Application Process

To apply for a position from the Lottery Career Center, click on the link "Apply for this job online" and complete a profile and Lottery Employment Application. Resumes may be attached to the profile, but the application process is not complete until the Lottery Employment Application has been completed and submitted. All applications must be submitted electronically through the Lottery Career Center using the electronic Oregon Lottery® Employment Application. The Lottery no longer accepts State of Oregon PD 100 forms or Lottery Internal Applications for positions with the Lottery.

  • The Oregon Lottery reserves the right to change, withdraw, close, or re-post job announcements as business needs dictate.
  • If you are a person with a disability and need assistance in the application process, call 503-540-1315 or e-mail
  • Because the Lottery believes in developing and retaining its employees, positions may be filled by current employees and as a result, every vacancy that occurs may not be opened to external candidates.

Screening & Interviews

Once an application is submitted, it is screened by Human Resources (HR), to determine if the candidate meets the education and experience required for the job. Those applicants who best meet the requirements are referred to the appropriate hiring manager for further consideration. If an applicant is selected for an interview, the HR recruiter will contact the applicant. Phone screens may be conducted to further clarify a candidate’s qualifications.

Interviews at the Oregon Lottery are typically performed by a panel of supervisors or managers. A phone interview may be conducted in the event an applicant is out of the area and cannot appear in person. Once the process has begun, in-person interviews may involve multiple rounds including less formal “meet the staff” interviews.

Background Check

Once a candidate completes the interview process, hiring managers identify finalists to proceed to the background investigation. This is a required step that all prospective Lottery employees must pass to ensure the security and integrity of Lottery operations. The background check includes:

  • Fingerprinting
  • Criminal history
  • Credit history
  • Tax records
  • Educational Documents
  • Driving record
  • Affiliation with the gaming industry
  • Employment references
