Ph: (505) 827-5800
* Completed applications will be kept on file for one year.

Step Two: Interviewing

Completed applications, which meet the job criteria, will be given consideration by the hiring manager. However, this does not guarantee an interview. A determination as to whether an applicant will be interviewed will be based on how well the candidate meets the job qualifications and requirements. If you are to receive an interview, the hiring manager or the Recruiting Department will contact you.

Step Three: Hiring

It is important to understand that only the Human Resources Department will make formal offers of employment. Any communication by either principals or interview committees suggesting employment, whether implicit or explicit, must be considered as a recommendation to employ only. It is not a job offer.

Once the hiring decision has been made, a member of the Human Resources Department will offer the candidate the position.

Step Four: New Hire Meeting

All candidates who have accepted a position are required to attend New Hire Meeting with the Human Resources Department prior to their first day of work. A hired candidate is not considered an MCS employee until they complete their New Hire Meeting. As part of the employment process, it will be necessary to complete a background clearance through the New Mexico Department of Public Safety and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

If you have been fingerprinted by the New Mexico Public Education Department within the last two years, you must sign a release form for those prints to be released to us.

Once all necessary paperwork has been completed and documents have been cleared, Human Resources will send a clearance to your Principal or Supervisor and you will then be notified and be able to start work.
