Here's the fine print

Position operates in a shift model,  5 days a week, 8 hours a day and is subject to change.

Schedule is not necessarily a 9am to 6pm model, it will change dependent on the time of year (daylight savings) as the follow-the-sun model has locations which are not affected by DST.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
