As a federal contractor and an equal opportunity employer committed to ensuring that our workplace is inclusive and diverse, UAB is required to monitor and periodically report to the government the number of employees who have a disability or who are protected veterans.

Submission of this information is voluntary, and refusal to provide it will not subject you to any adverse treatment or be used in any employment decision.  Email invitations to participate in the online survey will be sent from UAB Human Resources.

As one of Alabama’s largest employers, our organization is dedicated to attracting and hiring industry leaders and top talent. Faced with an increasingly competitive job market, we evaluated our existing recruiting system and determined the need to move to a more forward-looking and user-friendly system. After several months of analysis and product reviews, UAB, UAB Hospital, and UAB Health System selected Oracle Taleo as the new recruiting system to help meet our overall goals and objectives.

Read more about this change and how it affects hiring managers, recruiters, and current staff here.

This integrated system best supports the needs of our HR staff and hiring managers as well as streamlines the application process for candidates in order to help fill positions quickly. The official cut over date from our current system to Taleo is scheduled for 4/20/15.

What you need to know about this transition:

Hiring Managers
  • If you are hiring or anticipate hiring for open positions between now and 4/20/15:
  • To help with our transition, we encourage you to have your existing classify new/reclassify CRF’s approved at the department level by 4/16. Beginning on 4/17, the existing CRF will be replaced with the new PAR/CRF form.  More information about the new PAR/CRF can be found here.
  • All hiring managers are encouraged to attend a training session to learn the new system before go-live on 4/20. Click here to view the class schedule and register.
  • For additional information about the new hiring process and resources to help you during this transition, click here or contact your HR Consultant.
Current UAB and UAB Medicine Employees
  • One of the many benefits of the new system is the ability to sign on and apply for jobs using your BlazerID and password. Once the new system is live, you will also be able to search internal jobs available to current UAB employees.

Thanksgiving Holiday Service Schedule

UAB Parking & Transportation will be running on a holiday service schedule Thanksgiving Day and Friday, November 28. To minimize the impact, gates will be raised at the 6th Avenue parking deck on both days to allow parking for employees who normally use the remote lots. The revised bus and shuttle schedule is as follows:
  • Thursday, November 27 – No Blazer Express bus service or Blazer Express Highlands van service.
  • Friday, November 28 – No Blazer Express bus service, but the Blazer Express Highlands van service will operate on its normal schedule.
Safety escorts will still be available both days, as usual, by calling 4-8772. Click here for more information.
The full Blazer Express schedule and system map can be found at

Location Update

Beginning Monday, November 24, 2014, the Blazer Express that runs between UAB Hospital-Highlands and Spain Wallace will change pick-up and drop-off locations at Highlands. The new pick-up and drop-off location will be at the front door of Highlands. The pick-up and drop-off at Spain Wallace will remain the same. This move is to better serve our patients and reduce traffic at the Highlands Emergency Room Ramp.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact UAB Parking & Transportation.
