I understand that Penobscot Valley Hospital is dedicated to providing superior medical services with equal care and compassion shown to all, and requires that its employees share this commitment. I realize that every job at PVH contributes to achieving this objective. I understand that the minimum requirements for employment include but are not limited to: minimum age 18, high school diploma or GED, evidence of functional literacy, degree or license or certification for certain jobs, evidence of qualities that help PVH meet public expectations for customer service, and the ability to do the essential elements of the job. I understand that this application will remain active for six months from the date submitted. After that time, if I still want to be considered for employment, I must submit a new application. I understand that I may not receive a reply to this application and that an interview does not constitute an offer of employment unless an authorized manager at PVH makes such an offer directly. I certify that all of the statements contained in this application and any accompanying documents are true and complete. I understand that any offer of employment is conditioned on a background check. I hereby authorize Penobscot Valley Hospital to investigate all statements contained in my application and accompanying documents, and to contact employers, schools, and individuals named herein (except my current employer, if so noted). I release those contacted from all liability for damage in providing or declining to provide information. I understand that any false statements, omissions, or misrepresentations by me will constitute sufficient cause and reason either for PVH’s refusal to hire or decision to terminate employment. I understand and agree that, unless otherwise expressly agreed to in writing signed by an administrative official of PVH, if employed by the PVH in a non-union position, my employment will be at will and without fixed term, and that either of us may terminate the employment at any time with or without prior notice or cause. I also understand that this at-will employment relationship may not be altered or amended, except with regard to changes in compensation or representation. If I am employed in a position subject to collective bargaining, my employment will be governed by the terms of a collective bargaining agreement once I become eligible for bargaining unit membership. If extended an offer of employment, I consent to undergo a pre-placement physical examination by a health professional selected by PVH, which may include blood and urine testing. I understand that any offer of employment is conditioned upon the results of this post-offer examination. I also understand that PVH has a policy restricting employment of those who are relatives of current employees and that any job offer arising out of this application is subject to that policy. I am aware that Penobscot Valley Hospital, a Critical Access Hospital located in Lincoln, Maine, is an equal opportunity employer. As such, except where required by state or federal law, PVH does not discriminate in hiring, promotion, retention, or termination on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, disability real or perceived, sexual orientation, genetic predisposition, or veteran status.
