HOW TO APPLY:
A fully completed official online RTAA Employment Application must be completed through an online process. For more information about this opportunity and to apply, visit: www.governmentjobs.com/careers/renoairport.
The RTAA Employment Application is the primary screening tool to determine an applicant's qualifications. A resume may be submitted in addition to, but not in lieu of, completing the RTAA Employment Application. While you may submit a resume, it is supplemental and will not be used to determine whether or not you have met the minimum qualifications. All work experience, education, training, and other information substantiating how you meet the minimum qualifications must be included on your RTAA Employment Application.
We strongly encourage applicants to review our online application instructions, available at the top of the RTAA Career webpage, before submitting the application to help ensure it has been completed in a manner consistent with our requirements as failure to complete the application as required will result in your application being disqualified from further consideration. Below is a summary of our requirements:
• Completed all sections on the RTAA Employment Application.
• Provided detailed information to address how you meet and/or exceed minimum qualifications for the position.
• Provided a minimum of five (5) years of employment history.
• Explained any gaps in employment of six (6) months or more within the "Work History" section. To explain gaps, add a new employer, write what was occurring under the "Name of Employer" (e.g., unemployed, student, etc.), and list dates. Please note, a statement in the "Reason for Leaving Section" is not sufficient to address gaps in employment.
• If you had more than one (1) position with the same employer, list each position, and the time you were in that position, separately.
Questions about the job should be addressed to Brent Finster, Airport Communications Manager at email@example.com.
Questions about the application, recruitment, and/or selection process, the physical demands of the position, or requests for a reasonable accommodation, should be addressed to the RTAA Human Resources Office at (775) 328-6450 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Review of Application: After submission, the application will be reviewed to determine if it is complete and if minimum qualifications are met. For those applicants found to meet minimum qualifications, the next step of the process will be an application evaluation. It is essential that applications include detailed information regarding education and experience to enable evaluation of the application.
Selection Process: Based on the application evaluation process, only the most qualified applicants will be invited to test. The RTAA will communicate the testing process with selected applicants via email, so it is critical that applicants ensure their email address is accurate on the application and the email is one that the applicant checks regularly.
Testing Process: The testing and selection process may include examinations (computer aided or written) to demonstrate job-related knowledge and skills, practical exercises to demonstrate the ability to perform job-related tasks and manipulative skills, employment interviews (oral or written), or any combination thereof. Applicants must successfully pass all parts of the testing process to be considered for hire.
Pre-Employment Requirements: The RTAA requires each candidate to successfully complete employment history verification and background check prior to being considered for employment. All employment offers are subject to successful completion/passing of a drug-screening test, a fingerprint criminal history records check, and an Airport Security Badging test.
