Hiring a temp

Hiring a temp is getting popular here and they are placed in a status that have no promise of being permanent. Particularly in department stores, most of the sales people there are contractual in nature, i.e. they are hired for 5 months and relieved after that period. They have to wait for 1 month of rest before being taken in again for another 5 months. That is the life cycle of a temp here in order to avoid the law that says working for more than 5 months in a company will consider you a permanent employee.

Yup, I've seen a lot of companies do this and it doesn't surprise me that it's a popular "act". Still, I suppose if a temp employee actually impresses you throughout those 5 months he's going to work for you that can mean a permanent spot for him, right?

I think the temp thing is done on purpose to save money. It is easy to hire temp's for positions that is not so hard to fill and easy to learn how to complete the job. Temps save businesses money because when you become a full time employee benefits must be paid.
