Frequently Asked Questions

If you have never applied, you can apply on-line and then call us for a telephone interview. Or, come by our office to fill out an application and speak with a coordinator. Walk-ins are always welcome! We can review your experience, goals and interests, and then present you with fitting opportunities as they arise.

Simply visit the Search Jobs section of this site or text APPLY to 229-247-8367 for an application.

We will then contact you to conduct a telephone interview. In the interview, you will have the opportunity to discuss your background, skills, concerns and needs.

We also do reference checks with previous employers and other references provided by applicants. Once reference information is confirmed, we will present you to our clients who have openings.

As positions you are well suited for become available, Teamtemps will contact you. However, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call us as at 229-247-8367.

You can also visit the Search Jobs section of our website to view and apply for posted positions. If you are actively looking for work, we ask that you call our office once per week to keep your file active.

Not every job is going to meet the expectations you have. If you are not interested in a position, you are free to decline. We will continue to offer positions to you based on your skills and preferences.

We realize that not every position is a good fit for you; sometimes you do not know that until you have tried the position. If you are on a job and find it is not going to work for you, we ask that you contact us immediately. You may be asked to stay long enough for us to find a replacement, but we will attempt to remedy the situation as quickly as possible. As with any interaction, communication is the key. We expect open communication from you, and you can expect the same from the Teamtemps office.

Our services are provided at no fee to candidates.

  • Be on time. Too early can be just as bad as being late. Five to ten minutes ahead of schedule is a good rule of thumb. Companies may have a limited waiting area and it can make things awkward if you are too early.
  • Do not ever show up late for an interview. If you cannot show up on time for an interview, the interviewer will assume that you are not taking it seriously and that you will not take a job seriously as well.
  • Take each interview seriously. Never assume that you already have the job when you walk in the door. Confidence can go a long way towards securing the job but over-confidence can cost you the job.
  • Dress neatly and professionally. Dress appropriately for the type of position that you are applying for.
  • Don’t talk down about your previous employer. No matter how badly you dislike your former boss, you should never grumble about him/her in an interview.
  • Rehearse your answers to questions that you can count on being asked. Why did you leave your last job? What did you like best/least about your last place of employment?
  • Ask questions about the job. Three or four are plenty but they should be about the job itself, not how long is break and how much vacation do you get. An interview should be an exchange of information. And the time to ask about vacation and benefits is when you are actually being offered the position.
  • Be enthusiastic. You have to show interest and motivation to be a top candidate. Be polite, confident and energetic but not over the top.
  • Thank the interviewer for taking the time to see you. You shouldn’t act like you are doing them a favor by coming in to interview.
  • Dress neatly and professionally. Dress appropriately for the type of position that you are applying for.
  • Make sure that you are neat and clean. Be aware of your personal hygiene. Your clothes should not be wrinkled or stained. Avoid perfumes or cologne that is too heavy. Stick with a very light, clean scent. Some people may be allergic. You don’t want someone to remember your interview because they sneezed all the way through it.
  • Avoid any extreme fashion statements. Stay conservative in your appearance for your interview. You want the interview to be about you and your skills. Your appearance does not need to be too loud for people to see that.
  • Avoid attire that you would wear to a club or out to a party. Don’t wear anything that is too low cut or revealing. You want to avoid a wardrobe malfunction. This includes loud and flashy jewelry.
  • You don’t have to wear a suit unless the position that you are . applying for calls for one. If you are applying for an industrial job – warehouse or production – wear a pair of khakis or even nice jeans and a neat shirt. If you are applying for an office job – khakis and a button-down shirt for men and a nice pair of black slacks and a neat blouse for a woman.
  • Fix your hair. If it is unruly, pull it back neatly.
  • Your resume should not be overly long. If you have been in the work-field for 5-10 years, your resume should be one page. If you are a mid-career candidate, two pages.
  • Make your resume easy to read by using bullets, indents, bold or italics. Avoid unconventional (or unprofessional) fonts. Don’t add photos or graphics.
  • Make sure that the dates are clear and without gaps.
  • Be organized. Focus on your previous jobs first. Start with the most recent and work backwards. Leave off the jobs that you had when you were in high school or college if those have been years ago.
  • Be accurate and honest about the information that you include. Employers do verify the information that you include. Don’t exaggerate.
  • List the job duties that you held. But make it interesting. Focus on your accomplishments.
  • If you are applying for a specific job, make sure to highlight your skills and abilities that match the requirements of the job. Don’t assume that the reader will know that just because you worked for a CPA firm that you have accounting experience. You need to make it clear that you have the skills that they are searching for.
  • Be sure to bullet the important skills that make you stand out.
  • You want to emphasize how you will add worth to the company should they hire you.
  • Provide the reader with relevant details about your past employers. For instance, if you put on your application that you worked for a major retailer but you actually worked as an administrative assistant at their distribution center, you could give the person reading your application the wrong impression about what type of job you held.
  • Include extracurricular professional activities, organizations, etc. in which you are involved. Keep it brief and do not include hobbies. Organizations do like employees who are well-rounded.
  • List your education. If you have a degree, make sure to list it. Many times, education can tip the scales in your favor. 
  • Keep it professional. Don’t add too many “personal” details.
  • Proofread. Proofread. Proofread. It is a major “turn-off” to an employer to get a resume that has too many errors. They will assume that if you don’t proofread your resume that you won’t proofread your work should they hire you. Pay attention to the details.
  • Most of all, keep in mind that your resume is your FIRST IMPRESSION. If you don’t make a good impression with your resume, you may not be given the opportunity to make any other impression, good or otherwise.
