Before You Start

Drug & Nicotine Screenings

MultiCare is a smoke-free, drug-free workplace. All employment offers are conditioned upon acceptable pre-employment drug tests which include testing for the use of marijuana and nicotine. As part of our commitment to a healthy workplace, we require employees to obtain an annual flu immunization.

Background Screenings

MultiCare conducts a background check including a search of Washington State Patrol records and a third party background investigation. Before we can initiate your background checks, we will need signed copies of four forms:

Washington State Patrol: This enables us to do a search of Washington State Patrol Records. Please fill out Sections C & D only. Signature required. Please return the form to MultiCare. Please do not mail it to WSP.

Disclosure Form: Please complete all three (3) pages of the form. Signature required.

Academic/Education Form: Please indicate your post high school academic/education information. For some positions, your education will be verified by a third-party vendor. (If no post-high school academic/education, please note "Not Applicable" on the form.)

These forms can be downloaded using the link on the right side of this page. Once completed, all of these forms can be faxed or scanned and emailed back to MultiCare.
