Q: What is the typical process like for someone to get hired by Silver Star Brands?

Each position is a little different. Candidates will need to interview with Human Resources either via the telephone or in person. The hiring leader typically will do a second interview; sometimes they will ask others on their team to be involved in that second interview.

At Silver Star Brands we believe that finding the right candidate for the position requires a team effort and input from more than one person. Some positions require testing candidates on ten-key and data-entry, and some positions require candidates to complete a profile assessment.

During the interview process, you have an opportunity to determine whether Silver Star Brands is a right fit for you by asking us.

Q: What will my first day or days look like? Will I get trained?

We have a complete on-boarding process for all employees. We go through a complete orientation checklist, set goals and expectations, allow you time to meet your co-workers, and explain the safety and evacuation procedures to make sure you have the information and skills to stay safe on the job.
While each position is slightly different, you will receive training to be successful at your job!
