Frequently Asked Questions by Applicants
- Am I required to apply on-line in order to be considered for a position?
Yes, all applicants must apply on-line to be considered for a position. If you do not have access to the internet, feel free to call 877-921-2345 and we can arrange a time for you to come in and use an on-site computer to complete the application process.
- I created a profile on-line for the application process, but did not apply to a specific position, is this why I have not heard back from a recruiter?
Correct, if you do not choose at least one specific open job requisition, a recruiter will not be aware of your application; therefore, you will not hear back.
- Can I apply to more than one job posting?
You can apply to more than one job posting within Centura. Please only apply to those positions you are qualified for (please review each job description and corresponding requirements). When speaking with a representative from Centura, please be open about your application and interviewing process for each position you have applied to. We want the position you are best suited for!
- I applied on-line for a specific job, when can I expect to hear back from a recruiter?
If you have applied to a position you are qualified for, a recruiter/or hiring manager will review your resume/experience and will be in touch within 48 hours of receipt of your application. If you do not qualify for the position, you can expect to receive an e-mail from our recruiters. In some cases, the number of applicants for a given position can be so high that we can't reach out to every applicant and response times may vary.
