The recruiter will review your skills, education and experience against the requirements of the position you have applied for, and may consider you for other relevant open opportunities as well. You may receive an e-mail describing the results of that review. Should you not be selected for a specific opportunity, your information will be maintained for future consideration as well.

Q: What can I expect during my interview?
A: Hopefully a great "journey of discovery" that will be a positive experience. One of the reasons for the very low employee turnover at Welch Allyn is the care taken in the selection process to ensure mutual fit for the current role, potential future role(s) and culture. Your are an equal partner and integral part of this process to ensure you are also comfortable with it, and are encouraged to ask as many questions as you feel necessary to ensure we lean as much about each other as possible.
All positions will have at least one round of interviews, normally with the hiring manager, the "one over" manager, the Human Resources Manager, the recruiter, and employees who know the role and expectations. First round interviews will normally take a full day, and may include an orientation tour as well.
Q: How many rounds of interviews will there be?
A: The higher the position level, the interface with other locations, and cross-functional team members, the more rounds of interviews you can expect. It is very common for a second round of interviews to occur with key stakeholders of the position, customers or others with vested interest in your success.
Q: If I am traveling for my interview, will Welch Allyn reimburse me for my expenses?
A: All reasonable travel expenses are covered by Welch Allyn. We utilize a retained travel agency and direct-billing agreement to minimize any out-of-pocket expenses that you might incur.
Q: What happens after my interview is complete?
A: After the interviews, our team will get together for an integration meeting to discuss your candidacy role. Your recruiter will be in touch with you to discuss outcomes and next steps. The next steps often consist of reference checking and background screening. Our background screening process verifies education and licenses, employment history, criminal history, military status and social security trace. Sixty-five percent of the candidates we interview receive offers of employment upon completion of this process.
Q: If I am extended an offer, what happens next?
A: Our recruiters will extend a verbal offer to you, followed by your receipt of a full offer package and benefits summary. All offers are contingent on a physical and drug screening. Information on both of these will be provided in the offer package.
Q: How long does the recruitment process typically take?
A: The length of time for recruitment varies by position. Our thorough hiring process ensures the best overall fit for the current open position as well as the future vision of the company. From the time of the creation of the requisition through the date of acceptance of an offer, eight weeks usually elapse. The average time a candidate is part of that process is approximately three weeks.
Q: Does Welch Allyn employ employment agencies?
A: Contingent agencies do not represent Welch Allyn. Welch Allyn does not use agencies except in very, very rare circumstances (once or twice annually). Any candidate who is being contacted by an agency purporting to represent Welch Allyn should know the agency is not affiliated with Welch Allyn.
Welch Allyn does not partner with vendors who may not represent the company's core values.
If a candidate wishes to be considered or validate the claim of the agency, they should contact Welch Allyn Staffing to confirm whether the agency has been retained by Welch Allyn. If the candidate truly wants to work at Welch Allyn, they should visit the Welch Allyn Careers section of the Web site.
