When I am on assignment who employs me?
Pronel Personnel employs you. It is important, however, to note that the nature of our business is such that we cannot guarantee the length of assignments as each assignment differs according to our clients needs.
How much does it cost to register with Pronel?
It is free to leave your CV with Pronel.
What happens to my CV once submitted to Pronel?
Pronel will then search for vacancies available through its clientele. If your CV suits the requirements of the vacancy, Pronel promotes you as a preferred candidate for the job.
How long will it take before I am offered a temporary job?
You will only be offered an assignment if a vacancy arises in your applied field. As Pronel can not predict when these vacancies shall arise, the time it will take for you to be offered a position is indefinite. However, if such a vacancy does arise, Pronel will be quick to inform you.
When I am on assignment how will I be paid?
When you are on an assignment for Pronel, you will record your daily hours on a weekly timesheet. This timesheet is handed in to your consultant by the Monday following week in which you have worked. Payment will be calculated based on the number of hours you have worked multiplied by your hourly rate. Statutory deductions (PAYE, SITE tax and UIF) will be made. Where applicable, contributions will be rendered to any relevant industrial council. You will be paid by cheque or electronic bank transfer on each Friday following the week in which you have worked. Should you choose to be paid by cheque, it will be uncrossed. Therefore it is vital that you take good care of your cheque as should it be lost, anyone could cash it.
What will my hourly rate be?
Hourly rates vary with each assignment, depending on the skills required by the client on a specific assignment. Remember your rate is confidential and may be discussed only with your consultant.
What about overtime?
It is part of your service condition to work overtime as and when directed to do so by the client. The overtime limits and remuneration as dictated by employment legislation from time to time will be adhered to. However should the need to work overtime arise, please contact your consultant immediately, so that optimum wage conditions can be negotiated
How do I fill in a timesheet?
You will complete a timesheet for each assignment. Each week you will fill in a separate time sheet. It is important that both you and the client sign the timesheet. Wager cannot be paid if this is not done. Please write clearly and use your CORRECT NAME (no abbreviations or nicknames). ALL timesheets must be handed in by no later than 09h00 on Monday, if you wish to be paid on the Friday of that week.
How do I organize payment by account? Eft
Ask your consultant to give you an Information sheet. Fill in all the information needed (ask your bank for the correct bank code and branch code) and our administration department will do the rest. Please bear in mind that although Pronel always endeavours to transfer your money on time, some banks can take up to two (2) days to clear the amount.
