Selection Process

Our evaluation process is one of the most stringent in the industry. The screening process starts with the initial contact with the applicant. We begin by evaluating the applicant’s punctuality and their accuracy and attention to detail on the application, as well as their ability to follow the interview procedures thoroughly.

Once a candidate has arrived for their interview, our staff assesses their dress and overall demeanor. A detailed interview then takes place identifying strengths and weaknesses, adaptability and flexibility.

We prefer that employees have a minimum of six months prior work experience for all clerical positions and at least one year of experience for accounting or information technology positions, depending on the nature of the assignment. Manufacturing, light industrial and technical positions may be accepted as entry-level positions.

All of the staffing employees that we hire are asked to show proof of employment eligibility, and a background check is automatically conducted for the state of Texas. Reference checks or employment verifications are then conducted. Drug screens, credit checks, national background checks and additional verifications can be conducted per client request at an additional cost.

Skills Assessment

When appropriate, applicants are asked to perform and pass a variety of tests, both written and computerized.

For administrative and clerical applicants, our testing procedures consist of spelling, basic math, filing and proofreading skills. The applicant is then evaluated using - a validated computerized testing system. Typical evaluations for administrative applicants include typing, data entry, and any applicable Microsoft Office programs.

We also offer evaluations on additional software and industry or job-specific testing when appropriate.
