Frequently Asked Questions

I’m a current team member; how do I refer someone?

We love referrals! The process to submit a referral and be eligible for the referral bonus varies between Wisconsin and Illinois, so it’s important to follow the correct process. Review the Referral FAQ for step-by-step instructions or visit Caregiver Connect or Advocate Online for additional details.

How long does it take to complete the application?

The average time to set up your profile and complete the initial process is about 15 minutes, but we encourage you to take your time so you’re happy with the results. Once your profile is created, it takes only a few minutes to apply for additional jobs.

How will I know if you’ve received my application?

Will I be contacted by a recruiter to let me know the status of my application?

For many open positions, we get a large number of applicants. Unfortunately, this means it’s hard to give every candidate the individualized attention that we’d like. You can check the status of your application at any time – see the question above, “How do I check the status of my application?” If we think you’re a good fit for one of the positions you apply to, you will hear from one of our recruiters on next steps.

Will I need to complete a drug screening?

Every new hire to Advocate Health is subject to our drug screening policy, but per the policy, not every new hire will be drug-screened

Will my interview be in-person?

Some interviews will be done virtually/online, but you may be invited onsite for an in-person interview, job shadow or event. For the safety of everyone, we ask that if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms or have and a recent household exposure or positive COVID-19 test, that you inform us and we will gladly reschedule when you’re feeling better.

Symptoms include:

  • Subjective temperature: fever > 99.9F or >37.8C
  • Respiratory symptoms: new or worsening cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing or sore throat
  • GI symptoms: new onset nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
  • Miscellaneous: new onset chills, congestion, runny nose, muscle or body aches, headache, fatigue or loss of taste or smell

Will I need to take a physical?

A mandatory pre-placement health screening will include health history, vision testing, tuberculosis check, and vaccination record. This health screening takes place at one of our many facilities after a contingent job offer is made.

What do I need for the required criminal background check?

As a health care organization, we’re required by state law to complete a criminal background check on all of our newly hired team members. If you are offered a position with us, you will be required to complete the appropriate authorization and disclosure form which gives Advocate Health permission to run the check. You should be prepared to provide information on any pending criminal charges, as well as any felony or misdemeanor convictions, or any guilty pleas or findings for municipal ordinances or tribal court violations. While very few offenses will prevent your hire, failure to disclose any of them may result in a withdrawal of the offer of employment, so it’s best to be upfront and honest on your authorization form.

Does Advocate Health require a flu vaccine?

Yes. As an integral part of our wellness program, we require all team members to receive the annual flu vaccination at no cost to them. This helps to ensure that we are doing all we can to help each other live well, including team members, employed physicians, all contracted personnel, plus any students and trainees in any setting. There is an exception process for those team members with a nationally accepted, documented, medical contraindication or religious belief.

What should I do if I’m interested in working for Advocate Health, but haven’t found the right opportunity?

If you haven’t found the right opening or aren’t ready to submit an application just yet, join our Talent Network so we can keep you in mind for future opportunities that fit your experience and interests. We’ll also keep you updated quarterly on our latest news, team members spotlights, newly opened jobs, and more!
