After You Apply
What to Expect
Once you have applied for a Corporate, IT, Distribution or Manufacturing position, you will receive a confirmation email and a
second email letting you know whether or not you meet the required qualifications for the position.
It is very important that you monitor your email daily for communications you may receive during the selection process.
Some candidates for hourly positions receive an email inviting them to take an online clerical test. If you do, the email will
include a test key that you must use within 48 hours to be further considered for the position.
What Hiring Managers Look For
We often receive dozens of applications for hourly openings and several hundred applications for salaried openings. Hiring
managers look for the candidates who best match the qualifications of the position that is open. In addition to meeting the
required qualifications of a position, most of those who are hired meet many or most of the preferred qualifications.
Hiring manager throughout the company use different screening methods to narrow the field of applicants to the most qualified
candidates. Many use phone interviews, which typically lasts about 30 minutes. They ask a series of questions to find
out more about a candidate's work experience, computer skills, and career goals. Sometimes, these phone interviews
are conducted with videoconference technology.
When hiring managers have further narrowed the field, they invite a handful of candidates to our corporate offices or
support facilities either for testing or for a face-to-face interview, or for both. The tests can take 30 minutes to
several hours, depending on the position. There is nothing you need to do in advance to prepare for these tests.
The interview can take 45 minutes to several hours, depending on the position. In some cases, candidates are
invited back for several interviews to meet with others who are part of the selection process. Here are
tips to prepare for an interview.
Monitor Your Email
Please note that your invitations for phone interviews, in-person testing, or in-person interviews may arrive
by email, so don't assume these communications will be conducted by phone.
