How do I get a job?

We are focused on finding the right fit for each of our associates. Once a PrideStaff recruiter contacts you, the process begins. You will have an in-person interview with our recruiting team to ensure we understand what you are seeking in your next career opportunity.

How often should I contact your office?

Communication is key. We recommend a weekly call to inform our recruiters that you are still actively seeking work or if anything has changed in your job search. This enables our recruiters to modify their strategies to fit your job seeking needs.

Do I have to call you when my assignment ends if I want another job?

Yes, we want to make sure that nothing has changed in your job search, so we can get back to helping you find another position. Whenever anything changes in your employment situation or job search, please let us know.

Who do I work for, PrideStaff or the company you place me with?

It depends. PrideStaff offers several types of opportunities such as temporary, temporary-to-hire and direct hire (meaning that you become a regular employee for a given company). For both temporary and temporary-to-hire assignments, you are employed by PrideStaff, and we welcome you to our team!

How long must I work for a company through PrideStaff before I can get hired on by that company?

Becoming a full-time employee varies by office, client and your individual performance. Your PrideStaff recruiter is your best resource, and will work with you to find the best fit for your individual situation.

How long do job assignments last?

The length of our assignments is based on the needs of our clients. During your in-person interview, our recruiters will discuss which type of employment opportunity is the right fit for you.

Do you have positions available where I work directly for the company you place me with?

Yes, PrideStaff offers our clients the ability to hire our associates full-time. This is considered a direct hire opportunity.

If I don't accept a position you offer me, will you call me again?

Yes, we understand that not every position offered to you is going to meet your needs. However, we will consult with you to set reasonable expectations about the kinds of jobs that are available within the context of your goals and experience.

How can I get to the top of your call list?

Call your recruiter once a week and let them know if anything has changed in your job search. This may change who they are contacting in regards to your experience.

Do you offer any training?

We do offer training on several computer software systems, including Microsoft Office. Contact your recruiter directly for more details.

Do you offer resume writing services?

We will be happy to evaluate your resume, provide feedback and sample resumes to help you prepare for your job search.

Do you offer coaching prior to my interview with your clients?

Yes, PrideStaff recruiters are here to help you prepare for your interview. We understand that the best candidates are not always the best interviewees, and we recognize the importance of being well prepared. We do everything we can to set you up for success.

What happens if I am not happy in a position PrideStaff has placed me in?

Call our recruiters. Our focus is finding the right fit for you.

What happens if I am injured on my assignment?
