Once you apply, your application is reviewed and, if your qualifications meet the minimum requirements, moved forward on an ongoing basis to the hiring manager for further consideration. Once the position closes, the hiring manager ranks the applications based on the experience, skills, and abilities shown in the information provided by the candidate in comparison with the job announcement. Additional screening and/or testing may be done at this time. The hiring manager and Human Resources then interviews the most qualified candidates. Depending on the number of qualified applications for a position, only a select number of individuals may receive invitations for interviews. Following the interviews, an applicant is selected and a job offer is extended, contingent on the results of a post-offer, pre-employment Background Check and Drug Screen. The extent of the background checks depends on the position and may include criminal history, credit history, etc. All other candidates are then notified that they werenot selected for the position.
