What is the overall application process?
Our general hiring process follows these steps:
You must apply for a position online: https://careers-omrf.icims.com/. Most positions require the uploading of a resume or Curriculum Vitae (CV) as well.
Once the application is complete, you will receive a confirmation number that will allow you to track your progress simply by logging into the system. A status of “In Progress” means your application is currently under review.
The time it takes to fill a position varies with each opening. It all depends on the quantity of applicants to review, the availability for interviews, and the hiring manager’s urgency level.
Depending on the position requirements, your application may be reviewed by Human Resources (HR) and possibly the hiring manager. If we are interested in moving forward, HR will contact you for additional information or to schedule an interview. Finalists work directly with HR to discuss the offer and complete the pre-employment process including a background check.
If you accept our offer of employment, we will partner with you to schedule the on-boarding process.
Once a position is filled, all applicants who completed the application process will receive notification via an automatically generated e-mail.
