Competencies and Qualifications
Tips for Applicants
We always accept applications and occasionally hire employees in the spring and summer. However, we hire the majority of our employees for the busy fall season. We usually schedule open interviews for the fall season near the beginning of September.
We will review your application and contact you only if we have a position for you or if we would like to schedule a follow up interview. We keep all applications on file and review them as positions become available. If we don’t contact you right away, it does not mean we might not contact you in the future.
If you file an application during the year and don't hear back from us, we recommend that you re-apply in the beginning of September. We do not accept phone calls -we will call you if we have a position available for you.
Every Linvilla Employee begins as a seasonal employee, how long the season lasts depends on the department and position for which you are hired. When business allows in the spring and summer we first review recent employees for re-hire before hiring new employees.
We appreciate when parents bring their children to apply for a position with us. However, we ask that parents allow their children speak for themselves, request the application themselves, and conduct the interview (if applicable) on their own. Allowing them to do so gives us a much better chance to get to know the applicant, which in turn gives them a better chance of obtaining a position with Linvilla Orchards.
