New Hire

Congratulations! You received a job offer. Please print the "Are you prepared for your new employee orientation (PDF)?" Checklist to guide you through the new hire process before reviewing the information below.

Important: Before your first day please review all information on this page. Please open and complete the New Hire Form below. Print one sided copies and bring all documents with you on your first day of employment. In addition, please review the Child Protective Services (CPS) section below to see if you are required to complete a CPS Background Check form.

Form Access

The forms located here work best using a Windows computer with an Adobe PDF reader. iPhone/iPad and Android phones may not have the software to open and complete the forms and we cannot guarantee that they would work. If you need access to a computer as we suggested, we recommend you visit your local County of Roanoke Library. They have computers that have the ability to fill in the standard New Hire Forms. If you are having issues printing the New Hire Forms, you will have an opportunity to complete them on the first day of employment with your manager.

Please do not sign your documents until you attend the Benefit Orientation.
