We thought you might find it helpful to have a general idea of what to expect on your first day of work and have provided some basic information on this page to help you prepare. This information is subject to change and we haven't included every detail here – just major points to help make your first day easier. If you have any questions, please contact your new manager or HR at .

Now that you have accepted a position with us, the next step is to complete new hire documents and benefits enrollment. We've made the information on this page printable so that you may have a copy to bring with you on your first day if you like, or refer back to as you move through our hiring and on-boarding process.

What to Bring on Your First Day
