What are the steps or phases to the hiring process for DART?

DART has a standard hiring process that requires several steps to ensure that we are selecting the best candidates for the designated role. For the most part, the hiring process are as follows:

  1. Online Application: All applicants apply online for the employment opportunity. The applicant will then receive communication from the DART system thanking the candidate for applying and indicating that the application was received. The application is then reviewed by the HR specialists who make sure the candidate meets the minimum qualifications. 
  2. Selection: From there, the HR specialist will share the qualified applicants with the Hiring Official for review and selection. The specialist will coordinate interviews with the candidate(s) and conduct the interviews with the appropriate team. The candidates will then be ranked based on the interviews and the most qualified candidate(s) will be selected. The HR specialist will then prepare a conditional offer.
  3. Background Checks: Pending the results of a medical physical, drug screening, background check, and verification of education and experience. 
  4. Offer and Onboarding: After everything has been validated, our HR specialist will extend the final offer. If the candidate accepts, DART will begin the onboarding process and schedule the applicant for New Hire Orientation.
