Finalists will be contacted to arrange an interview. Information obtained through the written application materials and interviews with staff and current trainees will be used to determine the final selections. In addition, all offers of employment are contingent upon a receipt of a satisfactory background check. Applicants should be aware that background checks may uncover records that applicants assume have been sealed or expunged, which can impact employment eligibility.
