Application and Hiring Process
You are invited to request reasonable accommodations for assistance during the application process. If you have any questions, call our HR & Compliance Manager at 907-225-7825.
Complete an application, either online or paper. If a resume is included, it can only substitute for the education and employment history section of the application. Fill out all other sections. Be sure to sign and date your application. An incomplete application will not be processed.
Once the application is received, it is reviewed for minimum qualifications. Due to the large amount of applications received, interviews will be based on qualifications most closely matching the job requirements of the position applied for.
Applicants will be notified of their application status within one week, by letter or phone. Applications not selected for the interview process will be retained for 90 days. To be re-considered for employment after 90 days, a new application will need to be submitted.
Before a position is offered, a minimum of 3 references (at least 2 professional) are required. Please make sure all references and previous employer phone numbers are up-to-date.
