Employment FAQ

How do I apply?

Click the link to view current job postings. You will select a category (professional, nursing, allied health, information systems, support services or administrative/clerical) and click on "Search". You can then apply by clicking on the job title.

Do I have to have an email address to apply?

CarolinaEast does not require that you have an active email account to apply, however this cannot be left blank on the application. Please put "" in this field.

Will my application save if I don't complete it?

You will have the option to click "save" on the right side of the application page. We encourage you to save as you go so your information is not lost. Do this before you exit and it will allow you to enter your username and password and finish the application when you're ready to do so. The application will not be submitted for consideration until it is complete.

What if I want to apply to more than one position or another position at a later date?

By registering as a user in our application system, you can easily return to the system and enter your username and password to access your most recent application. This will allow you to apply for multiple positions or for a position at a later date. You will also be able to make changes, if needed, and resubmit the application for a new position.

Can I mail or fax a resume?

Some candidates opt to bring a formal copy of their resume with them to the interview. Because of the volume of applications, it is difficult to match up faxed or mailed resumes to online applications. We do not accept paper applications; however, we are happy to assist you on one of our computers in the human resources lobby if you need help.

What is the process once my application has been submitted?

You should immediately receive a pop-up message stating that the application has been submitted. Also, if you have an active email account, you will receive an email notification to the same effect. The recruiter responsible for the position will review the application. If you meet all of the minimum requirements, the application will be forwarded to the hiring manager or director. If an interview is requested, the recruiter will be in contact with you to schedule. Because of the volume of applications received, we cannot contact everyone regarding the status of the application. If you've received the notifications that your application has been received, please know you are being considered.

How long will my application stay on file?

Your online application is retained indefinitely; however, we do require an individual application for each position. Your username and password make it possible to pull up your old information, make changes and updates if necessary and resubmit to the new position.

How will I know the status of a position?

CarolinaEast Health System receives a high volume of applications daily. We're so glad you have an interest in employment with us, but due to the volume of applications we are unable to contact each applicant individually. You will receive fair consideration for the position, and if you are selected for an interview you will be contacted via phone or email to schedule an appointment.

Is there a closing date for the positions?

The positions are kept open until filled and do not have specific closing dates. If they are still posted on the website, then they are still open. There may be times when the position is pending being filled, and as soon as the hiring process is complete, it will be removed from the website.

What if I can't remember my username or password?

Contact Human Resources and the HR Assistant or a Recruiter will be happy to assist you.

Can I submit a general application in case something comes available?

We do not have a link to a general application. The website has all of our current openings. If you do not see something that you qualify for, then we ask that you use the job agent tool on the Careers page. This tool allows you to choose a job title or titles and enter your email address. If job posts  that correlates with the title or titles you've chosen, then an email will be generated to you letting you know. This makes sure you never miss an opportunity!

Why was I not selected for an interview for a position?

CarolinaEast Health System receives a high volume of applications, often making it very competitive. We choose the candidates who most closely match minimum requirements of the job. After the interview process, the manager determines the candidate that is the best fit for the department.
