Career FAQs

How can I check the status of my application? 
We encourage you to use our online system to monitor applications you have submitted. Visit our Returning Applicants page, enter your username and password, click the Application History tab and then look for the Status column. 

Do I have to apply online?
Yes, all applications must be submitted online. We offer computers in our Human Resources Department for applicants without access to a computer. In addition, we provide assistance to anyone who may not be comfortable with or able to use a computer.   

How long is the application-to-hire process?
We process a large volume of applications and employee transfers each day. Processing time for individual applications varies due to the number of qualified applicants for each position, screening and interview schedules, access to employment verification information and timing of orientation schedules.

May I apply for multiple openings? 
You’re welcome to apply for two positions at a time; however, please carefully consider whether you meet the skill and education requirements for each job and whether you have a sincere interest in each position for which you apply.

May I search for available jobs before I create an account or a profile?
Yes. Once you identify a position that interests you, create an account to apply.

Why must I provide an email address to apply?
Due to a high volume of applicants, this is our best means to communicate with you. We may contact you via email regarding the status of your application. Please provide an email address you check regularly.

What is the interview process like?
A recruiter will call each candidate to set up a date, time and location for the meeting. Depending on the position, interviews may include a member of our leadership team and peers within the department.

After all interviews are completed, candidates are notified by phone with an offer, or by email or letter when declined. If you have been selected for the job, we'll extend a formal offer, which will include a start date, compensation and benefits. Please note that all offers are contingent upon passing our required background checks and other pre-employment tests.
