Frequently Asked Questions

What is PopBookings Recruit?

PopBookings recruit is a recruitment tool for our users to gain access to more event workers. Posting a job to Recruit will make it visible to a broader group of potential workers.

Who is in the Recruit pool of talent?

The talent pool of Recruits comprises of the most active PopBookings users there are. These individuals have worked many jobs on the platform and actively apply to many opportunities. We want to offer you the most seamless experience when hiring out-of-network so we use a list of requirements to make a talent eligible to work Recruit jobs. There are Recruits in 8,600 different cities across the country.

Can talent register with my agency directly if they find me through Recruit?

Absolutely! If you use our management software tools and both parties want to connect for potential future work, the talent can register with your company directly using the “Agency Connect” feature after 30 days of working together.

What happens if the person I hire doesn’t show up?

First of all, we take these cases very seriously. If a person is proven to have not shown up to your job, you will be refunded the full amount paid for that person. The talent who did not show up will incur account suspension and review to their profile will be posted.

Can I review a Recruit after they have worked for me?

You sure can! And this is encouraged with any Recruit you hire. This helps us maintain a strong, accountable community for all! The Recruits can also provide feedback on how their experience was working with you as an F.Y.I.

What is the cost to use Recruit?

It is free to post your job to Recruit. It will then be visible to our thousands of staff users browsing jobs. Browse candidates for your job. You only pay when you found your unicorn staff! At that point, you will pay the talent payout upfront plus a small service fee of 9% (for example, if you are paying the talent $100 you will pay $100 plus $9 at time of bookings.)

Do talent have a fee to book through Recruit?

Yes, talent users also incur a processing fee when booking through Recruit. The final fees are listed on the app both when they apply and when they confirm a booking. If you are booking through the Recruit tool, discussing pay rates outside the system is discouraged. It’s best to always direct them to what the app says will be paid to them.

Can I contact the talent outside of the system?

Contacting the talent outside the system is discouraged, but if it is absolutely necessary, it’s permitted. For example, if you want to schedule a phone interview with the individual before hiring, you can. All booking, confirming, time tracking, and payment should be done through the software as per our Terms of Service. 

Can I pay talent booked through Recruit outside of the system?

When booking a Recruit, all talent payment will be escrowed upfront and released to the worker 48 hours after the event end date. Paying talent outside the system is against our terms of use and can result in suspension on your account.

If you want to tap into the PopBookings community with more of your jobs and cannot afford the float of escrowing talent payments for all jobs booked on PopBookings, check out our enterprise management tools.

Who does the 1099 filings for people booked through Recruit?

It is encouraged to file a 1099-MISC form for any contractor hired to work for you regardless if they are hired through Recruit or not when applicable. We recommend consulting a tax specialist for professional guidance on how to do these filings.
