Advice to Applicants
Thank you for your interest in working at the Foss Park District. We think you will find our approach to hospitality to be different from other operations in the market, and we think this can be our secret to success. We believe the way to achieve the kind of business environment we want is to create a trusting relationship with our staff. In this atmosphere, both staff and company can work out difficulties and make decisions together.
We are not just another service company, and we are not looking for just another applicant. This letter will give you some ideas of what to expect and how to proceed from here.
1. All applicants must begin with the Employment Inquiry. Take this inquiry; give it some thought and take your time with it. Be sure to fill it out completely.2. Position Sought: Please write down the position being sought so that the appropriate Department will get the Employment Inquiry. We do not have an “OPEN” or “ANY” position available.3. When you have completed the Employment Inquiry, it must be returned to the Business Department, in turn it will be passed on to the appropriate Department Head for consideration. You will be contacted by the Department for which you are applying to move ahead with the application process.4. We will verify all information given to us on the application. Any false or misleading statements willdisqualify you from consideration, no matter how talented you may be.5. We are committed to maintaining a drug-free workplace. This means we do not tolerate the possession of drugs or alcohol, nor do we permit our staff to work under the influence of drugs or alcohol.6. We will verify all of your references.
