Each season we receive an abundance of applications to become part of our staff. We review every application and resume and we call every reference for candidates under strong consideration.

In November we begin holding personal interviews so we truly can make the best choices. These are the options for meeting:
1) You visit our administrative office in Northport, Long Island, NY
2) We travel to a central location where we can meet with other applicants as well
3) A senior member of our staff interviews you at a location near you and we will follow up with a phone interview
4) We use a Skype Video connection
We hire staff members all the way through the spring. Mike Liese, our Founder and Director, will be part of the process in all cases. The time frame between the interview and hiring is typically 2-8 weeks, though there are occasional exceptions. We will maintain contact with you throughout the process.
