In a struggling economy, many automation companies are looking for ways to cut overhead while improving productivity. One way to accomplish this is to hire short-term contract or temp-to-hire employees instead of permanent employees. By hiring a contract employee, a company minimizes their workforce overhead and still completes that important automation project on time. Using this model, the company can decide to hire the contract employee at any time during or at the end of a contract – the contract period serves as an evaluation period for both the company and the employee.

When the client company decides on the best candidate, and Top Echelon take care of the rest.

In a recent client testimonial, Wendi-Lynn Hechtman of Calmetrics Company says,
"Recently we took on a very large automation job requiring a "dream team" of Controls Engineers of Allen-Bradley, Siemens and Wonderware talent. Our lead engineer on this project suggested I call Automationtechies to assist in procuring the additional short term Controls Engineers that we needed. I was at first hesitant, however when I spoke with Alan Carty about my technical needs and deadlines, he put me at ease at once. I found him not only hard working and personable to the extreme, he is also a Controls Engineer himself and he really understood what I needed specifically in each engineer. Needless to say he pulled off a Miracle supplying me with Five (5) Controls Engineers from across the USA to meet the customer’s exact needs and wants to pull off a Win-Win for all! Thank you Automationtechies for all your assistance and help!"
