Employment Frequently Asked Questions

If I apply online, when will someone contact me about my application?

All applications are forwarded to the Director of Human Resources for review. The applications are reviewed based on what position you are applying for, whether you meet the qualification for that position, what experience you have from present/past employment and whether you have filled out the application completely. Once your application has successfully passed this step, your application moves to the next step which is a phone interview. This process could take as long as 2-5 weeks depending on how many applications are received and what positions we are hiring for at the time.

How long does the hiring process take?

Once the initial review is completed, then a phone interview is completed. if the application passes both reviews then you would be set-up for an interview in 1-2 weeks.

If I have questions about the status of my application, who should I contact?

Checking the status of your application does not improve your chances of being hired or expedite the process. The applications are further processed by the Human Resources Specialist. You may contact the Specialist at 419-725-5258 but it will not speed up the process. If you are scheduled for an interview you will either receive a letter or a phone call following the appointment in regard to the status of your application.
