- Pre-employment questionnaire – A simply series of questions asked to candidates to further qualify their skills and experience.
- Phone Pre-Screening Interview – This a quick 30min call with the recruiter to get to know the candidate to explain the position and go over their resume. During this call, the candidate will have the opportunity to ask any preliminary questions.
- Face-to-Face Video Interview – This video call is with the actual hiring manager for any particular position. This call is held via an online video conferencing software. The candidate will be responsible for scheduling and logging in to the appropriate software when appropriate.
- Background check – We do perform background checks on each candidate that has successfully passed the interview stage. Our background check can include, but is not limited to, a candidate’s work history, education, criminal record, and use of social media. However, please be advised, while we perform a comprehensive background check, we do not disqualify simply based on these results. We are open to discussing any items identified in a candidates’ background history. Please do not be discouraged if you have negative items on your background history, we look at the total individual and based our hiring decisions accordingly.
- References check – Please be prepared to provide previous work history references that can verify your experience.
- Pre-employment skills testing – Candidates who are successful will be required to take a skills test assessing their customer service skills (i.e. dealing with difficult customers…). In addition, a voice skills test will be required. During this voice skills test we are looking for normal everyday professional voice skills using proper enunciation and diction. Voice skills tests will be done remotely by calling a telephone number where you will read a scripted message to be recorded.
