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 offered appropriate positions. We have a lot of people start the same day!
When do I get paid?
Most of our employees get paid the Friday following their work week.
What is involved in the application process?
There are many ways to fit your needs. You can apply online or in our office at one of our many kiosks. Online is not required and we will be glad to assist you in any way, whether at the kiosk or with a good ol’ fashioned paper application. You will have your own Web Center account [link 8.0] and have access to personal job fits and the ability to update and obtain any information you may need. Based on the information you provided, you will then need to visit our office and complete the interview and required documents process.
Once the application process is complete, you will interview with a staffing specialist. In the interview, you will have the opportunity to discuss what vocational skills you have and what you are looking for in your next position. The staffing specialist 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 basic safety training and orientation. For office and professional positions, you may be asked to do some computer testing to determine skill levels.
How often should I contact your office after an interview?
IES Custom Staffing has two ways to check-in: online via your Web Center account or call the local office. We realize that it is not always convenient for you to check in on a daily basis, you are simply encouraged to stay in touch with our office so we are aware of your availability.
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; sometimes you do not know that until you have tried the position. That is the beauty of staffing! 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 our field employees and they can expect the same from the IES Custom Staffing office.
What do I pay for your services?
ZERO! As an applicant, you will not pay for any of the services IES Custom Staffing provides.
How can I stay informed about open positions?
Some of our positions will be posted on our website. When you create your Web Center account, it can be set to notify you of job fits as they come up. These two locations will list a portion of the jobs we have open but are not a complete listing. Always feel free to call in!
