FAQs: Pre-Employment Physical

Does MRWMD require a physical before I begin work?

Yes. All offers of employment are contingent upon the candidate meeting the medical standards of the position. A post-offer, pre-employment physical examination is required, which includes drug/alcohol testing. Candidates who refuse to submit to testing will be disqualified from the hiring process.

FAQs: Background Check

Is a background check done before I can be hired?

Yes. All offers of employment are contingent upon the candidate passing a background check. The extensiveness of the background check will depend on the position and area of assignment.

FAQs: Veteran’s Preference

Does the MRWMD offer Veteran’s Preference?

You should submit a copy your Member-4 Form DD-214, indicating dates of service, and a copy of your letter of disability (if applicable) to the Human Resources Department, either in person, or by mail. For privacy reasons, it is recommended that you remove your social security information from the Veterans documents. A Human Resource Representative will review the materials and determine if you qualify for Veteran’s preference. If taking a special test, (online, written exam or other), inform the recruiter of your veteran status.
