How do I get on the interview list?
After the closing date, all applications are reviewed to determine which applicants will be contacted for an interview. The hiring department may do further review and/or may conduct some preliminary review (e.g. telephone interview) to narrow down the candidates and determine which candidates they would like to bring in for an interview.

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.
