What positions are available and how do I apply?

Visit the job search page, choose the appropriate criteria, and click Search. The next page will display your results. You can click on a job title to view the job details or check the boxes next to the job titles and select View Selected Jobs if you wish to view more than one opening.

Be sure to use the same name and SSN on your Profile as you will be using on the application. You will receive a confirmation email from the system letting you know that the application was received.

Why is my Social Security Number required for creating an account?

The last 4 digits of your SSN are required to ensure security of your application data. This 4 digit number as well as your first and last name match to your application, allowing you to copy your most recent application, check the status of your applications, and allows Human Resources to see a complete history of your submitted applications. Applicants can be assured that security is an on-going effort, and we take it very seriously. We follow industry standard practices to ensure that the data we are responsible to safeguard is protected.

What do I do if I don't have an email address?

An e-mail address is required to complete the Applicant Profile unless otherwise noted below the email address field. If you do not have an e-mail address, there are several providers available that offer free e-mail accounts including Hotmail, Yahoo, and Google.

I can't access the online application. What could be going wrong?

The application opens in a new window and is therefore treated by some systems as a "pop-up." After disabling the pop-up blocker on your computer, you should be able to access the application. You may re-enable the pop-up blocker after the application has been completed and successfully sent.

How do I apply for more than one position?

Once an online application has been completed for a specific position, an applicant may select another position and log back in with the username and password created. Applicants will be able to copy their most recent application information to apply to a new position.

I'm filling out the application, but don't have all the information it asks for. What do I do?

You can save your information by clicking on Save Now in the Save Your Work Often button that scrolls down the right side of the application before you cancel out of the application. Once you have the missing information, you may log back in with your user name and password to complete the application.

How do I complete an application that I saved when it was only partially completed?

Go to any job and go in like you are going to apply for the job. Once you click the apply link, you will receive a message to click here to complete a partial application, or click the other link to delete the partial application.

I filled out everything on the application, but I keep getting an error message. Why?

If you receive an error message, it may be that you are missing required information. A message will indicate which fields are missing so you may complete the information and submit the application. However, if the error does not indicate missing information, please use the Send Error to Support link to send a detailed email explaining the issue you are having and someone will contact you. Frequently use the Save Your Work Often button that scrolls down the right hand of the application to help prevent losing any data should an error occur.

How do I know if my online application went through?

Once you've submitted the application, you will receive an email notification thanking you for applying.

How long will it take to be hired?

There is not a precise answer to this question. The recruitment staff at CoxHealth processes a large volume of applications each day. Not everyone who applies will receive a job offer. We strive to hire only the best and most highly-qualified candidates for each of our openings.

How do I check the status of my application?

Go to the job search page and click on the Log In Now link. It is below the job search criteria. Enter your login information.

Any status changes since the last time you logged in will be highlighted in yellow.

Why can't I use the copy feature when I want to submit an additional application?

The information on your application must identically match your account information. You can modify your account information clicking on Log In Now from the Job Openings page. Once you're logged into your account, click on the My Account tab. Modify your First Name and your Last Name to identically match the information your application. If the Last 4 Digits of SSN do not match you will need to contact the Human Resources office.
