The process works differently for Parks & Recreation seasonal employees as well as Police Officer and Firefighters. If you applied for a seasonal position, those applications are screened by the Parks Department.
If you applied for a Police Officer or Firefighter position, there is a physical agility test, written test as well as background checks and other criteria, which must be met prior to further consideration being given.
Police and Fire applicants are initially ranked according to written scores. The department will schedule oral interviews. The number of interviews is dependent on the number requested by the hiring department. Therefore, all applicants may not necessarily be interviewed. Other steps in the process are conducted at various times such as background checks. Once a candidate has successfully completed all steps in the process they are put on an eligibility list for up to one year. At any time during the year, the department has the option of hiring anyone from the list in any order.
