The WPI Difference
Our team of talent goes through an extensive hiring process before we contract them. Our interview process starts with a thorough review of each applicant's portfolio, resume, and of course a social media check. From there we conduct a ‘get to know you’ interview where we have the opportunity to ask those all-telling questions about the type of person they are and their experience as a professional.
The next step is a technical interview where the applicant brings in a model and we get to see their skills in action. This process allows us to see the types of products they use, their sanitation practices as well as their skill-set and customer service.
Finally. The final stage is to run a national criminal background check, which includes every category. We partner with Trusted Employees for this service. This final step is of the utmost importance to us so we can ensure the safety of our clients. Once all of those things pass with a green light we contract them and take them through an on-boarding and orientation process to familiarize them with our company policies and procedures. Many beauty agencies over-look this crucial step and independent freelancers can't offer this safety piece for themselves. You should never have to worry about the credibility of the Artisans you are contracting to bring into your home, hotel room, event space, corporate offices, etc.
