**Application Tips**

Make sure you fill out the application the best you can.  Try not to leave anything blank, put n/a if the box doesn't apply to you.  Check and DOUBLE check your email address is put down correctly.  We notify everyone who is getting an interview by email not the telephone!!!  Make sure you check your spam folder.  The email will come from someone with a Wild River Country email address or from a signup genius email from Collette Shillcutt.  Please watch for either of those! If you are a previous employee make sure you put it on the application, put when it was and what department. If you are applying for Pool Tech, select Aquatics as the department and make sure to put Pool Tech somewhere on the application. Make sure you tell us about YOU in the "what you can contribute to Wild River Country" box. Applications with nothing in this box don't even get considered!  If you don't tell us all the wonderful things about you then who will?!? Also in this box you should type specifically what you want to do in the department you chose.

Good Luck!
