Frequently Asked Questions

Q.  How soon can I start working?

A.  Job availability changes on a daily basis. Once our application process is complete, you will be considered based on your skills and will be offered appropriate positions.


Q.  What is involved with the application process?

A.  Our application can be filled out simply by clicking here.  If you don’t have access to a computer or hand-held device, you can come to our office and complete the application in person. You will be asked to provide a resume with complete work history and references. Trade Team performs reference checks with previous employers and other references provided by applicants to confirm employment and skills.

After the application is complete, you will interview one of our recruiters. In the interview, you will have the opportunity to discuss what vocational skills you have and what you are looking for in your next position. The recruiter will discuss not only what specific skills you have, but also find out more about your experiences in job-related settings. For skilled positions, you may be asked to complete a skills evaluation at our testing facility. For office and professional positions, you may be required to complete one or more tests related to your field of expertise.

Once you are offered and accept a position, you will go through orientation, which includes a pre-employment medical exam, drug test, completion of on boarding paperwork and safety training. Upon completion of orientation, you will receive your company badge, PPE and the details of your work assignment.


Q.  How often should I contact your office after an interview?

A.  Trade Team has a check-in line which applicants are encouraged to use to maintain availability. You will be asked to leave your name, phone number, and what type of work you are interested in. We realize that it is not always convenient for you to check in on a daily basis, you are simply encouraged to stay in touch with our office so we are aware of your availability.


Q.  What if I am not interested in a certain position when it is offered? Is it all right to turn it down?

A.  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.


Q.  What if I am on an assignment and decide it is not for me?

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


Q.  What do I pay for your services?

A.  As an applicant, you will not pay for any of the services Trade Team provides.
