How long does it take to apply when I come into the Focus Office?

It usually takes about an hour but depends upon the type of position applying for and how busy we are.  We will complete an interview, skills testing, and other screening requirements at this time.

Am I guaranteed a job? What’s the likelihood I get a job?

We hire lots of people! So, chances are pretty good. However, we simply are not able to hire or guarantee a job for every applicant due to a variety of reasons such as more job applicants than open jobs, lack of assignments available, skill mismatches, experience, availability, unable to make contact with you, etc.

How often do I get paid?

Focus pays weekly. The day of your paycheck varies by client company and location. When you are assigned to a job, you will be given detailed information including all payroll information.

How long until I get an assignment?

Depending upon the type of job you are applying for and the corresponding screening requirements you can receive a job in as little as one day or less!  Jobs that require drug screening, background checks, and other pre-screening requirements may take longer.  However, we are not able to promise that you will get a job.

What are the requirements to work for Focus?

Different jobs have different requirements.  But, at the minimum you must be at least 18 years of age and have some job history.  Since all of our jobs are industrial, warehouse, or manufacturing jobs most of our jobs require the ability to lift, bend, sit, and stand all day every day with no restrictions.

Do you offer permanent jobs or only temporary jobs? How long will my assignment be?

Our jobs vary vastly in terms of location, duties, and length of assignment. As a company, we do not use the word “permanent” as it is very subjective (is permanent 6 months, one year, five years?).  However, all of our clients are large companies, many with numerous long-term opportunities. Most of our jobs begin as short-term assignments and depending upon numerous variables, can turn into long-term or direct hire jobs with our customers.  If you need a job, we encourage you to apply.

Who should I call if I have an injury, payroll questions, or need to report job related issues?
