If you see a position that matches your background, availability, and goals, apply or register with us to be contacted by a member of our recruiting team. In our initial interview, we’ll get to know your work history and specific goals for career success.

 

Q: How do I register an account with WunderLand?

Q: What is the talent marketplace like right now?  

A: Job seekers have more options in today’s marketplace than ever before. Employers are embracing a more flexible workforce with freelance, contract, and full-time talent. You can broaden your expertise and professional network with project-based work or pursue a permanent role and the growth that comes with it. Our recruiters can help you decide what’s the best fit.

 

Q: What happens when I accept a freelance, contract, or full-time job?

A: When you’re placed in a freelance or contract position, you become WunderLand’s employee. We pay your wages and provide workplace benefits. If you run into challenges with your job along the way, talk with a recruiter first to address next steps. When you’re placed in a direct-hire, full-time position, you join the hiring company’s permanent team. Our client adds you to their payroll, and you’ll report directly to their management.

 

 

Q: What if I’m placed on a job that isn’t the right fit?

A:  We want you to feel at home in your new career. If you feel out of sync with the company culture or run into challenges with your job duties, reach out to one of our recruiters. It doesn’t matter if you’re a freelance, contract, or full-time employee. Job satisfaction is critical to performance.

 

Q: What happens when I have to call in sick? 

A: It happens! If you’re too sick to go to work, notify your recruiter right away, then notify the person you report to at our client. At WunderLand, for every 40 hours worked, a contractor accrues 1 hour of sick time. Sick time becomes available for use on the 180th calendar day of work, or after about 6 months.

 

Q: Does WunderLand offer benefits such as health insurance and vacation pay?

 A: WunderLand offers the same comprehensive benefits package we offer our internal team. We have several medical and dental plans through Allied Health and Aetna. You can enroll in a 401(k) plan once you work 12 consecutive months. Vacation time and holiday rewards are also available.

 

Q: Does enrolling for insurance benefits affect my hourly rate?

A: Insurance coverage through WunderLand does not affect your hourly rate. However, if you choose to enroll in our insurance plan, you will be responsible for paying a portion of your insurance benefits. We’re happy to provide you pricing information and the full details before you enroll.

 

Q: Do you take a cut of my pay for your service

A: Our services are always free to you as a job seeker. When we negotiate your salary with a client, the decided amount is what you’ll be earning, minus taxes and benefits taken out by your employer.

 

Q: What are the benefits of working with WunderLand recruiters?

A: We take the time to get to know you and assign a team of recruiters to support your search. We work collaboratively to match you with positions, companies, and cultures that align with your background and goals. We have access to job opportunities you won’t find on your own, so send us a message. We look forward to working with you.
