How Soon Can I Start Working?

Job availability changes on a daily basis. Once our application process is complete, you will be considered based on your preferences and your skills and will be offered appropriate positions.

What's Involved With the Application Process?

You will need to complete an application. After the application is complete, you will interview with a staffing specialist. In the interview, you will have the opportunity to discuss your skills and what you are looking for in your next position. The staffing specialist will discuss what specific skills you have and find out more about your experiences in job-related settings.

Once you have completed the interview, you will go through basic safety training. For office and professional positions, you may be asked to do some computer testing to determine skill levels.

Custom Staffing Services does reference checks with previous employers and other references provided by applicants. Once reference information is complete, you will be offered jobs based on all the factors of your interview process.

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 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; 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 ask that you contact us immediately. You may be asked to stay on 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 our field employees, and they can expect the same from the Custom Staffing Services office.
What Do I Pay for Your Services?
As an applicant, there are no job placement fees.
