Q.Do I need an e-mail account to set up a “user account” to apply online?
A.

YES. IMPORTANT! User accounts are established for one person only and should not be shared with another person or e-mail address. Multiple applications with multiple users and e-mail addresses may jeopardize your status in the recruitment process for any positions you apply for.



Q.What if I don't have an e-mail account?
A.

To apply online you must create an e-mail account. There are a number of free e-mail services available to the general public.



Q.How do I set up a “user account” to apply online?
A.

Use the Online Registration to create your user account.

Remember to keep a record of your username and password once you have set up an account. If you need to apply for other positions or check the status of your application, you will need to input this information exactly as it was originally entered.



Q.How do I create my application and how long will it take?
A.

On average, allow approximately 30-45 minutes to complete your application. We encourage you to complete each part of the application in detail. You can add additional work history and education as needed. Please start with most recent experience/educational information when prioritizing your information. Each time you input information, you will need to click on the Save & View Application button. If the system is inactive over 30 minutes, it will automatically log you off and will only keep information from the last time you clicked on the Save & View Application.



Q.How do I save my information?
A.

If at any time you need to exit the application, click the Save & View button at the bottom of the form. All of the information that you have inputted up to that point will be stored. You can return to your application later by logging into your account with your username and password.



Q.Can I submit a resume?
A.

You may either attach or cut and paste a resume into your application. Please note that submitting a resume does not substitute for completing the entire application form. Incomplete applications may be eliminated from consideration for employment.
