Tips to Maximize Your All Star Labor & Staffing Experience
All Star Labor & Staffing matches job seekers with reputable companies around Oregon and the Northwest. We pride ourselves on the success of our employees and the productivity they bring to our clients. To ensure a prosperous relationship with us and our teams, we have compiled a list to help maximize your employment potential. Here are seven tips to help you get the most out of working with us:
- Do your research
Before applying with All Star Labor & Staffing, do a little research so you understand what we do, how we work and what our mission is. All of this information can be found on our website at www.allstarlabor.com. Go beyond that though. Ask around your community to hear other experiences of working with us to see if it will be a good fit for you.
- Take the interview seriously
Treat your interview with our recruiters just as you would any other job interview. Dress appropriately, arrive on schedule, be polite, and come prepared. How you present yourself in your interview with us may be seen as you will represent yourself in front of a potential employer.
- Be honest
Honesty is key when it comes to an effective partnership between you and our All Star team. Being up front and honest from the beginning helps us both in avoiding miscommunication and frustration. Some essential items to be straightforward about are: past jobs and reasons for leaving, skills, education, availability, jobs you’re willing to try, any criminal background and ability to pass a drug screen. We are here to help you, and the only way we are able to do that is if you are completely candid with us.
- Have an open mind
Even if permanent work is what you are looking for, keep an open mind to temporary work. These jobs can provide income until your ideal position is available, and can be an opportunity to learn new skills and expand your job network. Sometimes these temporary positions can turn into full-time, permanent positions as well.
- It’s okay to say “No”
While we would like to provide you with any available work that we can, it is okay to pass on jobs that you do not feel comfortable with. We don’t want you to feel that if you decline a position now that you will not be looked at for further placement. If you are not comfortable with a certain assignment, let us know from the beginning and we can continue our search for the right fit for you.
- Have good communication
Make it a point to stay in good communication with your All Star team. Keep us in the loop on your current job search status and update us once a week if you are still seeking employment. If your current situation or availability changes, please be sure to let us know so we can work around it. Feel free to call, text or email us.
