How do I submit my timecards?

Click here to log in, using the username and password you used to create your employee profile. Click on Timesheet Entry and then Create New. You will choose the week you are ready to enter time for by clicking on the interactive calendar. You will enter your actual start time, Lunch Out, Lunch In, and End Times, making sure to include AM or PM. Save and submit your time once you have completed your timecard for the week.
If your manager wants you to complete a paper time card, you will need to enter your time and have your supervisor sign off at the end of the week.
Some clients submit time on the candidate’s behalf. If that is the case, your recruiter will notify you of this at the beginning of the assignment.

When do I get paid?

Most of our clients have paydays every Friday for our hourly positions. The pay period is from Sunday to Saturday and paychecks will be available the week following your pay period. For example, if your first week of work was Monday, January 2nd-Friday, January 6th, your will paid on Friday, January 13th.
If your employer does not observe this pay period, your recruiter will let you know at the beginning of the assignment.

How do I get paid?

If you receive another job offer and can provide professional notice, Dawson would be happy to work with you again should you need us as a resource. Dawson associates who leave their positions in an unprofessional manner will be ineligible to use our services in the future.
