Pre-employment tests

All candidates who are offered a position with Pioneer are subject to pre-employment reference checks and background checks.

We are committed to providing a safe working environment for all of our employees. Pioneer leads its peers in using the more stringent hair follicle drug testing. All of our employees, including office employees, are tested upon hiring.

Job offers and hiring

Once you complete an interview and necessary pre-employment tests, a Pioneer representative will contact you to extend a job offer. Although this is the last step in the hiring process, we expect it will be your first step toward fulfilling your career potential with Pioneer.
