Applicant's Statement

I certify that answers given herein are true and complete to the best of my knowledge.

I authorize and consent to the use of multiple ways to investigate all statements contained in this application for employment as may be necessary in arriving at an employment decision including the internet. I understand that this application is not intended to be a contract of employment. Further, I understand and agree that if employed by Pacific Press®, my employment is at will for no definite period and may, regardless of the day of payment of my wages and salary, be terminated at any time without any previous notice.

In the event of employment, I understand that false or misleading information given in my application or interview(s) may result in discharge. I understand, also, that I am required to abide by all rules and regulations of Pacific Press® Publishing Association.

Subsequent to an offer of employment, all individuals who will be assigned the duties that require lifting or other strenuous physical activity may be subject to medical clearance for fitness to do the work assigned prior to commencement of employment.

By signing below, I certify that this Employment Application was completed by me and that all entries and information on this application and any exhibits, resumes, and other materials provided to PPPA are true, correct and complete.

I understand that all information I have provided is subject to verification. I further understand that false, misleading, incomplete or omitted information on this application, any exhibits, resumes and other materials, in interviews or otherwise in the application process will result in rejection of my application or termination, if hired, regardless of the date of discovery.

By signing this application, I authorize all persons and organizations, including but not limited to my former and present employers and personal references, to provide PPPA and its agents with complete information they may have concerning my character, employment record and suitability for employment with PPPA, including information contained in any personnel file.

I understand that information provided by them may be used by PPPA in consideration of my application. If PPPA conducts a consumer report/background check about me under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, I will receive a separate notice and authorization for that report. I acknowledge that this application is not an offer of employment or a contract with PPPA. I understand that employment with PPPA is ?at will? and based on mutual consent. Either PPPA or I can cease any employment relationship at any time with or without prior notice or requirement of cause. I understand that no employee of PPPA, other than PPPA Human Resources, is authorized to enter into any contract or create any employment relationship other than ?at will.?

I acknowledge that neither any verbal nor written communication made to me during the application and/or interview process or during employment, nor any provision of the employee handbook constitutes any implied employment agreement.

I understand that if I am hired by PPPA, I will be required to complete a Federal I-9 Form and provide documentation verifying my right to live and work in the United States.

Any conditional employment offer by PPPA is subject to my successful completion of all employment prerequisites, including but not limited to verifying employment references and licenses/certification/credential (where applicable) and a criminal background check.

If hired by PPPA, I will comply with all policies, rules, codes, and procedures that may apply to my position and employment.

Prospective employee applications will be kept on file in the Pacific Press® Publishing Association Offices for a period of one year from date of application.
