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: We're 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 their current information for us. That'll give you a chance to check with that person and let them know you plan on using them 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 via phone or Zoom (video conference). 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, 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: If you want more information about pre-camp work, contact camp. Pre-camp is for veteran staff only.
