If employed, I agree to maintain confidentiality regarding any information concerning the company that may come to my knowledge. Further, I agree to comply with all of the policies and regulations of the company as set forth in the company’s employee handbook or other communications distributed to all employees.

I understand that neither the completion of this application nor any other part of my consideration for employment establishes any obligation for the company to hire me.

I understand that if I am employed by the company my employment will be for no definite period of time and that my employment can be terminated at any time and for any reason, with or without cause and without prior notice, at the option of either the company or myself. I also understand that this status can only be altered by a written contract of employment, specific to all material terms, that is signed by an authorized officer of the company

I certify that I am at least 18 years of age and am legally authorized to work in the United States.
