Internal Application Process
PHC desires to provide opportunities for professional development and career advancement for our employees. To be eligible to apply for an open position, an employee should meet the minimum qualifications of the position, have completed at least 6 months in their current role, and be in Good Standing as defined in the Good Standing section of the Employee Handbook. PHC encourages managers to give preference to internal candidates who meet or exceed the minimum qualifications of the position.
PHC posts all job opportunities on our electronic job board through UltiPro. Find openings by logging into your UltiPro profile and navigating to Menu > Myself > My Company > View Opportunities. Applying through your UltiPro profile instead of via our external career site will allow you to see postings that are only available to internal candidates and will ensure that your application is flagged as an internal candidate. Positions that are only open to current employees are noted as “Internal” on the job board. If you are interested in more than one opportunity, apply to each posting individually.
At PHC we recognize the importance of taking care of our staff. We offer a comprehensive benefit packages to address a wide range of needs. PHC also recognizes employees for exceptional work through quality and productivity incentive programs and iCare awards for employees who go above and beyond in demonstrating our company values.
Employees who work at least 20 hours per week on a regular basis are eligible for benefits. PHC offers the majority of our benefits on a pre-tax basis. Eligible employees must complete enrollment within 30 days of hire or status change date. Coverage will be effective the first of the month following the hire date.
