Those applying to a safety-sensitive position will need to pass a pre-employment drug test as a condition of employment.

Can I work remotely?

MW&L is a close-knit group. It’s one of those places where you walk down the hall to discuss a project with a co-worker, then go a few doors down to talk with another co-worker about the latest plan revisions. Because of this culture, most positions will not be hybrid positions. We currently have no employees working remotely.

What happens to my application after I send it?

After you complete the application, a screen will appear that says, “Thank you for applying”. This is confirmation that the online application process is complete. A separate confirmation email will not be sent.

Next, your application is reviewed to confirm that you meet the minimum qualifications and screening criteria for the position. Then, your application information is forwarded to the appropriate hiring manager. Typically, applicants are contacted within 10 days of the closing date for a position if selected to interview.

Is a resume and a cover letter required, along with the application?

Yes, all positions require a resume and cover letter be submitted with the completed application.

The Education and Experience sections of the application, as well as any supplemental questions, must be filled out completely. Resumes will not be accepted in lieu of the required application
and supplemental questionnaire. Incomplete applications may be disqualified from the selection process.

Does MW&L make reasonable accommodations for applicants?

Yes. MW&L is committed to ensuring equal opportunity in employment for qualified persons with disabilities and disabled veterans. This includes reasonable accommodations for alternative application methods if you are unable or limited in your ability to use or access our online application system or our interview process, as a result of your disability.
