Information For Job Seekers: Recruitment and Hiring During COVID-19
During these uncertain times, providing a safe, exceptional hiring experience remains a top priority.
Are Providence St. Joseph Health and their family of organizations still hiring?
Yes. We have an urgent need for clinical and non-clinical workers to care for our patients. We are actively recruiting across all regions and locations for temporary, part-time and full-time positions while taking necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our candidates, patients, caregivers and communities.
Are job interviews still happening?
Yes. To minimize risk, we now offer virtual interviews as an alternative to in-person interviews across all of our regions and locations.
Is travel still allowed for out-of-area applicants?
No. However, we are scheduling virtual interviews for all candidates needing to travel. Travel for interviews is not allowed until further notice.
Are new employee/caregiver orientations still happening?
Yes. For the safety of our new and current caregivers, we are launching a virtual New Caregiver Orientation experience effective March 30, 2020. This experience will welcome new caregivers and ensure they have all the required information, including knowledge of our organizations' safety and regulatory procedures. Our Promise is to “Know Me, Care for Me, Ease My Way,” and we are committed to this promise during virtual orientation.
What are you doing to keep your employees/caregivers safe?
We need to keep our caregivers safe, so they can safely care for our patients. Facing a massive national shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) to fight COVID-19, we sought innovative solutions from our teams and communities. Due to initiatives like the 100 Million Mask Challenge, we are pleased to announce that we are moving to the practice of “universal masking.” This means, starting with our hardest-hit communities, we will supply a medical-grade mask to every caregiver who works in a clinical setting at the beginning of each shift. We are committed to universal masking in our most affected communities for as long as feasible.
How are you supporting your employees/caregivers through these difficult and unprecedented times?
We’re listening to our people. We know many of our caregivers and their family members are experiencing stress and anxiety due to the increased burden of COVID-19. We have a range of resources that can support their emotional needs, free of charge. We're also providing added benefits for child care, emergency loans and more. Learn more here.
