What can candidates expect of the hiring process?

Candidate information is reviewed by Human Resources and hiring managers to ensure that the minimum qualifications of education and experience are met. Qualifying candidates will be contacted to schedule telephone interviews with a member of the HR team, and those who successfully navigate the HR interview will be forwarded to the hiring manager for additional interviews/conversation, likely with several staff members.

To ensure the safety of all clients in our care, references checks, fingerprinting/criminal record checks and drug screenings will be completed on all successful candidates. In addition, select positions require a pre-employment physical to ensure that the candidate is able to successfully perform the physical aspects of the job.
