A: Give us a complete view of yourself. Church officials, teachers/professors, employers, Geneva Glen alumni, etc. We also ask that you include one family member who can comment on your ability to work as an employee!
A: I'm willing to bet you have 4 references somewhere. We realize that this might be your first official job, but you've probably had some "employment" elsewhere. Babysitting? How about mowing the neighbor's lawn? Have you taken care of someone's pets, etc? Use teachers or school officials. Are you in any clubs or activities? Have your soccer or baseball coach on that list.
A: If you use a Geneva Glen alum, please get his/her current information for us. That'll give you a chance to check with that person and let them know you plan on using him/her as a reference. Incomplete applications will take longer to process.
A: Depends on when you sent in your application. If you are selected for an interview, you should hear from us within a month of receiving your application. We appreciate your patience and you are always welcome to contact us about the status of your application.
A: Interviews are either done in-person at camp or over the phone. We'll ask you some questions, you answer them. How formal do they get? Don't wear a tuxedo or your prom dress... Seriously though, we appreciate an open interview where you are professional and willing to share some information about yourself.
A: If you haven't heard from us at all (confirmation email / postcard), give us a call or email and make sure that we do have your application. If you did get that email, just be patient - we'll get in touch with you as soon as possible.
A: If you have an important question regarding the timing of being hired, give us a call let us deal with that specifically. If you are just excited and a little impatient, we'll try and get to everyone as quickly as possible.
A: In your end of summer evaluations we asked if you were interested in the next summer... we use that information to "invite" people to join the staff. If you were employed in a previous summer (more than a year ago) contact us or fill out the standard online application.
A: Yes, we need 2 new references from ALL re-applicants. We would like to hear from a reference who knows you since the end of last summer. It's Geneva Glen's responsibility to get up-to-date information on you before we consider re-hiring you. Remember that an "invitation" to complete the re-application does not ensure that you have a job!
We are happy to introduce you to the many kinds of employment opportunities at Geneva Glen. As you read through these staff pages, you will learn of the different kinds of jobs, the pay, dates and a description of each.
