1. How soon can I start working?
Job availability changes on a daily basis. If you meet Madden’s hiring standards and the application process is complete, you will be considered based on your preferences and skills, and will be offered appropriate positions.
2. What is involved in the application process?
After completing an application online, including complete work history, one of our staffing professionals will review the application, and complete a phone interview.
After the prescreening and application is complete, a staffing professional will schedule an interview. In the interview, you will have the opportunity to discuss your vocational skills and your preferences for your next position. The staffing professional will discuss your skill set, and explore your work experience. Once the interview is complete, you will participate in basic safety training.
As part of the application process, Madden completes reference checks with previous employers and other references provided by applicants. Once the reference review is complete, you will be matched to appropriate jobs based on the factors discussed during the application and interview process.

4. What if I am not interested in a certain position when it is offered; is it all right to turn it down?
Not every job is going to meet the expectations you have. If you are not interested in a position, you are free to decline. We will continue to offer positions to you based on your skills and preferences.
5. What if I am on an assignment and decide it is not for me?
We realize that not every job is a good fit for you, and that sometimes you do not discover that until you have tried the position. If you are on an assignment and find it is not going to work for you, we ask that you contact us immediately. If the concern you have is not safety related, you may be asked to stay at an assignment 5 days or long enough for us to find a replacement, and we will attempt to find a more appropriate placement for you as quickly as possible.
As with any interaction, communication is the key. We expect open communication from our employees and you can expect the same from the Madden team.
6. What do I pay for your services?
Our services are provided at no fee to candidates.
