New Employee Orientation
New Employee Orientation (NEO) consists of three phases. Phase 1 is an in-person session and Phase 2 is an online session. Phase 3 is an optional in-person session, but highly recommended for those unfamiliar with ECU. The Phase 1 session is usually held all day on Mondays beginning at 8:30 am. Phase 2 of orientation is to be completed by all new employees within 10 days after attending Phase 1 of orientation. Phase 3 is generally held every other Tuesday from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. The purpose of NEO is to review key policies, benefits information, ensure all necessary new hire paperwork is complete, and most importantly welcome you to Pirate Nation! You will receive the date of your NEO session once you are offered your position.
