We have partnered with many homebuilders, property management companies, and partners to the Real Estate Industry throughout the years. You can view our client list to see just a sample of some of the clients we provide staffing services for.  

We do offer training to our temporary new home sales, leasing, and maintenance candidates.

New Home Sales Assistants & Leasing Consultants will be provided access to our online platform, www.RealEstateLearningNetwork.com, where they will have access to videos and written lessons to help them succeed in their career, covering topics including basic job duties, important tips, safety, fair housing, forms to use on site, and sales/leasing techniques.

Service Technicians and Porters will all be provided with a safety orientation course which includes topics including hazard evaluation, safe work practices, protective safety equipment, and how to handle a work injury. We also provide a fair housing overview, which, after reviewing, will allow them to work more assignments with our property management clients.

If you are applying for one of our temporary positions, keep in mind that they are typically part-time.  There are some ongoing assignments up to 40 hours/week. Pay is dependent on location, position type, and applicant’s skill set and experience; paid by the hour. We pay weekly and offer direct deposit for our temporary candidate’s convenience. Although temporary staffing pay is historically low enough to meet the needs of the clients we serve, these positions are often seen as “internships”, or a way to get your foot in the door and be more than a resume sitting on somebody’s desk. You are interviewing on the job and “a walking resume”, demonstrating your value each day.

Due to the temporary nature of these assignments, we do not know until the orders come in; therefore, cannot guarantee the number of hours you will work. Almost all assignments are 8 hour days, but can be short-term (1-3 days) or long-term/ongoing assignments (lasting for a few weeks to a several months).

Yes, there are several milestones that would create an opportunity for an increase in pay.  This varies by company division, state and region. An excellent question to ask in your interview with your local regional manager.

The  IRS approved look-back measurement method (which is annual at JWS) is utilized and an employee must work 130+ hours per month to be considered full time. If full time status is reached at the end of the measurement period, we offer medical insurance to all eligible employees.

Assignments will be offered to you by our Scheduling Department via email, call, and/or text; you would be able to accept or decline as your schedule permits. As a JWS Temporary Associate, it would be your responsibility to call in to express your availability to work on a weekly basis. Keeping the Scheduling Team updated with your availability allows them to contact you with available assignments that fit within your schedule so we can get you on site and keep you working.

The amount of notice we get regarding coverage needs from clients can vary. Sometimes we will call you with the assignment a few weeks prior, other times we may get the order only 24 hours or less before the start time. You are never obligated to take an assignment, but we do appreciate when candidates can help our clients in a pinch!

The amount of time it takes to get hired on full-time varies and depends on several factors including your own skill set, abilities, efforts, and willingness to go the extra mile as well as our clients’ hiring needs. We are your stepping stone into the industry and will provide you with experience, exposure, and mentorship to put you in a position to launch your career.

The success of our company is based on the reputation we have built by placing quality candidates in full-time positions with our clients. Many of the candidates we place end up becoming managers, VP’s, etc. and eventually another loyal of JWS.  We love seeing careers launched and are always happy to pave the way for the next generation of industry superstars.
