How does Virginia Garcia decide who is hired for a position and how long does it take to hire a new employee?

New applications are reviewed on a near-daily basis by our staffing team. If your application shows that you meet the minimum requirements as described in the job posting, your submission is forwarded to the hiring manager to consider for interviewing.

If you interview and are selected, a member of the staffing team will contact you to begin a pre-employment process, which may include a background check (roughly two business days), credentialing (instant) and professional references (time varies) before discussing a final offer with a start date.

In the event that the position is cancelled or you are not selected, you will receive a notification from the staffing team via the e-mail you entered when you applied.
