Seeking employment is a challenge in and of itself. At MWS, we work hard to get you on the road to stable career focused employment. We work with the best employers in the St. Louis area and match your skills with available opportunities to meet your goals.
MWS is a division of Employment Connection, a nonprofit serving the St. Louis region for over 40 years. In addition to employment services, we offer additional support services that may be beneficial to you. If you need any of the following services, please complete the Intake Application Form and someone will respond to you.
What types of jobs do you have?Employment Connection has a various array of opportunities from hospital workers, to clerical and administrative positions to construction and restaurant positions. More professional opportunities can be found through our recruiting arm MWS Select.
How soon can I start working?Employment Connection knows that you are excited to jump back into the workforce, and we want to get you there as fast as possible. We pride ourselves on being able to put clients to work within 24 – 48 hours depending on the prescreening requirements. If you come in to apply on Monday, you could likely walk out with an assignment for the very next day!
When do I get paid?All clients are paid weekly on Fridays. Recognizing the importance of self-sufficiency, Employment Connection works hard to get all clients paid every week on Fridays. When clients apply, they will have the option to choose between a direct deposit payment, or a cash card payment. If you choose a cash card, you’ll need to call the number on the back to activate the card, but you can ONLY do so at noon or later on the Friday of your first paycheck. If you want to be paid via direct deposit, please bring either a voided check or a direct deposit form from your bank when you apply. Should you have any concern about your pay, we ask that you check your check stubs online to review details. If you still have questions, please call payroll asap so that we can help you sort out your concern.
I don’t have transportation – will that be an issue?Nope! Employment Connection recognizes that no matter how hard you want to work, sometimes there are barriers that you simply can’t budge. To ensure your long-term success, Employment Connection offers transportation assistance to our clients. If a job is accessible by public transit, Employment Connection will assist you with public transit cards/passes until your first paycheck.
