This inquiry may include information as to, among other things, my character, general reputation and personal characteristics, as well as information about my work performance and workplace conduct.

I understand that if I am offered a job as a condition of beginning my employment, I may be required to undergo a physical examination and/or drug screen; and I hereby authorize any doctor, hospital, clinic, laboratory or other medical facility to furnish any medical information with reference to me as may be necessary in conjunction with that examination and related considerations.
I understand that, according to federal law, all individuals who are hired must, as a condition of employment, produce certain documentation to verify their identity and United States citizen status or, if aliens, their legal authorization to work in the United States.

I understand that no representative of the Indianapolis Zoo, other than the President/CEO, has the authority to enter into any agreement for any specific periods of time or to make any agreement contrary to the foregoing and that any such agreement must be in writing to be binding on the Indianapolis Zoo.
I understand that if I am offered employment, I will sign an agreement relating to confidential information, if required.
I certify that I am not bound by any employment contract or non-competition agreement that would be breached by any employment that might be offered to me by the Zoo, nor am I in possession of nor will I at any time reveal to the Zoo, under any circumstances, any proprietary or confidential information that is the subject of any contract, non-disclosure agreement or prior work relationship involving any other person or entity.
