The Hiring Process: A Few Things To Know
- Adventist HealthCare will conduct a criminal background check on all prospective employees.
- All new hires will undergo pre-employment drug testing and a physical examination. The physical normally takes a couple of hours to complete, however, depending on the number of other new employees receiving their physical and the availability of medical personnel it may take longer. Please bring the following items when you come for your physical:
- Proof of Authorization to work in the U.S. as defined on form I-9
- Immunization Records or proof of immunity to MMR and Hepatitis B
- List of Current Medications you are taking
New Employee Orientation
All new employees are required to attend an Orientation training session within the first 30 days of employment. The recruiter in HR will schedule this for you when you are offered the job.
