What Does The Typical Recruitment Process Look Like?

We value your time, so we move as quickly as we can throughout the process. Once you apply online to a Lewis career and we receive your application, we will communicate with you by email, text and/or phone to inform you about potential next steps or decisions. Should you move on to an interview, it may be by remote video interview (Zoom or FaceTime), phone or face-to-face. The first interview is typically with our Recruiting team, then you may move on to meet hiring managers. For tips to succeed in interviews, read some of the articles on our Lewis Blog.

What Is Jobvite And How Does Lewis Use It?

Jobvite is our Applicant Tracking System (ATS) that integrates with this website. It is the software we use to advertise our jobs, collect resumes, review resumes and move candidates through the process. Once you apply, you will receive an automated confirmation by email that your information was received. You will be able to sign into our system at any time using your credentials to see the status of your application(s), see the jobs you have applied for and/or update your contact information.

Can I Apply To Multiple Locations/Positions?

Yes. However, there are some things to consider before applying. Regarding location, ask yourself: Will this location work for me? What will my commute be? Am I willing to relocate? When applying to a position, consider: Is this a job I can see myself enjoying? Do I have the skills and work experience that match this job? Could this job lead to a career path I am passionate about? Thinking about these questions before applying will only increase your chances at Lewis.

Is The Interview Process The Same For Every Position?

Depending on the position, the sourcing, recruiting, and selection processes are similar. You may go through several steps, including but not limited to: phone or video interviews; online assessments, interviews with the hiring manager and/or panel interviews with applicable team-members. These steps are important, not just for Lewis, but for you. We want to find great people with the right combination of talent and skills as quickly as we can, but we also want you to feel it’s a great match and the potential for a long-lasting career.

How Soon Can I Re-Apply If I Was Declined For A Position?

We’ll consider you a candidate for any positions for which you directly apply at any time. However, if you find you are applying multiple times for the same position and being declined, it may be time to re-examine your skill set, background of work and/or interview style to gauge if that particular role is the best fit.

After You Apply

After submitting your resume or application, Lewis will review your experience for a potential match with our opportunities. Next steps may include the following:


Lewis uses online assessments to measure traits that generally do not emerge from interviewing. These user-friendly tools assess and measure against proven competencies to help define a successful match.

Depending on the position, you may be asked to complete short online assessments in categories such as: sales, customer service, computer skills and basic reasoning.


At Lewis, we want to learn why you’re interested in us and what unique strengths you would bring to the team. Interviews will likely be on video, face-to-face, or over the phone. Interviews could be one-on-one or a panel interview with two or three people. We’ll ask questions about your related experience and accomplishments. This is your opportunity to learn about us, so come prepared with questions. We hope to learn more about you and your strengths and provide understanding of our unique culture and opportunities.

Note: During the COVID-19 pandemic, all interviews will be remote/on video or phone.


Congratulations! If you land the job, you’ve proven you have a lot to offer. Next steps will be your offer letter packet, background/drug-screening process and the scheduling of your first day. The background/drug-screen process usually takes 4-6 days to complete. If you’re leaving a job, giving your employer a two-week notice is perfectly fine. If you need longer, we can discuss and agree to your first day. Your first day onboarding and training plan will be ready for you when you start.

Welcome to Lewis!


Once you have accepted a Lewis career and completed your new-hire process, your Onboarding will begin. This includes a first-day meeting with our Recruiting team to complete some last documents, then moving on to meet your new supervisor, your new team and begin your training. You will also be invited to an informative and fun orientation led by our knowledgeable and engaging Lewis Training and Development staff. Together, it makes for an exciting first day, followed by immersive weeks and months. Congratulations and welcome to the Lewis family!
