    Yes. They will check to see if you are actually "qualified" to be the administrative assistant. The temp agencies job is to screen out candidates who walk in their door to see who is right for the position and who isn't. There are actual companies that pay for their services. So definitely.

    It is up to the temp agency to check your references and test your ability, before they send you out on a job to a qualified business.

    no, but you will have to take a battery of tests to assess your skills and taking a resume wouldn't hurt.
