Application Policy

All applicants must submit an employment application form. Candidates submitting cover letters and resumes must  also attach an employment application. Applications and "requested documents", if any, must be received in the Human Resources office by 4:00 pm on the closing date. Those received after the posted deadline will be marked late and may not be considered.

All applications are reviewed in Human Resources for minimum employment qualifications. The requesting department typically determines which qualified applicants will receive an interview invitation.

Interviews and/or testing may not be conducted for 2-6 weeks after the posting removal date. A Human Resources representative will contact applicants as necessary during the screening and selection process. 

Driving Records - When necessary, driving records will be checked and perspective employees must be able to satisfy driving record policy requirements. As part of the screening and selection process records will be reviewed and an individual may be excluded from consideration based upon the driving record points and offenses, or the refusal to grant permission.

Open Until Filled - Applications are accepted until there are sufficient numbers of qualified applicants or a qualified candidate has been identified. The position could possibly close prior to, or be extended past the listed posting close date. The close date for open until filled positions is flexible.

Reasonable Accommodations - It is the practice of the City to provide reasonable accommodations to otherwise qualified disabled employees, and applicants for employment provided it receives appropriate notice of the accommodation needs as required by State and Federal Law.

Your continued patience during the entire selection process is appreciated.
