APPLICATION INTERVIEW PROCESS
Interested parties may complete an application at any time online OR on site at an Open Interview Session. Applicants are interviewed in the order that they arrive. Interviews last 15-20 minutes. Arriving first to Open Interviews will not increase your chance of being hired. All applicants have an equal opportunity to be hired.
The most convenient area to park for Open Interviews is in the Scarlet Lots adjacent to the Schottenstein Center on the north side. Free parking is available in these lots during Open interviews. Enter the Schottenstein Center through the Northwest Rotunda - facing Bill Davis Stadium (baseball) near the corner of Borror Drive and Fred Taylor Drive.
Following Open Interviews, applicants will be notified via email whether they are being offered a position or declined. Employment is conditional pending a criminal background check and attendance at a mandatory New Hire Orientation training.
