Pre-employment background checks are a standard part of our application process. We run a background check for criminal history. We also verify employment history, secondary education, professional registration and licensure. In addition, we obtain reports that provide clearance from the Office of Inspector General, List of Excluded Individuals/Entities, Texas Medicare List of Excluded Providers, General Services Administration List of Excluded Providers and U.S. Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control.

6. How do you determine if someone meets the minimum qualifications for a clerical job?

A series of timed pre-employment skills tests are administered at desktop workstations in our Employment Lobby. Tests include Customer Service, Filing, Telephone Practices, Typing, Spelling, Math, and Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access. The results of the tests combined with preliminary interviews conducted by our recruiters will determine whether an applicant meets the minimum requirements for our clerical positions.
