Resume review
A member of our Human Resources team will review your information. This can happen up to two weeks after you apply. If your qualifications match the job requirements, we will contact you for a phone interview. If your qualifications aren’t right for the job, we’ll send you an email letting you know.

Phone interview
If applicable, a phone interview is conducted by a Human Resources professional. It allows us to get more information from you to determine if an in-person interview is warranted. The phone interview can last up to one hour.

In-person interview
If you are a viable candidate for the job, we will schedule an in-person interview. You will meet with the manager or managers who are looking to fill the position. You may also meet other people from the department. The interview process can be several hours long.

Reference check
This is the final step in the hiring process.  We will contact each of the references you provided.  This step takes about five to seven days. If everything checks out and we decide to offer you the job, a Human Resource professional will contact you with a verbal offer of employment.
