When will you check my references? Who will be contacted?

EvergreenHealth uses Skill Survey to check references. Skill Survey is a web-based system that gives you control of who will be contacted.

If you are selected to complete Skill Survey, you will receive an email from your recruiter and be asked to add a minimum of 5 references (2 current or previous supervisors and 3 co-workers; you will need phone numbers and email addresses).

You will also be able to review a sample of the questions being asked along with the email that will be sent to your references.

Your references will be emailed a reference survey and their responses will be submitted directly to EvergreenHealth. All responses are averaged and made available in one confidential summary report. 


To whom should I address my cover letter?

Please keep it general, as more than one person may review.


How do I add my résumé and cover letter?

Copy the text from your cover letter document and paste into the cover letter field of the application form. Repeat for your résumé. You may also type directly into the cover letter and résumé fields.


Can I make changes to my application after it's been accepted?

No. Once successfully submitted, you will not be able to make changes or additions, nor add your résumé and cover letter.

Please make any changes before you hit "Submit".


How do I know my application was received? How can I check the status of my applications?

You will receive an automated acknowledgement upon completing the online process.

To check existing application status, log in on the Current Job Openings page and select "Application History".


Can I apply for more than one position? How long will you keep my application on file?

You may apply to more than one position.  Your application will be kept on file until the position has been filled.


What happens to my application after I apply? How long does it normally take to be contacted?

A recruiter reviews and forwards qualified applications to the manager.

Each manager has a different timeline for filling positions in their department.

If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted directly.


When do job postings close? How will I be notified when a position has closed?

Job postings close when the position is filled. Please check your application status frequently. Log in on the Current Job Openings page and select "Application History" to get up-to-date application information.


Why did I receive an e-mail message that my application was incomplete?

When applying, please enter all requested information, as thoroughly as possible, and include your cover letter and résumé.

Fill in all employment histories, in detail (the system allows up to four employment histories).


I meet the job requirements; why wasn't I contacted for an interview?

Even highly specialized positions sometimes receive many applications, and some positions are filled from within. Due to high volume, we are not always able to interview every qualified candidate.

We do appreciate the time and effort you took to apply, and hope you will consider us for future opportunities.
