Are Freemasons expected to give preference to fellow members in job applications?

Absolutely not – it is a misuse of membership to favour Masons over other candidates for job applications, promotions, contracts and similar.

On becoming a Freemason, each candidate states unequivocally that he expects to make no material gain from his membership. At various stages during the three ceremonies of his admission (and upon presentation of the final admission certificate), he is reminded that attempts to obtain preferential treatment or material gain for himself or others will not be tolerated. Penalties for abuse of membership are strictly enforced, and range from temporary suspension to expulsion.
