Candidate Bill of Rights
ARUP hires qualified personnel who have the appropriate education, training, and experience to ensure competent performance of assigned duties. Hiring and promotion decisions are based upon job-related qualifications and performance.
ARUP is fully committed to equal employment opportunity and nondiscrimination. Accordingly, ARUP maintains a work environment free from illegal discrimination, harassment, or other prejudicial treatment and provides employment opportunities without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, or status as a disabled veteran or veteran of the Vietnam era. ARUP does not retaliate against employees who file complaints of discrimination or harassment under this policy.
As an individual applying for a position with ARUP Laboratories, you are entitled to the security and confidentiality of your personal and professional information. We believe that by ensuring your confidentiality we are allowing you to be honest and open during the application and interview process. We believe that honest communication between candidate and interviewer leads to making the best possible matches and ensures the greatest amount of stability for you as well as for the company.
We will email you when we receive your online application, and we will email you when a position is closed. Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications we receive, not every candidate will be contacted beyond this minimum. If we have the need to communicate with you further, we will make every reasonable effort to contact you by phone and/or email. Please be aware, a failure to respond to our attempts to contact you could result in your being removed from the selections process. To avoid this negative consequence, please check your email and voicemail regularly.
Hiring decisions are made based upon a set of specific and defined criteria relevant to the position. All candidates for a given position are asked the same questions during the interview process, with the exception that additional questions may be asked to clarify a response. All factors are applied objectively during the decision-making process.
Feedback is important. If you desire feedback following an interview, you are welcome to contact us. We will, based on the recruiters understanding of your qualifications and the hiring department's needs, make an assessment of your candidacy and do our best to communicate the department’s decision. You send your question via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via postal mail at: HR-Recruiting, ARUP Laboratories, 560 Arapeen Drive, Salt Lake City, Utah 84108.
Respect for Your Time

Be Hired: How to Land Your Perfect Job at ARUP
The job search process is not a one-way street. Although ARUP treats all candidates with courtesy and respect, you can facilitate the process and improve your chances of being hired. While the tips below may seem obvious, they bear repeating.
- Be honest. Don’t inflate your resume, misrepresent your work history, or omit relevant information. Complete, honest disclosure is essential to the search process.
- Be flexible. Make every effort to fit appointments and interviews within your schedule. We understand that you have other commitments, but you should make your job search a priority.
- Be prepared. Learn about ARUP and the department and position for which you are applying. Bring an updated, current copy of your resume with you, and ask relevant questions during the interview, avoiding those whose answers you can easily find on our Web site. Think through answers to questions about your qualifications and past work history.
- Be on time. Arrive before your interview’s scheduled time. Arriving even a few minutes late is unprofessional and creates a negative impression.
- Be professional. Dress in a manner that shows you are serious about the position for which you are applying. Conservative, neat clothing and business-appropriate appearance is a must. ARUP prides itself on a relaxed work environment, but sloppy, tight, or revealing clothing reflects poorly on you as a candidate. If you are applying for a laboratory position, wear closed-toe shoes so that you can tour the lab areas.
- Be yourself. Relax and answer each question concisely. Be polite, cooperative, and enthusiastic. Avoid asking salary-related questions unless a job offer is made. Thank the interviewer when you leave and follow up in writing.
While these suggestions will not guarantee you a position with ARUP, they can greatly increase your chances of employment. We wish you the best of luck in your job search.
