When will I be contacted after I apply online?
You will receive an automatic e-mail confirmation after you submit your application. This may be the only correspondence you receive about your status. Due to the volume of applications we receive, we are only able to contact candidates whose background best match the requirements for the position. Please be sure to read the requirements listed for each position prior to applying.
I submitted my application but haven’t been contacted. What should I do?
You can revisit our website to see if the position you applied for is still available. No follow-up is necessary as every application received is reviewed and acknowledged with an email of receipt from the Human Resources employment team. Submitting your application more then once for the same position will NOT increase your chances of being contacted. If position is no longer listed, please review other opportunities for an appropriate match.
How soon should I expect to hear from someone regarding my application?
Due to the high volume of applications received, you will be contacted only if further consideration is being given.
How long are job postings generally on the website? Are they posted for a specific amount of time or until the job is filled?
A position will generally remain on our website until it is filled. Our hospital culture is to promote or hire from within. Very often, positions are filled by current colleagues and therefore external candidates may not always be considered for every position.
What are the steps in the hiring process?
If we determine you meet the requirements for the position and it is an appropriate match, a member of our Human Resources employment team will contact you to discuss further your interest, background, skills and experience. After further discussion and if it appears that the position may still be a good match for you, an interview with Human Resources and or the Hiring Manager may be scheduled. Formal interviews may include a one-on-one interview with hiring manager and a peer (group) interview.
South Shore Hospital encourages peer interviews as part of our recruitment process.
Team member participation in peer interviews is one way to promote our Culture of Service Excellence. The peer interview process is also an effective way to make hiring decisions. The more people you meet and talk with at South Shore Hospital, the better informed candidate you are! After meeting our colleagues, leaders and experiencing our Culture of Service Excellence, you will understand why South Shore Hospital colleagues are so proud of our hospital and the work we do. It is our hope that you will be invigorated by our spirit and enthusiastic to join our talented team of healthcare professionals.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
