Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the interview process take?
The length of the interview process may vary greatly depending on factors such as the type of position being filled and the number of applicants. We are committed to hiring the best of the best—it's one of the reasons Pelican is such a great place to work—so the interview process can take a bit longer than it does at other companies.

I submitted my application. Now what?
Once you submit your application, a member of our recruiting team will review it to determine whether or not you meet the initial qualifications. If you do meet the qualifications, we will follow up with a phone screening. For more information about this process, click here.

What is the status of my application?
Because of the large number of applicants we receive for each position, it is difficult to provide individual application updates. Pelican works hard to provide updates to you at every step of the way, even if you are not chosen for a position. Updates may come by email and/or phone so it is important you provide accurate contact information and check your email and/or voice messages regularly!

What should I wear to the interview?
You only get one chance to make a great first impression, and how you present yourself at your first interview truly sets the tone! Coming to your interview dressed in “business casual” attire is a pretty safe bet. For ladies this means slacks/skirts and a nice blouse, dresses and closed-toe shoes, and for gentlemen, slacks, a button-up shirt or polo and closed-toe shoes.

You’ll want to avoid jeans, tank-tops, sweatshirts/hoodies, casual shoes (such as flip flops, crocs, etc.), clothing items with holes, tears, etc. Remember, this is your first impression. Make it one that will last for the right reason!

What should I do to prepare for the interview?
Doing a little research before coming to your interview is always an excellent idea. Knowing as much as possible about the position you’re applying for and Pelican allows you to ask detailed questions, when necessary, and shows that you’re invested in the process!

What should I bring to the interview?
An updated copy of your resume is important! It should reflect accurate dates of employment, primary responsibilities, etc. You’ll also complete background check forms during the first interview, so bringing the phone numbers and addresses of your past employers will help you be better prepared for that step in the process.

I did not get the position. Can I apply again at a later date?
Absolutely! We hope you will! Keep checking our website for positions you may qualify for and be interested in. We’d love to consider you in the future!
