ALERT PROCESSING TIME
We are currently experiencing a staff shortage which has caused delays in application processing. Due to the high volume of applications, each application is placed in a queue in the order it was received. We are processing applications as quickly as possible. We have sent out emails regarding this processing time. If you have not received this email, please check your spam or junk folder in your email account. This email provides information about the eligibility documents that are required as well as directions for uploading these documents to your Hire account.
