How We Hire
Q. How long will the interview or hiring process take?
A. The timing will vary based on the number of candidates and interviews scheduled. To help reduce the time for interviewing and hiring, the best things you can do are to:
- Fully complete our on-line application with your recent employers (last 7 yrs) and education.
- Be prepared for our background screening process by having the names and dates of employment for your recent employers. Plan to take the drug screen (within 3 days of offer). When former employers are no longer in business, have W2s available for verification.
Q. Does Knipper Health require Covid-19 vaccinations of contributors?
A.At this time, Knipper Health does NOT require that our contributors be vaccinated for Covid-19, or other viruses. However, as a company immersed in the health care world, we do encourage our contributors to become fully vaccinated, and periodically, we may request verification of vaccination status. For the health and safety of our contributors, and for the continuity of our service to clients and patients, we do have established protocol and expectations for addressing Covid-19.
Q.If I was hired and working on-site, would I have to wear a mask/face covering daily?
A.Currently we do not require the use of a mask/face covering. However, if by choice a contributor prefers to wear one, that option is available and respected.
Q.What is the best way to prepare for an interview?
A.Do your research. Review our website. Assess why you want to work here. Determine how your skillsets relate for the position/company. Prepare questions for the interview team. Dress to impress. Remember that non-verbal communication often says more than verbal communication. Be engaged. Be on time. Additionally, for video interviews: Check your technology effectiveness for internet connectivity. Ensure you have a quiet place for the conversation.

“I started at Knipper Health in 1995 as a Network Administrator. Throughout the years I have been able to witness and participate in many facets of Knipper Health’s ascension to the largest provider of sample management services. Change is constant; from the sale of the company to McKesson, to the divestiture back to Jim Knipper, and throughout the numerous acquisitions there has never been a lack of opportunity for growth as evidenced by my current role as Senior Vice President.
What does not change is the most important which are the values and principles instilled into the company by Jim and his father Joe from inception. Today, these values are represented in our CHART principles and provide a foundation for our actions.
As we continue to evolve and embark on our next chapter it is still exciting to be part of a team that is focused on delivering value to our customers, community, company, and contributors.”
– David Merkel, Senior Vice President
“I joined Knipper Health in 1992 for a short-term, temporary project; twenty-five years later I am still here. I began as a line assembly worker and over time was able to utilize my skillsets in other departments and positions. I was able to learn and grow into my current position as Sr. Manager of Operations.
The work we do here is not only important to the success of the pharmaceutical companies we service but to the health of patients as well. My time here at Knipper Health and the work we perform has been challenging and satisfying.”
– Carol Chifulio, Senior Operations Manager
“I had the good fortune of meeting a man by the name of Joseph Knipper over 20 years ago. Joe was an amazing man and I was impressed by the respect that he had for his employees. Joe knew everyone by their first name, and he would walk out onto the production floor and give a big hello to anyone who crossed his path. Over the years, Knipper Health has grown and continues to add employees to our team, but in my opinion, we never forgot our roots or what brought us to where we are now – it still feels like the old days. I have always been proud to work for this organization and grateful for what I have learned, and the growth opportunities and career goals that Knipper Health has helped me to achieve.”
– Linda Gallagher, Vice President, Pricing and Business Solutions
