After I have applied online, how can I contact a hiring manager or a recruiter?

Due to the large volume of applications we receive, it is not possible for us to provide the name, telephone number or email address of recruiters or hiring managers. Recruiters will review resumes/profiles and will respond only to those external candidates who best match the qualifications of our openings. To ensure you do not miss opportunities, status will be continually provided by email whether you are selected for the position or not.

When can I expect to hear from Pioneer after applying to a position?

Screening for most positions is completed within the first four weeks after the position is posted. During that time, if you are selected to be screened, you will be contacted by a recruiter. All interviewed candidates will receive communication regarding the outcome within seven days of their interview. Candidates that are not selected for a screening or interview will not be notified by email, but may be matched to other potential openings.

How should I prepare for an interview with Pioneer?

Be prepared to provide specific examples of your behavior in particular situations and how the behaviors helped you develop in previous roles. Pioneer is also looking for examples of how you have demonstrated specific competencies needed for the role you are interviewing for. Be mindful that certain agreements with your current/previous employers could impact your ability to work at Pioneer.
