Prospective employees complete a very thorough application process before being
considered for hire with Northwest Staffing Resources. Only those applicants who have high test scores, low risk Insight results,
strong references and a pleasant, professional attitude will be considered qualified
to work for NSR.
Our application process includes:
Thorough Paperwork and Employment History
All of our applicants complete our thorough application, which includes employment
history, skills, NSR Hiring Standards, our Drug & Alcohol Policy and our Background
& Credit Check Policy. All applicants must agree to follow these policies. We provide
all applicants a copy of the "NSR Handbook for Temporary Employees."
Software and Skills Testing
Applicants are given a battery of written and hands-on skill tests to ensure their
level of competency for the position they seek. Our ProveIt!
testing program is an interactive, hands-on skill evaluation. ProveIt! also offers
tutorials for our temporary employees looking to improve their software skills in
a certain program.
Workplace Behavioral Survey
Applicants take the Insight Worldwide
This survey provides a background profile designed to determine an individual's
propensity toward substance abuse, theft, violence, dependability and workers compensation
fraud. The survey will highlight any unacceptable behaviors.
Interview with a Recruiter
After the paperwork and testing are complete, applicants meet with a Recruiter for
a final determination of skill level, discussion of work history, explanation of
pay system and job location preferences. During this interview, we assess the candidate’s
attitude toward work, desire to fulfill their employment requirements and commitment
to our high job performance standards.
Applicants are shown a safety video and are tested on their comprehension. Our Return-to-Work
Program and hazardous materials handling are also discussed. NSR is very proactive
in ensuring the safety of all temporary employees as well as permanent NSR and client
Our staff verifies three previous job references prior to final approval for employing
the new applicant.
