How it works…

Step 1: Each applicant is screened individually starting with the online application. At every point in our screening process,you are being evaluated based on the needs of our current client base. We are always looking for candidates who display a true love for working with children and families, and a positive, can-do attitude.

Step 2: If you meet our minimum requirements, you will be contacted for an initial phone screen.

Step 3: If you successfully meet our phone screen requirements, you will be asked to complete a short – answer questionnaire to describe your experiences, philosophies, and style as a caregiver.  You will also be asked to submit a resume.

Step 4: The next step is an in-person interview followed by a thorough background check.  Our background check includes the following: a minimum of 3 professional references and complete work history verification, a 7 year state-by-state criminal and driving background check, national sex offender registry check, and social security number verification. *Interviews are by appointment only and must be scheduled by calling our office. We are available weekdays, and some evenings and weekends..just ask!

Step 5: Once the above steps have been completed, a decision letter will be e-mailed or mailed to you letting you know whether or not you have been accepted for representation.
