Job Seeker FAQ

How soon can I start working?

Our goal is to get you working as soon as possible after you have completed the full registration process. Once you have completed our application process, you will be offered appropriate positions based on your preferences and skills.

What is involved in the application process?

We've tried to make the application and registration process as simple as possible. The first step is to complete and submit our online application by selecting the 'Apply Now' quick link from our Home Page. One of our tenured recruiters will review your application and qualifications and will contact you via email or phone within 2 business days to discuss your next step.

When you come into our office, please allow approximately 2 1/2 - 3 hours to complete the entire application and testing process. Please bring 2 original forms of Government issued identification (no copies please), your 2 most recent job reference phone numbers and an updated copy of your resume, if you have one. Additionally, please be prepared to complete a criminal background check and drug test upon request.

After the application is complete, you will interview with a recruiter. In the interview, you will have the opportunity to discuss your skills and what you are looking for in your next position.

CornerStone Staffing does reference checks with previous employers and other references provided. Once references are verified, you will be offered positions based on all the factors of your interview process.

How often should I contact your office after an interview?

We encourage you to contact our office once a week to update us on your availability status. We will also contact you as we identify job opportunities that match your skills and interests.

What if I am not interested in a certain position when it is offered; is it all right 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; 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 you and you can expect the same from CornerStone Staffing. The benefit to you is that your employment with us will stay intact and we can assist you with employment opportunities in the future.

Our services are available to job seekers at no fee.

Can I apply for jobs in other offices?

Yes. Once you complete the registration process with one office, you can be considered for any job that CornerStone Staffing has available, out of any office.

Do you place candidates with felonies on their background?

CornerStone Staffing requires all applicants to submit to a criminal background check prior to placement on assignment. If an applicant does not consent to a criminal background check, his or her application will not be considered. Due to the nature of certain positions, certain convictions, guilty/no contest pleas, or deferred adjudication may disqualify an applicant from placement including, but not limited to, the following:

  • A theft crime
  • A violent crime
  • A drug offense
  • A crime against another person

This list is neither exhaustive nor determinative. In determining whether an applicant with a criminal conviction should be placed on assignment, CornerStone Staffing will consider, among other things, the nature of the offense, the date of the offense, the surrounding circumstances, rehabilitation, and the relevance of the offense to the position(s) for which the placement is sought.

CornerStone Staffing is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of an applicant's race, sex, national origin, color, religion, age, disability, or any other protected category under federal, state, or local law.

Can I do my application and testing from home?

You are encouraged to complete the online application from home; however, testing must be completed in a CornerStone office.

If I am already registered with one office, can I register with another?

No, once you are registered with one of our offices you are in our system. You can be considered for jobs out of any of our offices, regardless of where you originally completed your application.
