Your Candidate Journey Begins when you submit your application. Ensure that your resume reflects your work experience, skills, and abilities to align with the job you want and that your contact information is current. First-time users will need to create an account. You can then use this profile to log in again, make updates, refresh your resume, or apply for additional jobs.

If you are not ready to apply for a specific position, join our Talent Community to get personalized news and updates related to your area of interest.

Recruiters Review Applications. You will receive an automated response that your application was successfully submitted.

Recruiters evaluate your qualifications against the position requirements.  If there is alignment, a recruiter will contact you to coordinate a phone screen.

Embrace the Journey. A recruiter will ask you a series of questions based on your skills and professional background.  This is your opportunity to develop a relationship with us and let us get to know you.   After the phone screen, if your skills align with our needs, a recruiter coordinator will be in touch with you to schedule an interview and continue to guide you through the next steps. The type of interview will vary based on the position requirements.  Each job is different so the recruiting team will discuss what to expect next.

Meet the Team. Your interview will assess your skills, experience, and motivation to evaluate the best alignment for our needs.  We also want to determine alignment to our company culture at Zeiders. Be your best self and show us your passion for the position. We understand that you are learning about us as much as we are learning about you and want this to be a positive experience. This may be a video interview, an onsite interview, or both, depending on the position. Be prepared to talk with multiple interviewers. If you have more specific questions about the job, you can also discuss them with your hiring manager.  Based on the results of the position interviews, a hiring manager selects an applicant to move forward.

Background Check Graphic

All Zeiders positions require a background investigation. Your recruiting coordinator will initiate the background check and any other required screening or checks based on the position. The quicker you respond and provide the required information, the sooner we can move to the next step. Some of these screenings are performed by third parties.

Applicants who accept a contingent offer of employment must satisfactorily meet all requirements of the comprehensive background check as required for that position.

Offer Graphic

Join Us. Following successful completion of your background investigation and other required checks, a hiring manager will provide a contingent verbal offer and continues to be open to discuss any questions.

Once you accept, you will receive a formal written offer for signature. Upon signing, your hiring manager will welcome you to the team and initiate the onboarding process.

Onboarding Graphic

Welcome to Zeiders. Your onboarding process includes the initial outreach from Human Resources with first day preparation details.  Human Resources kicks off things in a methodical sequence to orient you to the company, your department and the position.

You will learn about our history and our guiding principles, connect with other support departments to equip you for your position, and ensure you have all the resources you need for success.
