Preparing for your interview at Peak Performers

Welcome to Peak Performers! We are Austin’s preferred staffing and recruiting firm for contract positions with State of Texas government agencies. As a nonprofit, we’re also driven by the mission to create a new standard of employment for qualified applicants with a disability.

We’ve compiled some information to help you know what to expect at your interview appointment. If you haven’t submitted your resume to be reviewed by our recruitment department, you can do so by clicking here.

Getting to Our Office (4616 Triangle Ave, Suite 405)

We are conveniently located in a commercial and residential development known as The Triangle, just off of North Lamar Boulevard. If you come at lunchtime, we’re auspiciously situated next door to Hopdoddy (although we recommend eating your burger after the interview). Our office is directly across the street from a five-story parking garage. There is free, accessible parking on the street and in the garage. We’re also conveniently located near stops for several major bus routes, including the 1, 801 and 803.

The Interview

The entire interview and registration process typically takes 1.5 to 2 hours. Prior to your arrival, you’ll receive an email with a link to our application paperwork. To save you some time, we recommend filling it out ahead of time. If you don’t have access to a computer, you’re also welcome to arrive early and fill it out at our office. Please keep in mind that the online paperwork takes most people 15-20 minutes to complete.

When you arrive for your appointment, you’ll check in with one of our friendly front office coordinators. While it’s not completely necessary to bring a copy of your resume to the appointment, it might be helpful if you have an updated or specialized version. If you’ve been invited for an interview, we most likely have a copy in our system already.

Once you finish the initial paperwork, you’ll interview with one of our staffing consultants so they can determine the best fit for your individual goals, skill set, and level of experience.

We recommend dressing to impress and being prepared for a professional interview. We are committed to using a fair and standard set of interview questions for each candidate. While we cannot guarantee job placement, our staffing consultants work hard to create the best match for you and the agency clients we serve.

During our registration process, you’ll be asked if you have a disability or chronic medical condition. We understand that this can be sensitive information and many people are reluctant to discuss their disability or medical condition (especially in an employment situation). Keep in mind that the answer you provide is completely confidential. At our company, we recognize that disabilities have little to no bearing on an individual’s skills and capabilities. In fact, we give a job placement priority to qualified candidates with a chronic medical condition.

Skills Assessments

Following the interview, be prepared to complete a standard set of computer-based assessments. These evaluations are important to help us find the right match for each position. If you’re not satisfied with your test results, we also offer free tutorials that can be completed at home. When you feel more confident, you can schedule an appointment to re-test and we’d be happy to use your best set of scores.

Becoming a Peak Performer

Once the registration process is complete, your information is then entered into our system. At that point, you are encouraged to text in your availability (512-453-8833) once per week. As we receive new job openings, our staffing consultants search our database for qualified and available candidates. If you are matched with a job, a staffing consultant will reach out to you to discuss the position in further detail.

Congratulations, you’re on your way to becoming a Peak Performer!
