Background Checks

  • A criminal background check is required for all staff and temporary positions.  Whitman College uses Sterling Talent Solutions to conduct the criminal background check.  Turnaround time from ordering to receipt of completed check is generally 2-4 days, but could take longer.  Human Resources will email the applicant who has been offered a position with the release form to authorize a background check. 

Employment Offer

Please contact the Human Resource Office to obtain a salary range prior to a verbal employment offer.  All employment offers are contingent on a criminal background check and a pre-employment physical (if required).
