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.

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 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.
