Frequently Asked Questions
1. Am I applying for a state position?
No, you are applying for a receivership position with the Florida Department of Financial Services Division of Rehabilitation and Liquidation (the "Receiver"). Receivership positions are funded from the insurance companies in receivership. Because these positions are not funded from state funds, they are not state positions.
2. What is the organizational structure of the Receiver?
The Receiver performs its duties under the supervision of the Deputy Chief Financial Officer or the General Counsel who, in turn, reports directly to the Chief Financial Officer. The Receiver is divided into seven functional areas, each headed by a senior manager who reports to the Division Director or Assistant Division Director. The various sections include Accounting, Administrative Services, Claims, Estate Management, Legal, and Human Resources.
3. Is the Receiver an at-will employer?
Yes, employment with the Receiver is at-will. Employment-at-will means an employee may resign at any time and the employer may terminate an employee at any time, with or without cause. At-will employment is for no definite period and can end at any time.
4. How do I submit a resume to the Receiver?
Resumes should be submitted through email at email@example.com. If you are unable to submit your resume electronically, it can be hand-delivered or mailed to the following address:
Division of Rehabilitation and Liquidation
Human Resources Office
325 John Knox Road
Atrium Building, Suite 101
Tallahassee, Florida 32303
Resumes may be hand-delivered to our office Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Please keep in mind that resumes must be received prior to the close of business on the closing date of the position. Resumes not received prior to the deadline will not be considered. Please remember to include your email address on your resume.
5. Does the Receiver accept resumes at any time?
No, the Receiver only accepts resumes when a vacant position has been posted and only for the posted position(s).
6. How can I confirm that my resume was received?
Upon receipt of your resume, you will receive an email from the Human Resources Office notifying you that your resume has been received. If you do not receive a confirmation email within three business days of applying, please call the Human Resources Office at (850) 413-4546 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
7. Once my resume is received, how long will it take to review my application?
There are many variables in a recruitment and selection process. The timeframe of each position’s recruitment and selection process varies; therefore, we cannot establish an exact timeframe.
8. How will I be contacted regarding the status of the application process?
Candidates chosen for interviews will be contacted by a hiring supervisor by phone. Once a candidate has been selected for a position, all candidates will be notified by email. Occasionally, an application review process will be placed on hold. In these cases, candidates will be notified by email and will not be required to submit a new application should the process be reopened.
9. What are some of the most common reasons resumes are rejected?
- Resume does not have the dates of employment.
- Resume does not indicate the skills, license, education, experience, etc. that meet the minimum qualifications.
- Applicant’s contact information is incorrect.
10. I'm currently a state employee. If I accept employment with the Receiver, can I transfer my leave balances and continue with the Florida Retirement System and the State's Deferred Compensation program?
If you are a state employee (Career Service, SES and SMS) and you become employed by the Receiver, you cannot transfer your leave balances. You must cash out your balance with the state agency from which you are departing. The Florida Retirement System is portable and the Receiver is a participating entity. Consequently, the service credit you will earn by being employed by the Receiver will be combined with the service credit you earned at your current and/or prior state agencies. The Receiver also participates in the State's Deferred Compensation program. Upon hire, new employees can continue participation in this program by completing the necessary paperwork.
