How Our Process Works


If you're a new applicant and not sure what to expect, please know that we want to ensure you have all the necessary information to be successful in your job search.  Please remember, DPS is not the only vehicle for employment opportunities.  Because of the volume of responses we receive, we will contact you if your skills and experience match the job opportunities available. We encourage all of our applicants to sign up for job alerts to receive up to date information on our newest job opportunities.


We recruit based on basic qualifications, typically we are reviewing the last 6 months of your most recent employment history as our clients require recent experience. However, skill, education, background, employment history and references are all a part of our evaluation process. 

Applcant Process

Here's how our onboarding process works:


During the interview, we assess skill and personality through interaction, documentation and skill based assessments. 

NOTE: We are currently conducting all interviews remotely due to the COVID-19 situation.


Your invitation to orientation means you have been selected as a qualified candidate. During orientation, DPS reviews all information regarding policies and procedures.

NOTE: We are currently conducting all orientations remotely due to the COVID-19 situation.


Once we've identified a position that fits your qualifications, we will contact you to review the details of the position. Once reviewed, we will present your profile to our clients.

Most of our clients require a presentation of several qualified candidates to choose from. Once they have selected a candidate we will let you know either way.


The Compliance phase of our process includes DPS and client requirements. This can include any of the following items: background check, verification of education or employment, pre-employment healthcare requirements (immunizations, drug screen, nicotine screen), and other items.

Our HR Reps will walk you through this process.


Once you've been cleared by our HR Team and the client, you will be sent an assignment confirmation via email and your staffing coordinator will call to review the details. 

Make sure you have all the information necessary including pay rate, first pay day, parking and uniform instructions.

Follow Up & Availability

Follow up throughout your assignment is required. From here we'll want to know how your assignment is going. 

If you are not on an assignment, it is required that you submit your availability regularly to remain active in our system.


All applicants are subject to Dean's Professional Services employment policy, including but not limited to participation in drug screening, background check, and / or healthcare worker pre-employment screenings.
