Hiring Process FAQs


If you have questions about applying to Allies, our interview process or new hire process, we have answers.


How do I learn about available positions at Allies?
All available positions are listed on the Open Positions page.

How do I apply for a position at Allies?
All applications must be submitted online. Visit the Open Positions page and click on the position that is most suitable for you and follow the on-screen instructions.  If you do not see what you are looking for, you will be redirected to our staffing agency partner, Aurora Staffing, to see a list of positions they are recruiting for Allies.

I am a former employee of Allies. Can I reapply?
Yes. We will review your application. Should we be interested in interviewing you, we will contact you.

How do I know if my application was submitted successfully?
If you are applying to one of the positions on the Allies website, after you submit your application, you will receive an email from NoReply@eprimepoint.com. When applying to jobs, it is best to regularly check your email inbox. If you cannot find an email from NoReply@eprimepoint.com after applying, please check your Junk or Spam folder.  If you are applying for a position via our staffing agency partner, Aurora Staffing, after completing a short APPLY NOW form, you will be contacted directly by one of their recruitment specialists.

I do not see a job or location I am interested in on Allies’ Open Positions webpage. What should I do?
Please continue to check our Open Positions page weekly.  Available positions may change daily and we regularly post new positions that may be of interest to you.

Does Allies require pre-employment drug testing?
Yes, candidates applying for employment as direct care staff are required to undergo pre-employment drug testing. In addition, our agency performs random drug testing and retains the right to require an employee to submit to testing for drug and/or alcohol use as a continuing condition of employment as the agency deems necessary for the safe and efficient operations of each program and as permitted under applicable law.


I applied for a job but didn’t hear back. What should I do?
We thoroughly review each application that we receive and this takes time. If you do not hear back from us three weeks after you apply, please feel free to email our recruiters at recruiting@alliesnj.org (Allies) or eleana.rice@aurorastaffing.com (Aurora Staffing) to check on the status of your application.

What is your selection process?
The selection process often begins with a pre-screening phone call. If you meet the qualifications for the position, we will invite you for an interview with the hiring manager (Allies) or the recruiter (Aurora Staffing).

I am a current Allies employee and have referred a job candidate. The candidate applied but has not been contacted. Why not?
We begin the selection process with a pre-screening phone call to those we believe meet the qualifications of the position, including location and hours. If we do not reach out to someone who applied, it may be because they did not meet the qualifications or the position has been filled.


When do I begin training?
Once you have submitted all of the necessary paperwork and we have received the results of your criminal background check and screenings, a member of the Allies Human Resources Department, or Aurora Staffing, will contact you to schedule your paid New Hire Training which is typically five days. Our New Hire Training usually begins every other Monday.

What if I took some of the required training somewhere else? Do I still need to attend all five days of training?
If you can provide certificates and/or proof that you took the required training elsewhere, such as CPR/First Aid, we will review that, and if acceptable, you will be exempt from that particular day(s) of training.

What paperwork does Allies need before I can be scheduled for orientation and begin work?

We will need:

  • A signed and completed application with accompanying required documents.
  • A collection of “New Hire Paperwork” which may include a Shift Acknowledgment Form; Consent, Disclosure and Release Forms; TB Risk Assessment Form; Training Requirements Form; cleared background checks, and an Employment Eligibility Form (I-9)*
  • Proof of identity and authorization to work

*For more information about acceptable documents for the I-9 Form, click here.

Will Allies accept the fingerprint results I received through another agency or another job?
No, the fingerprints must be done with Allies.

May I submit the results of a physical I previously received?
Yes, but it must have been completed within one (1) year of your date of hire to qualify.

May I submit the results from a past Tuberculosis (TB test)?
Yes, we will accept the results from a PPD skin test, blood test, or chest x-ray within one (1) year of your date of hire.  We will also accept an x-ray within five (5) years along with doctor certification less than one year old.
