Out with the Old and in with The New . . .But What Should We Keep and What Can We Throw Away?
In today’s world, technology is constantly evolving, thus making keeping and storing personal and business documents, even more convenient and easy. Though some still like to hold on to the hard copy that they have, such as a bill, bank statement, tax files, or other personal documents, others are now scanning and filing those documents onto their computers, instead of storing them in an actual folder, drawer, cabinet, etc. in their home or office.
With the retention time beginning when we file or receive the document, we only keep our hard documents for certain lengths of time. But what about the electronic versions of these documents? How long can we keep those? Well, those still need to be kept for the same time period as a hard documents hard file would be kept. For examples of how long certain documents should be kept, whether they are hard files or electronic, see the short list below.
- Bank statements – 3 years
- Employment applications – 3 years
- Invoices (to customers, from vendors) – 7 years
- Payroll records & Summaries – 7 years
- Personnel files (terminated) – 7 years
- Time books/cards – 7 years
- Vouchers for payments to vendors, employee, etc.(includes allowances & reimbursement of employees, officers, etc. for travel & entertainment expenses) – 7 years
Remember to always keep back up of your files, whether they are hard copies or electronic. For a complete list of record retention periods, please call give us a call at our Goldsboro office at (919) 759-2303 or our Clayton Office at (919)553-4700.

How soon can I start working?
Job availability changes on a daily basis. Once our application process is complete, you are considered based on your preferences, your skills, your work history and your references. You will be offered appropriate job positions.
How often should I contact your office after an interview?
You are required to call our office every Monday to maintain your availability for work. You will be asked to leave your name, phone number and what type of work you are interested in. If we do not hear from you we may assume you have found a job or may be out of town and therefore “unavailable.”
What if I am not interested in a certain position when it is offered, is it all right to turn it down?
Not every job is going to meet the expectations you have. If you are not interested in a particular job, you are free to decline. We may continue to offer positions to you based on your skills and preferences.
What if I am on an assignment and decide it is not for me?
We realize that not every job is a good fit for you and that sometimes you do not know that until you have tried the position. If you are on an assignment and find it is not a fit for you, we ask that you contact us immediately. You may be asked to stay at an assignment long enough for us to find a replacement, but we will remedy the situation as quickly as possible. As with any interaction communication is the key. We expect open communication from our field of employees and you can expect the same from our staff at the Doubletree Personnel.
What do I pay for your services?
Our services are provided at “no fee” to applicants.
How can I stay informed about open positions?
Some of our positions are posted on our website. We also maintain a “hot job” line with a listing of positions we are currently filling. These two locations list a portion of the jobs we have open but are not a complete listing.
