The recruitment journey

  1. Apply to a posting. Each job family posting hosts many similar individual roles. You only need to submit one application per job family. You may, however, apply for more than one job family if the positions are interesting to you.
  2. Get sorted. All applicants who pass our initial review will receive a sorting quiz to help our talent partners determine which individual roles are right for you. Your application will then be sent to our hiring leaders for their review and shortlisting.
  3. Video prescreen. All shortlisted candidates will be asked to complete a brief video pre-screen via HireVue™.
  4. Final interview. All candidates shortlisted from the video pre-screen will be asked to undergo a final interview. This interview could be done via video or in person.
  5. Background checks. We require all new hires to successfully pass reference, credit and criminal record checks.
  6. Onboarding. You can expect an orientation with fellow ATB101 students within the first two weeks of starting.
