Frequently Asked Questions
How can I apply for employment?
A candidate can complete an application in person at the following locations.
If a candidate has a resume, he/she can:
• fax it
• mail it
See the job postings section of the website for continuous and current postings.
Equal consideration is given to all candidates regardless of the manner in which they apply for employment (e.g., application or resume).
How long is my application and/or resume kept on file?
Applications and resumes are kept active for six (6) months.
How should I follow up on the application and/or resume I submitted?
A candidate should send a follow up letter or follow up e-mail to the Human Resources Department (email@example.com). Unfortunately due to the high volume of calls, recruitment staff are not able to talk with candidates following up on applications/resumes. Candidates should not directly contact individual facilities and/or facility supervisors to follow up on applications/resumes.
Will everyone who submits an application and/or resume get interviewed for a job?
No. Only applicants who are selected to go through the interviewing processes (e.g., phone interview, in-person interview, etc.) will receive a phone call or e-mail (or letter if the applicant does not have an e-mail address).
What types of documents should I bring to my first interview?
It is strongly recommended that a candidate bring: three (3) letters of reference, a copy of the highest educational level obtained, and their driver's license (or State Identification Card). If a candidate is interviewing for a position in a federal facility, he/she must also bring in his/her social security card. (For a replacement social security card go to: http://www.ssa.gov/ssnumber/).
If I have a felony or misdemeanor conviction, am I able to work at Oriana House?
Candidates for hire are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Candidates with felony convictions are prohibited from working in certain facilities due to contract restrictions. Candidates with multiple misdemeanor convictions are also prohibited from working in certain facilities due to contract restrictions. The Agency considers the type(s) of convictions a candidate has, how long ago the conviction(s) occurred, positive past work history, and the candidate's suitability for the position for which he/she has interviewed.
