Steps to working with On Call in your Temporary Job Search

Step 1: Applying for a Job...

If you see an opportunity on our Job Board and you meet the Basic Qualifications of the job, Apply for It! When you apply for a job, the On Call Recruiter managing that opportunity will be alerted and you can expect a phone call or feedback via email in 24 – 48 hours.

Step 2: Interviewing with On Call...

After applying for a job, expect a thorough interview with the On Call Recruiter managing the opportunity. Be prepared to answer questions about your technical strengths, reason for leaving jobs, desired salary, strengths, weaknesses, availability, software knowledge, long term goals, previous job responsibilities, size of previous companies where you have worked, desired commute, etc. Depending on the confidentiality of the role, the Recruiter may not disclose the name of our Client at that time, however he/she will share all pertinent details of the position including the expected pay rate. And, it's good to have questions for us too, this is the time to do it!

Step 3: Submitting your Candidacy to our Client...

Prior to submitting your candidacy to our Client, the On Call Recruiter will review feedback of your internal interview with the On Call Account Manager that oversees the relationship with the Client. Either the On Call Recruiter that you originally spoke with or the Account Manager for that Client will let you know that we intend / do not intend to submit your candidacy to our Client.

Step 4: Interviewing with our Client...

Either the On Call Recruiter that you have been working with or the Account Manager overseeing the Client relationship will contact you to coordinate the Client interview (discuss attire, location, timing, parking, special instructions, etc.). Once the interview is completed, please contact the On Call contact that coordinated the Client interview immediately in order to share your feedback and interest level. Once we have received feedback from the Client, we will contact you to share the Client’s feedback, good or bad… but ideally with news that you got the job!

Step 5: You got the job...

The Account Manager will coordinate the start date/time, report to's, etc. Pay rates will also be reconfirmed. If it is a temporary or temporary-to-hire position, duration of the temporary assignment or expected conversion timeline will be reiterated.

You will also be contacted by an On Call Staffing Coordinator with instructions to complete On Call’s on-boarding process. Most on-boarding paperwork can be completed on-line and should take 30 minutes or less to complete. If the job offer is contingent on your successful completion of a background search / drug screen, the Staffing Coordinator will also facilitate this with you.


Step 6: Timekeeping and Payroll...

Prior to your start date, an On Call Staffing Coordinator will also provide timecard instructions for our on-line timekeeping system. Payroll is distributed weekly, one week in arrears, via check or direct deposit. Since On Call will be your W-2 employer during the temporary assignment or until you convert to a direct employee of our Client, we will facilitate all of your tax withholdings and distribute your W-2 form after year end.

And, Last but not Least, Ongoing Communications...

Expect to hear from us after your first day and at least monthly thereafter to see how everything is going. Conversely, should you ever have any questions or concerns on your end, please contact your Account Manager immediately. They are here to assist you!
