Frequently Asked Questions

When do you want to start working? In many cases, you can start a position within a day or two. In other cases, it may be a week; or a bit longer, depending on your availability and the positions.

Yes! We have jobs with organizations who are cannabis friendly. We also have jobs which are not, for one reason or another. The important part is that you’re honest with us so that we can place you in a position where there isn’t an issue.

No! You have a say in what type of position you’ll accept, and where. That is why we have in-depth conversations about your skills, interests, work style, work environment and more so that we can understand the type of position that fits your needs.

Nope! We offer a wide range of job types – some are temporary, yes, but most are long-term temp-to-hire, while others are direct placement.

Think of us as your partner in your job search effort. You don’t stop searching, but also know that we are looking for opportunities on your behalf as well! Often, we hear of positions before they’ve even been posted, giving us an opportunity to submit your resume before everyone else. Further, we have relationships with hiring managers to seek feedback – whether your resume is under review, or why you may or may not have been selected for the position. With us on your side, you have a “real person” to talk with about how your job search is going!

No! Our fees are paid by our client companies. There is no cost to you as an employee.

You can complete our application online. You will be asked to provide work history information as well as preference of shift, type of work, and preference of location. After the application is complete, you may be invited to interview with a recruiter. In the interview, you will have the opportunity to discuss your skills, experience 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. Once you have completed the interview, you will go through basic safety training. For office and professional positions, you may be asked to do some computer testing to determine skill levels. West Sound Workforce conducts reference checks with previous employers and other references you provide. Once reference information is complete, you will be offered jobs based on all the factors that make up your application and interview process.

We realize not every job will be a good fit for you. Sometimes you will not know that until you have tried the position. If you are on an assignment and find it will not work for you, we 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 remedy 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 West Sound Workforce office.
