***All applications must clearly indicate how the Minimum Qualifications, if applicable, are met. Provide as much detail as possible under employment history along with the hours worked per week at each job.***
**PURPOSE**
The purpose of this examination is to establish an eligible list from which to fill present or possible future vacancies in this classification. For each vacancy, a Department Director/Division Manager has the choice of the applicants in the top group. This list will remain in effect for six months, unless exhausted, superseded by a new eligible list or extended for another six months by the Human Resources Committee.
***TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE TEST***
The examination will consist of an evaluation of the applicant's responses on the official employment application form that includes supplemental questions regarding the applicant's training and experience. Your responses will be scored and there are no test retakes. You will be notified of your results by email.
The exam content as described above may be modified depending upon the number of applicants or other factors that influence the practicality or usefulness of this selection process. Where minor differences in actual test scores do not reflect meaningful differences in ability, those scores will be statistically grouped resulting in a tie among those applicants.

As such, interested persons should make application promptly. Applicants will be tested in groups as they apply.

The original rank of persons on the eligible list may change as later applicants are tested and added to the list.

Applications will not be accepted after the posted closing date.
