Make your interview count! Follow these steps to ensure an efficient application process.  We schedule interviews with candidates that we feel are a best for the positions we are hiring for by appointment only, Monday - Friday, 9am-2pm (unless other arrangements are made and according to office schedule).

What if I do not like the position? 

If you are unhappy with a position, please immediately call our office or your recruiter to express your concerns.  Our goal is to find the best fit for you and our client.  We will do our best to find you a new placement.

 

How much will I earn? ​​

Each Monday morning, all final time sheets are due to the payroll department. Pay is distributed on Fridays. The current pay options are paper check and direct deposit. Salaries are based on the positions we have available, duties and required experience.

BE ON TIME!  Early is better,  Being late gives a bad impression.  Even further, being late without calling in advance will disqualify you from the process.

REMEMBER TO COME ALONE! We will not interview applicants who bring additional parties to the office.  Dress for success. Be prepared. Be mindful of your body language.

EXHIBIT GOOD MANNERS AND ATTITUDE! All together, they tell us who you are and what you will bring to our clients.  We want the best.

BE HONEST! This applies to both your application and in your interview.  We are looking for the best fit for you and our client.  Part of our process is to check the information  that you provide.

Body Language & Attitude

 

  • Your visual impression or body language, as well as your attitude, are just as important as what you actually say. Enthusiasm, interest level, and sincerity contribute to the 'chemistry' that often makes or breaks a hiring decision.

  • Nodding agreement encourages others to talk as well as letting them know that you understand what is being said.

  • Eye contact is one of the best aspects of body language -- Do not stare at the floor.

  • Have a firm (but not crushing) handshake.

Attitude and Preparation



  • Being enthusiastic. By being upbeat and having a positive attitude, you'll show the job interviewer within the first few seconds that you are a "can-do" person who will be an asset to their organization.

  • Being likeable. It sounds simplistic, but it's a fact that is often overlooked... people want to work with (and hire) people they like.

  • Being determined. You have to make it clear that you want this job more than anything else.

  • Being informed. You need to know about the company and what they'll expect you to do for them.

 

Dress & Manners

 

  • Turn OFF your cell phone prior to the interview.

  • A suit is appropriate for men and women seeking professional positions.

  • 'Casual Friday' clothing may be acceptable for other positions, but jeans and t-shirts should stay at home.

  • If you are detained for any reason, Stop and Call.

  • Plan to arrive at the interview location at least 5-10 minutes early
