If brought through the AWG hiring process, when can I expect work?
There is no set time frame or guarantee for starting work through AWG. Receiving AWG job offers is dependent on three main factors:
- What positions AWG currently has available
- What availability and interest an employee has compared to the jobs that are available
- Any delay with processing your application (i.e. waiting on certificates, references, testing, etc.)
AWG strives to offer applicants positions as soon as possible, sometimes even at the end of their interview! However, for the reasons stated above, it may take a few days, a few weeks or even longer to receive an offer. Being open to trying positions is key if you are very eager to get to work.
How can I stay aware of current job openings?
To stay on top of all current job openings and their details, check out our Employment Openings. If you are an active AWG candidate, make sure that you are checking in available and discussing job openings with the AWG team.
How often should I check in as available?
Checking in with AWG lets us know an employee’s motivation level and keeps them fresh in our minds when a new position becomes available.
- For production and labor positions: call-in as available at least every other day during office hours.
- For administrative and skilled trades positions: call-in available at least once a week during office hours.
However, we encourage you to check-in as often as you like, our recruiters greatly enjoy speaking to our employees and making job connections as quickly as possible!
How will I receive notice of a job offer?
A recruiter will make the initial job offer over the phone, so please ensure AWG has your most up to date contact information and that you have a voicemail box set up.
Many of our positions are first come first serve and delays in responding or accepting an offer may mean that it is accepted by another candidate.
What happens if I decline an offer?
No, we do not want people to accept positions that they are not interested in. We do however, want feedback as to WHY you have declined the offer. This allows AWG to understand what would be a better fit for you so the next position we offer can be one you want to accept.
