Employee Frequently Asked Questions

When do I get paid?

The Lee Group pays weekly. Checks are mailed every Thursday at noon, and direct deposits post on Thursday at midnight. We strongly encourage all employees to take advantage of direct deposit as we can not control how long it may take for the US Postal Service to deliver our check.

Time cards are due on Monday by noon. There is a number on each time card where you can fax the completed time card at any time. You may also drop the time card at either Lee Group location or mail it to the office. Please note that a delay in turning in your time card may result in a delay in receiving your pay check.

    My experience with The Lee Group has been exceptional.  The staff has always been reliable and upfront about their expectations.  I have watched them work feverishly to place me in a job that matched my skills, career goals and schedule.  Today I am working at Highliner Foods as a Warehouse Receiving Team Lead while working on a Bachelor’s Degree.  I love going to work every day and I owe it all to Kelly, Lena and the outstanding staff at The Lee Group. Place your future in their hands.  You won’t regret it.  Good Luck!

    I’ve had a professional relationship with The Lee Group for over a year now.  First as an associate when Jessica Runge placed me on an assignment as a Human Resources Coordinator.  After eleven months of working for the company as a temporary employee, I was hired on as a permanent employee and am now the main contact for one of their largest clients.  The service is exceptional and I would recommend them to anyone.

  • In October of 2012 I was laid off from my job. I mentioned this to my hairdresser who gave me the business card of Sheryl Dinger at The Lee Group. I thought that I didn’t need help finding a new job, it would be no problem. Two months later I still had no leads so I called Sheryl. I was able to interview with her before the week was out and she already had a lead on a job. Sheryl prepped me for the interview with the company with valuable insight into what the company was looking for, what they did and the type of employee they were looking for. Sheryl stayed in contact throughout the interview process and was a great source of encouragement. I was hired for a six month temp position. Within four months of the assignment, the company had hired me full time.

    My name is Gerry Rivera presently working for ABC I was given the opportunity to work with this company thru The Lee Group staffing agency. I was out of work for 2 months when Mrs. Cindy Harp contacted me. She told me that she got a position for me for one of their long time customer and my experience is a good fit and She is absolutely right, after I met Mr. Dan Gauldin of ABC. We both know that we share the same passion on how to make things better, specially on our side which  is the mechanical side. Mr. Gauldin and Mr. London are very supportive people.

    I moved in the area in 2008 and was seeking employment. I searched online and came across the Lee Group. My need was crucial to them. They took my skills and qualifications and found a job that was a good fit for me. They kept in contact with me throughout the temporary employment process, which later became my full time employment. And even after my temporary services were no longer required they were still intentional about checking on my well being. The Lee Group is not just an organization, it is a people based brand that cares about their people before, during, and after the employment process.

  • My name is Betty Hall and I have had to awesome experiences with The Lee Group.  My first encounter I went to the office in Chesapeake and spoke with Sheryl Dinger. She said she needed 3 people to work 2nd shift at TFC recycling I replied no you need 2 people.  She then asked if I was a morning or evening person again I replied I’m an unemployed person.  I went to work and after being there for 3 months I was hired on permanently.

    I had been at TFC for a year.   Just by luck I ran into Sheryl Dinger.  We talked and I told her I was still at TFC and I asked her if she had anything else.   She said yes.  I put in my resignation at TFC and started working at Coresix.  Ater working again for 3 months I became permanent.
