FAQs

Do I have to pay anything to find a job through Carlton Staffing, Carltech, or Carlton Accounting & Finance?

No. Our services are always free of charge to job seekers.

How do I get started?

Your first step is to Apply for Jobs online or Submit a Resume if there is no current posting that matches your background.

We will reach out to you if your qualifications align with our open positions. At that time, we will schedule an appointment for you to meet with a Staffing Consultant at one of our conveniently located Carlton branches. If you are not contacted within 48 hours, please call to confirm that we have received your information!

What should I expect of my interview at Carlton?

You should prepare for a formal job interview. Dress professionally and be prepared to discuss your skills, knowledge and goals. You should plan to spend about an hour to an hour and a half with a Staffing Consultant. In addition to the interview, you should be prepared to take a skills evaluation if you have not already completed one online.

What information should I plan to provide for my interview/appointment with Carlton?

You will need to bring the following to your appointment:

  1. Document(s) which will verify your identity and your eligibility to work in the United States. A list of acceptable documents can be found here.
  2. A copy of your resume.
  3. Contact information for all jobs listed on your application. We require a minimum of two references. Provide contact information for at least two former employers/supervisors. Other options could be former peers, subordinates, clients, vendors, or volunteer work.
