This application will be considered active for a period of ninety (90) days and thereafter retired to an inactive file. You may renew this application by filing a new form. We appreciate the time you spend in filling in this application form. All applicants should read the following notices very carefully. If you do not understand anything stated below, please ask the Human Resources Administrator for an explanation. By submitting your application, you will be deemed to have understood and agreed to the following:
All questions must be answered truthfully: This application form is intended for use in evaluating your qualifications for employment. You are required to give accurate and complete responses to the questions. Regardless of whether made in filling out this application or at any time in the hiring process, any false, misleading or incomplete statements or responses are grounds for rejection of your application or, if discovered after you have been hired, grounds for your immediate termination.
Equal Employment Opportunity: Big Country Electric Cooperative (BCEC), in accordance with State and Federal laws, does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, religion, color, gender, national origin, physical or mental handicap or veteran’s status, disability, except where a reasonable, bona fide occupation qualification exists. The Cooperative also is required by law, by virtue of its contract(s) with the federal government, to take affirmative action to employ women, minorities, otherwise qualified handicapped individuals and Vietnam era and disabled veterans. Offers of employment are conditioned on the applicant passing a pre-employment medical examination to determine if the applicant can perform the essential functions of their job, with or without reasonable accommodation.
At-will status of all employees: This application form is not an employment contract, and neither is any other document you may be given in the hiring process or later, if you are hired. If you are hired, your employment at all times will be employment at-will, which means that either you or BCEC has the right to terminate your employment at any time, with or without cause, and with or without notice.
Nothing in this application, or in any prior or subsequent oral or written statements, is intended to create a contract for employment for any specified period. No one other than the General Manager has any authority to enter into any agreement contrary to the forgoing and such would have to be in writing signed by the General Manager.
Drug testing: Big Country Electric Cooperative’s policy requires testing for the presence of drugs and alcohol in your body prior to employment. Any applicant will be required to pass a pre-employment drug screen, and if hired, you will be subject to BCEC’s drug and alcohol testing policy during employment. This policy provides that drug and alcohol testing may be done for reasonable cause, suspicion, on a random basis, after any accident, or as determined by BCEC. As a condition of being considered for employment, you hereby agree and consent to be tested for drugs and alcohol. By accepting any offer of employment, you agree and consent to be tested for drugs and alcohol during your employment pursuant to BCEC’s policy as a condition of employment.
