When you call or apply online, we will set an interview time. When you come in to interview, you will complete the onboarding process followed by a drug screen (except for our Austin office, where you will take the drug screen after accepting the position). You will then meet with your staffing supervisor, who will review the position(s) available positions that meet your experience and skill set.

Please call the branch directly to speak with the Staffing Supervisor listed in the positions you applied for.

Do You Hold My First Check?

We do not hold your first paycheck, but because the pay cycle runs Monday through Sunday, it will take your first week to process, so you will not receive it until the following week.

Why Should I Work With A Staffing Agency To Find A Job?

Looking for work is not easy and can be a drain of time and energy. Staffing agencies (like L.K. Jordan) help job seekers get noticed and land positions that match their qualifications at companies that are hiring. We have access to positions that may be posted elsewhere and have direct contact with the hiring managers for those positions.
