 -----

Positions come open frequently because we are located in an area where people move frequently - spouses complete school, people move in and out with the military, and so on.

Benefits: ACHR offers excellent benefits for most regular positions including: eight paid holidays, annual leave and sick leave (accrue a day for each month worked), employer-paid BC/BS health, dental and vision insurance (family coverage optional; paid by employee), life insurance,  defined benefits retirement plan, optional flex benefits plan, and ongoing training.  Health insurance is granted after the three-month evaluation for those who work 30 or more hours/week.  Other benefits do not take effect until after a new employee has successfully completed a six-month introductory period.

Applications: If you are interested in working at ACHR feel free to complete an application, which we will hold for six months in case a position becomes available. You may submit a resume.  However we must have a completed application for anyone who wants to be considered for a position.

Required Documents: Because our staff work with or near children, we require clear Criminal Background Check (with fingerprints cleared through the ABI and FBI using DHR's system through COGENT), clear child abuse and sex offender checks and a medical report & TB skin test on the Department of Human Resources Form.  

These items, as well as proof of education (diploma - bring original & we will make a copy; classroom positions also may require transcript) and 3 work references, MUST be completed before selection for employment.  Some positions (such as Family Services Worker, Home Visitor, Bus Driver, and some positions in other areas such as maintenance)  also require that staff drive and so we require a clear (or nearly) clear Motor Vehicle Record (MVR).

Other things to know: ACHR is drug-free, smoke-free and, to the extent practicable, scent-free workplace, and is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

How to Apply:   If you are interested in any position, stop by our central office (950 Shelton Mill Road, Auburn, AL) to pick up an application or to request more information.  Or you may email a resume/vita to alma.gholston@achr.com and follow with an application.
