If the position requires a degree greater than high school, you will need a resume and your unofficial transcripts (not a copy of your diploma). Your application will be disqualified without these documents. A cover letter is optional.

If the position does not require a degree, a prepared resume and cover letter are optional. You will be able to fill in your employment and education history within the application.

Note: It is a Class A Misdemeanor to misrepresent academic credentials, pursuant to Tenn. Code Ann. § 49-7-133.

Our positions are posted for either 14 or 30 days, with the exception of pool postings. The deadline for each position is listed in the job ad. You must complete and submit your application before that date and time to be considered.

The pay rate or range for each position is listed in the job ad. If it is a range, it is based on the requirements for the position and your education and experience.

You can learn more about our benefits on this page.

No. We ask questions specific to each position in the application, so no two applications are the same.

We do not contact candidates who are not selected to interview, but you will receive an automated email when the position has closed. If you are selected to interview, you will usually hear from the hiring manager to schedule an interview in the few weeks after the posting deadline. If you interview but are not selected, you will hear from the hiring manager soon after your interview.


If you have questions about any part of the hiring process, please email or call Emma McMullen at 423-354-5183. We can also help with applications and have a computer available if you do not have access to one to apply.
