Frequently Asked Questions
Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we’re asked:
Q: How soon can I start working?
A: Job availability changes on a daily basis. Once our application process is complete, you will be considered based on your preferences, experience, and your skills, and will be offered appropriate positions. There is the potential to be put to work the same day or the next day.
Q: What is involved in the application process?
A: You will need to come into our office and fill out an application or complete one online. 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 a staffing representative. In the interview, you will have the opportunity to discuss what skills you have and what you are looking for in your next position. The staffing representative will discuss not only what specific skills you have, but also find out more about your experiences in job-related settings.
Once you have completed the interview, you will go through more paperwork, watch a safety video, and you may be asked to do other testing to determine skill levels.
Star Staffing does reference checks with previous employers and other references provided by applicants. Once screening is complete, you will be offered jobs based on all the factors of your interview process.
Q: How often should I contact your office after an interview?
A: Please contact your branch once each week (preferably Mondays) to be put on our availability list.
Q: What if I am not interested in a certain position when it is offered? Is it all right to turn it down?
A: 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. We appreciate your honesty.
Q: What if I am on an assignment and decide it is not for me?
A: 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 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 our employees, and they can expect the same from the Star Staffing office.
Q: What do I pay for your services?
A: As an applicant, you will not pay for any of the services Star Staffing provides.
Q: How can I stay informed about open positions?
