Q: How long does it take to get a job?
We first process your application and after that, we will schedule an interview. Once you interview, our recruiter will discuss with you what openings we have and what is suitable for you. It then depends on what openings we have at the time and if you are qualified. Sometimes our clients like to interview our candidates and that can take a little while to get you placed. We try to find something that will be a good match for our employees as well as our clients.
Q: What is the pay?
The pay is based on experience and skill along with what our client sets the pay to be. After you are hired on it may increase depending on the client. It usually depends on the position you are applying for. The pay varies; the more skills and experience you have the better the pay may be.
Q: How often will I be paid?
DES pays weekly and is always a week behind. For instance, if you work the week of November 5 - November 11 (Sunday - Saturday) the company you’re working for turns in your time to us on Monday the 13th. Then you get paid on Friday November 17th. We don't hold a week, you always get paid for the week prior, even on your last check if you stop working. Our payday is every Friday after 10:00am. When you get hired on by the client it may vary.
Q: Do you pay daily?
No, we do not pay daily. We pay weekly and you get paid every Friday.

You have a choice to get a paycheck, you can sign up for a Pay Card and have it deposited onto the card or we also offer direct deposit through some of our clients. If you are unable to pick up your check between 10 am - 5 pm on Friday, I would recommend our pay card or direct deposit. You will need to bring in your photo ID if you are picking up your check.
Q: What are the hours?
Depending on the assignment, it could be as little as 4 hours or as much as 40+ hours per week. DES has shifts available during the day, evening or night. The client sets the hours, not DES.

It depends on the assignment and how far you are willing to drive. We work with companies throughout the cities we’re located in and surrounding areas. We give you the location, map and check the distance from your home before you ever go on an assignment.

This depends on the client, we have positions that are entry level and will train. Others will require on the job experience before you start the position.

Normally 520 hours however it could be different depending on what was determined by the client.

It is all based on your work performance and attendance.
Q: What do I do if I don’t like the job I get?
We always try to make sure that you know everything you will be doing at the assignment we think you’ll be a good fit for. If you do not like your assignment you are given you need to let us know immediately. If you walk off of a job or do not complete an assignment, we will not place you in the future. We ask that you communicate with us and let us know what is going on. If you let us know we will work with you to transition you out of the current assignment into a new one but we will need to replace you before you can be taken away from a client. We won’t move you from one job to another unless all you want is a variety of short term assignments. If for whatever reason your assignment ends, you are still a DES employee and can be reassigned.
Q: Do you provide transportation; do you have anything on the bus line?
We do not provide transportation. Most of our office locations have jobs on, or close to, the bus line that we can put you at so you have a for sure ride to work. It just depends on what you are looking for. For the most part, we ask you to have some form of reliable transportation for the jobs that we offer and aren’t available on the public transportation.
