Temporary Staffing

As of October 1, 2013, only a purchase order can officially contract for temporary staffing through Randstad. Credit cards will no longer be accepted for the payment process. However, Randstad will continue to administer/allow payments via temp staffing cardless accounts for existing temporary staff only until the end of the temp's current assignment. After the assignment ends, then you must submit the temp staffing closure form to close your cardless account.  Future requests for temporary employees must be processed through a CruzBuy order. Instructions can be found in the new Temporary Staffing Guide

If you have questions not answered in this guide, you may contact Pro-Card at or by phone at (831) 459-3343.

  • Activating, Registering and Protecting your Temp Staff Cardless Account

    Activate all new or replaced Cardless Account numbers by calling 1-800-344-5696 (24 hours 7 days per week). An automated phone response system will ask you (the Primary Contact) to:

    1. "Enter your 16 digit Account Number"
    2. "Enter your five digit zip code" (See billing address on letter that provides Cardless Account number)
    3. "Enter the last four digits of your Social Security number" Be sure to enter the last four digits of your Employee I.D. #, not your SS #. This number is shown on your monthly pay stub and in CruzPay.

    The Bank system will verify the information and activate the account if the data provided over the phone matches the information provided on the Temp Staff Cardless Account Application.


    Register your card online with US Bank Access. Be sure to register each Cardless Account you receive.

    US Bank Access on line training: Enter password in the box labeled "Lesson Log In Only". The password changes periodically for security reasons. Accompanying each new Cardless Account will be a welcome letter that states the current password information.

    Protect your Cardless Account

    The Primary Contact (PC) receives the department/unit's Temp Staff Cardless Account number in a secure letter (no physical cards are required or available) from the PCA.

    Find a safe place for your Cardless Account information.

    • Lock the notification letter in your desk.
    • Store the Cardless Account number in a secure place.

    Do not leave cardless Account transaction information lyring on your desk as the Cardless Account number may be visible.

    If you lose your account information immediately email

    If you are on an extended leave or furlough, contact your Supervisor to cancel the account permanently, deactivate it temporarily, or transfer it to a replacement Primary Contact, and contact the Pro-card Administrator at (831) 459-3343.

    • Temp Name
    • Bill Rate
    • Pay Rate
    • Total Transaction Cost
    • Date

    If this information is not provided write the missing information on the Summary. If you lose a Weekly Transaction Summary, request a replacement from Randstad.

  • Supplier Disputes

    Sometimes, a Temp Staff Supervisor in a Department/Unit does not recognize a transaction on their statement, or the amount does not match their report from Randstad. The Primary Contact initially handles any disputes with Randstad. S/he is responsible for contacting Randstad immediately.

    Randstad Contact Information:

    The Primary Contact must first try to resolve any dispute with Randstad directly. This is the best and most efficient means of handling any disputed charges. Randstad will work with you to resolve any differences.

    1. Contact Randstad immediately.
    2. Negotiate an agreement with them.
    3. Document all phone calls and retain all correspondence with Randstad.
    4. Note problem on statement.
    5. Check next statement to confirm credit, if credit is due.

    If an agreement cannot be reached with Randstad or if credit does not appear on next statement, US Bank will resolve the matter. The Primary Contact must, however, contact US Bank within 60 days from the statement date. Follow these steps:

    1. Log on to Access Online. Follow the instructions in Access Online User Guide - Transaction Management to locate the transaction in question and provide information to the bank about why the transaction is being disputed.
    2. As specified in the online instructions, Print, Sign and Fax or Mail to the Bank.
    3. Attach a copy of the complete documentation for the dispute. Once disputed, a small D will be displayed next to the record for the transaction.
    4. Keep a copy in your records.

    Once the bank recives the dispute form they will advocate for you.

    1. The bank will review the dispute.
    2. The bank will issue a credit to the Department/Unit's account.
    3. The bank will investigate the charge.
    4. If the charge is determined to be valid, the expense will be charged to the Department/Unit's account by the bank.
    5. If the charge is determined to be incorrect, the credit will remain with the Department/Unit.

    The bank has 60 days in which to complete their investigation.

  • Report details

    The MS Excel report will be downloaded from AccessOnline to the location specified by the computer being used. (A blank WebFOCUS Report window may appear on your screen; it can be closed.) The report filename is typically something similar to WFServlet.xls and contains many "extra" fields of information not needed for reconciling statements. Follow the steps below to view a smaller, more useful report that shows fewer fields of data:

    • Change the filename (for example, for the file in this example change the name from WFServlet.xls to TempServicesReportVerboseNov09.xls). Save the renamed file.
    • Copy the lines of data from the newly generated verbose report. In the example shown below rows 2-5 are highlighted and ready to be copied. (Additional fields extend to the right in the Excel spreadsheet, but are not shown in the image below.)
    • Open the template: RandstadDetailReportTemplate.xls.

    Example:  Temp Report

    • Copy the selected lines from the verbose report and paste into the template. To paste, highlight all cells in Line 2, the first empty row of the template (shown highlighted below). "Extra" data fields will be hidden when report data is pasted into the template.

    Spherion Template - Example 2

    • "SAVE AS" (MSExcel File menu) the resulting file with a name appropriate for your department. For this example the file is saved as TempServicesReportNov09.xls.

    Temp Report Example After

    • Convert the file to a pdf for ease of emailing to your Primary Contact or print the file, if preferred. For MAC users, to create a pdf simply use the Excel Print command and choose Save as PDF.
