Working @ UO


Notice for New Hires - Effective January 1, 2020

Due to changes in federal requirements regarding the minimum pay for exempt (salaried) positions, positions currently posted as exempt will be reviewed at the time of hire. Any positions offered under the new federally mandated minimum salary of $35,568 annually ($684 per week) may be offered by the University as non-exempt positions paid on an hourly basis. If you have questions about this, please contact the Talent Acquisition team at uocareers@uoregon.edu or 541-346-5112 (6-5112 from on campus).


Applicant Support

UO posts job opportunities on its online application system, MyTrack, and applications are accepted only through the MyTrack application process.  UO no longer accepts paper applications.

What you need to know:

  • If you have never applied for a job in our online system, you will need to create an applicant profile. You are prompted to create an applicant profile when you choose to apply for a position.
  • If you have previously applied in MyTrack, you can return to your applicant profile by signing in with your email address and password used to set up your account.
  • Once your profile is set up, you will use the same e-mail address and password to log in to the applicant portal and apply for positions, manage applications, and view the status of your applications.
  • We did not import profile information from our previous applicant system, which was discontinued as of March 1.

Background Screening Process

In addition to reviewing employment references, the university conducts job-related background checks prior to hire in order to ensure a safe and secure work environment in which university faculty, staff, students, resources, and assets are protected, while protecting the integrity and confidentiality of information gathered during the evaluation. Background checks are normally conducted on the finalist only following the issuance of a contingent offer of employment. Candidates with questions should contact the Talent Acquisition unit in HR at 541-346-5112 or by email at talent@uoregon.edu.

Background Check Information for Candidates

Veterans and UO

The University of Oregon encourages qualified veterans to apply for positions. As a public employer, the Oregon Veterans’ Preference in Public Employment Law requires UO to give preference for eligible veterans. To be eligible for preference under the Law, veterans have to identify as covered veterans and submit supporting documentation as outlined in the implementing regulations. When applying for positions, it is important for all applicants to clearly demonstrate that they meet minimum and special qualifications. It is important for veterans to highlight transferable skills from their military or other experience that might enhance their candidacy.

For more information, please contact Talent Acquisition in Human Resources, 541-346-5112, uocareers@uoregon.edu (link sends e-mail).
