Interview Process

We typically do what we call a “Working Interview”. It is where you come and get the opportunity to actually do the work that you would be hired for. It gives you the chance to test it out and make sure that it is the type of work that you’d enjoy, but also gives us a chance to evaluate your skill set. They are typically four hours long and they are paid. After the four hours of working interview, it is followed up with a conversational interview. This can range anywhere from 15-30 minutes. Since it is a paid interview, paperwork must be filled out so you would be required to bring along a drivers license and social security card. Or other forms of identification that can be discussed when setting up the interview. The start times for these interviews are usually Monday-Friday 7am-11am. Times and length can vary and be discussed prior to lining it up. Feel free to call if you have questions on the interview process.
