Step 1:

Submit an interest card to the WVFC Recruiting and Membership Team. (Interest Card)

Step two takes approximately one month:

  • Schedule and attend your Interview with the recruiting team.
    • § If you are a junior applicant the interview will take place with your parents or guardian in attendance.
    • § If your interview goes well you will receive an application.
  • Submit your notarized applications with a copy of your driver’s license, birth certificate and driving record to your recruiter.
    • § Incomplete applications will not be accepted or held.
    • § If you have been a resident of Virginia for fewer than six months, please attempt to obtain your driving record from the state of your previous residence. Do not let this delay your application process; simply include a letter with your application explaining the status of your driving record.
    • You can get a copy of your DMV driving record online for a fee. Here is a link to request your Virginia State driving record
    • If you are a high school student, even over the age of 18, you must include a copy of your most recent report card with your application.
  • The recruiter will take your application to the Fauquier County membership meeting for submission. A criminal history check will take place.
  • When a satisfactory criminal history check has been returned you will be notified to schedule your physical and to attend the next business meeting to be introduced to the Company.
  • At the next Company Business meeting you will have the opportunity to say a few words and you will be introduced to the company.
    • § You will then have to complete the Introduction Cards over the next few weeks, visiting each evening’s duty crew.

**The date of return of your background investigation will dictate when you will become eligible to be voted into the company. Those applying MUST have a completed background letter on file before you can be submitted to the roles as a member. Once the above completes and we receive the return on your background investigation you can proceed to step three**.
