Job Seeker FAQ

How do we get paid?

As an employee of J. Morrissey, it is your responsibility to arrive at an assignment each week with a J. Morrissey time card, to fill it out completely, have it signed by your supervisor, fax it, email it by the end of the workday on each Friday. Please call J. Morrissey to confirm that it was received. Failure to receive confirmation of an approved time card by the Friday deadline will result in your check being processed the following week. Note: in the event that you are scheduled to work weekends, please call J. Morrissey to let us know that your timecard will be late. In this case, we will be able to accommodate you.

When filling out your time card, please make sure that it is complete before sending it to us. It must contain your name, address, dates worked, company name and address, hours worked, weekly hours, and Client Company’s signature. Please round all hours to the nearest quarter (“.25”). For example, if you worked 30 hours and 43 minutes, round it off to 30.75.

Checks are distributed weekly. Please check with J. Morrissey for any changes to the payroll schedule that may occur during holiday weeks. You are also responsible for making sure that J. Morrissey has your up to date payroll information.

Do you offer medical insurance benefits while temporary associates are on contract?

Can you help me with my resume?

Absolutely! Our recruiters have years of experience in working with resumes, and it is in our best interest to have a great resume to present to our clients.

How many of the assignments are temp-to-hire?

We love when an opportunity turns into a successful direct hire position. Many of the assignments turn into permanent positions but are not guaranteed. Best rule of thumb is to do your best on the temp assignment which might increase your chances for consideration.

What if I have an emergency that affects my schedule?

You must call (not email) your J. Morrissey office as soon as possible (third party calls are not normally acceptable). If it is off-hours you can leave a message that we can react to quickly. You may also call your site supervisor, but we are your employer and must be made aware. Any planned changes or time off must also be communicated to our office and your manager timely.

You can fill apply to any position on our website and submit your resume electronically. A recruiter will call you if you are a skilled match. You are also welcome to call either our Springfield or Windsor office to inquire. Your call will be directed accordingly.
