If employed by Pleasant Travel Service, Inc., I understand that unless my employment with Pleasant will be governed by a collective bargaining agreement, my employment is “at will” and can be terminated at any time by Pleasant Travel Service, Inc. or by me, with or without cause and with or without notice, regardless of the method of payment of wages, and may only be changed by the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer in writing.

3.) I certify that I have not knowingly withheld any information that might adversely affect my chances for employment and that the answers given by me are true and correct to the best of my knowledge.
4.) I certify that I have personally completed this application.
5.) I understand that any omission or misstatement of material fact on this application or on any document used to secure employment shall be grounds for rejection of this application or for immediate discharge if I am employed, regardless of the time elapsed before discovery of the misstatement.
6.) I hereby authorize Pleasant Travel Service, Inc. and its agents to thoroughly investigate my references, work record, education and other matters related to my suitability for employment, and verify all data given in this application, on related papers, and in interviews prior to, or at any time during my employment. This includes contacting references and other persons, releasing records maintained by any of these persons, and both public and private organizations, without giving prior notice of such disclosure.

In the event of a dispute or claim against Pleasant Travel Service, Inc., its subsidiaries, employees, or agents having anything to do with my application for employment, employment or separation from employment with Pleasant Travel Service, Inc., I agree that all such claims will be settled by binding arbitration by a neutral arbitrator under the rules of the American Arbitration Association. This means that I give up the right to have the dispute decided in court by a jury. Instead it will be resolved by an impartial arbitrator whose decision is final. Examples of disputes that I agree to submit to arbitration include but are not limited to: claims for discrimination based upon disability, religion, national origin, race, age, sex, or any other basis; sexual or other harassment; wrongful termination; breach of promise; defamation; and all other charges related to any aspect of my employment relationship with Pleasant Travel Service, Inc.
