What is the hiring process like?
The hiring process is the same as that we use for a permanent hire. Applicants for internships will go through a phone screen and interview process. For applicants who are not local, the process will be conducted by phone/Skype. Applicants that receive an offer for an internship will go through a background and health screen process. This includes a standard criminal, education, references and any employment verifications along with a drug test/health screen.
