Job Seeker FAQ
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 contacted regarding appropriate positions.
What is involved in the application process?
First you will need to submit your resume for our review via the “Submit Resume” button on the right side of this page. Once we asses that your background and skill-set are a match for what our clients are typically looking for, a recruiter will reach out to schedule an interview here in our office. When you arrive, you will fill out our application and meet with a recruiter to discuss your work history, skills and what you are looking for in your next position. The recruiter will give you an in-depth description of how our process works and what to expect next from us. Once you have completed the interview, or most likely before you come in, you will be asked to complete some software evaluations to determine your skill levels. These evaluations can be done online, from the comfort of your own home, but are also available to take here in our office if you have any issues. They are web-based and you do not need the software (i.e. QuickBooks or Microsoft Office) on your home computer to successfully complete them.
South Shore Staffing calls previous employers for reference checks and also confirms other references provided by applicants. Reference checks are typically done before you start an assignment. Please be prepared to provide contact information for your references upon our request. After your interview and once you are fully set up in our database, you will be contacted for jobs based on all the factors of your interview process and the needs of our clients.
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 for you, and sometimes you don’t know that until you’ve tried the position. If you are on an assignment and find it’s 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 field employees, and they can expect the same from the South Shore Staffing office.
What do I pay for your services?
As an applicant, you will not pay for any of the services South Shore Staffing provides.
How can I stay informed about open positions?
Our open positions may be posted on our website. We sometimes post positions with various job boards and online resources as well. We encourage candidates to check in with us semi-regularly to inquire about available positions.
