Job Seeker FAQ
How soon can I start working?
Tomorrow, or maybe today….would that be too soon? We have lots of immediate opportunities. Once our application process is complete, you will be considered based on your preferences and your skills and will be offered appropriate positions.
What is involved in the application process?
You will need to come into our office and fill out an application. You will be asked to provide complete work history information as well as asked preference of shift, type of work and preference of location.
After the application is complete, you will interview with your recruiter. In the interview, you will have the opportunity to discuss what skills you have and what you are looking for in your next position.
Once you have completed the interview, you will go through basic safety training and, for office and professional positions, may be asked to do some computer testing to determine skill levels.
Career Strategies does reference checks with previous employers and may initiate a criminal background check.
How often should I contact your office after an interview?
Career Strategies wants to talk with you. We urge you to check in with us at least weekly. You don’t need to check in every day, but if your availability changes, please let us know right away.
What if I am not interested in a certain position when it is offered? Is it all right to turn it down?
YES! Be honest with is – we want you to be happy! Not every job is going to meet your expectations. If you are not interested in a position you are free to decline. We will 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; sometimes you do not know that until you have tried the position. If you are on an assignment and find it is not going to work for you, we will 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 attempt to remedy the situation as quickly as possible. As with any interaction, communication is the key. We expect open communication from you and you can expect the same from us.
What do I pay for your services?
Nada, zip, nothing! You will not pay for any of the services Career Strategies provides. We are an employer paid only agency!
How can I stay informed about open positions?
Some of our positions will be posted on our website. But your best bet is to pick up the phone and stay in touch with your local office.
