Recruitment and Hiring During COVID-19!
The health and safety of our team members, residents and their families is our priority! And, if you are wondering if we our still hiring, the answer is YES!
Our hiring process has changed due to the pandemic. Here are a few things you need to know:
The Human Resources recruitment team and hiring managers are using a combination of phone interviews, in-person interviews and video conference interviews. When the recruiter contacts you, they will explain the process in more detail. For everyone’s safety we are following the CDC’s social distancing protocols.
For In-Person Interviews:
Please understand that we are screening all those entering our communities. You will be directed by the recruiter where to go for your on-campus screening. The screening includes a temperature check and a few questions for you to answer. If you are scheduled for an in-person interview and are not feeling well on the day of the interview, please call the recruiter to reschedule the interview.
