MEET THE TEAM
Culture is important to us. We want you to feel comfortable if you are selected for the position as much as we value the opinion of our team. This step in the process will bring you back to our office (or offsite) to have some refreshments and a simple snack or meal with all of the team you would be working with. This provides the space and time to get to know who you would be working with in a more informal setting.
The final step in the process is to conduct validation calls with your references. We will ask that you provide us professional references, which would consist of former supervisors, direct reports, and coworkers.
If selected for the position you will receive a phone call and verbal offer from your potential supervisor. At this time you would talk through an employment offer, or benefits package, and any other details necessary for you to make an informal decision. This conversation will be followed by a formal offer letter of employment through our application system. Once we receive your signed offer letter we will begin our onboarding process and alert the team!
We are so excited to assist you with onboarding! Before your first day, you will receive an electronic new hire packet that will include many important documents. These documents are tracked and completed easily within our onboarding system. During this time we may request a background check and/or drug test which will be essential for your employment with our agency.
Don’t worry if you have questions, orientation will be a great time to ask any questions or complete any withstanding onboarding documents. Our acquisition team will help you every step of the way.
