The Application Process

  1. Applications are processed in the Human Resources Department then forwarded to the hiring department. If a closing date is listed on the job posting, applications must be received by the Human Resources Department before 5:00 p.m. on that closing date. Due to the volume of applications received we are not able to acknowledge receipt of each one.
  2. After the application deadline date, the hiring department reviews the applications and selects those applicants to be interviewed.
  3. The period of time it takes to hire someone can be impacted by several factors; number of applications received, the number of job openings within the hiring department, the workload of the department, holidays, supervisor and department head schedules and any unexpected events.
  4. After an offer of employment has been made, the applicant will be required to submit to a Drug Screen procedure and to a background check, driver’s history, and/or credit check. Unsatisfactory results will result in the conditional offer of employment being withdrawn.
  5. After the position is filled, all candidates interviewed for the position will receive notification that the selection process is complete.
  6. Applications are considered active for six (6) months from the application date. During that time, an applicant does not have to complete another application unless the information on his/her application changes. To be considered for additional job openings, the applicant may simply notify the Human Resources Department of his/her name and the advertised opening for which they wish to apply. After six (6) months, an applicant must submit a new application.
