What happens after you receive my application?

The recruitment team will review your qualifications, if there is a suitable position currently available, you will then be notified for a personal interview. Otherwise your resume will be retained on our database for jobs that match your education, skills and work-related experience. It is important that you update us in regards to your availability as well as any other positions you may be interested in.

Once you have completed the interview and any skill testing that is required , you will then be recommended for further interviews with our clients.

If I am a temporary employee, how do I get paid?

When you are a temporary employee, you will be paid on a bi-weekly basis through Okanagan Staffing Services. You are required to fill out a time sheet that will be approved and signed by a supervisor at the assignment. You must email or fax to our office by Monday at 9 am of the following week.

You are paid hourly in addition to 4% vacation pay bi-weekly. Your pay cheque will be deposited by way of direct deposit.

 Criminal record checks can and will be done if requested by our clients.

I’ve applied and sent my resume. Why haven’t I heard anything back?

Only if short-listed for an applied position, we will  contact with you to set up an interview and possibly some testing.

I’ve already applied/registered, but I want to be considered for a current position listed on the Job Postings page. What do I do?

If you’ve already applied with us as a temporary employee and you have now located a job that you are suitable for on our job page. You are welcome to reapply with a cover page for those permanent full time positions, providing us with the necessary information. Email (jobs@okanaganstaffing.com) or reception@okanaganstaffing.com

Please include the Reference # and Job Title in your email subject line as we have many positions advertised at one time. This will ensure your application is considered for the position you are interested in.

What do I do if I have agreed to work a temporary assignment but I can not make it in to work due to illness, or other circumstances?

It is very important that you contact us as soon as you realize you cannot cover your assignment either by phone (250-717-0506) or email Reception@okanaganstaffing.com no matter what time of day it is. We will forward the information to our client and arrange for someone else to take over if necessary. If you do accept an assignment it is very important that you realize that our client and ourselves are relying on you to follow through as promised. Please only cancel if completely necessary.
