1. How do I apply to join Reliance Staffing & Recruiting?
There are two steps to applying: the application and the interview. You can start online by checking our job listings; if you find a position you’re interested in, you can fill out most of the application online, then come into one of our four offices to sign your application and be interviewed. If none of the open positions match your skills, you can still apply to join the team by coming in to one of our four offices to complete a paper application and be interviewed. No matter what application method you use, we still need to meet you for an in-person interview at one of our offices.
2. When do you interview?
We interview every week, Monday-Thursday, 9-11 am and 2-3 pm.
3. What kind of interview is it?
Our interviews aren’t casual chats; they’re real job interviews. Dress for the job you want and impress us with your professionalism!
4. Do I need to bring a resume?
Please do! Even if you’re already in our system, if it’s been a year or two since you signed up with us, please bring or send us a current resume so we can make the best possible matches between your skills and experience and what our clients are looking for.
5. If I apply online, can I send you my resume via email?
Yes, you can. We prefer resumes in Microsoft Word format.
6. Do I have to interview even if I’m not applying for a specific job?
Yes. We interview everyone who applies to be part of the Reliance team of associates. This way, if a client has a future job opening that’s a great fit for you, we can recommend you to them immediately.
7. I’ve applied, but I wasn’t matched with a job. Do I need to keep applying for jobs when I see one I like on your site?
Nope. Once you’re in our database, you’re included in all our searches for candidates that match the jobs our clients want filled. So you don’t have to apply, call or email when you see a job on our site that you think you might be a good match for. However, you do need to call us once every week to let us know you’re available for work. Call the office where you applied (here’s our contact info), and be sure to leave your current phone number so we can reach you when a good match comes along.
8. Can I bring my friends/parents/kids/pets along when I apply?
Sorry, but no. Space and chairs are at a premium in our waiting rooms, so we request that only people who are applying to join Reliance be in our waiting rooms. However, if you’d like to refer someone to us, and that person wants to apply as well, then of course they can join you!
9. What job openings do you have right now?
Our available positions are listed right here, and you can apply online as well.
10. What can I do to increase my chances of getting the jobs I want?
We’re glad you asked! We’ve got a whole page of resume and cover letter tips right here. And here we have tips on acing the interview. If you want to keep in touch with us and learn more about job-hunting, interviewing, careers, etc., we’d love for you to Like Us on Facebook.
11. Can I get health insurance as a temporary worker?
Yes! We offer health coverage through Essential StaffCARE. If we offer you an assignment, you’ll receive information and a sign-up form for health insurance; you’ll have 30 days to make your choice and accept coverage if you wish.
