Applicant Physical Testing Assessment
Applicants who wish to tryout the row test that is required for our hiring process can come in and perform an assessment. To do so, call or contact the Recruiting Unit via email with your name, phone number and when you would like to come in. We do assessments Monday - Friday from 8am - 3pm. Applicants should bring workout clothing with them and be prepared to spend roughly 15-20 minutes at our office.
