Is the process different for out of state applicants?
The only difference between the out of state process and the process for someone from Arizona is the ease and availability to access the steps in the hiring process over time. The amount of time it takes to get hired for an applicant from in state and an applicant from out of state can be the same. The entire process can take 2-3 months, which can be different for each applicant.
