What is the hiring process?


Step 1: All of our available opportunities are posted on our website under Career Openings.

Step 2: Complete and submit your application.

Step 3: We will review your application and if we find you to be a qualified candidate, a PAWS representative will contact you to schedule an interview. The most qualified applicants will be sent to the department manager for further consideration. A complete background check will be performed on the final candidates only.

Step 4: If the interview results in an employment offer, we will present the details of the offer.

Due to the volume of applications we receive, we are unable to personally contact every applicant. If you are not selected for an interview, you are welcome to reapply for future positions.

What does “open until filled” mean?

If the deadline for a career posting reads “open until filled”, it means applications are being accepted until the position is filled and the posting may close without notice. If you are interested in the position, we recommend applying as soon as possible. If you apply after the initial posted date and the position is not yet filled, there is no guarantee that your application will be reviewed.

Does PAWS accept paper applications?

In an effort to streamline our applicant tracking process for efficiency, we require all applications and relevant attachments to be submitted online. If you do not have computer access or if you need assistance completing an application, you can visit your local library or PAWS National Headquarters where we would be happy to assist you in completing your application online.

Can I apply for more than one job?


Yes, but you must submit a separate application for each position you are interested in.

Can I attach my resume, cover letter and supporting documentation to my application?

Yes, you can upload these documents as PDF's.

Do I have to fill out all portions of the application if I attach my resume? 


Yes, you need to complete the entire application for full consideration, even if you attach your resume.

Will you consider my application for other openings at PAWS?


No, you will only be considered for the position(s) for which you submit an application(s). To be considered for additional openings, you need to submit a separate application for each position.

Can I change or revise information on an application I already submitted?

Unfortunately, once the application has been submitted, it has already been sent through the appropriate channels. Please take extra time to review your information to assure accuracy before submitting.

How do I know PAWS received my application?


Once you submit your application, you will receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive this email within a few hours, check your spam or junk folder since some email accounts filter generated emails out of your inbox.

How long after I apply might I be called for an interview?


The time varies from 3-6 weeks. PAWS will contact you directly if you are selected for an interview.

How do I check on the status of a position?


If a job is no longer listed, we have filled the position; however, we invite you to check back for future openings.

Can I apply 24/7?


PAWS’ application system is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Scheduled downtimes for maintenance will be posted online.

Who can I contact for questions not answered here?


Please call PAWS Human Resources at 616-877-7297.
