Most employers don’t prepare you on what to expect during your interview process. From how long the process will take to what kinds of questions will be asked, the candidate is oftentimes left guessing. This typically contributes more nerves to the situation. At Performance Staffing Solutions, we strive for you to have the best experience possible, from the moment you apply to your first day on the job. Our interview process is focused on getting to know you and what you need to be successful. All interviews are in person at one of our four locations conveniently located around Charlotte, NC and in Rock Hill, SC. Let us dive a little deeper into our process.
There is no denying that job interviews can be stressful and intimidating. In a way, they feel a bit like a blind date where you and the hiring manager are trying to determine if there is a “fit.” Of course, there is plenty of information available online about how to provide an answer to common questions, but you must also be prepared to be faced with strange questions—proverbial curveballs—and be able to think quickly, providing a response that is appreciated by the interviewer.
Are you preparing for a career change or about to enter the workforce for the first time and are unsure where to go from here? A skilled trade might be a great option for you! A skilled trade is traditionally a hands-on craft requiring a specific knowledge, ability, or skill set to perform successfully. You can find skilled trades as a necessity in many career fields. Some include welding, electrical, carpentry, painting, machinist, metal fabricator, and many others. There are many benefits to becoming a skilled tradesman that can help advance your career (and your wallet)!
It is no secret that hiring, and employee retention have been challenging over the past year or so. With newfound expectations, job seekers are being pickier than ever when it comes to deciding what position they should take next. Although job seekers are scarce, open positions are plentiful. Employers are beginning to navigate this situation by implementing quiet hiring.
Not having reliable transportation can be a tricky situation to navigate when you are employed. On one hand, you need to be working to support yourself and/or family, but on the other hand, depending on a source of transportation that is outside of your control can be stressful. It’s important to remember that we are all human and at the end of the day, we can’t put our entire life on hold due to the circumstances we are experiencing. Just because you don’t have a car, or a license, doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be able to work. That is why we are here to help you navigate through this all-too-common situation.
As the workforce is still recovering from the impact of Covid-19, we are finally beginning to see some relief for employees and employers. The years 2020-2022 were full of unpredictable changes in available workers, wage demands, increased desire for remote/hybrid working, and the necessity for layoffs. With the new year ahead of us, 2023 is projected to bring changes for the better to position us back to where we were pre-pandemic.
Attending a job interview can be a nerve-racking experience. Most people will go through the interview process at some point, whether it is for employment, internships, or even getting into a club, program, or school. The stress of attending an interview is almost as common as the stress of public speaking. Being nervous can throw off your thought process and cause you to be even more stressed about answering the interviewers' questions. With the proper preparation techniques, it’s possible to mitigate your nervousness and allow you to be the best and most confident version of yourself during your interview.
Searching for the perfect job that fits exactly what you are looking for can be difficult, frustrating, and time-consuming. You could spend hours reading job descriptions and end up only applying to a few that meet your criteria. Next, you’ll wait an extended amount of time before you hear back to just begin the interview process. Then comes completing at least one, maybe a couple of interviews, waiting for the results of a background check and/or drug screen, and then you might finally have a new job, weeks after you originally began looking. Staffing agencies can help ease the stress of searching for a new job and even get you hired faster and more easily than if you do if you go through the process yourself.
