Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How do I apply for a job at Plymouth Housing group?
We accept applications through our on-line Careers Page. If you don’t have personal access to a computer, you may locate public computers at public libraries or at Seattle King County WorkSource offices. The downtown WorkSource office is located at 2024 3rd Avenue, 2nd floor, Seattle, WA 98121 and is open 8:30am-5pm.
Can you explain the application process?
On the Employment Listings tab of our career website, click on “Search All Current Openings.” Once there, you will be presented with a listing of the Plymouth departments which currently have job openings. Click on the department with the positions listed below. Select the Department to which you wish to apply. From there, you can review the job listings, and click into any of the jobs for more details about the position. If you would like to apply, click on "New Resume/CV” or “Existing Resume/CV” within the Apply Box at the bottom of the page.
At that point, from the “Existing Resume/CV” option, if you have applied to a job with Plymouth Housing Group previously, you can enter your login and password to use your previously saved information. If you do not remember them, you can use the “Forgot Your Password” link above the login box to request your information via e-mail.
If you do not have a login and password, you can build your profile and complete the application by clicking on the "New Resume/CV” option. The first step will be to create your basic profile and upload a resume. Once that is completed, you will be presented with the Plymouth Application, and then job specific questions. Please be sure to continue this process until you receive a message acknowledging your application's submission to be sure your application will be considered.
How do I update my current profile, cancel my JOB agent or check the status of jobs that I have applied to?
If your personal information changes or you would like to apply for more jobs, you can access your profile by logging in with your login and password from our Careers page.
You can login as a returning candidate by following the steps below:
Click on “Employment Listings” which is located underneath the Plymouth Housing Group logo at the top of the page.
Click on “Update Profile” or “Update Job Agent.”
You can then login as a returning applicant and update your profile, view your past submittals or delete your profile and/or job agent.
My computer crashed when I was applying. Do I need to begin the process again?
If your computer crashes, you will want to login to your profile to check on your status. You should go to our Careers page and login to your profile with the login and password you used when creating your profile. Once you are logged in, click on the "View My Past Submittals" link. If you see the job you applied for, than your application was successful, and we can contact you if we need more information. However, if you do not see the job, you will need to re-apply to that job.
If you get a message saying that your login or password is invalid, then you will also need to re-create your profile.
Can I apply even if there isn't a specific position currently available that is of interest to me?
Unfortunately, we cannot accept unsolicited resumes. Our job openings are updated on a regular basis, so it is essential that you indicate which position you are applying for when submitting your application/resume.
Will you contact me regarding the status of my application?
We regret that we can’t reply personally to each submission. If there's an immediate match between your talents and our needs, we will contact you directly within two to four weeks. If you do not hear from us within that time, please assume that we do not have an appropriate opportunity at this point, but will certainly keep your talents in mind and your qualifications on file for any appropriate openings which may develop in the future.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your interest in employment with Plymouth Housing Group.
Do most new hires come from employee referrals?
Some of our applicants come from employee referrals and the rest apply directly.
What are the most frequently encountered problems and how do I troubleshoot them?
Navigate to the "About Us" tab, then click on the "Application Related Documents" link to the left. There you will find the most frequently encountered problems and how to resolve them.
I still have questions. May I talk to someone?
Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications we receive, we are not able to respond individually to application inquiries. If you have a specific question that isn’t answered above, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not email other people from our Department Contacts page on the main website regarding job inquiries.
