ve been recruiting and retaining proven residential construction workers—from carpenters to plumbers to electricians and more—for nearly 30 years. Our massive database mitigates labor shortage challenges.
Other staffing resources rely on the same pool of local skilled workers. Depending on your project’s size, labor needs and deadline, we can source experienced craftworkers through our regional employee databases and mobilize specific trades with talent beyond what is available locally. We help you determine how to do so cost effectively.
Tradesmen employs nearly 200 local recruiters who vet, onboard and retain our skilled residential construction workforce. They’re supported by our National Recruiting Center, a centralized team of trade-specific and specialized recruiters who support local orders from one to dozens.
How does Tradesmen ensure a more reliable and experienced trade professional?
We constantly replace lower-level employees with more skilled, tenured trades. Every Tradesmen International employee completes a stringent vetting process that includes in-person or virtual face-to-face interviews and skills testing. Client satisfaction surveys are studied, per employee, to ensure our trades exceed client expectations.
How does Tradesmen work with site management or HR teams?
A local service professional is assigned to your account and is expected to understand your business and how you need to be serviced. Each service professional is available 24/7 and is responsible for ensuring you are fully satisfied with every contingent employee who is mobilized to your job site.
What ensures Tradesmen’s greater order fill rate and high-quality employee?
Decades of experience show that, if clients give us a 4–5 working-day notice of their trade needs, our order fill rate is unequalled in the industry for providing proven trades on the day of request. Of course, we support urgent overnight requests all the time, and do so efficiently and with accuracy.
What strategy do your other residential construction clients use to ensure high satisfaction levels?
At the request of many clients, we attend their labor planning sessions. This gives our team additional time to source our database, and to determine which/when employees are coming off other client projects. As necessary, on our dime, we blanket the market with online job postings and through other channels, to attract and onboard trade candidates with specific skill sets and certifications that make them a high-caliber staffing option for homebuilders.
