Application Frequently Asked Questions

Are all of Ahern’s current job openings listed online? 
There are certain unionized field and shop positions that we work directly with our local union halls for talent so they may not be posted. All other current job openings are posted on our website.    

How often are job postings updated?
We are continually updating our postings as they become available.

I would like to apply, but no current openings interest me. Can I still submit my application?
If there are no vacancies that interest you, we encourage you to join our Talent Community to let us know your desired position(s) and location(s). You can join from the main landing page of this site or by clicking Login/Create Job Alert at the top right. We’ll send you updates at your chosen frequency as job postings become available that match your desire.

What if I’m interested in more than one position?
To be considered for multiple positions, you should apply to each one individually. We encourage you to apply for all positions for which you feel qualified and are interested in. 

How do I apply?
Ahern only accepts online applications. Each job opening listed on our website has a button located at the top right corner of the page. When you click on this button, you will be automatically directed to join our Talent Community, then directed to the application process. You will know you have finished the application process when you receive the following message on your screen:

"Your resume/application has been successfully submitted. Ahern will be following up with you via e-mail to inform you of your status. Please continue to check your e-mail for additional information."

We ask that you do not re-send your resume to us via mail or fax after you have submitted it online as we only accept applications electronically.

*If you do not have an email address, we highly recommend that you set up an e-mail address through one of the free internet services so you can submit your resume online.

What happens to my application after I have submitted it online?
We follow up with every application. Your application will be reviewed by one of our Recruiters who will then contact you by phone or email. In most cases, you should expect a response within two weeks. 

If you are interested in my application, what is the process from there?
Depending on the role the process may vary, but generally may consist of contact, interview, reference check, offer and drug screen. Candidates not chosen will receive confirmation that another candidate was selected.

How do I know if a job has been filled?
We will always make sure that you are notified of the final decision of your application. As soon as an offer of employment has been accepted, the vacancy will be removed from our site. 

How long will my application be kept on file?
Once submitted, your application will remain in our applicant database indefinitely and you will continue to receive job alerts from the Talent Community at the frequency of your choosing. The frequency of job alerts can be customized by you at any time.
