The Cardel Selection Process

Have you ever wondered if your résumé falls into a black hole once you hit the send button on your computer? Maybe it does at some companies but not at Cardel. Here’s what’s going on behind the scenes.

When you submit your resume by email you’ll receive an auto-reply confirming that your email has been received. You can then re-visit our Careers Page to get updates on the status of the position, but please note it may take up to 2 weeks before an update is posted. During this time, HR is reviewing and screening the résumés submitted and creating a short-list to send to the hiring manager. The hiring manager reviews the short-list of candidates and selects the ones that will move on to an interview. If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted by HR and, depending on the position, will either be scheduled for a preliminary phone interview or an in-person interview. In-person interviews are with HR, the hiring manager, or both. A second interview may also take place with the hiring manager and 1 or 2 other team members. The short-listed candidate following the interview process will be notified and presented with an offer while reference checks are being finalized. Candidates who are interviewed but not short-listed will be contacted by phone or email.

We realize the time and effort it takes to conduct a job search and hope this information makes it a little bit easier.
