FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What happens when I submit a job application/resume?
All of the application forms/resumes we receive are carefully screened and reviewed in order to determine whether each applicant is qualified for the position(s) they are seeking to obtain. If an applicant is qualified, they will be contacted by a member of our HR department in order to set up a screening interview. If an applicant does not meet our qualification requirements or they are seeking to fill a position which is not currently vacant, then we will keep that application on file for up to six months. During this six month time period, an applicant may be contacted at any time in which a suitable position becomes available.
Candidates must be at least 14 years of age in order to be considered for any of our current job postings (this number may be higher depending on the job position). Candidates who are 13 years of age and will soon be turning 14 may submit an application/resume, however they will only be considered once they have reached the legally required age.
What kinds of hours would I be expected to work at HOCO?
