Frequently Asked Questions
How soon can I start working?
Job availability changes on a daily basis. Once our application process is complete, you will be considered based on your preferences and skills and will be offered appropriate positions.
What is involved in the application process?
You will need to come into our office and fill out an application and complete a basic assessment test. You will be asked to provide complete work history information, preference of shift, type of work and preference of location.
After the application is complete, you will interview with a staffing consultant. In the interview, you will have the opportunity to discuss what vocational skills you have and what you are looking for in your next position. The staffing consultant will discuss not only what specific skills you have, but also find out more about your experiences in job-related settings.
Once you have completed the interview, you will go through HCR’s orientation process and, for office and professional positions, may be asked to do some computer testing to determine skill levels.
How often should I contact your office after an orientation?
HCR encourages employees to call in daily to inform us of your availability. You will be asked to leave your name, phone number, and what type of work you are interested in. We realize that it is not always convenient for you to check in on a daily basis. You are encouraged to check in each Monday, at a minimum, to inform us of your availability for work that week.
What if I am not interested in a certain position when it is offered, is it alright to turn it down?
Not every job is going to meet the expectations you have. If you are not interested in a position, you are free to decline. We will continue to offer positions to you based on your skills and preferences.
What if I am on an assignment and decide it is not for me?
We realize that not every job is a good fit for you, and sometimes you do not know that until you have tried the position. If you are on an assignment and find it is not going to work for you, we ask that you contact us immediately. You may be asked to stay at an assignment long enough for us to find a replacement, but we will attempt to remedy the situation as quickly as possible. As with any interaction, communication is the key. We expect open communication from our field employees and they can expect the same from the HCR office.
What do I pay for your services?
As an applicant, you will not pay for any of the services HCR provides.
