The screening process includes a review of the candidate's background, job history and position expectations. A face-to-face interview is then scheduled with the hiring manager and other team members as necessary. If a job offer is extended to the candidate, a verbal offer is made by the recruiter who conducted the initial interview.

Once the candidate accepts the position, he/she will receive additional information, forms and paperwork to complete. A criminal background check and drug-screening process will be initiated. When all items are satisfactorily met, a provisional offer of employment is extended and orientation is scheduled.
