The application is forwarded to the Human Resources Department. The Human Resources Department reviews all applications received and then forwards the qualified resumes to the appropriate manager for further screening. After the manager identifies the applicants to be interviewed, the selected candidates will be contacted to arrange interview appointments. Once a selection is made, all interviewed candidates will be notified of the decision. We only contact the persons we are interviewing.
