A typing test will be administered to those selected for an interview prior to the interview. You will be given a warm-up and two attempts to pass the typing test. If you pass the typing test with the net words per minute required (words typed/minute - errors), you will be interviewed. However, if you do not pass you will not be interviewed.

If you feel you need to practice your typing, we suggest you search on the internet for "free typing test." This will provide you with several options and give you the chance to practice and improve your skills.

If special consideration as a veteran or disabled veteran is of interest to you, you must include a copy of your DD214. In addition, make sure you include photocopies of any applicable licenses, certifications, etc. Please read the Job Announcement carefully to ensure that you provide the documentation needed to show you meet the minimum qualifications. You may also be required to provide copies of your diplomas and/or transcripts of your grades if higher education is a minimum requirement for the position. You are welcome to provide us with a cover letter and resume.
Once you apply, your application is reviewed and, if your qualifications meet the minimum requirements, moved forward on an ongoing basis to the hiring manager for further consideration.  Once the position closes, the hiring manager ranks the applications based on the experience, skills, and abilities shown in the information provided by the candidate in comparison with the job announcement. Additional screening and/or testing may be done at this time. The hiring manager and Human Resources then interviews the most qualified candidates. Depending on the number of qualified applications for a position, only a select number of individuals may receive invitations for interviews. Following the interviews, an applicant is selected and a job offer is extended, contingent on the results of a post-offer, pre-employment Background Check and Drug Screen. The extent of the background checks depends on the position and may include criminal history, credit history, etc. All other candidates are then notified that they werenot selected for the position.
We have a few jobs we recruit for on a continual basis. These jobs may or may not have current openings. For these jobs we put together a "roster" or a list of interested/qualified applicants. We accept applications and screen them to ensure they meet the minimum requirements for the position. The applicants that meet the minimum requirements are kept active on the roster until we begin the next hiring process. Therefore, it is important to understand that if you apply for one of the roster positions, you may not be contacted for several months. If you apply and do not meet the minimums, you will receive an email response thanking you for your interest.
If the position is posted as "Open to City Employees and the General Public," part time City employees must apply and compete with the general public for open full time City jobs that may be available.

However, occasionally a position will be posted internally only. In those cases, part time employees may be eligible to apply depending on the specific qualifications required for the position.
As a part time employee your hours could vary greatly depending on where you work. Some of our part time employees work 5-10 hours a week and some work more than 20. All part time employees, however, must average of no more than 28 hours per week in a 12 month time-period.
