Coverage is available for full-time regular service and limited duration employees and family members.

With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, temporary employees may become eligible for health benefits.

Employees have options when it comes to choosing a plan for core benefits, such as medical, dental, prescription, and vision, and will pay only 1% or 5% of the premiums.

What You Can Expect after Applying

Throughout the recruitment process, we are committed to providing timely communication to candidates regarding next steps and the status of application materials. We understand how hard it is to wait for an update, so feel free to check your status at any time by logging into the Career Center. Most of our communications, including invitations to interview, will occur via email. Don't forget to check your email regularly, including your junk/spam folders.

1. Initial Screening

Your resume and screening questions will be reviewed by one of our recruiters to determine if you meet the recommended qualifications for the position.

Application materials for the selected candidates will be passed on to the Hiring Manager for review. The Hiring Manager will decide which candidates are most competitive and will move on to the phone interview phase.

2. Phone Interview

Candidates who advance to the phone interview phase will receive an email invitation to self-schedule their interview time from a selection of time slots. Important: Candidates who do not schedule their interview times will not be considered further.

The phone interview is an opportunity for the recruiter to share information about the Lottery, our benefits, culture, and of course the position. We are interested in learning more about you, your experience, and interest in working for the Lottery.

After all phone interviews are completed, the recruiter will review the results with the Hiring Manager. The Hiring Manager will decide which candidates should move on to the in-person panel interview phase.

3. Panel Interview

Candidates who are selected for the in-person panel interview will receive an email invitation to self-schedule their interview time from a selection of time slots. As with the phone interviews, candidates who do not schedule their interview times will not be considered further.

The panel interview is an opportunity for you to meet the hiring manager and other team members in the organization. The interview phase will focus on the job and you will have time to ask more specific questions.

After all panel interviews are completed, the Hiring Manager and other panel members will review the results and determine which candidate(s) will be invited to complete the security background investigation process.

4. Security Background

The Lottery is required by statute to complete an extensive security background check on all potential new hires. Once the background checks are complete we will work with the Hiring Manager to determine who will receive an offer of employment (Note: passing the security background check does not guarantee an offer of employment).

5. Offer

Offers of employment are made in compliance with the recently passed Pay Equity Bill (HB 2005).  Consideration is given to the successful candidate's relevant education and experience as well as specialized training and any required certifications in comparison to current employees doing work of comparable character.  Lottery will not ask you for your salary history in the course of this process.  Offers will not exceed the maximum of the salary range posted for the recruitment.

FAQ

What if I have trouble completing my profile or uploading my application materials?

Call 503-540-1315 and ask to speak to the recruiter for the job you are applying for, or send an e-mail to: Oregon.lotterycareers@state.or.us

When will I hear from the recruiter about the status of my application materials?

A: You can check the status of your application materials at any time. Most of our communications, including invitations to interview, will occur via email. Don't forget to check your email regularly, including your junk/spam folders.

If I apply for an administrative assistant position will I automatically be considered for other Administrative Assistant openings?

No. You must apply for each position you are interested in.

Does the Oregon Lottery allow employees to telecommute?

Yes, but it depends on the type of job and is normally negotiated with the immediate supervisor.

Does the Oregon Lottery permit employees to work alternate work schedules such as four 10 hours days?

Requests may be considered case-by-case in terms of business need and is normally negotiated with the immediate supervisor. The vast majority of Oregon Lottery employees are required to work a standard 5 day week, 8 hours per day.

If I am offered a job, do I have to start at the minimum of the salary range?

No. In June 2017 Governor Brown signed into law House Bill 2005, also known as the Pay Equity Bill, expanding pay equity protections to all Oregon workers. Compensation will be determined by factors found in the law: seniority, experience, education, training, merit, work location, and travel requirements.

I need to be sponsored in order to be legal to work in the United States. Will the Oregon Lottery sponsor my visa application?

No. The Oregon Lottery does not offer visa sponsorships. Newly hired employees must provide evidence of their legal right to work in the United States within three days of appointment.

I have been convicted of a misdemeanor, can I be employed by the Oregon Lottery?

The circumstances related to a misdemeanor conviction would be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

I have been convicted of a felony, can I be employed by the Oregon Lottery?

No. All felony convictions and gambling related convictions, by law, preclude you from employment with the Oregon Lottery.

What is included in the security background investigation?

The security background investigation includes checking items such as fingerprinting, any affiliations with the gaming industry, criminal history, federal and state income tax compliance, driving history, education verification, employment references and professional references.

How much time does the security background investigation take to complete?

The length of time for a security background investigation varies considerably at any given time. Typically, the investigation takes approximately two weeks to complete (sometimes longer). You may be able to expedite the processing of your security background investigation by providing as many details as possible when completing the background application and contacting your professional references to let them know to expect a call.

If I pass the security background investigation, am I guaranteed a job?

No. Once a candidate passes the background check, all of the information gathered during the entire employment process, including qualifications, interview(s), availability, etc., is considered before deciding to extend an offer to a candidate. Since multiple candidates may be processed through the security background investigation for one position, passing the security background investigation is only one aspect of the process and does not guarantee employment.
