If you build your application through our online system, the information you provide will be retained and you can update it any time. Your application and resume/CV should summarize your education, accomplishments, and employment history, plus any other information you think we should know.

  7. Do you check references?

    Yes, we may perform extensive reference and educational qualification checks at any point in the recruitment process.

  8. Does KALCO do background checks?

    Yes, we perform background checks on all new hires before their start date. A typical background check will verify employment and education and may include a criminal record check. For certain positions, we may also perform a credit check.

  9. How will I be evaluated for a job at KALCO?

    We will carefully assess your application, resume/CV, and experience related to the job for which you’re applying. We’ll also consider you for other openings that might match your background and expertise. If you are being considered for a job, a recruiter will contact you for an interview.

  10. What is the KALCO interview process like?

    Our interview process typically begins with a phone screen from one of our recruiters. This is sometimes followed by a conversation with a member of the hiring team (we call this a tech screen). The phone screen tends to focus on your experience and interests, while the tech screen is often more technical or skills-based.
    Following your phone and tech screens, you may be invited for final interviews either at KALCO or at a location near you. During these interviews—which last about 45 minutes each—you’ll typically meet one-on-one with three to six interviewers, who might be peers or managers, over the course of a day. We like to reach a decision on applicants within five businesses days, but your recruiter will let you know more specifically when you can expect to hear the result. The interview process differs slightly for college students since we often conduct on-campus interviews.

  11. Does KALCO hire students, interns, and new graduates?

    Yes, we offer employment programs for students and graduates in many locations.

  12. I applied for a summer internship but I haven’t heard back. What does this mean?

    Generally, we fill our summer internship positions by mid-May. However, we do keep all internship applications on file. So even if you haven’t heard by mid-May, we’ll still have your application in case an opportunity that matches your skills and interests becomes available.
