Delete employment status field options

Permissions: Owners

Product tier: Available for Greenhouse Welcome and Greenhouse Onboarding subscription tiers

The employment status field indicates a new hire's type of employment, such as full-time or part-time. You can use this field to automatically assign specific tasks and E-Signatures through a new hire's onboarding plan.

The employment status field includes four default options, which you can update to match your organization's unique needs. This article covers how to delete options from the employment status field.

Note: Deleting an employment status option is a permanent action that can't be undone. Deleting a field option will remove it from your entire organization's Greenhouse Onboarding account, including employee profiles.
