Employment FAQs

Is there a closing date for applications or posted positions?

We accept applications for all posted positions. We keep positions open until they are filled, unless otherwise specified in the job description.

Are all the posted positions still open?

Yes, even if a position has been open for a while. Some positions take longer to fill than others.

How are candidates notified when a position is filled?

We will contact all candidates by e-mail when a position is filled. Please make sure you provide a current e-mail address and update your online application.

How do I find out the salary range for a position?

We discuss salary during the interview process. Therefore, it’s important for you to include your minimum salary requirement when applying. Even if it is higher than the range, you will not automatically be disqualified from being considered.

What are the work hours for positions?

The work hours are generally 8-4:30 Monday-Friday. Some evening and weekend work may be required on an occasional basis. Positions in Public Safety, Grounds, and Maintenance may regularly require evening or weekend work. The job descriptions will specify when this is the case.

When do benefits begin?

For full-time and part-time positions of 20 hours or more, benefits begin the first day of the month following the first day of employment. Details are available on our Benefit Pages.

If I previously worked for or applied to PLNU, do I need to fill out another application?

The first step in the process is to create an online application and submit it to an open position.

How long do you keep applications on file?

Applications are kept for at least one year as required by law.

Do you accept resumes or applications for positions that aren't posted?

We do not accept applications or resumes for positions that are not currently posted.

How do I get more information about a position?

The first step is to complete an application and submit it to the position. Even if you have additional questions or aren’t sure about the salary, still apply. If we contact you, then you’ll have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
