Should I call to check up on my application or to speak with the hiring manager?
If your skills match the job we are recruiting for, then we’ll call you.

How long do you keep applications?
We keep applications “active” and on file for 3 months and review them first when jobs become available. If after 3 months you wish to have your application reactivated, please let us know. After a year, if you’d like to be considered for a job, please do re-apply. If you wish to update your application (new address, new phone number, new available hours, etc.), please let us know.
