What happens after you apply

UTemp Staffing will review your application. If you’re identified as having skills and experience that are a match for either a specific position or common requests, a UTemp Staffing Specialist will call you to set up an interview. We will also ask you to complete some online forms and ask for your references.

If we’re able to offer you a position, we’ll schedule an appointment for you to come to our office. At that time, we will review your employment authorization identification so that we may complete the Form I-9. We will not be able to proceed with hiring you for any UTemp position until we have completed this step. See this list of accepted identification documents.

Upon receiving an offer of employment, we will ask you to complete specific onboarding tasks in the Candidate Hire Portal and Workday.

If at any point you have additional questions or concerns about this process, please contact us directly at 206-543-3652 or
