• STEP 1: BACKGROUND/FINGERPRINTING OR DRUG SCREENING

    Prior to reporting for work, all new employees must successfully pass a background check. Directions on how to complete the background check through Cogent Systems.

    Applicants wanting to drive a bus for HCS must meet the Alabama State Department of Pupil Transportation requirements and will be required to complete a post-offer drug screen.  Once an employment offer is made, this drug screen form will be provided by the HCS Transportation Department (205-439-1100).

    STEP 2: COMPLETE NEW HIRE DOCUMENTS

    Hoover City Schools currently processes all new hires via our electronic onboarding system.  Once an applicant has completed the background check and is recommended, the Human Resources Department will email a link where a Pre-Employment Checklist/forms must be completed electronically prior to beginning work.
