CERTIFICATION

DIRECTIONS: PLEASE READ AND CHECK THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY BEFORE SIGNING THIS APPLICATION FORM
I hereby certify that I have personally completed this application and that the answers given by me to the foregoing questions and statements are true and complete and that no material fact has been omitted. I understand that any false statements appearing on this or any other employment form will be sufficient reason to end further consideration of this application and not hire me; if discovered after my employment, such false statement will be sufficient reason for dismissal from the services of MST regardless of the time that has elapsed before discovery.
I authorize MST or its designated agents to contact my references and to investigate my past employment, credit history, education credentials, Department of Motor Vehicles driving record, and other employment-related activities, without giving me prior notice of such disclosure. I agree to cooperate in such investigations and release those parties supplying such information to MST from all liability or responsibility with respect to information supplied to MST.
I request, authorize and consent to the procurement of an Investigative Consumer Report and understand that it may contain information about my background, mode of living, character, personal characteristics and general reputation. This authorization in original or copy format shall be valid for one year from the date indicated next to my signature below. According to the Fair Credit Reporting Act, I will be notified if employment is denied because of information obtained from a Consumer Reporting Agency. Additionally, I understand that if requested within 60 days, I will be given a full and accurate disclosure as to the nature and substance of all information provided.
I understand that filing this application in no way assures me a position with MST, and that this application is not, and is not intended to be, a contract of employment. I understand that if employed, my employment and compensation can be terminated, with or without cause, and with or without notice, at any time, and at the option of either MST or myself, subject to terms and conditions of any current Bargaining Agreements or Memorandums of Understanding, which apply to my employment. I further understand that no one other than the Board of Directors of MST has any authority to enter into any agreement for employment for any specified period of time, or to make any agreement contrary to the foregoing.
If employed by MST, I agree to abide by the rules, policies and procedures of MST and subsequent rules, policies and procedures that may become effective after employment, and maintain a Class B license if it is a requirement of the position for which I am hired. I understand that my initial and continued employment may be contingent upon the successful completion of a medical examination, and such examination may include drug and alcohol screening obtained through blood and/or urine samples. I understand that MST believes strongly in a drug-free work environment and agree to abide by the drug and alcohol policies of MST during the time of my employment.
I understand that, in the course of my employment, my photograph or likeness may be used for marketing or public information purposes.
