Pre-Qualifying Questions: Entry Level 1

The following questions can be used to help qualify job seekers. These questions can be used to identify unqualified job seekers and remove them from the process, or they can be used to gather information about each individual that will be used later, when rating and ranking the available job seekers (Please refer to the staffing process flow chart for details.)

Building Your Customized Pre-qualifying Questionnaire - Choose the questions on the next pages that are appropriate for the position you wish to fill, by marking an "X" in the check box to the left of the question. If you would like to disqualify job seekers who answer a question a certain way, check the box next to the answer on which you wish to disqualify. If a box is not provided next to the answer, you are unable to disqualify job seekers for that answer.

When job seekers are disqualified on the basis of an answer to a specific item, they will receive the following message:

Disqualifying Message: It appears that you do not meet one of the requirements for this position. If you have a question about this, please contact a support representative at [your assigned toll free support number]

*** Disqualified job seekers are not able to go through the HR Prequalify process again without first contacting a customer service representative.
