Review the information below after you select your intern, but before they start.

In order to avoid delays in starting your member, please begin the federal background check process (National Agency Check with Inquiries or NACI) and request a PIV card as soon as possible. If you are unsure of how to initiate this, please inquire with your site's HR department.

A Stewards Enrollment Specialist will reach out to your candidate with onboarding task instructions about 4 weeks prior to their intended start date. You will not be notified of their progress unless there are incomplete onboarding tasks that will impact their start date so you can assume no news is good news. 

SIP interns will work with Stewards through each of their online onboarding tasks. If they have questions about those, they should direct them to their Stewards Enrollment Specialist.
